Countdown - 30 Days Until Halloween & Vine

Yes, the countdown has begun. A mere 30 days separates us from the 2009 Halloween & Vine Show. If you are a Halloween folk art fan and live anywhere within driving distance of Petaluma, California, this is a MUST SEE event.

25 Top notch artists from around the country gather for a few hours in the quaint, historic Hermann Sons Hall to offer their original Halloween art for sale.
At this moment, We, the participating artists, are squirreled away in our studios preparing our offerings for the show. We are delaying returning emails and phone calls, putting off chores and plans, disappearing from Facebook and Twitter pages, becoming sporadic in our blog posts, etc. so that we can bring you our most creative works of the year.
If you are planning to or are interested in attending, you can find all the information on the Halloween & Vine website.
See you there!

Imagine Finding a Very Old...

Imagine finding an old miniature toy steamer chest that's been around for nearly a hundred years. It's well worn, but beautiful in its own way. You wonder who the child was that played with it so long ago, and what their life turned out to be.
After unlatching and opening the chest, you almost laugh out loud at the old and comical Halloween figure staring back at you with a surprised expression on its face. What a find! You'll display it in a special place and admire it every year, sometimes wishing it would tell some of the stories it silently keeps.
