Fall Goodies from Debbie

 For the Harvest Gatherings Swap Debbie of Barefoot Primitives was my partner. She really spoiled me. I love the cloth Jack o Lantern light. (Her own pattern)... Tucked in the little box are Halloween spool ornies with tinsel trim.....
 Amazed with the high button shoe pinkeep. Debbie made the shoe with cloth and it's hard to tell the difference between my 100 year old antique ones. Such talent my sweet friend has.
Thank you Debbie for the absolutely beautiful gifts!   I'll be back on in a few days with a few pics of my fall decor. Also will posting the Ornie swap the beginning of next week. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun.~Amy
