Here's my JOHANNA PARKER OOAK Halloween black cat collection that I've added to my fiber optic Christmas wreath.
I was delighted to have acquired Johanna's original Flower Pot Black Cat featured in the Better Homes & Garden October Holiday issue.
Johanna's pretty gift Black Cat Candy Box is the purrrrrfect finishing adornment!
Christmas Cross Decorating, it's a good thing. AND FUN TOO!
This third PIC includes my CHRISTY MEYER whimsical Black Cat Clock 'Mr. Wishes' who is keeping a watchful eye over everybody & guarding the door to my entrancing craft room...
My home is an ENCHANTING WONDERLAND because of the beautiful original art collections I have invested in.
MAY EVERYONE HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON WITH GOOD TIDINGS OF COMFORT & JOY, LYNDY
