Caskets for Halloween

Just something fun to celebrate samhain

As usual I find my mojo just in time to miss the holiday itself .

 I didn't finish these in time to sell them for halloween

but I get to enjoy them this year so It's not a total wash

I love how this side turned out on this one.

 you see even ghosts are afraid of spiders!

 this one is all blacks and greys somber elegance with feathers.

I can't be serious about everything, what would be the fun in life otherwise??

 though this stitch combination did turn out smashing, if I do say so myself!

 this one is a little plain but I thought,

with the bright orange sequins,

 anything more would have tarted it up a bit too much.

and they all have this wonderfully lush red satin linings. it contrasts so well with the stark black of the interior you can almost hear the hinges creak!

this one is my favorite though.

the bright center orange rose hides a stark white skull in its center surrounded by more roses and pumpkins fresh from the patch.

a candy corn flower, a key to the afterlife and a brilliant green spider finish it off.

what could be more Halloweenie?

I knew you would post a memorable Halloween project!! Very unique and unusual. I think I like your favorite the best too.

I am working on a witch hat inspired by your last year project. But I'm a slow worker and can never seem to find quiet time. I suspect I'll be finished around Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween
xx, Carol

I love the caskets, Flora! I have an unfinished one here somewhere, maybe I'll see what I can come up with!

I find the so funny idea, as the work; with a small preference for that with the pink(roses); bravo!

Beautiful day
