Lone Star Showcase #10

"Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. Let me introduce myself." ~Alfred Hitchcock

I love Alfred Hitchcock movies! Don't you? And this weekend I think that I just might have to watch a few. 

My favorites are; The Birds and The Rear Window. I remember watching the The Birds as a kid and being scared out of my britches. Still love the movie. And did you know that Alfred Hitchcock had a cameo appearance in everyone one of his movies. Now the one that scared me the most and still does is Psycho...eeeewwwh, creeepy!

What does this have to do with Handmade In TX and the Lone Star Showcase? Nothing, but it is Halloween weekend and that's a great time to link up any of your handmade in Texas Halloween designs, if you have a blog, share your Halloween decor by linking up a fright filled blog post with pics of course.

Not into the whole Halloween thing...that's okay too. Link up those lovely shops, designs and products that you've been working on all week. We want to see!!!

Here's a few of my faves from last week's Lone Star Showcase... 

Olive Oil Mango Shea Butter Handmade Soap by Kaci Waller with Three Chicks Soap Company.

 I love the swirls and the colors of this soap...olive oil and mango. Yum!

Next we have Plant Charmers for Kayz Kreationz
These are darling.

and then there is this lovely from the Gemmed pretty!  I love the color of these freshwater pearls.  
And, guess what?  The Gemmed Giraffe is having a 30% sale until the end of October!  Sweet there's still time!
