Believe it or not, Fall is fast approaching. WOO HOO!!!  My favorite time of the year with its beautiful colors and cooler temps.

Here are some pics of what I have been working on: 

All the bags are made of antique feedsack material.  They are approximately 8 1/2 inches high to the top of the rusty wire hanger and about 5 inches wide.  The pumpkin sack is painted and aged with an embroidered face and stick for a nose.  The last two bags have witch labels that have been applied using my own special process giving them that vintage look.  The mice are made of dk. grey wool felt wearing painted and aged witch hats made of muslin.  The bags are filled with sheet moss, preserved sweet annie and spagnum moss.

These bags would be a great Halloween accent hanging from a peg rack or maybe a knob on that antique cupboard.  You can find them in my etsy store or if you prefer you can email me at grams1garden@yahoo.com to purchase.  Cost of the bags is $22.00 plus air fare.  You can find the link to my etsy on my right sidebar.

Thanks bunches for stopping by!!  HAPPY HAUNTING!!!

Hi Carol,

Just wanted to tell you how much I love my little Fall/Halloween Witch Bag. Your work is so beautiful and detailed.

I can't wait for fall, so I have it displayed already. (o: It reminds me of the beautiful season to come.

You are a very gifted artist.

Hugs ♥

Wow ... Love All the mousers, they are such a cute prim addition. Certainly catches one's attention.
Yup, am ready for fall too. It will be 105 here in the Mojave Desert of CA. It should continue like this for the next week. I just hope and pray our AC does not let us down, especially for Kody's sake, our Alaskan Malamute. Yes, he is a house dog during the summer months, day and night. We vacuum a lot. But he's worth it.

Love your Blog Carol ... I'll be back and Thanks so much for sharing.

Peace be with you,
