Winter Inspirations





I have been in the holiday spirit and wanted to make a few things to incorporate my festive mood. Though I love Santas and Snowmen and vintage Christmas decor my art does not really follow the path of holiday playfulness as that of so many artists that I admire . So I will admire from afar and leave it up to those who specialize in Christmas to make such lovelies and instead bring forth my own creations that capture ghosts stories on a cold winters night ,a Charles Dickens type of Victorian christmas and mistletoe mischeif. It is a bit of winter and holiday whimsy, with a touch of dark spookyness. I have three new dolls listed this week on eBay and will be adding two more before the holidays along with some ornaments that I have been meaning to list but just are not happy with the results yet so it is still a work in progress. I am my own worst critic!

Enjoy!
Nina.

Oh Nina! Wonderful Winter Ghostly Creations I adore them and their spookiness! I'm so glad you stay true to your spooky style. I've been making silly Christmas stuff and I need to switch it up. I think I'm going to do some Robots. Wishing you a Spooky Winter Wonderland Holiday. And I love the baby countdown how exciting! Congratulations! :)

Nina!! It's been absolute ages since I've visited, and when I do I find VMB gone and a new baby on the way!!

Can't say I'm not disappointed about the business (and going through Tea and Sorrow withdrawls, lol) but I'm so happy you finally have some time for yourself, and can relax a bit and enjoy the season. :)

Congratulations on the impending arrival, and very Happy Holiday wishes to you and your family!
