EHAG Emporium Tonight!


"Aurum" Owl

  The yellow of gold is an orangish-yellow,
                                                  Much the same as this big eyed fellow.
His voice heard above, to the side and below,
But heed to his call, as your goosebumps grow.
He tells of a night, filled with candy and fright,
Indeed Aurum tells of Halloween night!
Cool Autumn air, with a spooky hoot flair,
The crunch of dry leaves, fallen down from the trees.
Listen, don't tarry, we're off to make merry,
It's All Hallow's Eve, ... and you thought this was scary.

In Welsh, Aurum means Gold, and this little Owl brings
with him the Midas touch. Golden leaves in the Autumn,
the warm glow of a crackly fire,
and the amber of Halloween carmel for apples and popcorn. Yum!. :-)

Aurum Owl
                                                            3 1/2" (H) x 3 3/4" (W)
                                                                     100.00  + free ship
                                                           Available in my Etsy Shop! :-)

More clicky clicky on the ol' " Like" key....

 I've been doing major construction and building a new business/artists Facebook page, following the lead of my fellow artists. (Yes, it's different from the Personal Page)
Facebook has made several changes, which have now made it much easier for visitors to link to artists blogs, photos galleries, and Etsy shops, all of which is making for
a nice one stop sees all (almost) experience! :-)
Talk about making things easier.... Oh Wow! I've only just, figured out
how to link an image! WhooHoo! I'll master this blogging yet! lol

Here is the new badge I've created for my page.
What do you think?

If I can impose, and if you could be so kind, as to once again, click the "like" button for me on my new Facebook page, I'd be most grateful, thankful and appreciative!
 (I guess Facebook won't recognize you till you have enough "Likes".
You're also welcome to leave a comment or two.. or three.
I love comments! :-)
 I'm looking forward to this year, and bringing more fun characters to life for everyone's enjoyment!
Thanks Again!
Happy Spring! ~ Deb

Gwallter the Welsh Goblin

It's time for the EHAG Artist Challenge and here is my piece
"Gwallter, the Welsh Goblin"

Goblins are a very different and often grotesque variety of gnomes. They are small, mischievous creatures that revel in harassing and annoying humankind with their pranks. They are often playful, but they have a spiteful and selfish nature and are prone rudeness. They love to throw rocks, alter signposts, hide objects, and they’ll stick their tongue out at you if confronted. Goblins inhabit much of the world and can be found near rocky outcroppings and around the roots of ancient trees at the forests edge.

Around St Patrick’s Day Goblins are said to play tricks on the Leprechauns as well, which causes much hoopla in the Fairy world. The Leprechauns, also known as Fairy Cobblers have a dislike for Goblins because they have a habit of hiding their shoe buckles in the hollows of oak trees.

Halloween is the Goblins favorite time as they are more prone to Tricks than Treats.
“Gwallter” has been caught hiding a Halloween Ghost pumpkin, so, in true Goblin form,
he has stuck out his tongue to nettle you further.

9 1/2" (h) x 5" x 5"
Gwallter is available on Ebay.
Please be sure to check out the other EHAG artists challenge work as well!
Thank You SO much for your interest and

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Lots of This and That ....

Look what was blooming in my garden yesterday! Ha Cha!
You would think, as lovely as this is that I'd have more, but,
I only have this one Hyacynth along side the driveway and each year it gives a beautiful show.
Somehow I thought the Skunks would dig up the bulbs but they havn't so maybe I need to plant some more.

The Grand Canyon Rose in the front is budding out and this is it's first bloom of the year.

You may wonder where I've been... well....
The rain seems to have subsided for a bit, and with our lovely weather, I've been trying to get a jump on the garden and Spring cleaning. I had a lot of catching up to do having been out of commission,
and slowly but surly it's nearly caught up.
I'd best get  moving too, because I have several art pieces awaiting thier finishing touches, AND
Next week there will be a special piece listed for the first EHAG art challenge of the year!

EHAG (Eclectic Halloween Artists Group) is hosting an art challenge so
you don't want to miss this one!

I'll close with the view outside my front door of this fantastic sunset!
It looked like the sky was on fire it was so brillant. So far this year we've had several
shows similar to this at dusk. How exciting to see the other night, albeit for a few seconds, the Space Shuttle
Discovery fly across the sky one last time. A wonderous thing!
