SoCal Blogger Conference & Halloween Tag

Do I have a treat for you today!  I am going to talk about the SoCal blogger conference I attended this past weekend and my halloween tags. Vivienne from The V spot and Bev from Flamingo Toes were the great hosts of this event.
The SoCal conference was here in California and was an event where local bloggers could meet other fellow bloggers. Their were so many different kind of bloggers at the convention and everyone was super sweet. 
I had the great pleasure of spending the day with Dinah from DIY Inspired & Jen from Something Turquoise. The first part of the day we spent it going to shops who help sponsor the event. Each shop had little treats waiting for us. I just loved stopping by all the antique shops!! 
All things I got to see!!! One of my favorite things that I wish I had was this cute bird cage with a chandelier in it.
Who would not want to own an antique fan?! Oh by the way its also a lamp.

One of the many antique store that I went to had this beautiful display. 

However, my most favorite thing I found while exploring the many antique stores was finding this creepy painting! I would so want to have this painting in my room. Does that make me a little crazy? hehe. 

Oh and I also found this creepy doll that I would not want to have in my home but it was great to look at!
Of course I could not just go into antique stores and not buy something?
I purchased a test tube holder, Halloween inspired jewelry,ribbon and a monocle.
The one of other great thing about going to the blogger conference was the swag I got!! Look at the amount of stuff I got to drag home.
Just in case you though it could not get any better, I also got to meet Mark Montano!!!! I got the pleasure to sit next to him most of the night and talk about life and crafts and it gets a lot better we all got an advance copy of his new book The Big Ass Book of Bling.  
Yep, that’s Mark and me at the blogger dinner. He was so down to earth and very friendly. I was so happy to attend the conference and I hope to make it next year. 
Now for the Halloween Tags. I though I was all caught up but I forgot Halloween tag #22.

Halloween Tag #23. 

I hope you are all liking what you see.

Happy Haunting’s

    I am so jealous, but so happy for you! It sounds like you had the perfect weekend! I love that creepy doll and the old canisters of medications! Great swag and how awesome that you were able to meet Mark!!! I’m surprised you even remembered to post after a dream conference like that. Two more stunning tags! I love the color combo and flowers and lace in your first tag and like the muted tones in your second tag. I really dig that skeleton image the the metal numbers 🙂

    What fun the conference must have been. I’m pretty jealous too! The antique store looks yummy!
    Your two tags are as beautiful as usual! Gorgeous colors and as someone said before almost masculine and feminine!
