A Halloween Fairy in a Jar.

I used a jar from ACMoore, some moss, a stump, apothecary jars, a small pumpkin from Hobby Lobby. The paper cut-out is from Altered Artifacts by Inka. Love all her altered vintage cut-outs. Visit her blog too.......HERE. She even has free tutorials and free downloads. Talk about AWESOME!!!! Thanks Inka!!!

Of course I always add my number "9"

The tag reads Fairy Friends

I made two of these.

Just a close up.

The inside of the fairy jar. The bat tree branch is from Prima.

Wanted to share my garden harvest of gourds......gotta love it! This is the HUGE wheelbarrow.
Some of the gourds were very big!!! Heavy too!
Dusty and I sat them all creating our fall scene.

Ahhhhhhhhh it's heavy!!!!!
He had so much fun!!! A great decorator!!! Go Dusty!!

He even laid out the pumpkins!!! Look how strong he is!! WTG Dusty!!

A side view of the gourds, mums, and the pumpkins in the fall scene.

 Same here IPhone......gotta love it!! It started raining when we went to the Merchant's Mill Pond to take pics. Love this one!

Oh Dawn - it's much better in a larger format like this - how marvelously clever! Hope you had a great time with Catherine... wish I could have joined you but look forward to see everyone's creations at our next meeting. Been enjoying a laid back day in Kitty Hawk scrapping with friends.

Hello Dawn! What a nice post. SO much to see~ LOVE the bales of hay and gourds. We live in a suburban area with small yards, but one time I managed to talk my hubby into going to the local feed store to buy a bale of hay for decoration. It made such a mess in the car and on the porch, so he said never again! lol. My goodness, your covered jar is awesomeblossom! I think I may make one of those with a Christmas theme. CONGRATS on the upsoming grandbaby...how exciting. Dusty is such a QTPie. My 'baby' will be 20 in another month but she still helps me decorate and even crafts a bit with me.
Happy Halloween,
Shawn
