Jack's Mad, Falling Leaves and an October Snowstorm

It's been ages and ages since listing on ebay, but I'm finally making my grand re-debut in the auction world with this pouting Jack-O Lantern make do 'Jack's Mad'. Prince Jack is loaded with attitude and will make a perfect centerpiece for a halloween collection or on the Halloween dinner party table!















It's difficult to see in the photos, but Jack has his pouting bottom lip stuck way out in defiance. He's paper mache and has frosty glass glitter on his nose and sprinkled about. He wears a very sturdy painted and glittered crown and a crepe paper bow at his collar. He's permanently attached to a vintage solid wood base that's been repainted and glittered as well.

You can find him here:

The leaves are starting to turn and flutter to the ground up in Lake Tahoe. And, yes, it's true, we just had our first snow storm of the year!! Nothing like October snowflakes and and fluttering crispy leaves to spark the mood for creating holiday art!


Our Australian Kelpie 'Gypsy' was beside herself with joy running and leaping about outdoors. Eventually, the cold brought her inside, where she promptly curled into a ball in her favorite spot to warm up.




...And here she was looking peeved at me for snapping photos of her while she was trying to warm up. could this be where the creative seed was planted for 'Jack's Mad'?? If she could, I'm sure she would have stuck her bottom lip out. Hmmm...could be.

Halloween and Vine show 2009

The Halloween and Vine show was a joy to attend as always! An hour before the show started there was line wrapping around the building of diehard fans anxiously waiting for the doors to open.

To all of my customers: A big giant thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. I'm committed to working my hardest to bring you top quality work.

Many of you requested lamps, so I will be focusing on creating many more eye-popping illuminations for 2010. Please stay tuned for more information.
