                         The National Halloween Convention 
                 I found this un published draft from 2011 and I decided to post it! Sweet Memories.
  Three weeks before here I was working away with some barbed wire I found and harvested....

    I spent untold hours doing this,....sanding,..sanding,..and more sanding,...

The spring sun was delicious to sit out and work in!
I use a dremmel to do the carving,...

Here is a table full of Warty Jacks all awaiting paint!

Here is a moon,...one for one of a pair of matching lamps. I actually used plaster and cheesecloth on the first layers for these lamps and the insides are smooth and white!

Here is a Craggy Toothed Jack in progress,..

A cat lamp,..sold every one,..and a huge devil in the background,..

side view of the cat,..

And finally,..some pics taken from the convention itself,..after the ten hour drive up to Philadelphia! My sister and I trucked up there with a U Haul trailer behind us full of treasures!
I only snapped pics with my cell,..so not the best the quality.
Here are Wendy Smith Leaumont and LuLu Kellogg!

Death and I had a great time catching up!

I love this shot of Miss Wendy in our beautifully staged and decorated "living room".

Below are some detailed pieces by Doreen Gay Castle,..(who also came to the show! I just loved meeting her!) and Jorge De Rojas of HoHo Halloween,...

Looking up at the top of the hearse on the other side,...

My Bling Bling Kitty Lamp,...wish I had gotten a better photo!
He is gone now!

The vintage hearse we had was chock full of art!

A view looking in our main booth,..

inside the hearse sits more art,..

Coming around the corner,..there we are!!

My largest sized Warty Jack and Devil Lamp,..

One of a pair of Moon Lamps,...

Thanks to Dani Nelson for getting us another great show here!

Some pics from the studio 2014!

Putrid Green Warty Jack,..

My favorite, The Revolted Rabbit! He is so ready for Halloween,..I wish I had made more of these this year!
Moon lamp and two small lanterns that were featured in The Sundae Gallery in Concord, N.C where I live and work,..
Large hand etched Ouija Board Mirror,..three beautiful assemblage pieces by my sister Dusti Harlan are also on top of that,......
