My Halloween in Country Sampler!...

Yes, it's true that Halloween is already making an appearance on the news stands, and fortunately, a sampling of my Halloween reproductions from Primitives by Kathy are featured! Keep an eye out for the current September issue of Country Sampler Magazine. On page 34, they feature the cozy fall-decorated home of decorator and shop keeper Christina Zimmerman of Buttermilk Junction. The photographer & photo stylist duo, Philip Clayton-Thompson and Donna Pizzi are friends of mine, and they composed the lovely pictures, graciously including some of my latest Halloween reproduction designs. And, it was an extra treat to see my name mentioned on the sidebar of the article, so thank you Country Sampler for that! You'll have to find yourself a copy of this fall issue. For now, here is a tease below, and to see additional photos from this article, visit Country Sampler's Inspiration Gallery where you will spot more photos of my Halloween folk art!.... ENJOY!

Thank you Christina for including my Halloween collectibles in your fall collection! It is a treat to see them in your home :)
