Happy Halloween

I didn’t have time to make a decoration for Halloween this year so instead a put together this old candle in a new arrangement, very much inspired by my sew make believe buddy Zoë in her post today about her Halloween decorations. I already had the charger plate from our wedding Portmeirion set and I bought the candle a few Halloweens ago. I simple added some black buttons around the base of the candle to make it look a bit more polished. Here are my decorations from last year:

Winter Cabin

It’s that time of year again when I can’t help but add to my holiday felt ornament kit collection. All the kits are by Alicia Paulson and I love each kit (although I have so far only completed 2 of the 5 kits I now have).

I love Alicia’s kits because they are beautifully designed, the materials are lovely and the instructions are very clear.

She also includes a lovely thank you postcard and business card, adding some more pretty to my inspiration board.

Ice Skating Afternoon
Walk in the Woods

I have already made the Ice Skating Afternoon kit and the Walk in the Woods kit and since I want to make them in order (one of my little OCDish quirks), I will be making the Snow Day kit next, although I might need some help from my sew make believe buddies with the tiny crochet scarf.

If you haven’t already, you must read Alicia’s Posie Gets Cozy blog too. She is quite a lady.
