Halloween Bunnies and Bottle Brush Trees

We've been very busy this weekend putting out fresh Halloween goodies.  Among our new arrivals are some darling Halloween bunny witches created by artisan Michelle Lauritsen, whose Pinch of Prim creations have been featured in Prims magazine. 
Each bunny is a work of art, sculpted and painted by Michelle.  We think that they look fabulous with our vintage new-old-stock Halloween bottle brush trees.  These are marked Japan on the bottom and come from the 1940s.  The trees each measure 6 inches tall. 
The bunny witch in the black dress has her own mini bottle brush tree which is covered in black glitter.  The bunny witch in the orange dress is holding a candy corn on a wire.
This sweet black bunny witch has a lovely white and black polka dotted dress.  She also has her own little bottle brush tree.  It is covered in orange glitter.
Both of these cuties are wearing polka dotted dresses.  The one on the left is carrying a caramel apple.  The one on the right has her own tiny orange glittered bottle brush tree.
Here they are as a group.   (The black crows are from another new to the shop artisan Jan Dahler.)

Halloween Ornaments

Halloween ornaments are great for decorating, especially if you have a small space.  You can decorate a Halloween tree (which is becoming quite popular.) You can also hang them from twine, ribbon or grapevine to make a garland.  You can even tuck them in among your other decorations. 

I will try to share some decorating ideas with you in a later post.  For now, I am going to share some of our Halloween ornaments (handmade by artisans) that we've gotten in at the shop!

We have vintage-inspired chenille ornaments in a variety of styles.

These ornaments are reproduced from vintage ephemera and cut and glittered by hand.  They are double-sided to boot!

These tags are hand stained and feature fun vintage and shabby designs.  Many are embellished with ribbons and other accents.

Halloween: Abby Belle by Sam

Sam, of Abby Belle, is the artist behind these wonderful paper clay creations. We thought they were perfect for tucking in old Coke crates! We have already sold some of her Halloween creations so if you see something you like, don't wait!

This picture is a little can see some of the details better without the sun isn't shining right in on them!

Halloween is Coming!

Hard to believe though it is, Fall is knocking on the door and Halloween is right around the corner!  We thought we would go ahead and give you a little look-see at some of our Artisan creations that we have available for purchase in the shop. 

Today we wanted to showcase some of artist Toni Kelly's whimsical and sassy dolls.  Each doll or pixie is one of a kind.   Her signature faces are amazing!  We are happy to offer a selection of pumpkin men, witches, skeletons and a couple of saucy vampires too!
