Haunted Treasures

Just a little preview.....


This is probably one of the most labor intensive pieces I've ever done (and one of the most difficult to part with) but it was sooooooooooo much fun to create!



An ornament chest and Halloween board game all rolled into one - complete with Halloween dice and four hand sculpted game pieces which will be shown with the eBay listing, probably sometime tomorrow evening.



I had great fun writing the verse and all the little spaces:

"A black cat crosses your path, move ahead two spaces"....

"Waylaid by goblins, move back one space"....

"Shortcut - follow the raven".....

and so on.....

I SO love this job, hehe. ;)

The listing should begin tomorrow evening with a fairly high reserve, and if it doesn't reach the reserve, will go with me to the Ghoultide Gathering show in October. In the meantime, if anyone is interested, fire me off an email. :)

Thanks much, all. It's been a couple of years since I've painted a game (Halloween checkers last time I think) and I'd forgotten how much fun they were. :) I'm itching to do one with faeries next, hehe....

This is one of the coolest items that you have painted. Now for a fun game to go with it....Halloweenopoly??? Maybe "All hallows risk", or... well the possibilities are endless. Susan
