I wanted to share some of the goodies I sent to Catie. We were swap partners in the BLACK CAT & PUMPKIN SWAP hosted by Deb over at HOP HOP JINGLE BOO.

First up, this collage. It is on an 8x10 canvas. I really like the way it turned out. I will have to make one for myself!

Then I threw in this trio of pumpkins. They are all very different, but each unique its own little way and I love them all and couldn’t choose just one, so I sent them all to Catie. I DON'T KNOW WHY THESE PICS ARE ACTING THIS WAY.....hopefully I CAN FIGURE OUT WHY AND EDIT THIS POST.

I also sent along this pumpkin spice sachet (smells divine!!) and the cutest, tiniest little pumpkin soap from AVON.

OK, I know the rest of the stuff I will list here is not black cat or pumpkin, but I really wanted to send these things to Catie. Above is a an adorable vintage Golden Book entitled C……well, C is for Catie Ann….you get where I’m going here, right?

Here are a couple of vintage button cards, BUT ALSO a couple of vintage-inspired buttons that I think are just lovely. I thought Catie would like them.

There were a few other miscellaneous items in the box not listed here, and I of course had to throw something in for Caties sweet cat, Callie. Hope she enjoys…..
