Samples from Bethany Lowe & Halloween

Had a surprise from the UPS man last week! Boxes and BIG too! OMG! 4 giant boxes ..One of the perks as a Artist ,working for a company is you 'receive samples' of all the pieces the company reproduces .. Very pleased with everything!! Happy! Happy!

Got so inspired Started to unpack my Halloween decorations and started decorating..My favorite faux poppies..


My kitchen Halloween repros on the window sill.






Unwrapping the goodies, Wow! impressively wrapped! Everything is like a fat mummy! Since everything has traveled a long way wrapped up ..you need to fluffy up their crepe paper collars to look nice..no big deal, but a nice little thing to do..



Made a vingette of some of my work, and Calamity Kim's Art Dolls from the 'Art Doll Hat Swap' 'http://wwwcalamitykim.typepad.com/ just love them!






A closer look..The winking moon is a original piece , the 'Cat on the Ball' and the 'Cat & the Pumpkin' are from 'Acorn Cottage'.. Again I have to say, the repro pieces look great! I am very happy with.. I fluffed up their paper collars and made a paper hat for veggie rider.!





Another picture of the grouping.. Now I need to get my Halloween tree up..I feel cooler weather coming and in the mood to decorate!







A little decorating has stated..A 'Paul Gordon Crazy Quilt Horn', and a wool bunny made by me.. old Purple transferware plate..








My fat cats relaxing in the sunny kitchen.. Baby Girl is so silly and full of mischief, Rufus is a big ol' loveball..

Debra, I've been trying to send you e-mails asking for your address as well as giving you mine. Not sure if you're getting them. Your Halloween collection is amazing. Everything looks fabulous.

Thanks for your comment. I like when you stop by and tell me your thoughts.
Wow! I just am in awe of your house. I would feel right at home with all the fun things to look at. I hate minimalism!! teehee

I am NOT in the swap. Maybe someday I will jump in and join a swap. I don't want to make someone wait for me if I don't make the deadline. So for now I am just an observer in the back shadows.
I am planning to see you in Northville!!!

That is so nice of them to give you samples. I hope I can be so successful one day. How did you learn to work with the paper mache. I would love to learn how but don't know if I should take a class or read any certain books. I can't wait for the swap you are doing. What is the website for Bethany Lowe & Halloween. You keep up the good work. Your cats are so adorable. I have a cat named Cleo. She is so spoiled.
Many Blessings,
Kelli Lusk

That's a wonderful Fabulous Perk!!!! WOW!!!! I am loving your Halloween setup! I got a call from the party hat dolls and they said they are so happy to be hanging with all your witches and goblins and they have made lots of new friends with those Anthropomorphic guys! They are lovely there! (Thank you for the plug!) I am going to sign up for your swap!!! Yeehaw!
