Autumn and a New Cake Stand

 

 

 

 

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!   Hand Painted Halloween Cake Stand

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.

A New Bat Wing Clock

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.

New Halloween Items

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!

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.
