Halloween Vintage Style

I've always loved vintage holiday greeting cards & postcards, etc.  The illustrations are so adorable!
I decided to do a painting of this "cute little witch girl & her cat" in my folky style.  I'd like to give credit to the artist of the illustration but can't read the signature.
Anyway, this little Halloween painting is available on EBAY right now - right HERE!
Have a SCARY day!!!

Vintage Suitcase Cat Bed

I've been seeing some REALLY CUTE cat beds online made from old, vintage suitcases & decided I HAD to make one myself!  Got this wonderful case at an antique store here in town (actually last year) & finally got to work on it.  Added some legs, cute decorations & made a fleece poly-filled cushion to place inside & VOILA!  Turned out just how I wanted!
Do the cats use it?  no
Is it a great decorative piece next to our kitchen fireplace?  YESSS!
I think the cats will eventually figure out it's for them.  They can't seem too eager, you know.  That wouldn't be cat-like.  It took our dog about a year to use the antique bed I bought him but now he's on it ALL the time!
Happy cat-napping to you all!  purrrrr.......

P.S.  The stuffed kitty is from Urban Outfitters & the cute rug is from Target!

 Frida 1
Frida 2 (available on Ebay HERE!)

Yep, I've been GONE a looong time from the blogging scene!  I think I've forgotten how.
I won't bore you with dumb stories of how I've been so busy & taken lots of trips & all that crap.  I was pretty much just lazy & wanted to take a break from it.  Does anyone even blog anymore??  Seems like it's all Facebook & Twitter these days.  Really, who has the time to blog every day anyway??  Ok, enough of that. I'm starting to sound like a big grouch.

Just wanted to post my 2 latest Fridas.  The 2nd one was actually in an art show here in town.  I think my painting was the only "folk art" piece there.  Definitely the brightest in color (ha) so it stood out!

I have another painting to share, my latest foster kitties & a couple of cute cat things I recently made & bought so those will be in my next few posts - which I hope won't be 5 months from now!

By the way,  I read that book "Gone Girl" ~ very good!
