Vintage Halloween BOO & Black Cat Banner

 You can click on the pictures to see larger images.
 I used vintage dictionary paper for a little something special.
 I machine stitched crepe paper streamers before and after each banner.
 The letters and black cats are die cut and glued on.
 This banner dances charmingly in the slightest breeze.

Birdie Garland

 Here's another set of pictures of a sweet little bird garland.
 I die cut each bird from vintage dictionary paper and a variety of pink patterned paper.
 Then I layered the two papers, and sewed them together with silver and white thread.
 As I final touch, I added dew drop eyes to each bird for a bit of sparkle.
 This garland is so light, and catches the air so easily.
 Even inside, the air conditioning moves it around.
 I have one hanging in the doorway of my studio. I can see it from the kitchen, and it's nice.
 It's always interesting to me how such insignificant things can come together to make something pretty.
 Don't you think so?
