Halloween Decorations circa 2016


I LOVE Halloween, I love making decorations and decorating and funky lights and crisp nights and strange noises in the night. I started seeing some cool Halloween bottles pop-up on my Pinterest feed and knew I had to make some, so here are my efforts thus far:




The plain glass bottles before



And after they've been transformed into Magical Potion and Elixir Bottles!!!!!!



Some detail shots showing what I did:









In case you haven't figured it out, I made my "potions" very personal, they are named for my novels, and contain things like limerance, and essence of canine and strength of mule.

Narrative Jewelry and more...


I mentioned my jewelry selling days of yore in a previous post so I thought I'd share a couple of brooches from those days. I came up with (I'm really pretty certain that this is my original idea) a genre which I call narrative jewelry. Think of it as wearable illustrations. 

This brooches illustrated sidebar scenes (these are stories based on my first novel's characters but not in the book.) And yes, I'm working on a second novel. It's called "Limerance Road" and is the second book in what will hopefully be my Jame County Mystery series. God willing and the creek don't rise.
