Jadyn & Mr. Pumpkin Head Scarecrow.........

I saw this pumpkin display in a friend's yard one day and I thought...what a perfect place to take a picture!

So, the other day I said to Jadyn.....come on! We're going to go take your picture with a scarecrow! Well, of course she said SURE....because she heard the word picture! The girl just loves to get her picture taken! She definitely does NOT get that from her Nana!

SO off we went!

After after having to practically force her behind those gorgeous mums.....I wondered why she was a bit hesitant.

And then her little voice said...."I'm scared." Awwwwwww!! I said it's ok....he won't hurt you.

Well you can tell that passed rather quickly as soon as I said, "Say Pumpkin Seeds!"

Just look at that big pumpkin cheesecake grin on her face! hahaha!

Happy Fall Y'All!!!!!!!!!

Haunted Houses & Vintage Halloween Costumes.......

Wish I had one that looked like these ones! I wonder how many little Trick or Treaters would be brave enough to come up and ring the doorbell?

Wish I had this costume to wear! You know what I never noticed until now? Her headpiece is an upside down bat! They just don't make kids costumes like this anymore!

Aren't they adorable? Can you just imagine their excitement for Trick or Treat back during the Depression?

And this is my all time favorite little girl! I know she isn't dressed up...but her victorian era clothing and that Jack O'Lantern with the candle in his mouth just melt my heart!

A pic of the most amazing spider web windows from the spookiest house I have ever been in! The Winchester Mystery House..........I would absolutely LOVE to be there to take a tour on Halloween night! If you are ever in San Jose, absolutely must take the tour!

Trick or Treat my little dearies!!! CACKLE!!!

Trick or Treat....Paint My Face........

Doesn't take mch to make a little 3 1/2 year old happy! I think she's grinning from ear to ear just like the little JOL I painted on her face! Not much time for details when you're painting on a She wasn't very happy when I washed it off while she was getting her bath though. Looks like I'll have to paint another one on her for Halloween night!

Happy Halloween!

An Amazing Halloween Celebration!

Stop by Vanessa of A Fancyful Twist's blog for one amazing Halloween Party!

I wish I would have had time to participate but these past two weeks have been quite hectic here with the trip to Northville, MI for Ghoultide Gathering, a show and the redecorating of the shoppe. Hope to make it next year!

Pandora Pumpkin Painting........

I've listed this little cutie in my ETSY shop. I wish I could get my camera to not make her appear so bright because she actually isn't. Believe me when I say that my pics do not do her justice. =D

Here's HER LINK.

Hope you have time to stop by and take a peek at her. She would love to grace your wall this Halloween season, but she's really to pretty to be put away when Halloween is over. SO I would leave her out all year round! ;o)

~~~Ghoultide Gathering........the most amazing Halloween Show~~~

This past Saturday I attended the most magical Halloween Show in Michigan! I don't know how many of you have heard of Ghoultide Gathering but it's one of the top rated Halloween shows in the nation. The list of Halloween artists doing the show was simply enough to make your jaw drop and the art just made you drool!

If you are a lover of all things MUST mark your calendar for this time next year. Believe me when I tell you that you DO NOT want to miss it!

Below are some of the pics that I took while there. No pictures are allowed to be taken inside the show, so all of these were taken outside, at the hotel where we stayed and during our dinner Friday night with some of the artists, collectors and friends of ours.

Here's Joyce's newest eBay doll Maria who just insisted that she go along for the ride....and how could we say NO to her when she's wielding that big rusty meat cleaver around????

And she also came bearing gifts!

Friday night we had the best time eating out at Macaroni Grill with fellow EHAG and PFATT artist friends and new friends Dani from Spooky Time Jingles & Halloween collector and artist Hugh Luck. Joycee and Hugh drew little Halloween doodles on the paper tablecloth with crayons, then exchanged their artwork! What fun!

Scott's amazing pumpkin head scarecrows greet the visitors as they came through the tents at the entrance to Mill Race Village where Ghoultide Gathering was held.....

The crowds didn't let the rain dampen their spirits as they waited patiently in line for the doors to open........

I've waited for the chance to see these guys for the past 2 years now! Don't you just LOVE them!!

Two of the gorgeous floral arrangements that graced the tables as you entered the Cady Inn.......

The Blacksmith shop at Mill Race Village....

Joycee and Hugh strike a pose with one of the Big Guys! Watch out Joycee! I think he heard you say how much you love roasted pumpkin seeds......*giggle*

And last but certainly not least....Joyce and I asked Scott if he would mind stepping outside to have a picture taken with each of us. Don't you just love his victorian outfit? Part of the charm of this show is that most of the artists dressed up for the occasion in Halloween outfits. =D

Scott and I.....and what a sweetheart he is too! He also signed our copies of Art Doll Quarterly's Fall Issue of which he and Joyce were both featured in! Thank you so much Scott for putting on such a delightful show and giving us this chance to meet so many wonderful Halloween artists in one place. We had the best time ever and plan on making this an annual tradition!

Oh and here is a pic of my ID badges (made by my friend Becky Hart of Hart Photography) especially for the show so we could be easily picked out in the crowd..........

And here are my two purchases from the show. I wish I could have afforded to buy more but this gives me a good excuse to go back next year....right? ;o)
