Glamoured Girls for Halloween

I love getting catalogues for holidays,
and now Halloween items are in abundance
in catalogues.  When I saw these fun metallic
skeletons in a current catalogue, I decided
to glam some of my skeletons up.

I found this fabulous Krylon paint
in silver and gold
and couldn't believe what a shiny 
metallic finish it gave me.
Very few metallic paints give this
kind of a finish.  And no this is not
a sponsored post!  Great stuff.

A little strange outside, as she was getting painted.
But it was painted and dried in minutes.
It took less than one can to paint.

After they dried, they brought into the living room
(of course - they are special guests this year) and
then dressed with odds and ends.

I just layered jewels and boas for this lovely lady.

This one sits in a fur and gold chair!  
Isn't she maaaahvelous?
She is seated next to a spooky new
phone that I found at At Home.  The
grandkids really love anything that
talks or moves.

She became great friends with our
friendly vulture - also from At Home this year.

It's all in the little details - fingerless
gloves and a pearl and chain bracelet.

These glamour girls have gotten
a lot of attention this year.  
So glad they decided to make
Purple Chocolat Home,
their Halloween home.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Jacqueline, this is a great idea. Spooky!

  2. What a fabulous idea! Paint is duct tape’s 1st cousin when it comes to flexibility in projects!

  3. Great idea. I love using spray paint. It can transform everything. Happy you shared the shiny paint. Your glamour gals look amazing and look quite comfy in your fabulous house.

  4. Love your girls! They look great in gold and chrome! Where did you find them, they really look good. I love your blog, it is such fun!

  5. Oh my, they are maaahvalous indeed! Perfect in your lovely home Jackie!
