Ghoultide Goodies!

For those who couldn't make the show, I just listed a few pieces on eBay and Etsy last night.....

This one (a very large and vibrant treat box) got quite a bit of attention, but our table was just so packed there was no way to show it revolving (which I actually think is the coolest part of the piece!)


The last coaster set until next year....


"Double, double toil and trouble" treat bowl (Don't you just love Macbeth?!)


A nostalgic sort of trick-or-treat piece done in purples and blues. My favorite part is the little pirate pulling his friend in the wagon. :)

Busy, busy day ahead here in the studio - I'm working on two necklaces; one a commission and the other to be listed on eBay in the next couple of days. Oh - and there are two children's chairs I hope to list soon - the last this season. I'm not sure if they'll be on eBay, Etsy or here on the blog, but they're pretty cool if I do say so; one in purples, one in blues, and each with a small, three dimensional, bejeweled spider on the back. Stay tuned....

I'm also determined to do a little baking this afternoon. There's a bag of granny smith apples in the fridge ready to be made into a nice cinnamony (is that a word?) apple cake. Yummmmmmm.

And finally, I hope to catch up on a bit of long neglected correspondence, both cyber and snail mail. I always feel like such a deadbeat putting these things off, but this time of year, the work has to come first - one of the many joys of self employment, *sigh*....

Off to brew a pot of tea and put some tunes on. Just bought the latest Iron and Wine CD - soooooooooo good!! Hard to believe it will soon be time for Christmas music....

Until next time, wishing everyone a magical and creative weekend!!

Beautiful, beautiful things! I especially like your painted boxes - I've admired them from afar for ages, and finally thought I had to tell you! I guess one day I shall have to have a go at making my own, as the cost of shipping and customs to England is prohibitive, but for now I will keep looking at yours and dreaming!
