A Long Week!

Well, glad that week is over! 
I had a root canal on Monday and a (temporary) crown on Tuesday. I had a major infection and it took me all week to recover. I've had dental work done before but this was the worst experience I've ever had. (nothing to do with the dentists - they were great - just the infection and swelling) I'm finally back to eating real food and my face isn't still swollen but I do still tend to also chew my cheek if I'm not careful.

Before my decent into dental hell, I took my red rooster outside with a can of white spray paint.

Gave him a few sprays then treated him to a couple of love taps with some sand paper. I think he looks pretty good!

I did get some stitching done and finally finished my November Stamp. Now I just need to get it and the other November piece ironed, sew on the buttons and get them ready for their frames - should be able to get that done by Thursday.

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things this week!

A Little Fallish

We finally have a little fallish weather moving in. It's cloudy and cool outside this morning - with storms predicted for later today and tomorrow.
Thought I would show a few more fall/Halloween pictures. I'm through with fall decorating except for changing out the Halloween specific pieces for Thanksgiving specific pieces after Halloween.

 Can't remember where I picked up these little fabric pumpkins but I put them under a cloche with some amber lights. (they are on but hard to see because of the lighting - I love these lights that have timers on them!)

 Mr. Too cute for pie is also too cute to put away and stays out all year with the exception of Christmas when I have this area covered in Christmas. The two little pumpkins I think were a dollar at Walmart several years ago - they were orange so I painted them with craft paint. Took several coats - if I did it again I would try spray paint.

 I think this was a Hobby Lobby find.

 Kind of hard to see but there is a string of leaf lights on top of the mantle - more of those battery operated on a timer things! If it gets cold enough to turn on the fireplace I will have to move my pumpkin patch.

Hard to tell, but those lights are little pumpkins.

This cabinet is one of my favorite places to decorate. Again, hard to tell but I have orange lights inside the glass door.

I've already shown all of the outdoor decor but I did add these pumpkins in front.


Working on getting my November pieces ready - this ones just needs an iron and buttons. I will do that when I finish the other one - it's on the qsnap and in progress.

There are a few more pumpkins scattered about - I'll try to get those in with the Thanksgiving stitches.

Have a great week!

Happy October!

Thought I would share a few little Halloween stitches I have around the house.

I don't have a lot of  just Halloween

I tend to stick more to just fall so I can leave them out longer

Most of them I've had for awhile but this one is new this year

I've added a few orange lights

This one has been around awhile! Since 1997!

and the only other newbie for this year.

More fall pictures to come and I still haven't posted pictures of my living room after we finished painting and getting everything back on the walls.

Our weather isn't exactly 'fallish' yet, but it is getting there!
