Hello My Friends!
Somehow I know fall is coming even though today's feel like or heat index is between 104-108 degrees! I can't say that I wasn't a bit jealous when my nephew in Washington, DC sent a screenshot of the 60 degree weather from his phone! Oh well it's coming...
I'm in the mood! I even started having thoughts of Christmas! Halloween seems to kick off the holiday season for me and there is nothing I love more than to start doing some major crafting during these upcoming months. I've designed a few things for Halloween and started stringing some new Fall bracelets. There's not a lot of those...But, email me and I'll see if I have enough goodies to string more. Anyway, on with the Fall Projects...
Halloween Themed Victorian Peepshow
"Paper peepshows had their heyday in the mid 19th century, at a time when optical devices were all the rage. The trend began in Austria and Germany, and quickly spread to France and England. Often produced cheaply, they would be sold as souvenirs at popular travel destinations or as substitutes to experiencing the real thing. For the viewer today, they are playful and interactive time-travelling devices which highlight the kinds of attractions that thrilled people at the time." -Victoria and Albert Museum Online
You simply open the box, accordion it out and look through the peep hole on the front of the box and view the spooky scene...A great Halloween treat for a friend or excellent compact Halloween decoration.
Out for a Midnight Ride
An awesome Halloween project and great decoration, this cat carries an old witch out for a ride on his cart for a spooky midnight stroll.
