Okay, I'm a little more revitalized...
Had a chance to catch up on a few things and hang out with Allie while the guys took MJ to the Husker game Saturday night. They had a blast. Of COURSE they did! It was Andrew's first game and he, too, has become a true husker. As if there was a choice around this house...
Weather is gorgeous today and the trees are beginning to change colors. Two more weeks and they will be in full "bloom". I can't wait!!
I wanted to show you a few things I have done lately....getting in the mood for October....which is approaching quickly. I *love* October. It's my favorite month of the year. I'm a Fall lovin gal, and watching the outdoors come alive with color in October makes me so deeply happy.
Oh yes, here is my pumpkin made from an old book. Sassy started it. She got the idea from Country Home and talked me into making one. Here's my version. I love him so!! It's SO simple to make it's a little embarrassing. Simple can be good.
This would be a super project for children. Yup. It's the black and white that I'm so drawn to...big surprise!!!
This one started out totally different than it ended up. I think I like it enough now. 3 pumpkins later. Oh well. I have always loved the white pumpkins (actually gourds I think) and this year they seem to be everywhere. Now I am going to be on a hunt for the blue ones. Wow, maybe they'll hit my neck of the woods in about 5 years!
Love how it sits on a pedestal.....a bit more attention grabbing that way.
This next shot is the top of the pumpkin....which I had to show you. I wanted ribbon on the stem, and now it looks like the pumpkin has a little doo-rag! At least it's polka dotted, right? Oh, and a glittered collar.
Guess what? I gotta tell you I'm doing an addition to the Bellaween Kit for Paper Bella ! There have been so many long faces because the first one sold out. I listened to everyone's advice and did a new one. Woo-Hoo!!!!
Want the bella's want, the bella's get!
So, if you got the first Kit and think Mr. Jack needs a frightfully cute partner, well you're in luck! And if you didn't get in on the fun the first go round, here's your chance to jump in!
Trixie the Treater can't wait to meet you! I will have more info in a few days so stay tuned!
She's a cutie--no trickin'...
