This Halloween Matchbox Swap
was hosted by


 I was paired up with 
Donna from 



Well my swap goodies
 from Donna
were amazing !
She is truly a very
talented artist.


She packed a cute black 
box
with silver spider webs
on it full of goodies. 



Her decorated matchbox
above was absolutely
beautiful and neatly done 
and very detailed.


And this adorable
Dominoes tile book .......
well I've just never seen
one before and I 
adore this one.

Again.....her work is so 
intricate and detailed 
and perfectly 
put together!


Look how this opens
into a amazing little
accordion book 
filled with black crows.
I LOVE It !


Of course this burlap 
pumpkin above is 
right up my alley
along with the
 adorable rings ,
pillbox, tags and
 stamp !



And you can never have enough
wonderful trims .


Or crafting supplies.

Thank you Donna !

Happy Halloween !

Checking In With Mark & Marie

It's been quite a while
since we've checked in on
Mark & Marie Bethany
who had just bought
a house on 
 Birch Tree Lane.

Marie's been enjoying her roof
top deck as much as she can
all summer long and even
the warmer Fall days we've
been having.

She's been working
through most of
the summer
on a painting for
her husband Mark
and
 is just about done.

She takes her lunch with
 her & her little dog Mimi
and
enjoys the hours spent in
quiet solitude doing what
she loves most.

She loves being creative.

And while Marie is up on
the roof Mark is enjoying
his solitude too with his
feet up on the coffee table
and reading his daily paper.

I'm sure Mark's next plan will
be to take an afternoon nap
which is one of the things he
enjoys most !
