Scarey witch holding Miss Bumble Bee!

I was a witch again for the 3rd year in a row. I need to change that and vow to work on dressing up as some thing else this next year. So here is Hattie Jane with me (grandma) visiting her on Halloween night. So today Ive been working on taking down Halloween decorations and when Hattie gets here on tuesday she will be upset because she made me turn on the lights in the pumpkins while she was here. We even had a ghost that when you clapped your hands the ghost traveled on this cord...Hattie would start clapping even before she got to my front porch. So no ghost. So soon it will be Thanksgiving, so will leave some of the fall decorationg out. I have turkeys everywhere. As I may have said before that I was raised on a turkey farm..Was very interesting. It would be wonderful if every child that was born could be raised on a farm. It is wonderful place to grow up.. Until next time...happy blogging. Sally

She looks so cute. I love putting up decorations and hate taking them down, but I think the kids and grandkids hate it the most.

Hi Sally! OMG she is the cutest bumble bee ever! I miss little kids around for Halloween. We don't get very many visiting at our house.
Thanks for coming over for a visit. The blog shoppe is actually doing really well! I've sold 3 things already! I was doing the happy dance at my house last night! LOL!!! I guess I better get to making more things! Have a great day sweetie!

Hi again,
Well, babysitting is a good thing, but you probably don't get much done then. Sounds like you are already super busy with all of your wonderful painting.
It also sounds like you will have a good project ahead of you with the old photographs, baby shoes etc.
Have a wonderful Monday tomorrow.
Chat again soon,

Hi Sally! Rocky is a Welsh Springer Spaniel and the best dog I have ever had! Now that my son is grown and out of the house Rocky has become my other "son" Someday, I hope I'll be a grandma but until then my sweet Rocky will have to do!

Sally, Thank you for stopping by to visit me. Soooooooooo glad you liked the post to send a card to the soldiers. And GREAT that DH works with the American Legion. Tell him THNAKS for all of us. I feel we really need to keep our soldiers & their families in our thoughts & prayers. They are indeed our FRONT LINE to fight all things that threaten us. After that... it is up to us to protect ourselves & our country.

That Hattie is BEAUTIFUL! The pictures of her at the beach were so precious! We have 5 Grandsons but, NO GIRLS! How is that fair???? NOT!!! Enjoy her she is truly a doll. Have a great weekend & come back to visit soon.

Sally- what a wonderful little girl! Thanks for stopping by my blog. We just found out that our buyers can't close on Monday, throwing a HUGE wrench into everything! I am sorry you had to downsize. The road- I hope you can still fight it. But babysitting must make up for it- just a little? LOVE your paintings! I can't wait to get crafting again.

Hi Sweet Sally...

Thank you so much for visiting my fellow pink rose painter! So happy to see your name again!

I know what you mean about selling things off. I've done that before both out of necessity and because of the need to just CLEAN OUT! I'm so glad you found the deer at such a great price. WOW!

Now...about the drapes...

I made these and they were very simple. I chose linen because I wanted them to fall soft but straight. They have a decent weight to them, too. Anyway, I bought the fabric at Hancocks and I think for both extra wide panels it cost me about $100. I couln't have purchased them for less than $450. They are easy to make just added a header and a pocket wide enough for my rod (plus 1").

Thank you again for stopping in. Always a JOY to see your smiling face. I love your little Bumble Bee and your witch costume made me smile big.

Love, Rebecca

Hello Sally, thank you so much for your nice comment! And I'm happy that you liked Vienna!
I read that you want to change your halloween-dressing-up next year. May be you are interested in my halloween-idea from last year? You can see the photos here:
Here you can see my husband and me dressed up as Oberon and Titania of Shakespeares A Midsummer Night's Dream.
I'm sorry that i haven't translated my posts in English at this time, and the google translation of this Halloween-post is extremely stupid. As I found out the English translation of two sentences showed the opposite result to the meaning in German language: The translater wrote "I personally could not imagine very much a design, at the morbid world of the eccentric Miss Havisham recalls" But what I really wanted to say was: "Of course I CAN imagine such an 'Miss-Havisham'-arrangement!!! It must be very compatible to Halloween!!!"
And it wrote: "...but I was not allowed to makeup a little on the eyebrows" - but the truth is, that I WAS ALLOWED to "paint" the eyebrows of my husband!
Well, may be you are interested in it. But first of all I weant to wish you a wonderful Advent-time! WEarm regards from Austria, Traude
