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!

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.

Halloween Cake Stand

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.

Happy New Year!

amarylisHappy New Year!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday season.  We have had a really nice holiday season this year.  Brandon has been on vacation and we have just been hanging out at home and doing some visiting too.

Everyone had a really nice Christmas.  Just look at what my sister and brother-in-law sent for me!

I just love it!  It looks perfect by our castle.

Now it is on to the new year.  I listed Brandon’s newest masterpiece, the Seahorse figural nutcracker, on Ebay today.

I was happy to have family and friends see it completed.  Everyone loves it, so do I.  It is truly beautiful.

Some Early Christmas Gifts

We have been celebrating Christmas for a while here.  While we were on vacation this year Brandon bought me a couple Christmas gifts that we’ve been enjoying ever since.

We saw this castle in only one gift shop in the Magic Kingdom and knew if we didn’t buy it we’d never see it again.

We also bought a Haunted Mansion……

I know it’s not very Christmas like but we love it!!!!

I have a few Dept. 56 Snow Village buildings but haven’t bought any new ones in a few years.  I am totally thrilled with our Disney purchases!

Did you notice the Seahorse!  It is a nutcracker that Brandon designed and carved.  Isn’t it beautiful!

Well, off to bake some cookies!

Husband’s Newest Nutcracker

Brandon, my hubby, has been very busy.  He carved another Skull Nutcracker for the Halloween Season and it is now listed on Ebay.  It is the forth one he has done and they are one of my favorites.  His work is exceptional  and you can go over to his blog or our website to see his incredible works.

It’s almost the big day, and we are looking forward to having some trick or treat fun!  Maybe we’ll rent some scary movies this weekend to get in the spirit….

Our son has not decided on a costume yet and I am sure that we (or I)  will be putting it together this weekend and upcoming week!
