Around The House and Treats

Fighting a bad bug here something I brought home from my trip..was in my head now my chest ..yuck.. so think I'll stir up a old witche's stew.. I hate to cook when I'm sick..and besides who wants to eat something a sick person made...ick.. not me!! A pie I made and sort sums up how I feel today..

Door decoration in the kitchen,a painted jol on a old cake pan and a cat face on a pie pan and faux garland from Hobby Lobby.

Well ,when I got my new issue of Celebrate 365

I had to buy the cat face print!

A sweet vintage kitty card for you..and my sweet old fatty Rufus in his basket..

Do you see a resemblance? That's Scott Smith's kitty and crow nodders..and yes, I keep moving things around on the shelf..

Now a little Show and Tell..

Kristen's wonderful wonderful ornaments, I call them art ornaments as they really are a small piece of art..[pssst..Kristen if your reading this.. I need 2 piemans, a whole pie head and a slice]..and she does best packaging
just too pretty to open .. but I did!

Vergie was my neighbor at the show and I finally was able to buy one of her kitties!

He's so forlorn looking , he needs a hug..

One of my most favorites..Jerry and Darla Arnold's batting ornaments..A must was this black bunny, he will be out year round and think he needs a sister!

Had to add to my veggie collection 2 tiny 'veggies and their buggie's and a handsome garlic.. I ordered a few other pieces so will be a delight to see them soon! Bought a pretty box just for Arnold ornaments..

The Acorn head by William is so cute and a nice go with Mr. Garlic..think he got a whiff of garlic..
and Turnip head was a wonderful treat from William ..Thanks much!!!

My son-in-law liked the 'Bone Babies' so the Baby Skelly's new home,is hanging on my tree!

and had to get these cute pumpkin heads and loved his 'big versions' tonight is Williams' blog sale so check it out ! Debbie was across from me and I wanted everything! but limited myself to this skelly on a pumpkin!

Well, was going to take more pictures.. but my camera battery died and left my charger at my daughter's house.. so had to buy a new one, should be here in a few days... till then here are few pictures around the house as late getting my decorations out. Retro Rudolph postcards framed, a French chalkware rabbit, old plastic pumpkin light, Pat Murphy's felted kittycat..

and in the kitchen window is a trio of slab glass Owls , I put lights in them and they look so neat when it's dark...

On top of the fridge along with the chocolate Rabbits I added Owls and candles..

Under a lamp is a collection of old and new pieces , I made the collage ornament that hangs on the light.

Most of my Celluloid Dolls are rather tiny, but this trio will be dressed up in some vintage crepe paper. They all had holes in their feet so... hmm.. had a idea.. put dowels in blocks and slide them on they stand on a good base to display..

This poor girl a Kestner, has been waiting to get her Halloween costume and a new wig, so will pull out the sewing machine before Halloween and get it done..maybe..

In the bedroom I keep all my vintage Papier mache and composition Dolls and small bisques..I literally have Dolls hanging on the walls ..which is really a nice way to display the long gowns.

This girl in her original paint and brown glass eyes [and really cute molded shoes] has a replacement brown human hair wig and long christening gown, wearing a 'Calamity Kim' hat for Halloween. The moon face hat is on another papier mache doll that I accidently bleeped off the page.. sorry she's a cutie.. another time will show her..

A big 25''Chalkware Kewpie type I repainted.

Another corner in the house with some Halloween touches..

Finally one of my latest addisions to my Doll family.. got 3 others but need to be cleaned up before they get a picture.. this poor girl also needs arms.. I added a replacement mohair wig ,when I was a toddler this was my hair color.. really!

Here was a special order done a couple weeks ago for Robert Brawley, 'Halloween Fanatic'.
Decided to do in Paper Clay rather than Papier Mache.

Twinkles his dog.. I was happy with the results and think he was too..was the first piece to be painted in the new line of acrylic paints I bought, Golden acrylics, they come in a jar, nice rich colors and bought them here ..
This is a peek at some of the work that I didn't finish in time for the I have another table with a pile of Dolls, guess those will be winter projects.. Ha!

Think alot of these big pieces will be saved for next year's Show..

I did up alot of Fairy Folk and veggies will post them on my Etsy when they are done..that's all for now..gotta go get me a cup hot tea and watch some Netflix and be a veggie..

Hi Debra,

I love all your goodies that you got at G. G. So fun! And the tour of your other collectibles was very nice, too.
I hope you feel better soon. We're watching Netflix, too!
