Halloween Table of Treats!...

I'm doing the happy dance this weekend! A package arrived for me yesterday including two Sept. / Oct. issues of Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine! My heart began to race as I flipped through the pages and came upon a festive spread featuring my Halloween folk art! Yay, it happened! :) Ever since they contacted me a year ago, asking for samples of my Halloween collectibles, I've had my fingers crossed that my art would make the cut. Fortunately, each and every item I sent to them was used as a prop in this Halloween spread. How fun!

All but one of these Halloween delights are offered through Primitives by Kathy, and if you are interested in adding any or all to your personal collection, please click here! Thanks for looking, enjoy and go get a copy.... :)

You are a SUPERSTAR!!! Your pieces look fabulous on her table. Maybe we'll be seeing them featured on her show??? Looks like I'm going to be spending a fortune buying magazines this fall. Not necessarily a bad thing. See you soon at H&V.

I have to tell you that your work is brilliant! I first saw your designs in Halloween Better Homes and Gardens of last year and I had to rush out and buy this years plus Paula Deans magazine. I just purchased the owl candy bowl and I absolutely love it! I've not seen any other folk art Halloween decor that can touch yours! Your are a real talent and keep up the good works!
