Some of my favorites left me over the weekend. (Well, we all know I tend to have a lot of favorites!) But there are certain ones that are just a little extra special to me. Like Trick-or-Troll, who will be joining three of my other Halloween spooks at his new home with Melissa. And Clarice the gypsy, who I will actually get to visit from time to time, because David's sister bought her!
Here are a few that found new homes that I hadn't shown you yet. I never allow any of my babies to leave home before they have had a photo shoot! I need to be able to remember all of these one-of-a-kind darlings!
Witchy Bones is all dressed up for a very fancy Halloween party. I love her dotted tulle skirt and the glittered pumpkin head wand. I thought for a long time about how to make a skeleton without having to make very delicate bones that would end up being very fragile. It suddenly occurred to me that I could dress them up and just make a skull and put marks in the hands and legs to give the illusion of bones. I used a wash of black paint over the white clay to bring out the details.
Mr. Bones Goes Haunting
It wouldn't be much fun to go to a party alone, so here is Witchy Bone's companion. I actually made Mr. Bones first, then thought it would be really cute to make a female version of a skeleton to go with him. Mr. Bones is wearing a fancy black suit trimmed with glitter and Swarovski crystals. He is carrying a jack-o-lantern and a Halloween greeting. A little spider charm is hanging on the edge.
I really love these two skellys and I know they have found a wonderful new home with Pat, who is an avid collector of my art.
My little jack-o-lantern guys were pretty popular. I don't have any left! Here is my very favorite of the group:
Punky and Spook
I thought this one ended up looking more like a girl. Maybe it was the purple eyes or the flowers on the hat. I think she is pretty adorable! I love her little ghost friend. It's made from clay and draped with cheesecloth tied with a bit of baker's twine. It is floating on a wire twisted to Punky's arm. I know she found a good home too.
While these three and many other found new homes over the weekend, I still have plenty of Halloween spooks available over in my etsy shop, A Piece of Lisa. Pfatt Marketplace will be updating in a couple days as well. I still have one piece left on the current offering, so hurry over there to check that out.
I try not to get too attached to my creations, but it's hard. But it also warms my heart to no end knowing that others love them enough to pay for them! I am so blessed to be able to have a job that I LOVE and to be able to bring a bit of whimsy into the lives of others.
Thanks to all my wonderful customers who welcomed A Piece of Lisa into their lives!!
