OH Bats & Celebrate365 Magazine!...

I had the pleasure of sharing some of my Halloween collections here at home in Connie Porcher's Celebrate365 Magazine! You can see a fun collage within an article of Halloween goodness around my house in her Fall 2010 issue. It just came out! From my own collection of Halloween originals, I promised to auction off a very special Bat Candy Bowl that I am pictured with in this fun publication. So, you can meet "Sweet Billy" the bat bowl and see lots more photos of him on eBay as his auction just listed tonight. Both functional and fun, you can place him on display, and he will literally hug your sweets! Fill him with candies, and expect years of giggles and grins to come as each Halloween approaches. The winner of the auction receives both the Bat and a signed copy of Celebrate365!
CLICK HERE to see more, and many thanks for your kind bids of support :)

Cheers & Good Luck,

My Halloween in Country Sampler!...

Yes, it's true that Halloween is already making an appearance on the news stands, and fortunately, a sampling of my Halloween reproductions from Primitives by Kathy are featured! Keep an eye out for the current September issue of Country Sampler Magazine. On page 34, they feature the cozy fall-decorated home of decorator and shop keeper Christina Zimmerman of Buttermilk Junction. The photographer & photo stylist duo, Philip Clayton-Thompson and Donna Pizzi are friends of mine, and they composed the lovely pictures, graciously including some of my latest Halloween reproduction designs. And, it was an extra treat to see my name mentioned on the sidebar of the article, so thank you Country Sampler for that! You'll have to find yourself a copy of this fall issue. For now, here is a tease below, and to see additional photos from this article, visit Country Sampler's Inspiration Gallery where you will spot more photos of my Halloween folk art!.... ENJOY!
