Arthur relaxing while I paint! Great day to paint but I don't think Arthur is going to be of any help!

I was given this clock yesterday when I picked up my other clock from repair. I have taken it apart, cleaned it, sanded it, primed it, and painted the inside black. Now for the fun part base coat then sketching it all out. It will be given a new movement and pendulum. I have to prep the face and back piece that goes behind the glass. This is of course going to be a HALLOWEEN Clock in all its glory.What a really fabulous piece this will be as an addition to any halloween decor. It is going to take some time but I have already accomplished quite a lot as I am really excited to see this come to life. I'm pondering adding a music box to it that plays something witchy or halloween, not sure how to do that but anything is possible. Going to check to see whats available! It may have to have some crows on the top!! Check back to see this piece evolve!!

Once upon a time I did have a costume shop. I sold costumes and also did rentals. The first picture is the headless horseman display. It really scared small kids! Next is the wall of masks. Next two are mannequins in costumes. Then the wicked witch next to the check out counter. I painted the hands to match her mask. I still have her and she is now part of my yearly halloween diplay. Then last is frankenstein strapped to a large tilted table and dracula looking on. Funny how little kids thought these were real!

Well the new movement is on its way, it only took twelve days for it to be shipped. So when it gets here it will be tested and then I will finally list the halloween clock. Still working on the witch herb rack, treat bucket and many other pieces. Oh and its not even halloween and we have bats, real ones. Had them taken care of from the attic last summer and well there was one the other night on the spare bedroom floor still alive so he got scooped up an put outside. I just checked the attic and saw some hanging (creepy). The bat removal service will be back. We even put up a bat house but no bats in it yet!!! Off to paint..........

My name is Jackson and I lived on the streets until I was brave enough to cross the road and ended up in a home with two older brothers and we all get along great. He was once a very sick kitten and now look at him! He is very attached to Arthur, follows him around everywhere and he puts up with it. The sweet life!!
