The Paper Garden by Susan Tierney Cockburn – Summer Blooms

Good Monday to you all.

As usual, Monday’s are a zooming day but I wanted to get one item posted to my shop today and I chose this “how to” book by Susan Tierney Cockburn.

This lady knows how to make paper flowers like you wouldn’t believe!

The book is packed with pictures and instructions.  The flowers are created from paper and in conjunction with Punch Bunch paper punches.

There’s a huge selection of different flowers to make here, but I guarantee you that once you start you’ll want to make them all.

And WOW – wasn’t that a fast weekend?  I spent mine setting up Halloween in my front yard (with hubby’s help, of course, thank you honey).

This is the daylight version of my display.  The ghosts have been crowd pleasers for years.  I make them out of wire tomato racks, yards of gauze and plastic lighted pumpkins.

I have plenty of bones and even more pumpkins to light the little tricker-treaters way up to the door.  And did you notice my “Witches Parking Sign”?   Every one gets a good laugh out of that each year and I have smaller versions of these in my shop if you want to add one to your Halloween display, just click:

And new to this year’s porch display, two black pumpkin cats with black licorice tails.  I thought these were really cute!

Every year it seems another item gets added to my outdoor show, sometimes it’s something I made, sometimes it’s someone else’s creation – but it’s sure – I love Halloween.

Thanks for taking a look!  Tomorrow’s post will show my Halloween tricks and treats at night!  Stay tuned. – Kriss
