I decided to share my mantle. It began as a host for my black cat collection, but has grown to have a "Halloween" theme. My mantle has only hosted Christmas before, so this is a first, and I really like it! The best part is that many of the items on it are from people I know and love!
Notice my amazing tussie mussie! It's from my good friend Jules over at Whimsical Notions!
The tiny cat with the orange hat is a vintage find as well as the black cat below it that holds envelopes, paper, etc. I would love to find more like these. Who knows, maybe my collection will be even larger next year.
That wonderful tin with the witch is from Sherry at Esprit d*Art for our friend Marilyn from Unshelved Words seasonal tin swap. I got it in the mail the other day, and I love it! Thank you so much Sherry!
The cat hanging on the Eiffel tower was purchased by the talented Betzie Smith. As soon as I saw it on her amazing blog, I had to have it!
This wonderful beauty is from a new friend, Gloria over at Les Arts By Gloria. We did a Wicked Witch Switch swap over at Bella Enchanted. Gloria sent me the most wonderful box of goodies (post coming soon) including this handmade All Hallow's Eve, with my favorite, a black cat!
And some of you wondered why I love to do swaps so much. As you can see by my mantle, it is a wonderful reason to do swaps and learn about all of the amazing artists in this community.
I hope that you have enjoyed my mantle and I will be posting pics of the rest of my Halloween decor soon!
Have a wickedly wonderful day!
