Top Hat Derby Hop!!

Here's my entry into Kecia's Top Hat Derby Hop... Hope you like it!!  I know Clyde did!!!

In keeping with the Holiday Spirit, I made mine with lots of antique german glass glitter and bling!!

I used lots of antique lace & vintage rhinestone jewelry

and of course had to add a frozen charlotte doll!!

She's all dressed up to go to the party!!

She even is bringing along her trophy!!

*note the empty place on the front of the trophy!! Will a number 1 be put there?? hmmmm, I guess we will just have to wait and see what Kecia thinks!!

The back has a nice big bow and of course a gold and silver glittered bird decided to hitch a ride!!!

Here are some other views......

I have decided I will be wearing my hat this New Years Eve!!

Thank you Kecia for hosting this! It was alot of fun and I can not wait to see all the competition!! ;-)

Christmas is just around the corner!!!

Ok, So I'm sayin it!! YIKES!!!
Christmas is only.....weeks away....
Now I know what you all are saying....I can't believe she is already going there, skipping right over Thanksgiving!! I promise I will not, but I just had to say this out loud!! I have soooo much to do...
I put up 8 trees in my little tiny house...
I have to decorate the Antique Center...I have to buy presents, I have to make a whole ton of Christmas stuff, etc...etc....etc...!!!
There I said it out loud! I thought if I did I would somehow feel better!!
I don't...I am now in a panic!!
So...I have to remember to breathe.................

I think I will sign up for some yoga classes!!

Namaste everyone!!

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells
I honor the place in you
which is of love, of truth,
of integrity, of wisdom and of peace
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me
we are one

WOW!! I feel better already!!! ;p

Last weekend a few of the girls and I got together.

Our mission was to have a lite bite to eat .. and then...decorate some witches hats....

...of course I had to decorate the table...

so I made place card holders, napkins rings, and paper cones in keeping with the Halloween spirit!!

Then we had a nice bowl of yummy onion soup...

After lunch, we got down to serious business...

This is my hat...

and this is what some of the ladies came up with....

Sandi, Beverly, and Marlene...

This was Marlene's finished hat...

Grace had a previous dinner engagement. So she had to leave early. BUT... she emailed me pictures later that evening and OMG!!! her hat came out Beautiful!!

and the other ladies.....

Diane, Nancy and MJ with their hats...

THE END..........or... is it???

WWHHHHAAAAAAAAAAA HAHAHAHA!!!!! after everyone left...the skeletons and I did something!!
WE COPIED!! someones hat!! HAHAHAHAHA!!
I had too!!! I loved Marlene's hat sooooo much, that I had to make one for me...This is how my version came out...

Thank you ladies for such a lovely inspirational day!!!

I dedicate this hat (doesn't mean she is getting it! lol) to Carla Gizzi, who could not stay for the hat decorating...She had to leave right after lunch to go to an event she was having at her Shop in Asbury Park. I know she really wanted to make a hat and she was missed..

Now don't forget! It is only 2 days until Halloween!!
If you leave a comment, I am having a random drawing on Sunday night...the winner will receive something pictured on my halloween blog...
