Teeny Tiny Pumpkins...

When I found the tiniest pumpkins ever...

(click photos to enlarge)

I knew they would fit into my tiny
demitasse teacups...


So... I had to make an Autumn inspired teacup stack :-)


Since one cloche leads to another...
then there were two...


I took started an on-line tutorial class...

Romantic Gothic Ghosts


This is my first attempt :-)
The class is too fun!!
Loaded with tips and tricks...

She supplies lots of graphics to download..
I used some of hers and a couple of mine...
Go check out her side bar if your interested!


I repurposed my "Creating Sepia" centerpiece
from last week

Placing it under glass
and adding a crow...

One cloche
really led to three :-)

Tonight I am joining...

That sweet little pumpkin probably would have been overlooked by many but you gave it a home and role to play under the cloche.
The card you made is hauntingly beautiful Bella, nice job for your first attemp.
I'll have to go and have a look.
