Blackberry Junction & Deepwood

Yesterday, my friend Diane and I set up my area at Blackberry Junction (see info to the left). I have the most unusual space. It is a small area at the top of stairs that lead to the stage. Very dark, crackley and perfect for a Halloween-themed display! Blackberry Junction

begins this Friday, September 19th and runs through September 27th. There are many, many vendors and too many wonderful fine handcrafts, antiques and collectibles to list. I already snagged a soft sculpture pumpkin of vintage velvet made by Emily Engle. Thank you Emily!

This picture shows an old, old clock case with a glass door. Inside I placed an image of a little girl ready to celebrate Halloween. The case is surrounded by many more of my little "pumpkin sitters", magic wands and pumpkins.

I love these witchy stockings! I bought some vintage cotton stockings several years ago with the idea of bleaching them for a Christmas project. The bleaching didn't work and they got stuck in a drawer. When I found them this year, they seemed perfect for Halloween. What do you think?
I redressed my mannequin for the occasion and


hung a fabulous old scary chandelier! Of course - more pumpkins, big and small.

Tonight, I will begin getting ready for the Historic Deepwood Estate Antique Faire to be held this Sunday, September 21st. More info at: http://www.historicdeepwoodestate.org/. Hope to see you there! M.
