Thanksgiving Place Cards and Match Box Covers

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away. I love getting together with family for this special occasion.
I created a banner out of my collection of vintage and antique postcards. I made a coordinating place card and small match box cover that is included here for you to download. You can edit the place cards to personalize them with a name or anything you want. They are 3.5 wide by 4 inches tall. Fold them in half. If you are scoring them, score at 2 inches. I added touches of ultra fine gold glitter and it just adds that special touch. The match box covers fit the small match boxes that you can purchase in the grocery store. Cut the images and glue to the top and bottom of the match box. I added a touch of glitter to these as well. They look great sitting next to a spice candle. They also make a great hostess gift. I hope you enjoy them!

Sharing Some Halloween Photos

I love decorating for Halloween. This year the theme was "The Crossbones Inn". I had a lot of fun putting everything together. I created a banner of course! I set up my tree filled with antique, vintage and modern decorations and of course treat boxes filled with goodies for the guests. I displayed many of my crows and created a banner of crows to go up the staircase. Each year I buy a couple of things to add and this year I found a great table cloth at Target and a few little gravestones. My friend Jamie and I have bought each other gifts over the years or shopped together so we have many of the same things. I have included a few pictures from her house this year. Well Halloween is over and I need to pack this all up waiting for the fun next year.
