Old Burial Hill - Plymouth, MA

Old Burial Hill in Plymouth is a remarkable cemetery.
 Many pilgrims laid to rest there.
Overlooking the harbor, I can think if no better place to be buried, the view was amazing.

Love this skull. Very unique.

William Bradford, Plymouth Colony Governor.
Fresh flowers had been laid at his grave.

The family is growing tired of my old cemetery curiosity!

Duxbury, MA

While visiting my sister in Duxbury, MA this week, I had to visit the Myles Standish Burial Ground, oldest maintained cemetery in the US! It was an amazing little graveyard.

Yes, I make my poor family go to old cemeteries.
This skull is pretty though, looks like a heart for a mouth.
Abigail Alden was the wife of Capt John Alden who was accused of being a witch in Salem and escaped to Duxbury.

Myles Standish is buried in a plot surrounded by the cannons.
His gravestone is very bland and fairly new. 

John Alden, said to be the first person to set foot on Plymouth Rock!

CRAZY hair on this figure.

Some more wild hair!

Dutch Bunny Halloween

My offering for July's EHAG Emporium is an adorable folk art Dutch Bunny in a Jack O' Lantern sculpture. The JOL is made out of Fast Mache, the bun is sculpted out of Creative Paper Clay. Both products dry very hard and are extremely durable making this Halloween rabbit a treat that will live for years and years. Measures 9" tall and about 7" wide. Painted in acrylics with an aged patina.  $195 plus exact shipping.

June EHAG Emporium

As we get closer to Halloween, EHAG has decided to open the EHAG Emporium every month. On the last day of the month at 9 PM Eastern, be sure to check the Emporium to see our latest offerings. We have some new members this summer who have created really amazing pieces!

This month I have painted a vintage wood candy dish. I bought it at an antique sale and could see a Jack O' Lantern and Black Cat immediately in the shape of the two compartments. On the bottom, I have left the original stickers unpainted. It is hand made out of monkey pod wood which really gave me a chuckle. It is varnished, signed and dated. Measures 14" x 6.5". Price is $79 plus shipping depending on your zip code.
Email me to purchase.  I accept Paypal, checks and money orders.
