Look at these sweet tags sent to my by Paula Clare...aren't they the cutest? Paula hosted a three for three Vintage Halloween image tag swap. I took photos of the three tags I made but I guess I lost one between edit and save because I can't find it on my computer anywhere! Maybe a Halloween ghoulie ran off with it....boo!

Last month Paula Clare of Paula's Palace of Altered Art had a blogoversary drawing and I won! I'd come to know Paula's art through our shared love of all things Red Lead. She has a style that's warm, wonderful and all heart. Just look at the goodies in this giveaway...believe me, I felt like it was Christmas at my house! There are gorgeous papers, stickers, rub-ons and rubber stamps all from the Cosmo Cricket line...one of my favorites! Look at the adorabele cigar box purse...it's filled with lovely fabrics. The wimsey jar is a vintage blue Ball jar filled with trinkets and there's a bag filled with vintage bits and pieces! What a sweet, generous giveaway. Happy Blogoversary Paula and thank you again!

This is an atc I made today for a friend at work...she just had a birthday and loves Halloween. Don't you love these costumes? Do you think these three clowns went into a studio and posed for this photograph or were they on their way to Halloween party? Boo!

The Artists' Flea Market
Saturday, November 7, 2009
9am to 4pm
I found a few of these old bridge tally cards while I was thrifting the other day. I love these! I can just imagine the bridge party where these were used...the names in the four cards are Dorothy, Elizabeth, Loretta and Lois. Did they get together weekly? All live in the same neighborhood? What did they talk about? Do you think the four of them are still playing bridge? I wonder....

I decided to try a new look on my blog...I've fallen for the wonderful look of Itkupilli's digital art. You should check out her sites...she offers so many of her gorgeous images, blog backgrounds and banners free. Her sites are just a feast for the eyes...there's so much magic and color. I took a little artistic license with the blog banner. It originally had a sweet pup on it but I had to replace him (sorry pup!) with this little party loving sheep. I hope she doesn't mind. Anyway, when you have some time grab a cup of coffee and take a look into Itkupilli's magical world. I know you'll love what you see. Her Etsy shop is also full of gorgeous collage sheets and digital design kits...they're amazing! Go take a look and enjoy yourself!
