Good Morning everyone. Can you believe how dark it is getting earlier and earlier? It reminds me of the years we lived in Alaska and the cold-dark that spread clear into the day there. Isn't it breathtaking? This was taken in the middle of the day near the shortest day of the year. You are overlooking at inlet actually. The point is so high that you are above the clouds. In the summer, when it's clear, you can see the bush planes flying back and forth. They would be so close to you.
I can't wait for the time change. There is just something about the goodness of the sun whether it's warm outside or not.
I can't but help feeling sentimental. Some days are like that. This week especially as my husband and I celebrated our 14th anniversary on Tuesday.
Oh, my Heavens we look so young. If any of my daughters wanted to get married barely after their twentieth birthday I would say "forget it, that's way to young". It's a miracle, that as being as young as I was, my heart was wise enough to know what kind of a man my husband would turn out to be. He amazes me more and more each year and our marriage gets better and better too.
I am so blessed.
There has been some new fall decor added to my mantle. Isn't it so cute?
We have two large windows on either side of the the fireplace and recently she has decided that she likes to sit up there to keep watch.
I don't decorate for Halloween much. My kids came home from school after I had put some things out and exclaimed "it doesn't look very spooky". I admit, it doesn't. Small and simple has always been what I have done. But, the most important thing is that you really love what you have, and I do.
This little Halloween Miss is very special to me. I saw her last year at the shop we love to go to on the Oregon Coast and passed her up even though she was really what I wanted. This year, I wasn't letting her go. I was so happy that they had her for sale again.
Years ago I picked up this pottery pumpkin. I always set him on a luminary candle stick.
I fell in love with this spell book I saw on some one's blog. It was a tutorial so I made my own.
All of it got put on my mantle along with the volunteer pumpkins that grew in my garden and the witches broom I made from my dried raspberry plants.
The G.W. primitive house is going to be so fun for all the holidays.
My dear sweet Tula. I saved you for last because you are the best and my favorite. I made her last year as an ornie. She was such a fun thing to see come to life. Tula was also one of the first primitive crafts I had ever made.
This year, I seam ripped a few of her bottom stitching, pulled some stuffing out, and made her a make-do.
If you have made it to the bottom of my post I applaud you. I just have one last thing to share.
Baby has been wearing her Halloween costume non-stop. At night, she sleeps with it by her side. I thought it was funny to see a frog playing video games:)
Only a few more days to go sign up for this massive wonderful giveaway Brenda is hosting. It's going to be a great day for a lot of lucky ladies.
Truly wishing you all a wonderful Fall weekend. I appreciate all my wonderful friends who visit me and comment so faithfully. If it weren't for all of my followers and friends, there would be no
