Do you know Amy?

Do you all know Amy over @ Mittens? Well if you don't, then you need to hop on over there right away and see the creativity she shares on a regular basis! She is generous as well, and some time back... really back... she had a book cover party and she had a giveaway to go along with the party for those of us who participated. I won one of her prizes and this is the perfect week to show you all of the goodness inside that adorable trick or treat bag.
First of all this adorable little pillow will be staying out long after Halloween because these little ones are carrying candles to bed not too scary right?
They are now being held by the doll I made quite awhile ago when I used to do primitive crafts, the pillow actually inspired me to bring down the doll and put him in a little folding chair I found this summer. The perfect fit for one another don't ya think? My neighbors granddaughter came over one day and that is the first thing she picked up in the house to play with, she dragged it everywhere, it was so cute.
These are the surprises tucked inside the bag! I know right? Sooooo Cool, I haven't really bought much to decorate for Halloween, I didn't really need to thanks to Amy! Everything is just fabulous and full of her creatively genius touch! I have the little tag with the baby on it hanging from the silver bucket that is holding a gorgeous gray/green pumpkin...
this tag is hanging from a candelabra with black candles in the living room...
This very cool box with 612 (thanks Amy, your the best) on it sits on the mantel in the dining room. I love how she used a little sword for the one but Max thinks that is extra cool!...
and this Bingo card is decorating a portrait of a man that I glued a mask and hat onto. Yep I just hot glued the black wool hat and a mask like lone ranger right to the glass, instant Halloween! I hung him on the front porch. I will take more photos when the wind isn't threatening to blow me away! It is a blustery day Pooh Bear!
