I am in. I want to be totally upfront with everyone. I have never done anything vintage before. I don't know that any of my stuff is vintage looking at all. Mine may look old. I'm not sure if I can do vintage-y. I'm in if that is cool with ya'll. I promise to do a good job

Oh no! I just reread the directions so went & measured all my teeny tiny milk glass/mason jars and they are not tall enough. boo hoo.

Wondering if I go with my idea and extend the height with decor like spray painted "dead" tree branches that brings overall height to a minimum of 2" if that'll be fine?

I finished my ornaments up last night. I will be mailing them out on Saturday. This was a lot of fun. I used paint chips and halloween garland to make my ornaments. I also ended up using 2 different images- #1: owl stickers and #2: vintage halloween child image. I couldn't decide what I liked best so made some of each.

OMgosh! those bottles are sooooo cute! So cute!

I just bought my stuff and cut my paper. You gals are so speedy, the ones that are done! I feel like a slow loser. Sheesh! I need the time. I have to procrastinate a few more days! LOL I was scared that I was late so I looked at the date again. I accept the fact that I will never be "That girl", the one done early.I just have to be one time! Can't wait to see all the work

These are being mailed today. Don't think DH mailed priority but will see. Trying to be patient with him as he has been with me doing everything since I've been out of commission now.
