This little candy corn cutie is one of my favorites! I painted her on a canvas print that I found at the local thrift shop! The frame was already the right color so I didn't have to do a thing to it.
I painted over the print with acrylic paints and Miss Candy Corn Queen was born! She has real german glass glitter added to her crown and on her dress to make her sparkle in the moonlight!
I hope you have time to stop by and take a peek at her eBay auction before she ends on Friday June 6th at 9:00pm.

I just love the glitter covered pumpkin that sits on top.............
I know it's hard to see, but I painted a tiny little pumpkin face on the brass pendulum....
What fun it was painting the little hand painted glasses with the green eyes peering out at you...........
I had so much fun painting this little clock! It would make the perfect addition to your larger scale Halloween Doll house since it measures 8 1/2" tall. Or just set it on a shelf with your other favorite Halloween decorations.
CLICK HERE to see it on EBay!

Fred, Me and baby Morgan. Our first family picture taken at my mom and dad's house. (Notice I'm still wearing the loose dresses since there was no possible way to fit into anything but maternity clothes!)
Awwwwwwwww..........she was about the size of a cabbage patch doll which was the rage back then in 1984. She weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz. and was only 19 1/2 inches long. Our little real live dollbaby that we had waited a long 7 years to get and went through so much heartache along the way...........
It seems like it was just yesterday. Where does the time go? And now I'm watching her daughter (Jadyn) grow up way to fast. I realize that before I know it, she'll be grown too...........*sniff* *sniff*
Jadyn's 2nd Birthday pics.........

Joyce with her mural.........
Jadyn looking at the fish reading a book in the chilren's section mural........
Being her usual little ornery self! I love this pic.........LOL
Brenda and JoycEE strike a pose in front of the chilren's mural. It's pure magic!
JoycEE, Jadyn and I.........
What a magical place to read a book!
JoycEE and Jadyn.........=D When Jadyn first laid eyes on the first mural and I was pointing out all the things in the mural to her, she said, "WOW JoycEE! Good Job!" We giggled over that one. It was just too cute the way she said it!
We then left the library to eat lunch. After that was a stop at the new material shop in New Philadelphia, then off to Riverfront Antique Mall to look for vintage goodies. JoycEE used to work there and she guided Brenda, Jadyn and I to all the interesting booths! Antique mall rules are that all small children must be strapped into their strollers, so the whole time Jadyn was saying, "I want out. Help me.......JoycEE help me!" We giggled until we almost peed our pants! LOL
What a fun day! Next time, we're going to go visit Brenda and she's going to show us all the awesome places that she likes to shop at and of course a stop at Starbucks!!!!! I can't wait to go!
