Halloween is fast approaching & I made these 'mason jar lid' jack-o-lanterns from the rusty lids.
I painted the lids black with the Fusion paint I purchased from Candle In The Window Primitives & just love this paint product! It is a made in Canada product from Etobicoke ON.
The pumpkin faces were hand-stitched as they are no very big.
Check Susie's site out for really good free scrappy patterns & tutorials susies-scraps.com you will find the Japanese Knot Bag there too!
I cut slits through the paper for the mouth lines & just push a micro pen through to show dots for buttons or eyes. So easy to use if it is in with your kitchen supplies! I use it in the kitchen to line pans & baking sheets as I don't like cleaning messy pans/sheets from the oven.
They needed a good drink of Huberd's shoe oil & what a difference that made to these 1990 boots!
Back in the day, I enjoyed these boots so much that they were reheeled from the shoe cobbler from wear & tear of enjoying the use of them. Now I will wear them as part of my outfit as mother-of-the-groom next year at Nicole & Mitchell's wedding in Alberta.
We are having rain & wind today & the lovely fall colours are all on the ground now.
Soon we will be turning our clocks back to gain just a bit more daylight in the evening, it's dark at 6:30pm now making my bedtime earlier as I tire sooner in the dark.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit, come back again to see what I've been up to & I'll add the furbabies in too!
Take care, stay warm.
