All Hallows Eve

I know, I know. It's been a while. My only promise is to blog when I have the time and inclination. In an earlier post long ago I tried to explain that the most important thing to me is family ( and I have a quite large one ). So when I'm not busy with family things and out buying, cleaning, repairing and repurposing, I will occasionally throw a blog post up. I do desire to do a better job of posting more often, so we will see how I do.

I love Halloween, I love the fall season. I love the weather.

I made this assemblage to use in my Halloween decorating this year.

I found the wooden divided box at a thrift store. The snake skin and cicada shells were treasures found in our yard.
can you see the dried scorpion in the bottle? It was found that way.

The paper mache skull from Hobby Lobby was embellished with moss, a cicada and a vine crown. I never kill insects for my art. This cicada died of natural causes and was found in our yard.
So until next time, hope your autumn season is fun and fulfilling.

We re-did some displays at Binky la Faye a couple of weeks ago and I am just now getting around to posting pictures.

This is our "potting shed area (just in case you missed it spelled out on the chalk board). The base of our vignette is a primitive zinc topped dry sink ($135) and a tin topped work table (also $135).


This rusty and wonderful toy Texaco Gas Pump sold right away. It went to a bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas.
The framed roses ($34), working vintage fan ($38) and vintage scale ($98) are up for grabs!!

The "cyclone"seed sower ($12.50)
Great old chicken nester ($125)

Wonderful origianl alligator finish on this sweet little doll chest of drawers(45.)
