This little clock has a secret compartment in the top that will have a hidden treasure that will be yours to keep. When it is your turn to Give It Forward, you may keep the little treasure and replace it with something of yours.

The bottom of the clock also opens to reveal another compartment in which there is a scroll that Terrye signed and now it is my turn to sign the scroll before I Give It Forward.

You have from now until 12:00 midnight PDT to leave a comment here for me about your favorite thing about Halloween or a Halloween memory of yours.

Good Luck Everyone! Tell your friends to hurry and sign up and if you are a lucky little ghost or year will be your turn to give this Halloween clock forward!

So Excited to be in the Fall Issue of PRIMS!

I was lucky enough to have two submissions published in the current issue of PRIMS magazine along with my article on the Penny Feather Tree! Which also got a mention of the front cover...A Tribute to Penny McAllister. Penny would be so proud! We all miss her so much!

I hope you'll have time to stop by your local book store and pick up a copy! Or you can simply click on the picture of the front cover to order your copy today! :)

I will be listing the two pieces of mine that were featured in the gallery section on eBay as soon as they return from California next week. Oh how I have missed them!

I am especially proud of my little hang tag/ornie that is published in there. She is so detailed and I think she is one of my best to date! Her picture here just doesn't do her justice.

And the little chunky canvas painting that I submitted was actually for our EHAG Black & White Fright Night Challenge. Instead of listing her....I mailed her out along with my hang tag. And off to Laguna Hills, California and the Stampington & Company they went! My fingers and toes were crossed hoping and praying that they would make the cut and be accepted into this issue. Then several months later.....after my fingers and toes were all cramped up....I got the email saying that my submissions were going to be published along with the Penny Feather Tree story! YEEHAW!!!!

I promise that I'll be back to share their auction links when I have them both listed on ebay. Oh....and thank you for listening to me gloat......hehehe I'm a happy little Halloween camper right now! =D

Newest Piece of Vintage Palette Art....

Here's looking at you Pumpkin! ;o)

I knew when I saw this bowl come into the shoppe that I would have to transform it into a pumpkin candy dish! I had the perfect little knob to give it too! A real pumpkin stem that I had kept the past 2 or 3 years just waiting to be used! I think it fits perfectly...don't you?

I gave her that eggshell crackle finish that I love also!

And that double paper collar or ruff adds a nice touch also! ♥

She's listed on ebay right now and ends this coming Sunday evening at 9:45pm EDT-6:45pm PDT. I hope you will stop by to see her! You can CLICK HERE to do that! =D

Happy Halloween!

New Ebay Vintage Palette Auction.....

It seems like forever since I have had time to paint! I was so busy with the Fireworks Festival festivities that I haven't had time to make anything for months!

I found this little vintage wooden shoe last at a garage sale and just knew that I had to paint something Halloween on it!

I just love making OOAK Halloween art pieces that you wouldn't normally find anywhere else. The penny rug fingers were made using vintage papers, little tack nails, vintage style paper trim and black glass glitter.

I hope you will stop by her Ebay Auction before she ends this coming Sunday evening July 18th at 9:00pm EST.
