Halloween & Vine's Magic










I love Halloween's collectors, their enthusiasm and their passion for their favorite holiday. As ever, they turn out en force for Halloween & Vine. This event is autumn's fine salute to the harvest, the feast of all souls, the macabre, and the merry traditions of costumes, trick or treat and the mighty jack o'lantern.
I feel lucky to have experienced this event once again...






I am out here in CA this weekend to help Earth Angels' artists Magda, Laurie and Nick. We cannot help but have a wonderful time together....Here are some of our favorite images of the day! (Thanks once again to Loren and his lovely assistant Bonnie for the pics!)








We love these ladies...bring on the bling!









Magda in a hat of peacock feathers...













Laurie in a teddy... by Letty





Linda was there....and we loved seeing her...









Magda's work in the sun...
and the artist herself...

















Mud-Cakes galore...









More Mud-Cakes magic...


These dashing fellows....

The displays were haunting...











Danyel and Darren... the dynamic bro and sis duo were our booth neighbors...

Nicky's fabulous critters...

...and a yummy treat...
















Debrina Pratt and her daughter Emily made it over to Petaluma for a visit...it was wonderful to finally meet them both! Debrina confessed that she is really getting into this Halloween thing...hurray...we've brought her over to the dark side!
So I am now working on all the wonderful images of the art and goodies the artists will have me share with Earth Angels' customers...we're planning several newsletters chock full of Halloween creations...
In the meantime, me and the gals are off to the Petaluma Antique Faire in the early morning...if I find anything fab I will be sure to post on our adventures...
Until then
xxoo Jen

Ohhhh my goodness- what amazing things! Love those bling ladies. This is the time of the year where my jealousy just goes into over-drive, as all the wonderful Halloweenie action comes in from the US. Living in Australia can really be a downer!
