Happy Halloweeeeen!!!

Our Squire, who we call, "The Howling Boo Cat" sends his best spooky howling HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Doesn't he look like he enjoys his devilish costume?

Look what I received as a very special thank you from Paula of Michigan who was the winner of my "Grinning Jack" painting doorprize at SpookyTimeJingles.com. These are adorable and very Halloweeny! Thank you, Paula!!!

WIP and our... Adoption

A peek at some works in progress.....some for SpookyTimeJingles.com and others for an upcoming show.




The face that only a "mother" could love? This has got to be the largest algae eater that I've ever seen! Some friends who also have a pond and rasied this guy from a wee little thing asked if we could please give him an inside home for the winter as he is somewhat of a tropical fish and would never be able to withstand the winter chill. We agreed, and set up another aquarium to house this fish which I do find to be wierdly cute!

More Halloween Decorating

If you haven't brought out that box of Halloween decorations yet.....I hope this can be of some inspiration to you. This first picture is of a Halloween vignette that I created in our living room and I had posted it on my Flicker at the beginning of October. I'm amazed at the response this has received---to date over 300 views!



Another vignette----the witches have captured some unsuspecting trick-or-treaters in a glass bubble!



My rather humble Halloween tree that I made from a recycled/reclaimed Easter tree. I just started collecting ornaments for Halloween so I don't have many and the ones you see are mostly the ones I've made for SpookyTimeJingles (which if you go there you could get one for yourself !)



My collection of primitive dolls greet trick-or-treaters--- some I've made and others were gifts from friends.

Happy October 1st!!!!!

Just to get you in the mood for decorating for this glorious and spooky month of October, I wanted to share with you how we do Halloween at our house. Everything you see gets set up the day of halloween and it has been a surprise reveal to everyone in the neighborhood. We've had to inlist the help of some additional "ghouls", i.e. family members, to dress up and add to the fun. Each year the display gets bigger and better!




Be sure to keep coming back this month as I'll be posting more pictures of my indoor decorations and also previewing all the new halloween goodies that I've been working on for my Etsy shop and also SpookyTimeJingles!
