Good Tuesday morning..I hope your day is off to a great start..it is a bit cold, cloudy and probably rainy as the day progresses..but that is okay..I need to get stuff done at home..like sewing..I have been making stuff at night on the couch..some penny stockings out of an old wool blanket..some penny scarves..have one almost done..will share in another post..but now I need to get the bigger stuff going..anyway..I just wanted to share one of the items I took from my moms home back in June..but didn't take with me till september..she painted this little outhouse scene years ago and it was on the wall right outside the bathroom..well I knew it was going to be tossed and I have always liked it..so now it graces my bathroom..the cat used to stand on the house but not enough room where I have it..
and as you can see there were repairs done years ago on her arm and his leg..they all add to the character of this piece..it makes me smile when I look at it..and thankful that I don't have to use an outhouse to go potty at night..just gives me the shivers thinking about it..now I know why they used chamber pots..
I got this when I went out shopping last week..this was all found at Value village..I don't know what it is about cupcake tins..but I have 4 in my collection now..I loved the "squareness" of this pan..it now resides on my hutch..will use it too when I make cupcakes..
I saw these cute little bowls and thought of my little sisters 3 boys..they would make great cereal or icecream bowls for them..
I also picked up an assortment of christmas boxes..so if I am really lazy this year and don't want to wrap...well this is my answer.:)
I picked this up at Joanns..will be using this in my christmas crafting too..you will have to wait and see what I come up with..
these are those kitty gloves I told you about..their little paws on the fingers glow in the dark...they are so me..so that is why the witches aren't wearing them..they are mine.;)
got this burlap at Joanns...was able to use my 50% off coupon..this will go on the grapevine wreaths with the santa heads I plan on making..see I gotta get crafting...
and last but not least the dollar isle when you are standing at the check out stand at Joanns..well I can't resist those dollar stamps and they are halloween and kittys and witches..oh my..:)
yesterday I had to get some more groceries and picked up some more pumpkins..so I could decorate the other side of the yard..and then the lightbulb in my head went on..I needed to decorate the other side of the house..and as I was driving I was thinking what I was going to use..so this is how it started...
not quite done yet..I still had tweaking left to do..so I kept pulling stuff from the other side and in the back yard as well..oh and from the front yard too..
not a good photo but in the upper left you see my yellow rudebekas by the wheelbarrow..they reside there now..
they are not shown here as I got side tracked burning more weeds with my trusty burner before it got dark..and that one pumpkin that is leaning is now by the kitty..
I LovE!!!!!! how it looks now..it needed to be decorated in the worst way..so now I am happy with how it looks..and life will be so much easier as far as work and weeding goes...
I got my very first big lumina pumpkin ever!!! they are spendy...69 cents a pound..I paid like 3 something for it...love it though..
okay you wanted to see the kitty scarf with me in it..well here you go..I will be wearing this for the month as needed...I got it at hallmark years ago..:)
now for the kitty portion of this post..the two little ones on the back of the couch..and ooeey gooey Stewie is cleaning his sissy and snuggling in for a nap..these two are inseperable..I love it when they are all snuggled up and happy together..just warms my heart and soul to see them happy...
you musn't laugh..this was taken yesterday sitting here at the computer..and sunny likes to sit with me..she is my original blogging buddy..and she stuck her head in my shirt along with her 2 paws and started needling me and loving me..she is such a hoot..she has done this before...apparently being in between my boobs is her safe and snuggly spot..lol..
last but not least..this is the little ones favorite past time..watching the dad man take a shower..cause they know he will get the squeegie and play with them..through the door..
aren't they just the cutest..they make me smile..right now they are running all over upstairs playing with each other..then its nap time..well I am off to get my day started and get the house tidyed up and try to get some sewing done...I hope you all have a wonderful day today..oh I have a huge favor to ask..we are trying to plan our church gals social for christmas and I am looking for a story to read that has you pass things to the left and right..I have a similar story..about the "right family"..but we want something different..if anyone out there has that type of story..would you please email me a firstname.lastname@example.org.. and I also need 5-10 things to ask them that will earn them points..we are doing an auction of sorts..you earn points for the questions you answer and then you can bid on certain items with how many points you have..so I need some good questions...about women..thanks for your help..I know I can count on my blogging buddys to help me out.;)take care and enjoy your day.:)
