'The Bones'

October Giveaway: Week 1!

October is my favorite month (it's the official month of skellies)! And to celebrate, I'm giving away stuff each week of the month (including a skelly during the last week of October)!

All you have to do is sign up for my newsletter (over yonder on the right side of this post), and then add a comment to this blog post! Each week you can enter for the new giveaway (if you haven't already won); so easy!

The first winners (TWO winners this week! Yes!) will be announced ON THIS  POST, IN THE COMMENTS, on Monday, October 7th at 10am. So check back to see if you have won! 

The goods: one winner will receive 3 dracula halloween cards, 1 pack of owl swankies and 1 pack of patterned swankies, all designed by me! The second winner will receive 3 owl & jack halloween cards, 1 pack of owl swankies and 1 pack of patterned swankies, all designed by me!

Good Luck!


Skelly Flamingo!

My pink flamingo was just dying (see what I did there? hee hee) to become a skelly flamingo! And since I aim to please, I went ahead and painted her all skellyicious! That's Tallulah hangin' with the flamingos in the bottom "before" shot! Do you have a favorite autumn/Halloween display? Post it in the comments below, I'd love to see it!


Harvest Festival Photos!

The weather for the Harvest Festival was lovely (maybe a bit chilly on Sunday, but, hey, it was the first day of autumn!), and I met so many lovely people! Here are a few photos of all the skellies! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello and meet the skellies!


My new tombstones to display the taxidermy skellies (I love how they came out!):


Skellies on the flip side: my view from the back of the booth:




And this little dude stopped by, all snazzed up in his skelly coat and mohawk! His mom found a skelly to take home, too :)


Harvest Festival with the Beekman Boys!

This weekend I will take part in the Harvest Festival hosted by the Beekman Boys in Sharon Springs, and I'm really excited! I have lots of new skellies to show you, so hop in the car and enjoy a day trip through beautiful central New York!


I'm all about owl skellies lately; here are three new ones that are going to the festival with me!


September Skellies-of-the-Month!

September! This means autumn, the best season of all, is upon us! Here are some fun skellies to celebrate with: tights for chilly days, corkscrew to open your bottle of velvety red, ridiculously fabulous chandelier to keep you out of the lengthening darkness, and a couple of folk art skellies to make you smile while you enjoy the falling leaves, cuddly sweaters & jeans, steaming cups of cider and every pumpkin flavored thing in existence!
