Poison Bottles & Canvas

Good evening everyone! Yes,  I'm still creating Halloween stuff :).  I took 3 bottles that I bought for a quarter a piece at Hobby Lobby.  I used stuff from my stash and I  played around with my soldering iron.  I just love creating stuff with canvas.  I sprayed the metal numbers with alcohol inks and glued them to pattern paper.  Something different.  For the last canvas, I think it's fun to think that this family is descendants from one of the first families of Salem, MA.  I love old pictures and cabinet cards.  When my sister and I are at an antique shop and we come across old photos, we make up are own stories about them.  Have a great night ladies!

Chandelier, Scarecrow, & Pumpkins

Good evening everyone!  I bought this chandelier last year and I finally got around to doing something about it.  I  just dry brushed some black paint on the chandelier and the fake tapers.  I love how it turned out!  I'm normally not a fan of store bought scarecrows, but I kind of liked the one I found for $6.99 at Ace Hardware.  The hanging pumpkin plaque I found at Sid's Garden Center in Bolingbrook, IL.  Have a great night all!

Yard Decorating

Happy Friday everyone!  Last week I worked on the front yard Halloween decorations.  I loved how it all turned out!  I have a few more ideas running in my head that involve a chandelier, pumpkins, and lanterns.  I know, I'm a certifiable Halloween freak!
