More days of Halloweeny

I've been sticking to my multi days of Halloween. Just by wearing a small token of something spooky each day.

It's looking like my real Halloween may be a wash out. Sandy has already closed the subway for this evening.

I did do a practice run of my makeup just incase Halloween is still a go. I look like one of my paintings.

More days of Halloween

Here's a bit more Halloween fun time. This was my ensemble for going to get my hair colored.

A little bit of Halloween everyday

Those of you who know me personally or know my art work would probably guess that Halloween is my favorite holiday. I suppose for the most part that is true. Some people say that I treat everyday as Halloween since I tend to dress in costumes.

In any given week at work I might hear all of this...
Monday- You look like Rosie the Riviter today
Tuesday- Your outfit is so lumberjack-esque today
Wednesday- Looks like you are going to a garden party today
Thursday- Goth is a good look for you

Well for the remainder of the month I tend to wear a little something spooky each day.

Here is what I have done so far this week...
Day 1
Bloody Nails
I can not take credit for this idea. I saw my friend Jeanie post her nails like this one day. So I thought I steal her idea. Check her out she is a multi-talented lady. She can help you get organized and decorate and pretty much everything.

Day 2

I love this pin that Lee (my husband) got me for Christmas a few years back. I wear it year round.

Today I paired it with a Chanel (inspired) tweed jacket
Day 3

Well I don't like these as good as bloody nails but today I opted for ghost face nails.

If you are down the Savannah GA way this month stop in and see my sister's art show. She is a wonderful artist and this is also her favorite time of year.

Stay tuned for more Halloween wears this coming week.

Art is everywhere

A couple of weekends ago I went to the "country" that's what my husband and I call Brooklyn. We were going to see an unusual art show. The canvas for these artists are motorcycles. Not only do they paint on the canvases however- they make the canvas as well.

The pieces, um I mean bikes were displayed inside like fine sculptures.  There was plenty of room to walk around and see all the details put into each and every bike.

This one was one of my faves. Taking chrome to a whole new level.
I loved the picture frame on this. It was a photo of a little cow. Why?

Classic and beautiful

I'm a sucker for flames!

Even though the show was about all the bikes inside. I must admit I really like seeing the bikes that just come to the show.

This is the same saddle I have on my bike. Bicycle that is. 
Not sure how that rides for any distance but looks swanky!

Rosemary has a mighty large seat. I'm just sayin'
I even found this amazing Indian painting at the show.
Now this would be a wild cab ride.
After we saw all the bikes we headed over to Indian Larry's place. He is no longer with us but his shop is still going strong. He was also having a big shin dig to check out.

I liked this one because of the pin up girls on the tank.
It was a great day. We saw some amazing pieces of art and they weren't hanging on a wall in a stuffy museum. Splendid.

Well the fun and art gawking doesn't end there. Last night we were back in the "country" again. This time at the House of Vans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Half Cab shoe. Steve Caballero was there in the flesh and played with Agent Orange.

This time the canvas really was canvas... in the shape of a Van's shoe. Gives me some ideas!
