Hello there my long lost friends. :)
Well I'm not super duper late for Halloween decorating am I? I'm sure there are a few people out there that are hoping to still decorate. Well tonight I finally did it! We brought my green cupboard in from the garage yesterday (more to follow on that soon), and I had fun loading the top of it with Halloween things!
The needle felted skeleton girl is by artist Kerry Howard Schmidt. All her work is so much fun, but her Halloween pieces really are the best! And the "It's Gonna Get Cold" picture is an original vintage Texaco ad that I found at an antique store for $4. The Fire King black polka dots bowl was also $4 at Goodwill. Vintage Gurley witch and pumpkin candles.
Vintage Gurley Ghost (did you know that Martha Stewart now owns the Gurley label?) and a darling Putz House turned scary by the talented Kim K!
Another Kim K. creation (shadow box lower left), Skelly Pops made by me, and a vintage Empire Blow Mold Pumpkin Guy.
I found the fabulous vintage Biestle jointed Pumpkin Man at the thrift store for .50! I was thrilled that day because I had stupidly sold my other one (that I had found at an Estate Sale) on EBay. I'll never let this one go! My BFF Mandy from high school gave me the darling smiling pumpkin in the front. I just love him! And I love her too! :)
I can't remember if I posted about her last year or not. I'm sorry if I did! But she's really the STAR of this show. This is "Hillie Lou" made by artist Jennifer Murphy. She's a jointed, black mohair, artisan Halloween Cat. Her eyes are glass, and she wears the sweetest dress made of vintage fabrics.
I waited years and years to own one of Jennifer's pieces! I just love her! The cat...not Jennifer. ;)
So here's all the crazy Halloween fun! I'm trying to keep it just to this area and not spread it through the house. Though, there are things that I keep picturing that weren't in the boxes...which means there are other boxes!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh!
Here's what I did with that $6 box of bittersweet that I found at the estate sale a few weeks ago.
