I'm a Big Fan of Lollies. . .

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!
I will be sharing with these fun Parties:

yes, I do like your "lollies" very much. It gives an old fashion look to your Halloween decor. The spooky banner across the typewriter is perfect for this time of year.

Those are so cute! I've not seen those here. I need to go on an adventure to find all the great shops like you find all the time. :)

Very, very, very cute. I have always loved lollies. So---tell me....what kind of 'contraption' do you have to help with the folding? Would love to see it. I never knew such a thing existed. xo Diana

I bought the template for my Sizzix to cut out the paper to make some, but have never used it. I think I need to get it out and give it a try.
