Merry Thor’s Day!

Hello WoodSprites!

It has been a busy, busy past week or so, in a good way!  I want to say thanks to all of you who visit An October Monday and help to support it’s growth it makes my heart happy!  

So time for a shop item updates… We have two new items up in the Etsy Shop (well one is a set but…)

So here are this weeks new whimsical woodcrafts:

Laundry Today or Skyclad Tomorrow 


3 Sisters


This week I am busy working on two beautiful new altars, Green Lady and Green Man.  These will be done on stunning and sturdy oak and I super excited about these two lovelies!  One thing that is awesome about An October Monday portable altars is they are really portable.  Yes, they are small and convenient to just pick up and move from place to place but our altars were created with those who want to venture out into the outdoors or who have to travel a lot and want one that can easily and quickly be packed up to go.  With that in mind we made it fast and simple to remove the legs, kept the size small  enough (but not too small) to slip into a backpack or suitcase so you can take your personal altar wherever your path takes you!  We have two style available on the shop:

Art Nouveau Altar



Tree of Life

Treeof LifeAltar

We are really excited to be adding two more styles to the shop!  I will share once they are available so keep an eye out for them!

Last weekend my darling husband and I ventured out to the Robin Hood Springtime Festival in New Haven CT… I loved it!  I have never been to a Renaissance Fair (don’t judge) I had such a great time!  This got me to thinking, maybe it’s time for An October Monday to start working toward doing some festivals… And maybe even adding some Renaissance/Fantasy items in the shop?  Dragons, Fairies, and  Knights… OH MY!  So what do you think?  

Also, I want to announce that An October Monday will be the featured artist at I {heart} Rhody on August 12, 2015!  I am super excited and honored to be showcased on this wonderful blog full of all kinds of great information on things in Rhode Island.  So a huge Thanks to the wonderful ladies who run I {heart} Rhody!

Well Sprites it’s time to fly have order to finish and two new altars to start on! 

Until next time…

Hold on to Your Happy, Laugh till it hurts and Live in Love,

Beautiful New Portable Altars!

Merry Thursday WoodSprites and Witches!

Just a quick blog about An October Monday’s new portable altars.  These hand crafted altars are made of pine, designs are wood burned, vinegar stained, legs are painted with Milk Paint and then sealed with a water based polyurethane.  The are 12 x 11, they stand 7 inches and the best part is the legs come off!  They are the perfect size for slipping into a backpack making them very convenient to take on the fly and just the right size to keep out of sight for those of you in the broom closet 😉 

We have two beautiful styles but can of course create a custom piece just for you!  Our two beauty’s are a stunning Tree of Life, stained with an apple cider vinegar and hand painted leaves, the second is a lovely Art Nouveau inspired pentacle altar, complete with Le Chat Noir, the stain is a combination of white and red wine vinegar, giving it a beautiful antique feel.


Art Nouveau & Tree of Life Altars available at
