The Rambler said…
I don't know how you do it.

Your amazing. :)
Estela said…
Oh wowza! Is there anything I DON'T like??

I decorate my home with vintage and antique items, so those plaques and the owl would be perfect.

The owl soap is gorgeous!

The voodoo dolls...GOTTA have one! They are soooo cute! Ha!

The garlands would be amazing to use at Halloween.

The UGLYDOLLS!!! Well, truly, they're more adrable than ugly, aren't they?

So glad you're back! Yay for no more blogouts!
Deb said…
i love the owl soap, too. and the voodoo babies.

you are pretty incredible, dawn, to be doing all of this.
Marie Reed said…
I'm with MaryCatherine my FAV are the uglydolls! They are so quirky and cute! I'll have to feature them on my blog too! I'm sure that I can find a related vintage postcard;)
Kelly said…
We are in love with ugly dolls over here. That is quite a collection you have pictured! I loved the voodoo baby dolls too! Halloween is my fave!
Bobby G said…
Those dolls are ugly as shit! You need to have a garage sale girl! Seriously, Im worried about you...lol
Mother Mayhem said…
There's a soft spot in my heart for those ugly dolls. ;o)
blognut said…
I LOVE the VooDoo babies! I'm going to have to get some of those because now my life cannot be complete without them, you know? I need to add them to my collection of office toys.
Mimi said…
OMG, I just spit water on my screen. I thought one of your objects was called "Glitter Crow & Butt Harp Dangles"!

Zoinks! Better get my brain back in gear. FYI, I would not buy Butt Harp Dangles, lol.
sclangs said…
I like the plush snowy owl. I think my kids would wrestle me to the ground to get it though. They are on a Harry Potter kick around here and I could totally see them using that owl in their pretending. Hmmmm...maybe I need to get one for them.
Mimi said…
The brooms are magnificent & the VooDoo Babies are fantastic. I love your collection.
Me said…
The crafted brooms are totally my style! I.LOVE.THEM. And the owl sign that read "this way"!! You have some of the cutest stuff!!
Claire said…
Oh my, I love the owl soap. Owls are so popular right now (all birds, I guess) which is awesome for me! And Laura spotted the owl puppet and now wants it. Those are good quality puppets too; that brand is what we used at the library for story time (back when I worked there).

I am so excited to hear more about your store/Etsy shop! Do tell!
Beverly said…
Dawn, I am so glad you got your computer issues worked out. We woke up this morning to a similar problem with the computer in our kitchen. Luckily, I have a second computer in my home office and we recently added internet access to it. I'd be lost without my friends in the computer!!
Noah's Mommy said…
amazingly talented.....the brooms are amazing...and the bat harp dangles...must haves....

Oh, that is SO hard to choose! I adore the snowy owl, but I also love the voodoo dolls and the uglydolls! The owl soap is wicked crazy cool, too! I have a thing for owls.
Heather said…
Show me a Halloween decoration and I will like it! My most favorites are the VooDoo babies and the vintage/primitive decorations!
Oh man! this giveaway has been amazing! I can't wait till we get this yacht done so I can spend some money! :D

I have to say that I LOVE those Owl soaps! I wouldn't use them of course and bash people on the head if they tried....but they would make for the most adorable bathroom decoration!!
Cadance said…
You just made me forget all about how much i wanted Summer weather...forget Summer I want it to be Halloween Season...I can't wait to shop your etsy this fall...you have great style!

I love the garland and dangles...I love the brooms...and the owl soap...even your images at the top of the post are cute...I ♥ the siloette with the potted tree and pumpkin in it....that is cute!

Brooke said…
I LOVE the brooms! I also love both of the owl things (soap and puppet). SO FUN!!!!!
Randi Troxell said…
i luuurrrve the glitter crow and bat harp dangles... super cool!
pam said…
You have no idea...we are Halloween freaks around here. Not exactly popular with the ultra-Christians down the street in October. Please, please put my name on that BOO sign. And don't let me forget about it. Love it. Looking forward to seeing you out and about again.

xox
Eeeeks! I can't pick just one thing I like, it's all sooo good! But I think my favorite of the bunch is the uglydolls. I have a thing for uglydolls...I always want to give them a good home, because they're just so darn cute. I mean, look at their faces, (even the faces with one too many eyes...) they're just begging for a home. hehe
The VooDoo Dolls are really cute too. I think you've given everyone a cute overload, here. (Wait, is there such a thing as too much cute? ....never!)
SO said…
Okay I'm in love with the witchy woman pumpkin and the ugly dolls. Oh and the little voodoo babies! Too fun!

