The show was worth the effort it takes to switch coasts for 4 days.
The artist's were dreamy.
The work stellar.
Petaluma, left me smitten.
Here are some pics from Dani's Halloween & Vine 2009
in Petaluma, California!
My first Flight to California (from NJ) just for Halloween & Vine!!
Got into San Francisco and met up with my Halloween & Vine roomie Wendy!
Long Line but everyone files in so quickly at "Go Time" that I didn't feel like I missed a thing!
Hard to judge so here is a pic taken by Jorge of HohoHalloween of the lineup!
Busy, Busy, Busy H&V floor!
Monkey-Cats Studio is sooo dreamy!
Which way do I go, now...which way do I go?
Edgar & Edgar Booth has something for every Halloween lover!
Me with Jorge of HoHoHalloween!
Look at this lil clip of Jorges table-YUM!
Some of the amazing William Bezek's offerings!
~found this & below pic online~
I was able to scoop up one of these!!
William was kind enough to help me choose the right face for me!
We chose the far right middle one with eyes looking upward!
But I did miss out on this basket of goodies ;(
See here is my 1st William Bezek goody next to my 1st Arbutus Hunter piece!
Look at Wendy's Vergie Lightfoot original (Left)
and my Scott Smith Original 2 sided ornament on the right!
The one side has the ticked off kitty!!
And the other side I have named "stoner" the Pumpkin!
The best part is this 2 sided ornie is squeezable with a squeaker in the center!
And look at Bat Boy! I am sooo smitten with him!
By Kerry of PaperMoon!
Here is everything in a lil photo shoot that Wendy & I scored at Halloween & Vine!
AND here is every last bit of Halloweenery we bought while in Petaluma!
Why did we buy from local Petaluma shops too you may be asking?
Here are a few windows displays that explain it all!
Marisa's (Halloween) Fantasia

Let's just say that security checkpoints were very interesting and that TSA agents looked at my carry on bag for 20+ minutes! Now, you know I was SOO NOT "checking" my H&V goodies. Those pieces were carry-ons the whole way baby!
