The spider webs are from an incredible set of stamps. The strands on the web are very fine and the web design is seriously cool. I've also used them on my latest house which I will have finished in a couple of days. I'm working on making better twisted trees as well.

Thank you for your encouragement.
Lucy

Hilda's Haberdashery - another Two-Sided Miniature Halloween Shop selling the Finest Hats and Capes this side of the Moon. I was asked to be a guest designer for an online challenge with a topic of "Haberdashery." It's sponsored by a store that sells scrapbooking supplies. This is what I came up with. I had a lot of fun making the details for this little shop.

This next house is the Haunted Schoolhouse so named because that's what it looks like to me. Working on the pattern.

Ebonywood Mansion is based on the same pattern as the Haunted Schoolhouse, but with a shallower steeple. And I remembered to add twin chimneys.

I made another bat wing house. This is the 4th bat wing house I've made and the most successful in my mind. For some reason it was so much easier than the previous ones.
