Rosettes, fans, or lollies, whatever you want to call them;
I am in love!
Yup, I'm a big fan of lollies, (which is the word that I choose to call them.) Don't they look just like big lollipops to you?
I often use them in my crafting. They are a fun addition to almost any craft. I've used them a lot in banners.
I have a fun little contraption that makes them a bit easier to make.
But I actually bought these large ones at a local shop called, Retro Betty's. It is owned by the daughter of one of my friends.
I layered some of the lollies and then added the vintage images that came with the set.
I used the sticky circles that came with them to add them to a black vintage window I had. Years ago I modge podged the newspaper pennant border along the top. They kept falling, so ended up hot gluing them to the window.
I thought my black and white witch and moon and star banner was the perfect addition!
I added a black glittery branch and tucked stars in here and there.
The tarnished tea set was a thrift find. Perfect for a witches tea! This pumpkin had an eerie feel to me and fit perfect in the silver pedestal. This is when I prefer my silver tarnished.
This was one of the quickest mantles I have ever put together. May just be one of my favorites as well. :)
How about you, Do you love lollies?
The hearth is decorated with the 'spooky' urn arrangement I made with craft group #1 last year and a pillow I
made many moons ago. lol!
On the other side of the fireplace is my 'party animal' crows having a hay day on my old type writer and a silly skelly I bought at Glitterfest in CA last week.
Only a little more than a week till the hauntingly fun day is here!
