More Coffins For Sale

Hello! As promised, I'm back to show you some of the latest coffins I have available in my showroom. If you missed the first offering, you can check them out HERE. Once again, Gus, our Funeral Director, will be showing our newest models.

Each of the coffins is made with Tim Holtz Coffin Box die.

Are you looking for something unique? This purple model is our most requested for the fun at heart! (Wilted Violet Distress paint, rubbing alcohol, Prima Sparks Ravens Eye, Tim Holtz Halloween 4     stamps, spider charm, silver thread)

Another coffin we offer is this hefty solid stone variety made from rough unpolished granite. (Prima Concrete Stone Effects paste, black gesso, Tim Holtz  Halloween Typed Token and Mini Fasteners, Picket Fence  and Black Soot Distress Crayons)

Our re-claimed wood pine box offers a  more economical option. It's our only softwood version with an oak color.  It is roughly hewn and has an unlined interior. Comes with tweezers for easy splinter removal. (Black gesso, Stone Effects, Walnut Stain Distress paint, Ground Espresso Distresss Crayon,Tim Holtz Stars Adornments, Prima Rust Effects paste, chain)

Gus is forever grateful for your visit to the showroom today, and hopes he has been helpful in showing you a coffin that fits your needs. I hope it won't be too long before I have more Halloween goodies to show you! Thank you for your visit today!

I'm sharing with these challenges:
Shopping Our Stash-SOS318 - Your Favorite Season That would be fall and with that, comes Halloween. Old stash includes silver thread, cat food box, chain and old Tim Halloween stamps.
Deep Ocean Challenges-Challenge #162: "Fave Color Combo" Love all colors, but am particularly drawn to dingy neutrals with an occasional drift toward purple!

Hugs and Blessings!

  1. LOL! Your dancing skeleton is so excited to be free of his coffin. And to top things off, he is making the best of the situation by becoming an agent selling "mobile homes" for anyone interested! I like the way he shows off each "coffin-abode" by detailing the awesome colors, textures, and comfort levels. It's obvious the wildlife cherishes these crafty places lodgings, as Mr. Spidy has been there long enough to claim his territory and those starfish enjoy feasting on whatever they find on the other! Fabulously imaginative, Sara - thanks for sharing your talent! hugs, de

  2. Such a great post! I love the way you presented this and your coffins are exquisite! I think I "need" that coffin die now after seeing all your wonderful creations! Love this post!!

  3. So delightful Sara Emily -- Did you bury an empty coffin or is that skeleton an escape artist!!

  5. Sara Emily - or should I say Gus - I LOVE the new line of coffins! I'm amazed at the unique finishes each one has - the one with chains would be great for a Vampire - LOL! Your skeleton is so adorable, too. You've done an amazing job with textures, as always! Hugs :-)

  6. Hi Gus and Sara! Great design, amazing texture and very funny ! X

  7. Ha, ha, ha Sara, Gus must be doing a roaring trade with the fabulous coffins! I love the stone one but think I would have to go with the rustic one, I just love the chains and a new pair of tweezers would be just the job for getting rid of any splinters, or doing a bit of craft work! These are such fun, I do love your sense of humour!!! Hugs, Anne xx
