It’s a stormy, blustery October day here in the Pacific Northwest as I write this – we lit our first fire of the season in our little wood stove yesterday, and for an Autumnal soul like mine, it felt like a homecoming.

The Hallowtide triduum of All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day has always been a favorite season of mine, and I’m so excited to share with you some magical Hallowe’en creatures that I’ve caught glimpses of in my art.  It’s a collection of mysterious woodland gatherings, dripping candles, glowing Jack-o-Lanterns, ghosts…just a few of my favorite things. 🙂

The photos below are a preview of what will appear in my Etsy shop this weekend – if you’re interested in purchasing anything, please visit my Etsy shop on Saturday, October 14th at 9 am PST…and of course feel free to get in touch with any questions in the meantime!


Vignettes

Tiny glimpses into the world of Hearthstone Fables, these enchanting faery-sized Vignettes bring cheer and whimsy into a home’s every nook and cranny.  Tuck them behind the draping fronds of a fern, amidst dusty books on the shelf…miniature windows into a magical world, they enliven all of the sheltered corners at home.

Vignettes are hand-drawn, inked, and colored with colored pencils & white gel pen on toned paper, then framed in tiny frames.  They have been sealed with a fixative for extra protection.  The drawings vary in size (specifics will be listed in their respective Etsy shop listings) but are generally 2-3 inches tall.  They range from $35-$45 (plus shipping).

Paintings

Iridescent gold paint mixed with acrylic pigments lends a subtle shimmer to this candlelit scene from my 2016 Hallowe’en collection!  This painting holds a special place in my heart.  Its counterpart – an incense-bearing bat – has sold, but little Chipmunk is available to brighten your Hallowe’en decor.

Trick-or-Treat Boxes

In an ideal world, I’d have a mossy, stone-built studio in the woods – every Hallowe’en, I’d invite my wonderful community over for trick-or-treating, fireside mulled cider, & ghost stories.  If you came trick-or-treating at my little stone studio, I like to think that this is the box of goodies I’d hand out to you this year!

Since, for the time being, we don’t have a woodland candlelit studio to gather in and celebrate Hallowtide, I’m hoping that this box can provide you with the sights, scents, & flavors to make you feel as if you just stepped in for mulled cider at the Hearthstone Fables studio.  I feel like art is best enjoyed with a cup of tea and some beeswax candles flickering, and you’ll find all of that atmosphere tucked into this box.

5 boxes will be available

★ Because I feel like a great part of the fun & spirit of trick-or-treating is the surprise, the assortment of specific images on the giclee print, greeting card, & beeswax-framed ornament featured in each Trick-or-Treat Box will vary from box to box. ★

★ I’m so grateful to my friends Lauren of Olde Liberty Goodes and Heather of Waxing Moon Botanicals for providing beeswax treasures and tea, respectively! ★

Here’s what you can expect to find in your Trick-or-Treat box:

  • Beeswax Witch: Crafted by Olde Liberty Goodes (www.oldelibertygoodies.com), this witch is made with 100% beeswax, scented with Cinnamon and Clove essential oils, and rolled in cinnamon. Her hair is made of llama wool!
  • Beeswax Tea Lights: These sweet little 100% beeswax tea lights were created by Olde Liberty Goodes and are perfect for providing spooky, flickering Hallowe’en light. (Please always supervise burning candles and keep them away from flammables!)
  • Beeswax Art Ornament: This blackened beeswax frame was created by Olde Liberty Goodes and encircles one of my giclée prints.  Specific image varies from box to box.
  • Hearthstone Hallowe’en Tea: Crafted by Waxing Moon Botanicals (www.waxingmoonbotanicals.com) especially for my Hallowe’en collection of art, this warming blend of herbs is the very taste of the Hallowtide season. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have any health concerns, please consult a physician before enjoying this tea.
  • ‘A Merry Hallowe’en’ postcards: Share the spirit of Hallowe’en mystery with friends and family the old-fashioned way by mailing them a festive postcard!  Two postcards are included.
  • Hallowtide Greeting Card: This little handmade greeting card, featuring one of my giclée prints, is perfect for gift-giving or framing.  Specific image varies from box to box.
  • Hallowtide Print: Please enjoy this giclée print of magical creatures celebrating Hallowe’en.  Specific image varies from box to box.

Hearthstone Hallowe’en Tea

As I mentioned above, I feel like art – especially Autumnal art – is best enjoyed with a cup of tea.  My wonderful friend Heather of Waxing Moon Botanicals designed a tea especially for my Hallowe’en collection of art – it bears the color of the season, with some spooky additions like stinging nettle.  My hope is that a warm cup of this tea will help you step into the art a bit more, and that the art will likewise bring out the October flavors in this delicious tea.
