This beautiful owl necklace is just perfect for fall and Halloween, handmade by Amanda of Ruby's Pocket. I buy Amanda's jewelry just as much for decorating as for wearing!
Here she is last year, a.k.a. Miss "Jaqueline O' Lantern," Looking very chic in her vintage black velvet hat, crow feather boa and very vintage owl necklace. Miss Jaqueline will be appearing again in an upcoming Halloween post, or at least her head will!
Check out that awesome $1 estate sale clutch purse in orange and black, perfect for Halloween parties! You can see more of my shabby Halloween from 2012 here:
I also want to show you my pumpkin gal in my booth at the Catlettsburg Antique Mall, located in Catlettsburg, KY. I have dressed her in layers of old petticoats and skirts, a vintage apron, jean jacket, oodles of pearls, and an adorable burlap and straw hat. She is definitely a junker! See her pockets full of little treasures?
It's so much fun and so easy to dress up your dress form, and if you don't have one you can always make a traditional scarecrow look sassy and use her inside. Use trash bags to stuff a long dress (stuff sweat pants or pj's under the skirt and tuck the legs into some boots, making sure the skirt is long enough to cover the tops of the boots) and place a cheap fake pumpkin on the top with your hat of choice. Use long gloves for the hands or tuck her hands behind a large handbag. Sit your gal down in a corner chair and there you go!
Miss Autumn is ready for a fun-filled October and so am I!
Hope you have fun playing dress up this month, whether it's yourself, your kids, or your dress form. It's Halloween time. Embrace it!!!!
