What's in Bloom!





I know it's still Spring but it sure feels like summer here. Wishing everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend! I got my self tanner so I won't scare anyone at the lake.

Some new Wips


I've been whipping up some new Wips! I've got some apples, ghosts and cat ornaments cooking. I also decided to make a few for the 4th of July. I've got an Uncle Sam and maybe I'll do a couple stars too. I'm in full Halloween mode with all the JOL's.
I'm spending alot of time in the yard too! I also was summoned to the lake this weekend. No I'm not ready for the lake I know it's still cold. I'm going to need some self tanner because I am ghostly white right now. I don't want to scare anyone!
Oh and here's a new MHA Treasury I made!

It's never too early to Haunt your House


I was playing around with crackle finish and this is what happened. I plan on making a few more of these maybe a Witch and JOL. I was window shopping for Ghosts on Etsy and decided to make this Haunted Treasury. Happy Haunting!

Jacob's Ladder


This is a variegated form of Jacob's Ladder. A woodland plant that grows in shade to part shade. After a ton of rain it's finally sunny here. I'm planning on dividing and planting all weekend. Wishing you a wonderful weekend too!

Spiders our are friends as long as they are outside!

Happy May Day and Morel Mushrooms



Nothing says Spring like Morel Mushrooms. To find out more check out the Michigan Morel Festival
I do not suggest anyone who does not know 100% what a Morel Mushroom is to go frolicking about picking wild mushrooms! I think everyone knows I enjoy making paper mache mushrooms. I've never made a Morel Man but I might now! Happy May Day everyone and have a magical weekend!
