Thanks everyone for the kind words - I loved making that bunting. Irid3sc3nt pinned she loved round bunting which I thought looked pretty amazing so gave it a go. And I loved stalking and researching all the vintage postcards - incredible.

Now it's my turn to post some vintage Halloween amazingness - sorry too for the pic quality - it's just on sunset here.

Irid3sc3nt brought together stuff from my questionnaire and pins to make this beautiful cloche. I have always wanted one. It combines vintage (lace, pearls, black bows, doily) skeletons, bats, vintage key and sweet blackbird and I just love it to bits. Irid3sc3nt left it up to my interpretation whether Mr Skeleton was releasing or trying to catch the bat - Have a look!!







There were also some really great Halloween-y extra's as Australia hasn't really got a strong tradition with Halloween and I love all the vintage imagery, sweets and bits & bobs.



Thank you so much irid3sc3nt for swapping with me and choosing to ship internationally. And I hope arriving after Halloween wasn't too frustrating!! I have Jack (after Nightmare before Christmas) sitting out on display - he's good enough to be out all year round  Cheesy

Thanks to you too kittykill for another amazing vintage swap - another home run!!  Grin

Not frustrating at all!  I just felt concerned about our packages since they were taking a long time to arrive.  Maybe they rode the boat.
