I'm Cookin' Up Something Good and Scary (well sort of scary)

If purple skeletons scare you well then my cottage creation is scary. This the first of a few that I am going to make this season. Each will be unique in their own way. This is a late birthday present for a Halloween Loving friend of mine. Stay tuned for even more Halloween cottages for friends and My Etsy Shop!

I really have been quite busy. I rescued this mirror from my mother-in-law's house. Immediately I saw the Halloweenesque qualities that this creepy mirror posses ed. I painted in black cat black and glittered it in black glitter from top to bottom. I wish you could see the lovely glitter and sparkle but my camera just didn't do it justice!

Finally, just a VERY SMALL sneak peak at a Halloween Sign Swap I started over at Cottage Style Ning. I'm having a lot of fun with this one! Will be completed when I get my package of goodies from Caramelos This is for Jean Knee, my very hilarious swap partner!

I have no idea what my sneaky peek is but it looks very intriguing.

Of course you know about my love of skeletons so that purple guy is too cute.

and yes, I may have a skeleton something for you..........
