cloche party and tidbits!

Swappies Swappies everywhere!
(you should be able to click on any of the pictures to get to their blogsites!)
Cindy from thimbleprims is hosting this raggedy ann swap.. yes... I joined.

Wild at heart art is hosting this awesome monster in my closet swap.. uhhuh.. I joined..Bella Enchanted is hosting this secret witch swap... yeah, I was under a spell I think and found myself signing up for this one too!

And then.. theres this one! Natasha is hosting an All about me swap.. what a great idea! I have not signed up for this one yet.. but I do think I might!

OK! then there is this CLoche Party! hosted by A stroll thru life! I joined this too.. but its not a swap.. its so you can show off pics of your Cloches! I finally found a very lovely and expensive one a couple weeks ago, but I had been looking for months and hadnt found one.. so I didnt care how much it cost.. I had to have it!
I couldnt get a good picture of this for the life of me though!

Im getting ready to change it out for fall ! I'm dying to decorate for halloween of course.. but I really do have to wait a couple more weeks.. at least til after I get back from Ohio! My craft room is looking very halloweenie already!

And, speaking of halloween.. My friend Grace of little arty crafty crow gave me this sweet witchy award! Thank you so much Grace! I pass it on to everyone who is creating halloween goodies right now!

well, I think I'll end this here.. my son just came in with dinner..


(dont think about the calories.. Im not...!)

arent my little figgy and frannie pumpkin heads adorable!!
I'll be back tomorrow..
with mail pics..
plus, I'm going to doll and quilt shows tomorrow..
you never know what I might come home with!

Oh I love your cloche. You found a beauty. I love the big ones, there is so much you can put inside. Some of the little ones are cute, but very limited. I love your gorgeous vignette. Thanks so much for joining the party, it is such fun to see everyone's creations. Hugs, Marty

Girl, you are SUPER WOMAN! How you keep up with so many swaps, I'll NEVER know. I can't even keep this COMPUTER operating properly! Sigh. But can't WAIT to see all your Halloween swappy stuff. And Fannie & Figgy are looking ESPECIALLY cute today! (Ummmm ... did you say calzones? Sigh ... I had 2 figs and some cottage cheese plus a TON of water & coffee today. Those calzones sound goooooood!)

I had read all of your blog-post really fast, which isn't a good thing when your dyslexic... Anywho, one of the things I had to re-read was "calzones"...I read it to say "catzones" lol
