I couldn’t resist using some autumn colors this week. Festive, no? But what is really getting me in to the Halloween spirit is this weather. We are actually having lovely crisp cool sunny days with cold nights here in Florida. It’s extremely invigorating after what seemed like a never-ending scorching humid summer. I feel alive. In retrospect I guess I was feeling dead. It’s amazing what a shift in the wind and drop in tempature can do for a girl.
Okay to celebrate the season, how about some gothalicious Tim Burton fashion as seen in Harper’s Bazaar and beautifully photographed by Tim Walker.

Maybe you don’t have a few grand to toss on to a garment, even if it is over-the-top gorgeous. I sure don’t, but I did make a new friend at the Art-oberfest who makes some adorable punk/goth ballerina skirts and hand screened winged skull t-shirts and necklaces and such. Her name is Carey Borden and she is the artist and designer behind C.A.B Fayre. If you like your handmade fashion and accessories with attitude, I think you’ll like Carey’s work – shop C.A.B. Fayre on etsy.

I’ve been experimenting with making chunky polymer cuff bracelets. These bracelets are unisex, one of a kind, and made of pure awesome! Well technically they are made of polymer clay which I hand form over an armature, illustrate in pen and ink, paint with acrylic and then varnish to protect the artwork. They take quite a bit longer and will be released less often which just makes them that much more unique and special. Also, I’m signing each one of these so when I drop dead maybe you can make a few bucks off them on ebay. Anyway, here is the first release entitled: Chunky Funky Sock Monkey now available in my etsy store.
Your turn to do the writing. Haiku away! I’ll see you next week…
