Vintage Halloween Charm Swap

I think I'm going to participate in 
I'll need to create 10 charms, nicely packaged.
It will be fun to receive other people's creations in return.
I love surprises!
I don't have too much jewelry making experience,
but that makes it all the more fun.
Won't you also join?  It will be fun.

Doll Display

My latest project - organize and display my dolls.
 I bought three inexpensive shelves 
(that could be used later for art supplies) 
and lined them up side by side to create a large shelf area.
 Each section (mostly) sticks to a theme.
Above are Alice and gnome themed goodies.
Dolls and masks I've had for a long time.
I used to collect Pierrot clowns and masks.
Dawn dolls - you just can have too many.
Their population keeps growing.
 Dazzle dolls - just a little smaller than Dawn dolls.
I haven't removed them from their packaging yet.
Glamour Gals - even smaller.
The cruise ship on top of the shelf is theirs.
 Barbies.  I used to have LOTS of Barbies.
They haven't survived moves over the years.
 LOTS of books.  I love books.
Books and magazines on fashion dolls,
fairy tales, costumes....
 A few of my large (16-17") fashion dolls.
There are waaaaaaay too many to display.
That's another project.
 Just some knick knacks.

One of these days I'll find a large buffet/hutch for display.
For now, this works great!
Much better than dolls on the floor.
