It is already mid October and the Halloween folk art shows around the country have come and gone. But there is still time to get a one-of-a-kind piece to add to your Halloween display if you didn't get an opportunity to go.
Vintage-Style Spun Cotton Cat & Jack Now Available
I have created Jack the pumpkin man who thought he would try his hand at one of the Book of Night Spells. He accidentally super-sized the cat, which not only startled him, but also surprised the cat!
Both have bodies of spun cotton. Jack's head is sculpted paper clay. His clothes are hand made and dyed for a vintage look. All have been handmade and hand painted by me, including the tiny book of spells and pumpkin treat bucket. Jack and his cat are firmly adhered to a paper mâché hand-painted candy box. All measures almost 15" tall and about 10" wide.
I am offering it on my blog for $150, plus $6.95 shipping.

I have another piece available on eBay, just click here. If you know my art, then you know I can't resist adding recycled and vintage elements to my pieces. This paper mâché moon and spun cotton witch with bats sit on a black candle stick. I had a lot of fun with this one!
I will leave you with a photo of me and two other artists from Spirits in Sanford Halloween Folk Art Show, in Sanford, Fl, where we met with collectors during a costume party. What fun we had! Halloween is really almost here! Email me if you have any questions. Happy fall!
