Spooklyvania Art and More

Hello Everyone:

Been some time since I posted on my blog and just had to come and say "HI".

The weather is FINALLY breaking and hopes run deep of Spring.
I've finally seen flowers blooming and robins.

Last week was incredible with highs in the mid 80's but this weekend we see spits of snow flying again. Oh well this shall soon pass. (I hope LOL)

I wanted to also say THANK YOU to all you wonderful people who support my art. Don't know what I would do without everyone. Your kindness and care toward me has been wonderful.

I do want to point out that in almost every case, my art work is ORIGINAL and even if I do get inspired by old post cards and old Halloween decorations, I don't copy them like allot of artist do, but change them and make them my own.

Anyway, I just wanted to share with everyone some of the neat items I have up for auction. A WONDERFUL Pendulum Wall clock, lamp, gourd and some ACEO'S all at great LOW starting prices too.

You can view them at:

The Halloween Pendulum wall clock is a must for any collector as well as a great piece to have up all year long. Even has chimes...

The lamp up for auction is all metal and a repaint of an old 40-50's style lamp from days gone by. I divided the shade into sections and placed a cute original details design in each section. A must see piece.

Don't forget the Halloween Gourd call "Familiar" it depicts a Witch with her black cat on one side and a field of pumpkins on the back. Sure to please any decor.

Must go and paint, paint, paint.
Take care now and have a great day

Hello Everyone:

Can't Believe October is here, Halloween is right around the corner, the most spookiest time of the year. I LOVE IT.

Today I made a fresh pot of Ginger Snap Tea. The smell throughout my home was incredible.

Cool night have come and we had our first frost a few days ago. Leafs are turning color so quickly and the colors are majestic and show natures majesty.

I take my camera out where ever I go to keep logs of the brilliance of nature and get ideas for new art pieces.

Anyway, be sure to look at my auctions at a regular base as I will have tons of Halloween items available continuously, with many Christmas items as well.

I just want to say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to Everyone!

It's time to look at life with a new light and love.

If I remember one thing that I have learned in these many, many years I have been alive is to strive for forgiveness, kindness and respect.

So many people are SO quick to judge others yet never take the time to listen and have an open heart.

With Mother's Day upon us let's keep these words in mind.

I remember an old saying that was shared with me many, many years ago. It is still fresh to my heart even today.


Most people judges others for things they do themselves, yet can't see this.
Could this be why they judge in the first place?

Why are we so quick to judge others, what is it in us that makes this so?

Life is tough and EVERYONE struggles, yet no one is perfect and EVERYONE should be given a second chance.

"Ye without sin, cast the first stone"

As someone said to me "The Universe see everything" shouldn't we strive to be better people,
or end up worse then the ones we judge because we should know better in the first place.
