I FINALLY finished taking photos of my new books. Sorry it took me so long.
You can buy and see the details of these books and scrolls here:
I am so tired so I will write more in the morning:-) It always takes me all day to photograph and post my books.. I get so tired of looking at the computer screen by the end of the day..

I thought I would share my mermaids fish bowl. She usually stays in my curio cabinet. But I finally found her a permanent home in a bowl (with a lid to keep the dust out). The porcelain top was made by Sylvia Mobly and then made into a mermaid by Todd Krueger. She is surrounded by her treasure horde. Possibly in the future I may display her like she is on an island surrounded by water inside the bowl. That my lift here a little higher. But I haven't quiet figured out how I will do that:-)..
Todd is also dressing me a Marie Antoinette doll that I am so very excited to get. I will be showing off pieces of my Marie roombox soon.
also.... can anyone tell me how to break your blog up into different pages?? or does it do that automatically? I don't want to have so many photos to load on one page and jam up someones computer..

Miniature Potion Bottles
A new batch of miniature potion bottles for sale. These are really just as fun to make as the "real size" bottles, and they don't take up any room. He!!
Included are Dragon embryos and some new "fiji mermaid" bottles. I also have finished some hanging bottles in this batch.

Halloween Prop Potion Bottles
I finally got around taking some photos of my "real size" potion bottles. I made these just for fun to display around my house. I have been collecting the bottles for a long time. I had WAY too much fun making them.
The labels are the same labels I made for my miniatures. I thought it might be fun for everyone to see a larger version of the graphic. You can see much more of the details.
I hope to add more every year. I still need to fill a few of the bottles. Trying to deiced what would be best liquid to use? Maybe I will have to dump them out and refill them every year. Today I bought one of fake snakes that grow larger when you put them in water. I am going to try and use them in one of the bottles. I do keep a vanity in my room with Halloween theme items all year around. But I kind of have a raven or black bird them for my Halloween decor.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have some photos to sow of my new "mini" potion bottles. I have spend too much time playing with my real size bottles.
I just realized I forgot to put my "black death" potion bottle in the photo. It has a rubber rat inside:-)

First I would like to say thanks so much for all the welcomes on my first post..
Something for Halloween...
Miniature Vampire Hunter Cabinet - I really like how this turned out so I thought I would show it off. I made the whole thing form scratch. It is a version of my Apothecary Cabinet. I wanted to find a way to incorporate a vampire skull into a vampire hunting kit. I think it worked out well and it has a bit of Victorian look to it.

Thought this may be a good way to keep everyone current with my most recent creations.
Not very good a writing about myself or my art but I thought I would give it a try.
Here is my most recent.. A curiosity cabinet. I have been thinking of making one of this for awhile. I had so much fun making it I am thinking of making a whole curiosity shop for myself..
Some of the "curiosities" found on the cabinet:
Fiji Mermaid under glass (always wanted to make one of these)hehe!
Shrunken head under glass
real shark jaw
two headed stake
photos of people with strange oddities
African fertility statue
sculpted head with strange high skull
seal life coral, sand dollars, starfish, puffer fish etc.
