I'm so far behind on things. The holidays have just snuck up. Feels like it should just be the start of Fall but Christmas is less than a month away. I wasn't going to host this when I realized how close we are, but I know many of you look forward to it. So to make things simple only girls who have been in my swaps and know the rules and courtesy can sign up on this one.I'll open the Valentines swap for everyone to join in. Because we are limited on time USA swappers only....  Also since this will be more restricted you may be swapping with someone you have recently swapped with. General swap rules apply. Sign up by Dec 3. Mail by the 18th. Four items must be included. Since we are close it can be general or christmas theme. One item must be a handmade doll or critter.It can be bought or made by you but must be handmade not mass produced.. To sign up comment here. Then email me at cottageprims@hotmail.com   with your name,address,email,blog  please include if you have any allergies or dislikes as well as a short list of styles, favorite things etc. You will be contacted your partner so you can discuss with them as well.

Two lil Pumpkins

 My LiL Pumpkins wanted to wish you a Happy Halloween!
 Issaboo graciously greeted Trick or Treaters.Some of the little princess and goblins were just mesmerized by her cuteness they forgot all about the candy.Mung was not a very good boy so he had to go in the house were he pouted and his dad tried to console him with treats the neighbor bought for him....
Totally spoiled but who can resist that cuteness...smile....now onto November days...
