Halloween Post 4 ~ Shopping at Maysage & Birch















In another life, I would own a real shop like this... this and my Woolembees that is.. I would be greedy and have two shops!! :) Oh, to have an antique shop like the one on Ghost Whisperer, I would be in my element... I don't want the ghosts mind you! LOL Anyway, stop dreaming, I can't have either, so I will just have to 'own' them in miniature and I will fill them with my own hand stitched cushions and pots and some Artisan delights from my friends in Blogland :) So, lets get ready for halloween.... come shopping with me in my little Maysage and Birch Shop.....

First, let's peek through the window to see what delights await us...


















..... a magical pumpkin jar from Nikki and a gorgeous basket from Glenda.

On to the front door...



















Still peeking as we push it open....



















Ooh.. my kind of shop, I could spend hours browsing in here....



















There are brooms from Nikki and NickyCC, Owl staffs and books from Julie and halloween goodie bags from Oberon's Wood.



















Pumpkin teapots from Lory, cushions, bowls, pumpkins and balls of string by me :)



















Hats by Kat, pumpkin jar and candle bottle by Nikki, tapestry and sweets by me :)



















Candy canes in a spider dotted jar by Ali-mini



















Pots and pumpkins by me :)



















On over to the counter now, shall we stop for a sweet or maybe a pumpkin cookie and wonder at how comfy those cushions will be....



















or glance up at the decorations, more pumpkins to see...















Well, it's time to be off now
For you see
I must prepare
For Gertie's Halloween Party ... Hee Hee

  18. Thankyou Glenda, I love making little shops like these :) Did you see your beautiful basket in pride of place in the window? The colours are perfect and when all the halloween goodies are packed away, your basket will stay :)

  20. I thought I was the only person in the world that watched Ghost Whisperer and dreamed of having a shop like that (without the ghosts :))!

    There was an episode once where she had a table covered in either miniatures or a miniature village in the shop. I kept pausing it to try and look at it all :).

    I really like the wall decorations in that last picture!
