...also known as...the other part of Susan's Halloween present. All year long I pick things up as I find them, then stow them away in a big basket in my studio, which inevitably overflows into a second basket. Every October when I dig it all out to box it up I shake my head at how much I've managed to accumulate. Every year the mix is different.
I live in the Cherry Capital of the world, Susan loves cherries...we were meant to be Besties.
