Visions from the Halloween & Vine...

Well, as promised, I will share some of the photos I took before the doors opened last Saturday at the Halloween & Vine! We were all in a frenzy before the clock struck 9, catching up with artist friends, arranging our displays and marveling at all the eye candy. So, I didn't have a chance to make all the rounds and snap pics of everyone's display, but this is only a tease and will perhaps entice some of you folks who have never been to come on out and join us! There's nothing quite like it :) If I haven't said it enough, I want to THANK all of my dedicated collector pals for coming out early to adopt a special piece! I hope you are enjoying your Halloween art originals! Now, for the photos.........And don't forget to click on them to see more!... {enjoy!}

* A view from my table of the grand room of Halloween delights...


* Me in my orange & black, standing beside my table before the doors opened...


* I love this pic of my hubby JP peeking thru a grouping of my art...


* A quick snap of some of my Halloween characters waiting to be snatched up!...


* Another view from my table...There's the tip of David Bruce's display, then Scott Smith's, Nicol Sayre's and so on....


* Me again next to our last-minute logo configuration that seemed to get lots of attention! I'm glad it worked out considering that we put it together the day before we left for the journey....


* A pic of Vergie Lightfoot (who was next to me ) and her spooktacular table of goods... Ca-Ca-Ca....(inside joke :) he he!


* A close-up of Vergie's handmade treasures....Love those cats!


* Look at these creepy confections with attitude from Scott Smith! What fun!...


* Adorable bunnies and bears in vintage-style Halloween attire, made by the talented hands of Lori Ann Corelis...


* Sharon Bloom's colorful spread of hand-painted pottery delights...


* A sweet grouping of one-of-a-kind collectible dolls, made by the hands of Nicol Sayre...


* Festive Halloween clowns and jack-o'-lanterns made by artist William Bezek...


* Another view of the Halloween tables in Hermann Sons Hall with Allen Cunningham's creations in front center...


* A shiny tray of whimsical Halloween pendants & pins created by Ulla Milbrath...

Wow a table loaded down with goodies. I particularly loved the owls especially the one in front of JP. The witch was cool as well- you do not make a lot of those -do you? As always love the cats! Looks like a great show! Robert

Oh I'm so bummed your owl pieces were sold before I got there. I LOVE my blackbird piece from you. He has a happy home in NC now.

Wow!! Eye candy indeed!! I sooooooo need to get out there one of these years, *sigh*....Thanks so much for sharing the photos. :)

Had to smile at your previous post too - the part about the fear of passing the big semi trucks - ME TOO!!! We drive a little black Beetle, and my husband always makes fun of me when I hold my breath as he squeezes between an 18 wheeler on the right and the cement barrier on the left: "Oooooooh - watch out, we're gonna die!" he laughs - (sooooooooooo not funny!!!)

I wish I could have been at this show! I would definitely have left with an empty wallet and full shopping bags.
