A spooky little witch

This year, Bug wanted a spooky costume for the school Halloween parade. That was a change from princess the previous 2 hers so I went along.

I found the flocked satin at JoAnn's in the remnant bin, made a skirt adding a satin border and waistband then added some glittery spiders that were sold a table decorations.

Hot glued purple feathers to a regular witch had and added some more glitter spiders.

The top is a regular black long sleeve t-shirt to which I added a tulle ruffle and feather around the collar.

The final touch is a lace wrap with a purple border

 Abracadabra!! This whole getup cost me less than $15 :)

Pearl chandelier earrings

I love fresh water pearls. Their irregularity make them interesting and challenging. I had those chandelier earring bases in my bead stash for the longest time and finally figured what to do with them when I sorted everything out to pack for the big move and made those just before when sold our townhouse. I just never got around posting about it. 

They are fun and go with just about any outfit. The only downside is they are a bit heavy so I might replace the hooks with clips.

Having fun with beads

We are still camping in tight quarters while we figure out the house situation... and since small projects are easier to tackle in small spaces, here are a couple of things I have been working on:

I am not sure what I will do with this piece of lace now that I have added all those pearls: a bib necklace, a cuff, a corsage embellishment?? I'm open to suggestions.

Still loving making those simple ribbon flowers. This one will be perfect for the winter :)