I'm glad that your blogout is over. Thank heavens for the Geek squad.
Kristina P. said…
I love the garland!!
B said…
There are too many cute things! The ones I fell in love with are the voo doo babies.

It's great your doing an overhaul and revamping. When it's all done and the dust settles you are going to have to give us a heads up so we can all head over and check it out. Can't wait.
Annie said…
WOW! I had no idea you had yourself a little shop! Good for you!!!!!

We don't do much in the line of Halloween, but I must say I adored the owl soap! Beautiful.

I will admit...I am smitten by the voo doo babies...smitten!!
You shop owner you. How cool. I am loving that owl soap. What a hoot. All of the things are great.

Tranquility said…
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those Ugly Dolls... and I don't know why. There is just something fun and appealing about them!
That Owl soap is also very, very neat. I would be afraid to actually use it though - so I guess I just might have to stock up so I can have fresh ones to use on a whim.
I'm not really into Halloween (I know... what's wrong with me, right?), but your goodies do look like a lot of fun and I might have to do a bit of extra decorating this October ;) - Those VooDoo Babies are hilarious! I love that they have those little hearts, making them seem so innocent and sweet - haha!
Kim said…
Everything is really cute, but I especially like the artisan brooms!
Kat said…
I am so freakin in love with the VooDoo Babies. How cute are those?
Lorie said…
Fun!! and 26 items! That is huge!
I think the voodoo babies are my favorite but the Glitter Crow & Bat Harp Dangles are nearly as cute. :)
kimmiekat said…
I absolutely love the fact that you have a shop centered around Halloween. I love the brooms. My son's birthday is on Halloween and we always decorate. This year, he will be 14 and he really wants us to do a walk through Haunted House. talk about needing a whole lot of stuff.
Amy said…
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!! I can't believe I landed here! My very very very favorite time of year is Halloween Time. It's not even called "Fall" in my house. I can't wait to peruse your shop. I'm giddy with excitement!!!
A Psych Mommy said…
I love those Ugly dolls! They are just too cute!
The Boob Nazi said…
The snowy owl puppet reminds me of Hedwig from Harry Potter. I am such a nerd that I like it because of that!
Debra said…
I love the brooms.....must be the witch in me! Ha,ha!
Ann said…
I think these items are wonderful! I especially like vintage Halloween styles. (I have a hanging decoration that's called "Witchy Woman Doing The Watusi" She dances her little heart out every Halloween :-> )

What an incredible giveaway!

Ann Again... and again

Shannon said…
I like the "witchy woman" pumpkin!
Michelle said…
Ok, the Ugly Doll are just way too fun. I've seen them in a bunch of places and always want to stop to play with them.

The vintage signs? Way cool... I love the first two of those, especially.

Nerdy Jess said…
Gosh! I had to scroll forevas to get to the end of the comments!

I'm in love with the owl stuff! Oh and I think the ugly dolls would make perfect nursery decorations ;)

xooxo
LadyStyx said…
The owl soap is beautiful but Im more drawn to the owl puppet (ok, so Im a kid at heart and love stuffed animals!). Those little uglies are ummm nice too but not for me. My cat would love them if they're small enough. Her favorite toy looks like a few of them. She drags it around by its tail and plays catch with herself with it.
The French Bear said…
All the stuff is fantastic, but I love those brooms!!! Ha they are so funny, with their own faces!! What great art work and design!!

♥georgie♥ said…

Oh My Goodness, where to start. The ugly dolls are cute, I really like the owl soap and the "this way" sign w/ the owl and the enchanted brooms are fabulous! All really creepy cool stuff.
Jolene said…
I like the ugly dolls! They are so cute. I also like the owl 'this way' sign.

Donnetta said…
Voodoo dolls - TOO CUTE!! But my FAV - the enchanted brooms! The faces are way cool!!
Lauren said…
I love that owl soap. It's so detailed. And the voodoo babies are cute. Too hard to pick one thing!
Sara and Alex said…
Of course I love the Owl soap (having a passion for Owls and all) but...I really want the Boo banner. I am so excited for Halloween that I already have two costumes for my 9 month old. Good thing she really is excited about halloween (hahaha). In the future I plan to have halloween parties for her like I had as a kid. Apple bobbing included! I will certainly keep an eye on your etsy shop!
I think this will be considered my second and last entry!

I really really hope I win!!
Becky said…

Wow! (again) You are talented.

That owl soap looks great, and I love that snowy owl puppet. Also that hanging with the owl that says 'this way.' Soooo cute. That little pink voodoo doll is cute too.

You are amazing!

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
