Halloween Give It Forward Clock

 Last year I was the very fortunate recipient of this gorgeous clock, hand painted by Terrye French of The Painted Pear Basket. I was given the opportunity to keep this delightful clock through a Give It Forward event hosted by Lori Davis of Vintage Palette Art, an accomplished folk artist in her own right. I recommend you visit both Terrye's and Lori's blogs for some delicious eye candy, and perhaps a treat to bring home.
Now it's time for me to host a Give It Forward event, so that some lucky someone can win the opportunity to have this in their home for a year. Leave me a comment on this post, sharing your favorite thing about Halloween, or a favorite memory. Be sure to leave a way to contact you if you are the lucky winner. You have until midnight on Halloween night to get your comment in. Tell your friends to hurry on over for a chance as well.
Then I will place all names in a hat to be drawn out the following day. I will contact you and get your mailing information and get this in the mail. Inside the clock you will find a scroll with my name added to the other artists listed, and somewhere in the clock is a secret compartment with a hand crafted "treat" for you from me. Good luck to you all, and happy Halloween!

I would be very honored to have this in my home for a year. I have many of Terrye's creations sitting out in my house that I just adore from many years ago. I loved doing Halloween with my daughter, selling tickets for the Halloween Carnival at school, making her costume, helping her with her cake for the cake walk, and going to her school and watching the costume parade and contest. Then that night was the Carnival. So many great memories......dellerd@msn.com

I love this clock. I have been following Terrye for a long time. I also have purchased many patterns from her. I love to paint. My children have grown now and I miss making their costumes and the happy faces they had for trick or treating.Now I get to see the happy faces of the children when they come to the door. Hugs, Mary
