Welcome to Friday Face OFF!
This is the place to show off your face art. It can be any type of face in any medium. I do mean any type of face, so use your imagination.
Tomorrow is Mr. Ms. birthday. He is the type of guy that doesn't want anything, or any hoop la about it. However, I always make it a nice day for him and he is happy that I did.
Today for FFO I have finished a few Witches Bells for my show. The show feels like a long way off but if I don't get items made now time will sneak up on me. LOL
These are the smaller size of Witches Bells
Witches Bells don't normally have faces in the centers but I wanted mine to be very unique.
This also gives me a fine way to use the faces I have made. I think I explained Witches Bells in a previous post but have had some quetions about them. In olden times bells were (and still are) believed to keep away negative energy. Witches Bells were hung on the door knob of a home. If you think about it, the modern door bell may have some correlation.
Now for this weeks featured artist.
I am also linking up with Gillena
Thanks for stopping by
and I hope you join in.
Interesting speculation about modern door bells!
Happy Birthday to the Mr! Lovely bells and Lin's art is amazing.
I really like these latest Witches Bells. I like that they have actual bells. You can never start too soon getting ready for your show. These (and their adorable faces) will make great additions, too. Thanks so much for hosting FFO, dear Nicole.
Thanks for changing your comment form. This will be SO much easier, since I won't keep having to return to try to publish.
Same here - since age 14 I do not celebrate my Birthday, I always hated it!
My friends always had birthdays in summer and we could run and play in the garden. January... ppppft. Plus I don´t like to be the POI.
But: Happy, happy Birthday wishes tomorrow!!!
And I love your Witches Bells! Bet they will be a great hit!
To a happy Friday (and Birthday and ... all!)
Fabulous creations today! Happy Friday, hugs, Valerie
your bells are wonderful. It's a very original form of art than yours.There's a lot of spirit and magic in it.
The symbolic door hanging looks great, Nicole.
Hope it works like you told.
Here we use also door hangings but they are only for look nice and welcome in.
Have a wonderful weekend xx
...I wish a Happy Birthday yo your special fellow. Thanks Nicole for hosting the party.
If you look at Barb's happy face on my current blog post, you'll agree that she fits the bill!
I am curious, do you use molds or stamps in your clay work?
Happy Birthday Mr! 🎂
Beautiful witches bells
Amazing to learn their use!
I've been hanging jingle bells on my front door for years.
The witches bells came out great. And I like how you connected them to doorbells. I have bells on my bedroom door and a door chime on another door and it is also so pleasing to hear the noise. Have a great FRiday Nicole. hugs-Erika
Oh, how handy that we have a modern doorbell - I didn't know about its protective function 😄! Jokes aside, dearest Nicole, I like your Witches Bells and I think it's a good idea that you put your faces in it. That looks good and special. Among other things, I'll give you a few little frog faces for your linkup 😊🐸
All the best (and happy B-day to your hubby!) - Traude 😘

gosh I love faces... I like your take on the bells piece a lot
Oh I have to start coming on Thursday! I'm late to the party. Sure is fun though.
With so many ways to deter witches, you would think everyone would have been safe, but I don’t think it was true.

Loving your witches bells. I'm slipping up, I don't have any face art this week, just flowery things.
Happy birthday to Mr! and congrats on your gardening actvities!
Hi, Nicole! I love your Witches bells. I don't recall hearing about them before. And I love that yours have faces. That makes them look spectacular. So your Mr. Ms. and I share a birthday. Please give him my happy birthday greeting and best wishes. It's lovely that you make the day nice for him! For me a birthday is all about spending time with someone I love. Hugs to you!
A beautiful collection of the wonderful arts you have created.
P.S. I am currently unable to even copy paste any links off the blogger platform. Hence I am not even commenting as much as I would have liked. No personal laptops with me while travelling abroad. Happy St Patrick's Day
Birthday wishes to your hubby.
Have a great weekend
Happy Birthday wishes to your husband.
I am loving your witches bells Happy weekend
I like bells, but I've never had anything like these. Nice!
So, a belated Happy Birthday to Mr. M. and I agree he deserves a nice day to celebrate with you. You are a good person, Nicole. Now, witches bells ... they are delightful, but I had never heard of them. Is there a story behind them that would add to their appeal? When is your show and how do those of us who don't live in the northwest get to see your art and perhaps purchase something? Every time I come over here, I think to myself, I would like to have that ... hmmm and here I am doing it again. You should have a shop or something, right? Anyway, I love your art, if that isn't obvious and look forward to seeing what you will have each week. Enough said ... stay well, Nicole ...

I really like this one, Nicole. The wreath is a perfect frame for the face.
Happy Birthday to your husband.
I do like your witches bells.
Have a good week.
All the best Jan
