The Mermaid Chair my husband made and I love her. I love the richness of the walnut wood she's made of. She will soon be on her way to a happy home in Arizona. I'm not sure how the economy is affecting any one's art sales. I can tell you how very happy and grateful I am for those wonderful people who are still supporting the Arts! :)
I took the moon shot from my kitchen window. I just love the way she was peaking through the trees. Have a wonderful and magical monday everyone.

I snapped this shot of a white morning glory after the rain we had. I love these vines sometimes they come up on their own. The other pic. is of a paddy pan squash I think. It's in the pumpkin patch and will be eaten instead of carved!

Here's what I've been working on. The Witch is taking longer than I thought. Her hair soaks up paint like you wouldn't believe. I was going to mount her on a spindle but her head is too big. The Jol box is almost done and I hope to post his happiness on ebay later today. Lastly, I'm happy with the way Mr. Owl is coming along. He's about 7 1/2 inches high. He's holding two Jol buckets one grumpy and one happy. I love Owls! If he doesn't find a Happy Halloween home I've got the perfect place for him! Have a Spooky Day everyone! :) Becca

Just what's blooming. The picture of the blacked Susan's is my the front of my home. The other side has mint which is in bloom. The bees love it. I was told if you plant mint in your yard it helps bring wealth. Well I have a lot of it as it is very invasive and spreads. I should be winning that lotto any day now! :) The lanterns are blooming and are a wonderful orange! I was happy to see the chipmunks did not eat all the lilies! Have a wonderful Monday everyone!

I was hoping these were Lumina Pumpkins but I believe they are from a Jack be little Baby Boo mix. I planted so many types I'm not sure what I'll get. I'm super happy to have any I hope the critters don't eat all of them. Have a great day everyone! We're getting big storms today!

I got this Owl cookie jar years ago at a yard sale for $5.00. I think I did good not a flaw or crack on her. I love owls I'm working on one now. Mine will have a couple pumpkin buckets and a witch hat. I'll post her when I'm closer to being done.

Here's a new Spooky Tree with hanging ghosts and a black cat. I want to thank everyone for being so supportive! I've got too much on my plate to worry about the ebay situation. I'm hoping with time it will work out! So I'm off to finish my tree! Have a great week everyone!

This set is now in my Etsy Shop. The acorns caps are real.
I found some interesting folklore on the acorns. They were used as a divination tool on Halloween night. Lovers would take 2 acorns and each would place 1 in the same bowl of water. If they floated together they would marry. If they floated apart they would not and if they sunk death! Mine are not ment for this game but I thought the folklore was fun!

This guys started off as a carrot with a tiny bunny inside. I can't find the bunny so now he has a new life as Crazy Candy Corn ornament. Not sure what I'm going to do with him yet for now he's hanging out on my Spooky Tree.
