Put a little witch in your day!

This was my contribution to a dotee doll exchange.  She makes me smile! The teachers dressed up at school today.  I of course was a good witch...the same costume I have worn for years! I love it though! Everybody needs a little witch in their day.

Happy Halloween!

MIxed media collage
The air turned chilly
The wind is swirling
The leaves are a flutter
Dark is coming early
Pumpkins are grinning
Halloween is here!

I am still working on BBD Halloween box....hope to be finished by this weekend!  See the little black bird on the pedestal?  It is a pin and needle keep designed by Clara and I.  We made half a dozen for our sampler guild to sell at "Barn Full of Quilts".  We had lots of fun making them and spending time together on a Saturday morning.

Dogs of deployment

He couldn't be any cuter could he?  For once in my mother's life she kept something a complete surprise!   She drove up in the driveway yesterday morning with this precious 6 month old baby.  She had had him 3 weeks and not a peep about him!  You should know that she has three dachshunds herself at home and we have two.  We now have three!  Her dogs are all black and tan and our three are all reds.  Let me tell you the story behind my three....  Blue is 11 yrs old and has been with us since he was just over a year old, Scooter is 7 and has been with us since he was almost one, and new Burlap is 6 months.  Each one of the dogs belonged to US Marines, based out of NC, who had to give up their dogs because of deployments.  I have an aunt, a soft heart for dogs, who lives and works near the base and enjoys helping military soldiers find good homes for their pets.  In some small way, I feel like my family is paying our debts to these men and women who serve our country.  So who ever you are...your dogs are being well loved and it is our pleasure to give them a home.
