Things That Go Bump In The Night

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone! We are enjoying fall like weather here today, and it is glorious after the awful ongoing heat of the summer. So what is everyone doing on this last holiday of summer? We are going to a family gathering later on this afternoon, but before we go I wanted to share a couple things that I have been working on for our "Halloween Celebration" on my Etsy Team. We will be launching almost a hundred new Halloween items, tomorrow September 6th, so I hope you get a moment to come and shop! Simply go to Etsy, type in HCOFG and it will bring up some wonderful Halloween creations, made by some fabulous artisians. We will be adding items all day today, so be sure to check back for the latest listings

The photo above is one of the items that I will be featuring for the Celebration. This is a Terrye French design, and was so much fun to paint. I just fell in love with its whimsical style. After painting, it was sprinkled with Glamour Dust, giving it a beautiful shimmer to bounce of the spooky lights of Halloween.

I found this authentic cigar box at a tag sale this summer. It is the perfect size to hold all those Hallween treats in your home, or office. The design is by Sandy Hollman, and it also has been liberally sprinkled with Glamour Dust.

This is a new design from Painting With Friends. The designer is Terrye French, and it was painted by Marie Provost. I chose to paint this on an 8x10 canvas and display it with an art easel, but because it is staple free, it can easily be hung on your wall with no frame needed. It would also be so cute nestled into any Halloween gathering. Don't you love the pumpkin head ghost??? Too cute!

Last but not least, I had to paint a new soap! This bar of soap is painted with a Renee Mullin design, and would be so cute as a special little gift for those grandchildren, nieces or nephews.

These creations have been so much fun to work on, and I hope you get a moment to check out the other fabulous works of art from The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team over the long Holiday Weekend!

Holiday Blessings to Each and Everyone!
