Random Fall Happenings

Signs of winter? Really! Already? I'm sad to report that we have had our first snow fall. Yes, the snow stayed in the mountains, but I have a feeling that when I wake tomorrow morning, that might not be the case. We striped the garden tonight, saving the edibles --I think we might get our first frost.

And in order to stay positive and fight my negative feelings concerning winter, I’ve been trying to be festive –pumpkins on the fire place mantle and I made some trick-or-treat candy bags last night.  What do you think?

I still have one more bag to finish before this weekend.  My friend Nicole from Elsa Bags did the screen-prints on these.  Aren’t they fabulous!?  She got the idea from The Graphics Fairy.

Monet is ready for her first trick-or-treating experience –Daddy has already given her candy and now she’s “hungry” for it, like a vampire is hungry for blood

Do you recognize the fabric on the back of the bag?  It’s left over from the custom quilt I finished binding on Sunday.

I'm pleased with how this quilt turned out, along with the message it conveys. I think it's perfect for a young girl's room.

My husband has also been busy creating beautiful things.  Look what he made…

This bowl is going to be perfect for holding Halloween candy this weekend.

Josh also brought home this ceramic box and I am absolutely in love with it.

What do you think?

I think I saved the best for last.

A happy fall, to you and your family!
