It is officially Autumn! We have been to the local apple orchard and to a “fall” art festival and now I have to start decorating for Halloween. It is my favorite holiday to decorate for so I am going to take a few days and get this doing. I am not sure whether there will be a Halloween Blog Party this year or not but I may have my own no matter what.
I just finished painting a new cake stand. I really like painting these cake stands! I do a couple a year and have a great time doing it. This one has a crescent moon and an owl on the top. Underneath are some bats flying around. The base has more bats too!
If you are interested, check it out in our Etsy store.
I am currently working on an new Bat Wing Clock. This one I am painting with a slightly different theme. It is turning out pretty neat and I will post it as soon as I get it finished, so come back soon to check it out.
I just finished a new Bat Wing Mantel Clock. This style of clock is a favorite of mine. Brandon hand carves the wings and attaches to the clock for me. It makes for quite an impressive mantel clock. This one I painted with orange and black with gold trim. The front of the clock has a flock of bats flying. The clock face has a crescent moon painted on it with a witch on her broom flying by. The top of the clock has a haunted scene of a spooky house behind a gate. There are a few gravestones on the grounds and bats flying about and hanging about.
I listed this clock on Etsy, if you are interested go check it out!
I have a new blog. My new blog is MelissaEtto.com and it is up and running. All of this blog’s content can be found there too. Stop by and see what’s new!
My favorite holiday is coming and I had a few things that were sitting around here that I wanted to get painted for Halloween. First I painted a wood bowl. I base coated the bowl in a antique white and gave it a distressed chippy look and I painted a vintage style Black Cat. Heed the warning! I know our two black cats we have are quite spunky and full of personality!
The bowl is currently listed on Etsy .
I also painted another clock. This one I painted to look like some spooky books….
Theses books would make for some spooky reading. The bottom book is a drawer and makes a nice hiding space for your potion ingredients or other valuables. The spooky Book Clock is listed on Ebay.
The third item I painted was a wood cake stand. I painted it in a vintage Halloween theme with the crescent moon and a witch flying by. The bottom has bats and stars and the base also has bats and stars and also a flying owl.
The Halloween Cake Stand is also listed on Ebay.
I am working on a few more items I hope to have finished in a couple days.
