Halloween is upon us..........................

Halloween is upon us! I am taking a few days away from my studio to enjoy the spirit of my favorite holiday. Prepping costumes, carving pumpkins and soaking in all the decor! This is "Miss Witchie Poo" she is one of my favorites and she is available at the Outsiders Art Gallery in Durham, NC. Just click the link on my sidebar to go to their site. Happy Halloween to all! Have a fun filled time of spooks, chills and thrills!

October Finds

The weather today was amazing and we knew the local Flea Market would be hopping. So we cruised over and enjoyed an afternoon of junking and hunting. Lots of great finds and I wanted to share a few of my favorites. Halloween is days away................. yippeeee!

Lots of great findings in this box. Awesome stuff to add details to my dolls, doll hats and mixed media pieces.

Soooo UGLY, it was love at first site!

This leather suitcase is awesome! It's in great shape and a steal at ten bucks! I love to use suitcases for display at shows. My dolls really look great sitting in them and they double as a way to pack and get them there too. I plan to get to more shows in 2011. If anyone has suggestions of shows you think I might be a good fit for, please let me know. I fell in love with the wooden caddy too. Good piece of folk art with the handle fashioned out of a crochet mallet. I just love old stuff. It has so much character - I wish I knew the history behind some of what I find. Where it's been, how many lives it's interacted with, etc. Some stuff holds so much energy, oh the stories it could tell. Well, I'm off - happy hunting and haunting to all.

My Little Super Girl!

Apparently this "Super Girl" stuff is serious business. My little super girl says she can "leap tall bolts of fabric in a single bound! Unravel yards of ribbon and stringy things, and save mommy from the thread monsters!" This is my favorite time of year. Costumes and imaginations soar!
