31  Re: Vintage Halloween Swap 2014 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by irid3sc3nt on: November 13, 2014 08:28:00 AM
Whew, international packages have finally arrived!

Here are the vintage-y items I received from whenindoubtsew.  My apologies for the lighting.  It has been snowing here for days, so if you have better pictures please share them.

Also, there was chocolate somewhere in here... Roll Eyes

Here is my new JOL!  I think of the black and white ribbon as legs--they're posable!  He has the goofiest face... I love it.  Great color choice of fabric.  He has little black pipecleaner vines and a black ribbon loop so he can be hung.  Hanging or sitting, he looks good either way. He was wrapped in candy corn fabric... yus, the perfect way to wrap (wish I had thought of that).

Here is my new banner/bunting!  Wow, it's made out of a variety of fabrics including burlap.  Each image from my Pinterest is embroidered---wow, wow, wow.  And there are lovely Halloween poems on a second piece of fabric sewed at the top to the..um.. behind piece.  I'm a lover of these, mostly found on vintage postcards.  Contemporary Halloween isn't nearly (hardly) as eloquent.  Oh, you must know me well Wink

Closeup of the snowman/pumpkin/jol/witch... I know this is in my Pinterest somewhere.  Now I know what it's like to slog through all those Halloween boards.

Closeup of the hissing cat and tiny skull bat from a gallery poster

Closeup of the owl and the witch-cat from a vintage postcard

Closeup of the arched black cat with ghosts and Trick or Treat pumpkin.  Hmm.. I can't seem to find who originally created this.
Closeup of the jol with lantern image originally created by Rhode Montijo

Hanging.  Not actually where I would put it.

Again, I apologize for the ghastly photos.

Thank you, whenindoubtsew, for my wonderful creations and also thank you, kittykill, for hosting this amazing swap again.

Finally!  I now have pictures of the house hazelly sent me.

The button pumpkin is so cute.  Also, the cobweb and cat are stamps--oh, man, I love rubber stamps.  Where did you find them, hazelly?

Thank you!

Last two houses:

Here is my house from goatgoddess.  She used a sign from my Pinterest that I hope to one day craft.  Oh, lol, I just noticed the tendrils at the bottom!  They look like creeping tentacles.

Here is my house from P_E_S_T.  I has a moon that you can see when there is light in the background.  The house is based on a poem she created.

Thank you ladies!

Here are two of the lovely houses I received.

Here is the house blupaisan sent.  It's made out of leather (pleather?) in my favorite Halloween colors: dark orange and black.  I'm particularly fond of how the spider is guarding the house.

Some of the windows had fallen off in transit, so I reglued them back on.

Here is the house rockingbearranch sent.  It is a Victorian Halloween house.  See the little tree?  It came with soft, soft, soft angora fur.  My kitty was interested in it, but I grabbed it before she could start grooming it.

Thank you ladies!!

Here are the houses I have so far:

This one was made by aluraceleste.  The mixed-media on it is fab.

This one was made by cmarion3.  It practically makes its own neighborhood.

This one was made by cackle.  Check out all the tiny details.

This one was made by SonjaBoo.  I have the same paper that was used for the doors and windows.  Check out the witch on back.

Thank you, ladies!  They are up on my mantle.

I received both of my OTTs!

From cadet120433:

It's a sweet little party skeleton!  He's holding a toad and his hat is embroidered.  My son really liked him.

From mandymo13:

It's a collage!  It's made out of four separate tiny canvases that have been stuck together.  There's a toad wearing a witch hat, a skull and crossbones, a tombstone and bat, and Trick or Treat.

Thank you both for my OTTs!  I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.
