Halloween Towels at Macy's


Set of three kitchen towels for the Martha Stewart line at Macy's. The towels are adorable and no longer available online at Macy's. My local store had already moved the Halloween inventory to the clearance table last week. The graphics are beautiful.

Happy Halloween

Pumpkin Patch


Gourds
Originally uploaded by dragonflydesignstudio

We have been so busy this season the annual trip to the pumpkin patch is still on the to do list. Gourds in the photo above are from last years road trip. The weather doesn't look promising but we hope to take in the road side farm stands on the way to the pumpkin patch on Sunday. Fresh apple cider, bins full of gourds, and boxes of apples make me happy!

Halloween Bazaar


Catrina-Best Costume of the Day!
Originally uploaded by dragonflydesignstudio

The gal in this photo was my favorite costume of the day. My friend the mask maker had the booth next to me so we got to visit. My niece who is about to finish her last treatment for breast cancer came to help watch my booth. It was wonderful to see her. The Voodoo Doughnut truck parked out front and a handmade chocolate booth was close by. It was a dangerous weekend! It was wonderful to meet customers from the web site! Thank you for stopping by!
