A Few Small Purchases

I found a few things at the Dollar Tree that I think will be useable for a Halloween scene,
to meet the   Spooky Challenge   posted by Cyd of   Mini Mod Pod.

These are a bit too big (about 1 - 1 1/4 inch) to look like real leaves but as fall decorations I'm sure that there are lots of uses.

I like the colors, green, red, orange and 2 shades of brown, all in the 3 shapes. 

I found these rings in 2 different mixes.  I found the ones with some in purple and green first, then later at another store I found a bag that has just  black bats, white skulls and orange spiders.

Here's a close-up, they are nicely detailed,  I really like the bat.  The ring on the back make good stands but can also be cut off very easily.

Also from Dollar Tree

Sometimes I find things  that are more useful when used as something other than their intended purpose.

I don't really need the toothbrushes

or a toothbrush holder.

What I do need is more organized tools.

This container works great for many different tools,

I have some of my favorite clay tools in this one.

You can use it with the cover on,
      to keep dust off,
      makes it easy to carry

or use the cover to hold more tools

I allowed Jaynie to put an item in with my order from Amazon.

Look at what she bought.

She is very happy with her purchase.

It is a Fisher Price, Loving Family, Minivan.

It has a working horn, really cute, and a radio button, really annoying.

It also came with a dog and a bag of groceries,
I forgot to get a picture, if you are interest let me know and I will take one.

I'm going to go work on the Halloween scene now.
Jaynie has been digging through draws and boxes looking for things for a halloween costume.

We should have more to show you tomorrow, hopefully.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
