Halloween high....

My Halloween high continues as the mailman came to the door with several boxes in hand. Two were from my wonderful Sweet and Sinister Swap partners, Jenny and Lesley. Lesley's partner disappeared...poof!...so I gladly adopted her as my own:) Debra was also my partner and I shared what I received from her here.Jenny gave me several pieces of Halloween artwork. They are all absolutely beautiful and are perfect additions to my Halloween decor. Love it all Jenny!!! Can't wait to meet her and her sweetie Aaron in a couple of weeks at Silver Bella!I am now a proud owner of one of Jenny and Aaron's Charlotte portraits. FaBulouS!!!!Lesley gave me this neat spooky glitter tree that reminded me of the card I bought at the House of Seven Gables when I was recently in Salem.She must have been hungry when she put my package together, look at all of these yummy Halloween treats. Thanks Lesley!!
I went to several very good estate sales this morning on my usual Saturday rounds. I found some neat stuff. This dress form fits perfectly with my metal facination lately. The sash is made from a bat garland that Jenny gave me. This old victorian album was just a couple of dollars because it's falling apart. It contained a few pictures inside and the gorgeous pages will be perfect to take out of the book and use in a project. The chenille comforter in the background also came from the sale. It's in perfect condition and just screams cozy:)
I can't wait to use these fabulous cases for my supplies when I go to Silver Bella in a few weeks.This old printers tray is in great shape as well. Can't wait to play around with it! Maybe I'll do something like this. Oooh...more fun stuff to look for at estate sales!
I couldn't believe it when I found this neat black glass glittered Wendy Addison bat chandlier at the thrift store last week. It was even new in its box. I love it!Did you know that there is going to be a big Bloglandia Halloween party!? See all the details here. See you there!

Have a great weekend!
