I had so much fun with the red boot I did a few posts back, I ordered more forms and made some more.

My sister-in-law bought this one for a friend. The brooch encases a dancing couple.

And my sister-in-law bought this one for herself. Thanks, Kavi!!

Trying to figure out what my next two boots are going to look like. Maybe some chalkware parrot salt and pepper shakers???

Happy Halloween a Little Early

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I don't dress up before I go to work and I don't live in a place where I get hoards of trick or treaters, but I love to decorate my house with fun and slightly creepy adornments. Hairy rats, witches hands, and my friend, Cynthia, thought my chalk kewpies were for Halloween but they aren't; those are out all year.

I just made a chalkboard that's slightly reminiscent of Halloween. This fab knarly doll head is perfect!

This one isn't so Halloween-y, but kinda fun with the purple and black accents.

And a couple of custom switch plates heading out to California.

Bathroom Art

Make room in the bathroom for some art - these switch plates feature vintage aluminum soap boxes.

A Cornucopia of Mosaic Chalkboards

Got up at 4:00 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep so I tuned to my Stan Getz station on Pandora and knocked out another chalkboard.

Had this cherry cornucopia vase for a long time. Sometimes it takes awhile to find the right spot. It makes a great chalk holder!

I love old perfume bottles and would never think of draining them - they look so fun as-is!

I Heart Mosaic Chalkboards

I took a much needed day off today and knocked out some chalkboards.

I've had this clown forever and he finally made it into this board as a chalk holder.

Cute lil' rusty tin cup.

These are heading to Frank, a great little shop in Los Gatos, California.
