HALLOWEEN MORNING!!!
It's Halloween! I took a few pictures from around the house today...more to follow later as Halloween Night approaches! I have three very excited revellers awaiting costumery...Ellie is a witch, Cassie, a corpse bride, Danny, a little vampire, myself, a witch, and I am turning Jim into a devil! I have sculpted a set of horns to go on his head and am making him a cape and a pitchfork....more pics to follow later! We are also carving jack o lanterns out of pumpkins, finishing some of my moons, and making Halloween cookies!! Friends and family are coming over tonight and Jim is making chili!!

My Halloween table....I brought out my owl collection...



Front porch with pumpkins awaiting transformation...



My skeleton posts sentinel hanging from the front door...you can see the gloom and fog!! Lets hope the rain holds off!!

I love these traditional Halloween icons...REAL scary witches, skeletons, pumpkins, jack o lanterns, leaf litters, cats and bats....

Here is a peek into my cabinet in the studio...where its Halloween and witchy year round...it holds paint and glitter inspiring images and little snips of this and that...glue and string and scissors and ornaments, gold leaf and sizing and light bulbs and trim...miniature lamps await moon tops...small half finished moon ornaments...candles and real tiny skulls...feathers and found objects galore!!



Small books and cards on tarot and Halloween...








A half finished wall hanging moon commission int the works...I didn't like the looks of him so added some more sculpting and will sand and re-paint soon...

Cats awaiting paint and sticks or hangers...

Some of Danny's little Halloween playthings...a wind up Frankenstein and his, as he calls them, "Sharp Teeth"...
One of my favorite thrift store finds, this Lon Chaney looking thing moves and lights up...the little skeleton figure by his side is also Danny's, he also dances lights up, and unfortunately, sings "Liven la vita loca" UGH!!!

One of my favorite all time witch marionettes. I want to make some like this, its on my "to-do" list!

Happy Halloween everyone and more pics later!! I'm off to paint devil horns, make a pitchfork, and carve up some moons...

What Fun!!! I especially like that glass skull...just too cool!! Have a wonderful evening and a safe one too. We'll be driving up the road to Las Cruces, NM to have dinner with my bro and his family....they get lots of tricker treaters there. OUr neighborhood has a bunch of ol' farts who don't participate, so the whole street is dark...no one comes here, so off to greener, spookier pastures!! LOL

xxoo,
Georgina

Happy Halloween, Brandi! Hope you all had a very Merry Halloween. Your photos make me feel like I'm in Poe's study (lol)! The owl collection is awesome! Hugs, Lisa
