A Witchy Swap!

Hey Y'all how are ya today?
Waiting for the first frost of fall here!
It feels like it will never arrive!
 That morning the first frosty morning is my Cream Of Wheat morning, it is a silly little tradition I have,
 just for me as Lee hates Cream of Wheat...ha ha ha.
I am a seasonal eater too, so hot cereal is not a Summer food for me.
Do you eat seasonally too?

I was so excited that I  was able to participate in Vivian's  Witchy Hat Swap.
It was such fun trying to decide what to do...Do I alter a fabric hat?  Do I send just a tiny hat and lots of goodies? Do I paint or paper a paper mache hat??? Decisions!
 In the end I decided to send to Lynn at Life on the Wienee Ranch a painted paper mache hat that I embellished the devil out of...teehee.
I also included a big ole bunch of goodies, which I neglected to photograph :( oh well, hopefull you will see it on Lynn's blog!
Here is how my hat turned out

It was such a fun swap!
Thanks Viv for hosting it!


  1. How fun! I've seen so many wonderful hats and this one is amazing! I'm saving the hat pictures to my Blog Friends folder. I know that Lynn will love it...she's a sweetheart. =D

  2. I was to late to join the swap. But I love your hat is so darn cute. I am your newest follower and just love your blog.

  3. darling holiday hat! super witchy, indeed. thanks for sharing!

  4. Viv sure came up with a great idea, when she decided to host a witch's hat swap!! Your's looks terrific!! Love it!!


  5. How darn cute is that hat! LOVE it!!!

    Cream of wheat? I haven't thought about that in years! Wish I could eat it - I'm gluten free now:(

    Enjoy your weekend!


  6. Oh Jenny! Your hat is fabulous! I so wish I had seen a few of these hats before I made my very boring one. I had no idea all the things that could be done with them. I just sat and stared at mine. Beautiful! Lynn will love this hat. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth

  7. Ethel,
    That hat is amazing!!!!! I love it!!!! You are so good. I'm keeping my eyes open for one of those. Thanks for visiting and the nice comment you left. I have to tell you, after several people telling me to look elsewhere for that cookie jar, I did find the same one on sale for like 56 dollars. By the time I get some money it will probably be gone, but so far that's not a bad price. Not sure what the shipping would be. Tell Fred he was right about looking for a better price, but then, what else would you expect from Fred?
    So happy you did such a great job on your swap, you rock Miss Ethel. Love ya, Lucy

  8. Love your hat. You did a wonderful job. I was to late in joining in the swap. DARN IT! But I am making a few. They are so much fun to make.

  9. WOW!!! Your hat is amazing!! I love all of the embellishing you did. Super job!
    And, I love cream of wheat!! I agree, not a summer food.

  10. Your embellishments are great, and the end result is beautiful! Nice Work Hugs,Tee

  11. Gotta love embellishments. teehee This looks great.
    Only have one question, WHERE WAS I? ;)

  12. Wait, don't answer that. I know where I was, I was at other swaps and 20 parties. teehee I wish this season would never end.
