                         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!
