I won a Rustic Goth blog giveaway - WOWZER!

I am not very good at following/commenting on random blogs bc I am not a creative or artistic person AND most bloggers are AND I just don't feel - well - an equal to those who can and do create. They create and what do I do - only read.

However, I do follow some blogs I found through Etsy shops. Merchants and artists from whom I have purchased things and feel a bit of a connection to. Rustic Goth is one.

I purchased some AMAZING postcards, ACEOs, a print, and a mirror from Rustic Goth finding such delight in the little goth girls who mirror the sullen looks of the dolls in my Agnes Dreary collection. Many of Rustic goth items I have gifted to fellow Drearyians who are also delighted with the pieces!

So when I learned that Rustic Goth was having a giveaway for a Creepers Calendar 2010 I commented to enter and was one of the three to win a hard copy calender. I am bursting with joy!

Thank you Rustic Goth.

Here is a peek at how some of the Rustic Art pieces are currently being used with my doll collection displays - I just love them!

We swapped and this is what I got : )

Cheeryaboutagnesdreary does a few swaps every year. Since we've only been around since August 2007, that's really only a few but we all love little gifities (or pressies as Nikki calls them) so that we always seem to be sending things all over the world to each other! LOL

Because Agnes is a Dark child, we call the Christmas swap - the NB4X exchange. Drearyian Ginger was my Secret Santa or should I say Secret SKELLY! She really zeroed in on my interests: funky socks, stockings for the dolls, Edward Gorey, and Agnes Dreary in a pastel Victorian theme.

Thanks you, Ginger and Dreary hugs coming your way!!!

Let it snow - 2009

First snow is here - just in time for Christmas in our Hometown. Activites began last PM.

For me - I prefer the quiet comfort I can see sitting by my computer looking through the glass door. Thank you Mother Nature and welcome Mr. Snowman. : )

Classic Jackie Kennedy fashions - for the dolls

Always enjoyed the classic styles of the 60s. Sooo when a JK FM with 6 MIB fashion were on Ebay as a BIN for an affordable price - I bought them. Such beautiful fabric and fashions.

Cheery Dreary swap

Hope my Cheeryaboutagnesdreary swap partner likes her gift!

Who knew Peter Lawlor was so great?

Still enjoying clever ever adverts with background music composed by Peter Lawlor. This vintage Levi Creek ad is the BEST!
