Halloween Gathering

I belong to an art group called  "In My Vintage Room & Beyond" and Friday night two of the gals, Doris & Beth, hosted a Halloween themed gathering, which was held at another member's home, Michele, who graciously let us use the dining room of her beautiful home as a meeting place.

Due to bad weather,  last year's Halloween gathering had to be cancelled.  However, our challenge for last year was to alter a paper mache Witch's Hat - because of the cancelation we never "revealed" our hats.  This year the challenge was to alter a Tim Holtz Alarm Clock.  So with our Witch's Hat and Clock in our bags we all showed up at Michele's for a wonderful evening of delicious food,  desserts and great conversation!  Everyone oohed and awed at the reveals!  Our hands-on project for the evening was to altered an old wooden thread spool and to create a Halloween inspired pin to wear - sorry, I do not have pictures of them.

Unfortunately, I don't know the creators of all of the hats and clocks....we forgot to put the artist names on the artwork!!!  But, nevertheless, I will share the pictures I captured last night and guess at the ones I think I remember:

This one is easy, Steampunk - it's Maura's!
Fran - that's me!

Here are the clocks that were altered - I believe I gave the names are correct:
Fran -me!
 Girls, please forgive me if I gave you credit for the wrong artwork or didn't mention your name at all!!!

Now let me introduce you to the members of "In My Vintage Room & Beyond" art group who were in attendance last night:
