    Fall CraftsThis Year and Pasts 

    Fall Crafts Made this year. Large Pumpkins. Mine is the top.

    My daughter did the other one with Makeup. I sprayed them with a sealer for outdoors and since I am Doing Christmas (Winter now); I moved them outside.

    My 2 little-decorated pumpkins are actually gourds which were so inexpensive, though Green looked enough like little pumpkins I used them. Does anyone see through this? Maybe more bumpy? I love them. I sealed them also since I can usually keep them 2 seasons. Maybe it will not work as good with Ghords? I got the idea off Pinterest in painting them. (Always Pinterest for ideas if you read my past posts.)

    I also painted and glittered up acorns my daughter found for me and made an owl out of small stones I found somewhere and a cracked walnut 1/2.  This walnut piece actually looked so much like an owl face I had to do it. I also used leaves for the wings and black jewelry makings necklace cord leftover strips.

    Glue paint and glitter were used on all I made. Makeup on my daughter’s pumpkin. (She is a good artist.)



    These are stamps I made out of wooden spools I already have. I painted the spools with a base coat of white and then twice with blue-grey vintage looking paint I mixed up. Dried fast each time with a blow drier since I want to get it done since I am a chloric personality. LOL. I went through my grandmothers and her mother’s buttons I inherited and picked some out I thought would go on the ends and I would be able to use as stamps or seals. I used a glue gun to adhere them to the ends of the spools. I did both ends. I had the plastic pink round button not adhere to one of the bigger spools (These still had the thread on them so I did not paint them. I can still use the thread anyway and I wanted to use my bigger buttons I have not done anything for so long with.) fall off so I used my heavy duty E6000 glue. I have not had a chance to use them yet. (Holidays though I might use them on Christmas paper stuff.) I have already made cards last January for this year. I will try to get photos on here of them. I used old paint colored chip cards for them. (Pinterest again. I admit I am wondering where the site has been in my life before I discovered it was only by invite.



    Here are some things I made with my kids or made myself over the years I had out this Autumn: (Actually my kids did most of these after I looked them over. Thanks for staying until the end.

      Super cool! I never thought of making stamps out of old buttons! Awesome idea! Looks like my afternoon plans are going to be a bit tweaked. I have my grandma’s old button tin, and there are ones in there that would make great stamps!

        That would be great if you were able to get some done. I have not tried them out yet, but they are pretty if you like to have lovely things out in your house. Mine have been out like this since I made them. Thank you for commenting. Have a nice weekend.

    Odd Ball Photos? 

    I thought I would try my hand at: http://ceenphotography.com/cees-odd-ball-photo-challenge/. I wanted to do one of her other challenges, but have no photos that really work great for them this week. ( Have had a lot of camera woes for a time, so getting new photos was not an option.) Anyway, I have quite a few photos that fit an odd ball theme.

    So I present to you a couple of these I found in my photo library:

    The first one is an item I have for sale in my Etsy Shop: 

    Plant pressed in stone vintage  collectible with rawhide hanger.

    Plant pressed in stone vintage collectible with rawhide hanger.

    I think it is a beautiful and unique item. I for one have never seen anything like it. Made in the 70’s with tag. It was made in the town I live in. It is really oddball from any side you look at it. (Except to use it for a shop listing.) Anyone that spots it outside of the retail theme, might think it is rather “different.”

    If that is not “odd” enough for you. I give you: 

    Really,  i only took it because of the odd egg in the bunch.

    Bought these as brown eggs. There was a couple light-brown eggs in the mix, but the one in the middle left row was super white.

    How that white egg slipped into the brown container is a mystery we may never know.

    For anyone that has the courage to check out my Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DappledMoonEmporium?ref=hdr_shop_menu

    And I do not ship eggs, neither brown or white. You must find them elsewhere.
