Thankful for Spooky Gifts

I just wanted to take the time today to showcase some amazing artists that I had the opportunity to swap art with recently. The first group was the tombstone swap held by the wonderful Kristin of Retro Cafe Art. The second was the Halloween matchbox hosted by Joanne of Vintage Dragonfly and was created by the amazing artist Mercedes. Check out Retro Cafe Art and Vintage Dragonfly if you to would like to participate in a future art swaps. I do so enjoy them. I am also including a scary old-new photo of our house to go with the theme.

So directly below are 4 decorated tombstones. Starting in the upper right: Retta Skiff, then Jennifer of Just Jingle, the pretty witch was Susan Guzy and the darling witch bird was from Kristin. It's amazing to see what variety of style we create using the same Retro Cafe Art Base !

Next, is the simply gorgeous Halloween Matchbox by Mercedes Scott at All Things Pretty. You must drop by her blog, you will be wowed. My pictures do not do it justice for this luscious piece. The colors, textures and dimensions were breath taking. My favorite part was the silver skeleton head hidden in the bouquet! There were tons of awesome supplies that were Halloween themed and wrapped. She really went all out and made Halloween Decorations, and a pretty black rose pin too. It was wonderful to receive this since all my Halloween decorations are still in storage! Hopefully we will be moving out of the cottage this month and into our new home. I can't wait.

Hope you will receive wonderful surprises this week.
Artfully yours, Gerri
