Mama Turtle and Tree Frog

This time of the year is quite magical around our house. The mama turtles come up from our creepy pond to lay their eggs in my garden. This one found it's way on to our deck. We are expected to get a frost tonight so this might be the last tree frog I see.

It's a start!

I've started Halloween and Autumn decorating. I used fabric with vintage die-cut images to cover a painting. The painting is an abstract woman from behind. It's a moon but not a Halloween Moon! I love the painting but it just doesn't go with my seasonal taste. Those Spooky Trees I got a walmart 90% of after last Halloween. I believe they were 79 cents. Have a Spooky Day all!

Cardinal Climber

Humming birds adore these so do I! They are similar to morning glories in that they also have a star shaped center. They bloom all day though.

Spooky Tree with Ghost Ornaments & Black Cat & extras

I finished the Tree. He comes with 5 ghostie ornaments and a mini black cat tree topper. I think I'll include the jol's too. The mini owl and the acorn container are extras I give with purchases. It's always nice to get a surprise when you buy something. :) Spooky Tree & ghost ornaments are now in my etsy shop.

Our Animal Friends & Harvest Show

This Saturday I'm doing a Harvest Show. I just found out my friend who does animal rescue is setting up too! I'm super excited so I will be donating a portion of my sales to this good cause. Many people are leaving pets behind now when they have to move. This is a big problem in my area.
This beautiful feline has been coming around our home off and on. I now believe he is one of the ones left behind. He is super sweet and if he comes around again I'll take him to my friend where he can find a good home. I wish I could keep him! We can't have pets in our home so he'd have to be an outdoor pet. That doesn't work where we live. He's beautiful and he will be a great friend to someone! Have a great week everyone. :)

Awaiting Autumn not Apples

Yesterday my family and I went to the Apple Orchard. I love this time of year the mornings are chilly and you can smell fall is approaching. They have such a wonderful variety all things Autumn : apples, cider, donuts, pumpkin bread, pies, jams, jellies, harvest wines. I could go on and on. I'm also amazed that the haunted corn maze is already open! Can't wait to take my oldest this year! Last year it was a pirate theme. If you flew over in a plane the maze was a giant jolly roger skeleton! I need a friend with a plane I would have loved to snap some photos of that!
We did manage to go to the lake too. Burrr the water was cold! Kids didn't mind though. Have a magical week everyone! Kids back to school me back to painting!

Not a Leaf

This butterfly looked a lot like a leaf or bark. I was amazed I was able to get so close. I've been a painting fool trying to get enough done to do a Harvest Show. I'll post some pictures soon and everyone can tell me what you think. I feel like I need double what I have done. Have a magical weekend everyone!:)

Halloween Mini's & More Fall Fun

These are the Ghost ornaments which will hang on the Spooky Tree I'm trying to finish. The black cat will still on top of the tree. The acorn gives you an idea of the size.
The Spooky box is from Hallmark and was an early Halloween gift. I love it! It says 4
creepy sayings and my kids are spooked by it.
I keep my Winifred Witch inside which I was thrilled to win on ebay. I got her for $5.70 including shipping. Bringing back a childhood memory priceless!
The baby boo pumpkin I had to pick something ate the other one. I have mums blooming and yes that maple leaf was on the ground!
