As you can see I am fooling around trying to create changes in my blog..Trial and Error!! But this is how we learn and I decided to be more daring.
The new picture in my title is little Fairy Foo Foo. she has long gone to a new home but I still love her face and decided she represented the heart of my peoples look. I may have to resize the thing to get the look I want but not for awhile.
Halloween and vine is past and I have to get on with the project at hand...Hollydaze, our Christmas, Holiday show is happening here in Petaluma on the 10th of November . I need an inventory but my hardest job is to decide what to make as I have soooo many ideas...
I am working on reindeer and snowmen.. also dogs in drag and girlie santa's (named santa barbara, santa maria, and santa rosa ..to name a few...

As you may know, Halloween and Vine is a juried show. This year we had 3o artists participating.. This was the finest show we have ever done..The artists outdid themselves.
Here are some of our newest people and their fabulous tables.
Arbutus Hunter and her husband
She takes old odds and ends and antiques,paints and decorates them as only she can . The results are wonderful.
Greg Gudel and his famous woodcarvings....
Greg's pieces were truly astounding and he is such a nice guy.
Madga was the featured artist in MaryEngelbreit's Home Companion for Oct/Nov.2007.
What a warm and delightful person she is .I was so happy to meet her...
Gabrielle Acevedo did her wonderful beaded art and jewelry. she was overjoyed at the response she got at the show.
Charles Hall and his friends and helpers . Charles' ladies are tall and elegant and eerie.They were so beautiful and I think they all sold quite early.
