Falloween Swap with Jenny

Jenny and I love{an understatement} to swap with one another, as I am sure most of you know by now!! I couldn't wait to do another fall swap with her. She is awesome!!
Above is some Halloween stuff I made. Jenny requested the bucket after seeing the one I made for Emilie last year. The silver acorn plate came from Bath & Body Works, by way of Goodwill. I got a set last year and was so excited to find one at GW. The cute Trick or Treat plate came from GW also. I got a set of seven back in the summer.


Jenny also wanted a cloche and I was happy to oblige.

A close-up of the BOO letters. I just mod podged the paper to the letters and painted the sides, sanded and inked, then glittered them.


A little detail of yummy ribbon and trim...



Had to make a halloween towel. There are black pom poms at the bottom.


Onto the Fall stuff...Found the acorn cookie jar from GW. Unfortunately it didn't survive the trip. Even being wrapped very well. I had included a heavy brass owl and the little booger broke the jar. Boo...

I made the FALL blocks and the tassel.



Some acorn goodness from Hobby Lobby. Those west coast girls don't have one. Isn't that sad??


Close-up on the blocks. I cut the letters out with my cricut and made them patchwork style.


Yummy pumpkin tassel goodness...


I found this towel, brand new, at a yard sale over the summer. Jenny likes her G's you know!!



This jar holding pumpkin pods has a G engraved on it, but I couldn't get a good photo of it. Surprised??


This is all the loot Jenny sent to me. I was going to take my own photo but the batteries in my camera died. You can go to Jenny's and see great photos. I love it all!! One of my favorite things is Mr. Bones. I have wanted him for a year and I finally got him!! That framed squirrel silhouette...be still my heart!! In LOVE, I tell ya!! October 31 sign...Awesome!! Oh my word-she had a stamp made for me with a squirrel and my mailing address. A super cute Boo cottage and pumpkins that she made. Lots of fun, fun goodies in my box!!

Thank you for being such a fun swap partner, Jenny!! That's what my kids call her. One day she called and Lilly answered. She handed me the phone and said, "Its your swap partner, Miss Jenny." Oh, they are so funny!!

We don't have a Hobby Lobby here in the Northeast either. I would love one here.

I love all the goodies you found and sent for the swap. They are amazing. The bucket, pumpkin tassel and fall sign are just beautiful. So talented. I am sure she is in love with her goodies.

Thanks,
