A ghostly giveaway - part 2

It's not often that I do a happy dance while reading someone's blog, but yesterday evening I did. You may remember that I recently took part in the fabulous Mrs B's 31 Days of Halloween, allowing folk the chance to win this beaded ghostie.

There was a great response to the giveaway, and the winner was announced as the wonderful TMCPhoto. She sent me a link yesterday to a very lovely blog post, in which she was very complimentary about my work. How sweet!

You should check out her shop, in which she sells fine art photography of natural phenomena, landscapes, cityscapes and nature. In her words, "My photos are a variety of landscapes, still life and portraiture. My images are taken with a regard to the relationship I have to my subjects, they are full of energy, playful or thoughtful expressions of my view of the world." You can follow her on her blog, on Twitter and also on Facebook.

A bat and a ghostie

This cute little fella arrived at my door on Saturday morning:

Half An Acre bat

He now resides in my living room with the other spooky guys:


He was made by by Half an Acre, purveyor of hand-painted wooden loveliness, and creator of the brilliant Widget the Sock Bunny concept (read about the ideas behind Widget here - very clever.).

In other news, my Small Ghostie (click the image below to go to the listing) has been featured in a couple of places. He was on Cuteable on Friday in their Flickr Friday feature, and today he's in the Autumn issue of UK Handmade magazine (check him out on page 83 in the Trick or Treat feature).

Cutie Pie Pumpkin

I'd been admiring this little cutie for a couple of months, and finally bought her a couple of days ago. She popped through my letterbox this morning, and now resides in my living room.


She was created by a fellow Folksy seller, SeeTheWoods, who makes all manner of gorgeous things. Her plumpkins, pumpkins made from a variety of yummy patterned fabrics, are particularly lovely.

Cutie Pie has now been added to the many Halloween decorations that live in my house. Here are just some of those:
