Halloween Swaps!! Tinsel Trading Company!! Freebies!!

Hello Friends!

Hope you are having a lovely Fall!

I returned from my New England leaf peeping
to find these lovelies created by my swap partners waiting for me!
This bootiful spoolie doll and tag were created by Kimberly of artJOYstuff:

Look at this beautiful tag:
 

I LOVE them, thank you so much, Kimberly!

I received this lovely matchbox stuffed with goodies
from JoAnne of Vintage Dragonfly.
This is a picture of the top only:




 
I love this embellished skeleton hand!!

 
Thanks so much JoAnne, I love it all!!

My annual trip to Tinsel Trading Company
yielded a big disappointment this year. 
I knew they had relocated to a different part of the city,
and I was looking forward to visiting them and see what's new.
Well, I almost walked right past them,
they have totally downsized :O





 
A shadow of their former self... whoa... that's pretty spooky, no?  ;)
Now, that is not to say that I didn't find anything to buy there, LOL!
 
But click on the following picture to go back to my post
from my 2012 trip to see how fabulous it used to be :(
 
 
OK.
Enough whining.
 
So....
The last week before Halloween, are you ready??
Here's a few more images for use in your own
handmade Halloween:

Oh, Lorraine, I wish you could see the big smile on my face with this post! I love the special Halloweenies you received from your swap partners -- you really have the best! And your trip sounds great, even if Tinsel Trading Company wasn't what it used to be. It's still very charming!

Thanks, too, for the wonderful images. I love each and every one of them!

Hi Lorraine,
So happy you like your matchbox and goodies. Your spoolie and tag from Kimberly are wonderful.
I'll be visiting Tinsel Trading at Thanksgiving time. I kind of thought the new place may be smaller. Certain I'll be able to find something too...lol.
Happy Halloween!
xoxo
JoAnne

Lots of fun, Lorraine! I would have fallen for the Tinsel Trading Co too!!!!! Where is this located (we are on the East Coast too)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and happy PS!

Hi Lorraine, I once did a Halloween swap and it was fun. Your swap looks great and the spoolie doll and tag are so well done.

So many stores are less then they were. How sad that our economy is in such turmoil. The skeleton hand is very clever.

I enjoyed my visit to your blog.
xo, Jeanne
