Dark Horse Arts and Gifts (Etsy) Halloween Spooktacular Giveaway #2

As you know today marks the first day of October and the beginning to my favorite month on the whole year! I don’t know if this is because my birthday is Oct 11 or if it’s the change in the weather or of course my favorite Holiday of the entire year HALLOWEEN? Maybe it a combination of all three but I just had to celebrate this month with some fun, some spooky and some silly reviews and giveaways!

Up next for in the Halloween Spooktacular Blog Event is an awesome shop that I found on Etsy a few weeks ago called Dark Horse Arts and Gifts and I have to say this shop has some of the most beautiful, cute and unique products for any season/occasion you are looking to spruce up your home or if you are looking for unique gifts. I was so excited to see the special giveaway for all of my special readers that is going to be something that is unique to this giveaway and you can’t get anywhere else!

About Dark Horse Arts and Gifts(Taken From Shop):

Welcome! Dark Horse Arts and Gifts is a labor of love that allows me to show you my fine ceramic art, figurines, and household items. All make perfect collectibles and gifts.

When I was a child, I worked in my mom's ceramic store helping her pour molds, clean greenware, fire kilns, and teach classes. I loved choosing different colors and glazes to use on the ceramics we created. Today, I carry on the passion of my younger years. I have returned to making ceramics and sharing my creations with you!

I am not alone -- my mom has great talent when it comes to painting eyes and detail work. My husband helps me at local shows, customer service and I have even put him to work cleaning and glazing pieces as well. Some of the pieces you see have been worked on by all three of us!

I am very happy you have found my shop on Etsy and sincerely hope that you love our art as much as we do.

Special requests are welcome. Just let me know your idea and I will do my best to make it happen.

Thank you for stopping by!

In appreciation,
Jeanie

Jeanie also asked me to mention that Halloween is their favorite time of year/season! They love decorating with spooky lights, pumpkins, ghosts, skeletons and skulls all over the house and outside as well! So that’s something that Jeanie and I have in common :0)

My Thoughts:

Now, I wasn’t given a product to review here on my blog but I do what to tell you my thoughts on the items Jeanie has to offer in her shop!

I’ve been spending quite a bit of time at the Dark Horse Arts and Gifts Etsy shop and with all of the beautiful gifts that Jeanie has to offer I’m pretty sure you are going to find the perfect addition to your own holiday décor and/or the perfect gift for that special someone in your life. Jeanie is a super talented woman and her creations are just so unique and beautiful that I could find a place in my home for each and every one of her marvelous creations!

The first item that caught my eye while browsing Dark Horse Arts and Gifts was Jeanie’s beautiful Boo Box! I don’t know for sure what has drawn me to this particular piece but I’ve absolutely fell in love with this little treat box! I’m loving the happy face on the ghost and I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before but I’ve always been fascinated with ghost and that’s our go to décor for this fun holiday!

The next item I found that I was drooling over was Jeanie’s super cute Halloween Pumpkin 4 dish set in Black and White! I think these would be wonderful to use to serve our spooky Halloween treats on at our annual Halloween/Fall Fest we do every year for the kids! I think this set is just too adorable and I would love to display these not only at the Halloween Fest but the whole month of October in a very special place on my mantel!

This last item was very hard to decide on because I love all of the items she has that are Halloween related but she also has some awesome Christmas related décor and gifts as well but since we are celebrating Halloween I’m going to stick with that theme and go with the adorable Jack O’Lantern Centerpiece in black and white! I can already visualize this beauty on my entertainment center in the place of honor! I’m really loving all the black and white pumpkins that Jeanie has to offer I think they give a whole new twist to traditional Halloween Décor.

Bottom Line:

I have to admit that narrowing down just three Halloween décor/gift pieces from Dark Horse Arts and Gifts was really hard and I would have loved to be able to feature all of Jeanie’s beautiful pieces! So if you want to see more or maybe Halloween isn’t your holiday head on over to Dark Horse Arts and Gifts and check out the other items that they have to offer, I’m sure you are going to fall in love with at least one piece!
