Zipper Pins On Etsy

I've FINALLY listed my zipper pins in my Etsy shop! I made them about 16 months ago,(seems like 6 months, but time flies,lol). I've had them displayed in a pretty vintage jar, and they'd probably still be there if Lara,"MY VERY FIRST Etsy CUSTOMER", hadn't inquired about them after seeing this picture.

P.S. Lara If you read this, thank you for the incentive.

While sorting pictures I came across these. They were taken this summer at the California State Fair.
It was such a fun exhibit!

Birthday Witch

I have to tell you the story of the witches head.
A couple months back I found a resin witch head in a box at a garage sale. It had a few strands of rope hair still attached and was looking pretty scary. My sister and I have nicknames for each other, she is Wicked Witch Of The East, and I am Wicked Witch Of The West. Naturally I bought the "scary head", thinking that I would fix it up and send it to my sister as a Halloween gift. While filling a box for her one day I decided just to throw the "scary head" in unfinished, as a joke.


Today I received this witch in the mail, as a birthday gift from Wicked Witch Of The East!!! I just have to share pictures! The body is a sand-filled orange juice bottle, and the clothes, hat & shoes are all MADE FROM SCRATCH from things she had around her house! The tiny smiling spider & ruby slippers are 'TOO MUCH'!!
What a lucky sister I am!!!
