Pictures as promised.

We'll start with a few Etsy treasures of which I'm the proud and content owner. The little owl is made by Mani-mina, and he's one of the things I couldn't resist buying for myself when I first discovered the site. I haven't regretted it for a moment! I love seeing him perched on our cabinet. She has a super busy shop, and it's no wonder - she makes really adorable clothes for kids.

This candle-holder is by Nathan William Murrel of Hijacked Ceramics. I just love the colors and texture on all of his work and was so excited to get this one for Christmas! Now that we've moved, I'm happy that it has a more prominent spot in our living room.

My Grandmom is a really great sewer (seamstress?) and has always made things for everyone in our family. I have a box of clothes that she made for me when I was little, which I hope to use someday for my own kids. These are some fun Halloween decorations she made for us. My chair looks like it fell on the Wicked Witch! Who wouldn't enjoy that?!

And, last but not least, a find from the Cedarburg Wine and Harvest Festival a few years ago. Before I actually had a tent at the fest, my parents came up one year to check it out. My mom found a really scary ghoul for their front tree, and I walked away with this little table witch. The sad thing is that I have no idea who made her - the tags just don't have anywhere to look. I love her handpainted little face and layered dress though. She's a pretty happy witch.
