Fun and Games!

It's what Halloween is all about, yes?

Oh, I know, some people think it's about horror and terror and all that, but personally, I like the whimsy of it all; the vibrant colors, the dressing up, the parties, the revelry...the magic and fun of it all!

It never fails to inspire...

Of course, sometimes I get a little carried away, working well into the night to finish a very special piece...

Losing all track of time, letting household chores fall by the wayside...

Living in my own little Halloween world until the minute I'm ready to share...

This Halloween checkers game has occupied my every waking moment this week, but I think it was worth it. ;) It's one of those pieces I'm sorely tempted to keep (can you just picture it holding all those Halloween magazines?!)...

I thought I'd share a little preview here, offering it for direct sale just until tomorrow, when I'll otherwise list it on eBay.

If you're interested, just email me for details - first come, of course. *UPDATE* - SOLD.

The rest of the holiday weekend will be spent finishing two commissions and beginning another table/bench - something very special for cat lovers!

In the meantime, I'm off to have a very late dinner and catch up on some reading. Wishing everyone here in the U.S. a relaxing holiday weekend...

Until next time,
♥ Carolee

Great pictures of excellent pieces! Just passing through, internet-wise, but wanted to say thanks for the visuals. At our house we are old fashioned, celebrating Samhain. No skeletons nor werewolves, no vampires, no evil witches. Just costumed children, running amok! It's the new year for us old celts. One of many thousands now. Happy new year to you, too. Rejoice in this beautiful world.
