I hope all the ghouls and goblins in your life get more treats than tricks!


Hmmm it is such a big decision---big orange pumpkin or small orange pumpkin?
trekking through the maze of pumpkins.

"see mine---I'm so proud!"

You gotta love orange---this time of the year!

Thought I would share some of my pumpkins around the house. I keep meaning to get outside and take some Autumn photos, but every time I have some time, it is a gloomy rainy day.
Although today it is a gorgeous day, so I will be sharing outside photos later.

I have to start out this fine Monday morning by thanking all who have left such sweet comments and all who have visited my shop. This has been quite a journey so far, and as long as I have this desire to create, and what I make, makes people smile, I will be on this journey for awhile.

Okay--back to the pumpkins. The one in the photo above was a find one day while I was out with Abby. How can you pass up a PINK pumpkin? Love it (and so does a certain little girl who loves pink)

This beauty is sitting in an old iron stone wash basin on my coffee table.

Love love love the color.

These two sit on my favorite table in the entryway of my house. I'm a sucker for white pumpkins and every shade in between!
All the orange pumpkins are outside. We picked those up yesterday with the kids. We usually get to the pumpkin patch to pick our own, but this year we were short on time. We picked up a bushel of apples and our pumpkins from our favorite farmers market yesterday. And I took a few photos of the kids which I will share later this week.
In the mean time, I'm off to work downstairs in my studio. I have an order to pack, Silver Bella swaps, an apron to work on and posie pockets to create!
Good thing I'll be busy this week, my girls left this morning for outdoor school. They will be gone until Thursday! Doesn't that seem like such a long time? I miss them already!(sigh)
Hope you all have a beautiful Fall Monday!

It is time........

The Posies are ready!
It has been a long time coming but, it is FINALLY here!
Hope you enjoy what you see!

I have a new and final (no more postponing, I pinkie swear) opening day for Posies on Parade!
October 19th, 11:00am eastern time.

I'm frantically taking pictures of all the things I have made and uploading them. It is very time consuming but I am enjoying the process very much.

I am still hoping to have more time to make more things, I have tons of ideas in my head. If they aren't done for opening day, then they will be added soon there after.

This has been a long time coming. I have always had a dream to do something like this, to be able to make things and share them with whoever falls in love with them.
I have had a lot of encouragement along the way to coax me out of my shell. David is my number one supporter, the one always by my side who has pushed me along through every step. My kids are always telling me "I can do it!" Cammy, and all her sweet words and listening to all my doubts, and Hope, where would I be without all her amazing ability to design my web page and logo, and for all her advice?
My parents have always encouraged me to reach for my dreams and not be afraid.
Each and everyone of them inspire me everyday and I love them!

So this is it! The big day is approaching quickly, and I must go and get back to work!
The 19th will be here before I know it!
