I think she got lost along the way!!!
It is still blisteringly hot here ..... I honestly think it's time summer moved south and let Fall take up her rightful place:-)
To try and hurry her along, I've made a start on some Fall crafts. I mentioned in my last post that I was working on a Fall version of the spool dolls/mice ..... well here they are in all their pumpkiny goodness. (Oops, I see that I need to rewrap one of the trims!!!)

My favorite part of them - the little, green tendril (I think that's what it's called). That really turned them into pumpkins for me.

Next, I saw some cute Fall tassels on my last browse aroung Michaels. To me though, there were 2 issues with them - firstly, they were very bulky and not too well made and secondly, the price tag was a little steep.... $7-99 each. I was sure I could make something similar and more to my liking, and here's the result...

I picked up the scarecrow figurines at Walgreens - 2 for $1-00. The rest is stuff I had in my stash leftover from previous projects - wooden candle holders, brown paint, a teeny, tiny bit of trim and lots of different colored and textured ribbon. I like them a lot, and think that they'll look really cute hanging off of some door knobs or dresser drawer knobs during this Fall season.

Thanks for stopping by - I really appreciate it:-)
Until next time - enjoy the lovely Fall weather. That is if she has arrived in your neck of the woods!!!

  2. Those are the cutest little tassels. And I love your pumpkin spools. I am so happy that you received the package, and that you liked it. It sure did get to you quickly, from when I mailed it. I hope you are Okay and that the traumatic stuff is getting better. I glad I could lift your spirits for sure. So glad to have been your partner, and that you are in my fall swap.

  3. Hi there Kerry, Oh my my goodness! I received a beautiful package in the mail today, with the cutest mice ornaments, the most wonderful fall tassels, and the most darling spool mice. I can't believe the amount of work that went into this box, and I am the lucky recipient. You are one talented lady. Did you come up with all those spool dolls yourself? That is such a darling idea, but those little mice are to die for. And I can't believe you sent me some of your beautiful tassels. Thankyou thankyou. I will be hanging those on my mantel, and will post pictures on my blog soon. I am so glad to get to know you. I just feel so spoiled with this YOE exchange. Your a jewel!

  4. I love the pumpkin spools, so cute! You are so creative!
