Sunday afternoon was cold and cloudy and a great time to stay inside and put out my Halloween decorations. Above is a weathered handmade birdhouse that I bought from an antique dealer in South Boston, VA, many years ago. Selfishly, I haven't been able to share it with the birds and have it sitting in my breakfast room. I've been able to pick up Halloween figures that have the same weathered look and I make it a haunted house every fall.
I won the beautiful lithograph hanging above the birdhouse from Jeri Landers, the artist who writes the blog, Hopalong Hollow Gazette. It is 16 x 20 and the detail and colors are gorgeous! What a talented lady! She just released a new lithograph that I hope to purchase soon.
