Guess What I got in the Mail

I was so excited when the mail man brought a nice little box to my door. The darling Halloween bag from Bonnie over at Calamity Jane's Cottage came. I was blessed enough to win this last week. I have gotten so many compliments on it from friends dropping by to say hello. So I can't wait to use it in the next few weeks. There are so many details in this bag, and my little Sloan wanted to know if it was for her. I told her no way! Just kidding, I did let her know it was for me (but in kinder words) and she just went on and on about how she couldn't wait for me to use it.  Thank you so much Bonnie!
My friend Lori over at Morning Glories and Moonbeams has pumpkin fever and let me tell you, I have caught it! I went and bought two of my favorite magazines, some fake fall leaves and some Halloween ribbon. I can't wait to start decorating. I also love all the cute ideas for pumpkins that she has been posting about. 
Do you see the tacky gold frames behind my new bag? Those are now black, thanks to a great idea on the blog of Scooter Blu Whimsy, that Lori featured the other day. I have seen this idea before but for some reason never thought to do it to my own frames. I painted them all black and they look great. Thanks for all the great inspiration Lori!
Hope everyone is having a lovely day. Check back later today for my newest addition to my Etsy store. Happy early fall decorating!

P.S. The Miracles for Mallory Silent Auction is still going on. Drop in by and check it out!

Oh, and I would love to see the pics of your "made over" frames. I bet they look great! Good for you! Now you are inspiring me! Lori
