I used a Terrye French design to paint on this long, narrow bread board. I love everything about this guy from his blue button eyes to the little hoot owl nesting in the brim of his hat.
The bottom of a vintage cafe coffee pot has been transformed into a pumpkin house with a few strokes of my paintbrushes. It came to me without a lid so I made a witch's hat from a papier mache cone and wood. I think it adds a bit of whimsy to this piece.
I have had a pattern for a kitty cat doll and her baby for a long, long time so I decided that now would be a good time to make her and dress her up for trick-or-treating. She wears a witch's hat, also made from papier mache and wood, and carries a pumpkin bucket that I made from a little gourd. Her doll is going to accompany her on her Hallow's Eve jaunt.
Finally, here is a vintage ice cream scoop that I have paint with a jolly jack theme. He is wearing his mask and is ready to say "boo" to whoever comes his way!
