Etsy's Storque: Haunted Mansion

My old school bell is featured in an article on Etsy's Storque.

It's fun to see the other items that are featured. It reminds me of the silly "fun house" ride at our local amusement park. These things aren't really spooky on their own, but what about when you put them all together?

Antique Cast Iron Fixture from annslights.

Framed Owl print from Trixieknowsvintage.

Antique 1930's phone from LuLusVintageandSuppl's.

Okay, so maybe she's a tad bit spooky on her own! (from victoriantreasures).

Chic Studio

One of my wonderful customers sent me pictures of her home studio. I just had to share!

I love the way she has incorporated both the pretty, girly vintage things with the industrial storage boxes. What a fun, inspiring and useful space!

Poppytalk Handmade

Welcome to those of you visiting from Poppytalk Handmade.
I'm so excited to be a featured vendor for Poppytalk's current market, "Mixed Tape," described as a "compilation of handmade & vintage goods for the fall". I concentrated mainly on vintage school related items.
It's certainly fun to look around at all of the goodies being offered. This market starts today, September 21st, so be sure to go and take a look! All of the vintage items can be found here, but there are several other catergories as well. Check back, too, as vendors will be updating and refilling their shops all of the time.
All of my my items featured on Poppytalk are available for purchase through my Etsy shop.

A Little Spooky

I'm having fun with this season at bellalulu!

I just can't pass up a great old doll, whether she has all of her limbs or not! The one above is all in one piece, but oh dear, her eyes are a little crazy.

These next two (both recently sold) don't even have eyes...or heads, for that matter!

There is no doubt that this one (now sold) is spooky. This "Little Miss No Name" was made by Hasbro in 1965, and discontinued that same year. I may be crazy, but I can still find a bit of sweetness in her face!

I'll leave you with this sweet guy. Someone commented to me today that HE is kind of spooky. I'm not sure what that person would say about the others pictured here!
