Quoth The Raven

Quoth the Raven.....I am the Grand Pooba of Ravens!!     Sooooo......doesn't a Grand Pooba raven need a hat?  And a fancy hat at that?  Why yes, yes she does!  After making these pumpkins out of beaded fabric...I had a small pieces of fabric left over...enough to make a hat for this raven...or crow...or whatever...?.........Anyway, I just cut some cardstock in a cone shape, added the fabric, then some black trim and feathers....and VOILA!!

But that just wasn't enough!  So next I gave her a royal necklace!  Ha!  What's not to love? 
Here she is, in all her raven glory!  Life is short -- go for the Bling!   Next to fancy shmancy silver pumpkins....and an ornate Halloween Haunted Mansion....complete with its own pretty ghostie!! 
 Well, then I am the Grand Pooba of Ghosties!!
The little ghostie.... I made her out of sequined fabric.  With such a fancy Haunted Mansion, I needed a fancy Ghost, too, don't you think?  Yep,  I made her out of a wooden thread spool, a wooden dowel stick, stuffing, and the sequined fabric.  You can see more details about her and the Haunted Mansion here.
Here is the whole vignette.
 And by candle light in the evening
A few close ups...

This was the view of my foyer....I made the wreath a few years ago....
Just now realizing that my son's sunglasses are in these photos.....hmph....he's ruining the "Halloween-ness" of this vignette!  (To him, it's just the table next to the front door -- a place to deposit things when you walk in....)  .....Teenagers!  :0

Here I stand in all my Grand Pooba-ness!!!
Happy Halloween, Everyone!!
Hugs, Catherine

  12. my co-worker and I were just talking about Ravens today. He was saying how smart they are. I was telling him we have a single Raven hanging around the yard for the past couple of weeks. Any other time there has been a murder of them together. I don't believe I've see a single one on our road since moving there many years ago.

    I love your Quoth
