okay the second package on the same day was my giveaway win from Linda over at parkers paradise..I won the giveaway along with some others that she gave too..I love those little ears of corn..and the other pantry cakes..I must make some of these..
I put 2 corns here...on my kitchen window seal..

I made these for a fellow blogging friend Shirley of wolf spirits..she is in the process of making a memorial quilt for her friend Danny that passed away and she found some fabric and I know she and Danny loved I machine embroidered this wolf face and pow emblem in hopes she can use them on the quilt she is making..:)

I forgot that I had purchased this little black tree for my fall/halloween I pulled it out and decorated it with little itty bitty ornaments that I got at michaels years ago..I put a huge spider on it and topped it with a wicker witch on the top..I got her from Factory direct .com..I have another and was going to use them in my fall/halloween craft making and came acrossed it and thought she would be puurrffeecct..;) this sits in my bathroom window...Hubby noticed it the other day and thought I had gone nuts putting in a a christmas tree..but he didn't have the lights on and didn't notice that it was a halloween tree till he noticed that big ole spider in it.:)

  5. Isn't it amazing that no matter how much stuff we get, we always find the perfect place for it? Love all your gifts and how you display them!
    Glad you like the molds--wish I could've sent out the corn one, as well, but they are so heavy--cost more to ship than to buy! I have 2 different sizes and saw another different one at the festival Saturday. And so easy to do.....Just brown sugar, cinnamon and water. Press-pop-bake....
    Enjoy your week.

  6. Gina, everything looks so cozy... can I come put my feet up with your kitties? I think that's what I'm needing right about now!

  7. Double WOW Gina! Do you ever slow down!!! :D

  11. Gina, I just loved the wolf eyes and POW/MIA patchthat you embroidered for my quilt. I have been thinking that I will use the wolf eyes as part of my quilt label. I can embroider the information about the quilt below the eyes. I'm going to use the POW/MIA patch as part of a quilt block using the fabric that I found for it. I love your Halloween decorating. Rich would die if I put up a Halloween tree....he thinks I'm nuts because I have 3 Christmas trees.
