If I had my way I would live in a home that was a cross between The Munsters house and The Addams Family home.  But I cohabitate and not everyone shares my love of all things dark and creepy.  So I have to be content with making fabulously creepy and wonderful items for other people's homes.  This week I finished a spice rack that I think would be the perfect touch in a gothic kitchen.  I gave it a bit of an apothecary design.  Who hasn't dreamed of cooking in their kitchen and grabbing spices from a rack with poison signs on it?  It can't just be me. ;)

I really like displayed collections featured in glass enclosed hutches or curio cabinets.  So whenever I find a cabinet with a glass front I snap it up for a creeptastic display shelf.  I gave this one a Black Widow theme.

Occasionally I run across clocks that I want to give new life to.  The Latin phrase, "Omnes Vulerant, Ultima Necat" (All {hours}wound but the last kills.) is a perfect phrase to remind us of times fleeting quality.  I incorporated it into this clock along with a miniature cemetery to fill the space where a missing drawer went.

Still Waiting for Fall!

It's 102 degrees today which means there is not even a hint of Fall in the air.  So I'm left to create my own hints of Fall.  First I made a Haunted House diorama.  Inside is the ghost of Annabelle and her very creepy doll.  In the front yard are the graves of Annabelle and her parents.

Then I went with the classic skull and added a spider sitting in his eye socket mounted on wood planks.

And this week I went traditional Halloween with a Witch diorama piece.  I was all about the #CreativePaperclay for this piece.  I made the hat, pumpkins, cauldron, broom and book from the clay.  Here's a picture before I painted everything and the finished piece.

I'm feeling the chill in the air already, okay, it's really just the air conditioner but a girl can dream. :)
