Marla pie!
 Scarlet cutie pie!

and Seraphina kitty cat!

such fun!!!
and did you notice these?  soo cute!   so simple!   seen on pinterest...

I had hubby cut the curves off two Shepard's hooks.  Then I cut 2 holes in each pumpkin, alternating sides.. slid them over the poles, and filled them with small mum plants!  then I cut holes in the bottom of two small plastic pumpkins and stuck them on top as finales!  I love them!  
okeedokie.. this was just a quick touch base.. I need to go take a shower so I can watch the debates.. 
should be painfully interesting as I cant stand either of them.
I'll be blog hopping in the morning!!
til then.. toodles!

a batty little quicky craft..

Something easy peasy and only takes a couple minutes.    I saw this on pinterest.. so I cant take credit for it.   But it looks so cool at night when the light is on!  

All you have to do is make a little bat pattern and cut it out of black paper.  I would have used construction paper if I had had some.   Then just cut them out, put some rolled tape on the front of them and stick them inside your lamp shades!

 I got carried away and put them on three shades in the living room..  might be cute to tie a thread to one and have it hanging below the shade!  I may have to do that myself, since I just thought of it now.  

Anyways...  that's all for now..  just wanted to share that with you.    and, yes.. I have Halloween out now.  Just inside.   I haven't done outside or the porch or my craft room yet either.   And, the skellies are still in their closet.  but I was thinking of bringing them out this weekend.  we'll see!  anyways.. have a great weekend bloggy friends!

Is it time yet? is it too early???

Happy September 1st!!
I had been dying to do some Halloween crafting.  I was on my way home from our lake vacation and my friend Brenda even before I got home to see if she was available to play the next day and she was!  Brenda's one of my besties and she loves Halloween too.  I always love when I find someone that loves it as much as I do and goes over the top with decorating.   Makes me feel normal!  LOL!!  (I am so not normal..  lol!)   

So the next day she came over and she and figgy and I spent a few hours playing with wool and had a lovely afternoon chatting and creating!  And she took me to lunch at our local little ice cream  hamburg joint!

heehee.. isn't figgy adorable?  he is never far from me when I am at home.  He is in fact sitting right in front of me on my desk right now blocking me from my tea.. darn it!

So this is what we made,  pumpkin girls and their black cats.  so cute!

This one is Brenda's.  I liked the nose on her cat better then the pompom I had on mine so after she left I kept playing around with mine and changed it up some.

This is how it ended up!  I made cute little woolie flowers.  I think they turned out really cute....  Now I cant wait to decorate for Halloween. 

soooo.. do you want to know how obsessed I am?   a girl on instagram posted a couple pics of items she found at the Christmas tree store.  as soon as I saw them I knew I had to go there the next day.  I woke up thinking about them... and was so tempted to take the morning off to go get them!  but I was good and worked through the day and then made a beeline straight there after work!   The Christmas tree store is a little over an hour away, but so is every where else I go!  lol!  I'm so glad I went.. I love these things!  and they are huge.  the issue now is..  where in the heck are they going to go?   LOL!!
Its September 1st.. do you think its too early to start decorating for Halloween?  I was going to wait til next weekend and even thought that might be too early.  I was going to clean my craft room and the upstairs this weekend.. but now I'm thinking maybe I would do that the other way around....   hmmmm...  what do you think??  
I think I have a ton of cute halloween stuff and the sooner it comes out the sooner and the longer I can enjoy it.  
yup.. thats what Im thinking...
okeedokie..   gotta go.. 
have a great day!
