DIY- A whole assortment of pumpkin baskets.

Since I was making baskets anyway (link to post on cat baskets) figured I might as well continue and make some pumpkin themed baskets as well.

DIY- Cat baskets for Halloween treats

I should let my daughter write this post up. This is her expertise, all things fashion. She is a fashion fanatic. Anyway here they are…beautiful clothes and designs from the 1920’s. At least I think they are pretty. The fashion ads are all works of art. Some of the dresses back in the 20’s were…

Home decorating from the 1920’s…part two
