Favorite Halloween Movies - Giveaway

If you haven't seen this one, rent it this week! It's tradition for us to watch this every year just before Halloween.
Can you guess who the murderers are?
What's in the window seat boys?
The best tag line for this photo will win you a free Halloween ornament. No, it doesn't have to be from the movie. Be creative! I can't wait to see what you come up with. I will pick a winner on Sunday, or let Hubby do it, and send out your "treat" on Monday if I get your mailing address by then. Thanks for stopping by!

A Primitive Victorian Retro Vintage Christmas?

Christmas is the icing on the cake as we slowly slide into winter. We've put the gardens to bed, the harvest is lined up in gleaming rows of jars in the pantry or frosty bags of goodies in the freezer. We've shared a Thanksgiving feast with loved ones, celebrating the good things we've been blessed with this year. Now all the trimmings are up in the house, evoking a sense of warmth and childlike delight as we anticipate the gift giving season.

As an artist who has created Santa figures and ornaments for years, I have tried many styles, and love them all. My collection of decorations that I've either purchased or created spans the gamut of many styles, with the exception of western or northwoods, even though I haven't left that out on purpose. I do love the rustic woodsy style that's found in many a northern home, and I am toying with the idea of a western themed Santa or two for fun.

What is your style? Do you have a strict theme or color scheme, or are you more eclectic, gathering decorations or collectibles that catch your eye?

My original one of a kind hand sculpted ornament above can be found here:http://www.pfattmarketplace.com/mothersdreamartworks.html

Monday, Monday.....

Not so good to me at the start, with fussy twins, and an even fussier grandson. The creeping gumboo has been going around our town and everyone is not at their best. We are coming out the other side of this though, and things are looking up.
The twins are napping, such sweet little darlings! Grandson is home now, so grandma is listing items on ebay and etsy. Check out my links to see what's new, and what's ready to end. Hope you are having a wonderful Monday.

Blaaah...Blaaah....I want to.....

Okay.....we won't go there....but here are my latest ebay listings. This fiendish fellow was found hiding in my veggie patch. I captured him, and turned him into something useful. Be careful if you still have a garden to put to bed as Bunnicula is out to spread the fun.....
And lest we forget the upcoming Christmas season, which most of the stores are already putting up by now....sheesh.... I know it seems inconsistent doesn't it? But really now, I want to see Autumn decor in the stores until after Thanksgiving and then they can go Christmas crazy. As for creating Christmas stuff to sell? Well folks are buying so I'm selling! :-) both these pieces can be found by clicking on my ebay button to the left.

PFATT Unveiled!

Just a few of the offerings I have at PFATT this month. The cat candlestick/candy dish is a funky and fun creation.
My Man in the Moon mixed media art piece is a one of a kind original.
The snowman print comes with a hand painted frame.
My hubby's personal favorite is the gourdeous gourd fella above.
A gathering of Santas, 2 gourd ornaments and one driftwood fella, all can be bought together for a slight break, or purchased separately. These all make wonderful gifts so get your shopping done early! I've already sold the crock you will see on PFATT but the rest are available.

A sneaky peek at at least two of my gatherings for PFATT this month. There will be several Halloween pieces to choose from, 3 Santas and a gathering of snowmen that I am finishing up as I write....oh yes! I'm multitasking!
