Rupert! My little Gargoyle.....

About this design:

Here's my latest addition to my display.....
at least through Halloween....
I was in Oceanside couple of weeks ago, and decided I needed a new attention grabber, and with Halloween on the horizon, I thought he would be perfect....
Rupert, is about 3 feet tall and weighs about 80 pounds.... Eric is wonderful for carrying this around for me.... It's his pride and joy, and usually sits on our patio year round.....
I have a show this weekend and another in two weeks....So far Ruppert has been in two shows and have brought us good luck !!!!


Gargoyle, Halloween Tree, Halloween earring cards, Halloween battery lights, earrings....

    He is so cool. I can see the attention he would bring from far away. Your Halloween earring cards are great. Do you also sell the stone specimens on your display?

    Awwww … Rupert is adorable … in a spooky gothic way of course. He’s very effective as a display piece, and I’m sure will lead to lots of nice sales.

    Big Chicky Hugs!!!

    How cool is that! :-D
    That Eric of yours, what a guy!! If I asked my husband to carry an 80 pound display to a show, he’d think I was crazy! ;-)

    Thank you so much, my friends !!!!
    Rupert has brought lots of attention, from the kids, to adults……
    And I was suprised how many people want to buy him….. but
    he is not for sale…… we love him too much !!!!

    Caryn, yes , we do sell the stone specimens…. we just started doing that a few weeks ago…. I had some that I was using just for displays in my booth… and people wanted to buy them…. so now I have started to sell them… I have several different stones, shperes, and crystals…..
    and….. remember the very large septerian geode that I listed a few months ago…. it sold last weekend !!!!!!

    Wow, that is great. I went to a jemshow last weekend and was in love with everything. I never knew how many people had an interest in “stones” like I am.

    Rupert is so lucky that you and Eric tote him around to craft shows. Most ‘goyles lead such a stay-at-home existance…
