Year Round Halloween

Somehow I missed blogging all through October, which is my favorite month because I can be shamelessly festive in spooky decor without people asking why. Since I missed October, I'm just going to post one picture of the display my vending partner and I had for Halloween. I was so stoked to know I had met another "Hallow-queen" to work with :) We've only met in person once to put our space together and yet somehow our items mesh together soooo well. Decorating via text? Yep, it works. We're definitely kindred shoppers! 
Not pictured - spider webs / skeletons draped over everything. Also, best item featured is that "Don't Drown Yourself in Funeral Expenses" book. More evidence that vintage books are AMAZING.

I haven't been crafting as much as I want, but I have been on the hunt for the shop! Christmas prepping flea market finds from last week made for a great haul picture! I have to say it's not as much fun to shop for as Halloween, but I'm really digging vintage Crackerbox ornaments - handmade with about a hundred pins/sequence to create orb like kitsch treasures. 

Yep, that's Abby Cadabby - couldn't resist that. 
The most recent little collection of brass tones I grouped together in the shop, discretely featuring my bug jewelry. Really enjoying grouping like colors in the space lately. :)

I don't have much to show for the lack of posts. I have been super busy planning trips, working and studying. I decided to slowly go back to school (to start a graduate program in engineering) while working full time still and it's been quite the time suck. I did manage to create a separate etsy shop for my vintage finds. I now have two etsy shops - one for handmade and one vintage (both featured in the sidebar of the blog). It's been slow start because etsy is so over saturated these days, but it's nice to rotate my back stock for the space and post a few things on etsy too. 

Going to finish this post with Ludwig and the $5 landscape that will eventually feature a ridiculous word/font in homage to Wayne White's artwork. Until then, it's this little cat's favorite backdrop.
