THe LEAVES oh the leaves!

If you know anything about the Midwest you know we love our FALL colors! I guess that could be said for any place that has Maples, Fire bushes and Tulip trees etc. I took this photo from my front door. Just love it! It is my favorite time of the year. I love anything pumpkin, squash, persimmons, apple cider and well all those great fall colors. I can't forget Halloween. I almost have our costumes ready. Should be a great time.
So go grab a jug of cider and take it all in.

Toesies Woesies

I don't think I have shared my latest pair of shoes. I am one of those people who spends .50 cents on a shirt at the church thrift and then I will pay $100- on a pair of shoes. I have to, horrible feet so that is where my money goes. I had my toe nail procedure on Thursday and WOW it hit me last night. The pain hit me. So I spent today all glassy eyed on pain killer. Who knew this would happen. Anyway I am still wearing flip flops. I hope it heals before the snow comes! :) These shoes are by Alegria Shoes. No one carries them in my area so I ordered online. I want more!!!

Etsy listings

I thought I should list something more artsy after those toes. I am surprised that they do not hurt. But, I did have some kind of reaction to the shots. Just couldn't do anything yesterday. The weather didn't help.

So....I have listed these 3 dolls on etsy and I have 3 more to go. I really enjoyed making them this summer and I have drug them to a couple of shows but now before they are shop worn I hope someone will give them a good home via etsy.
They are all weighted with rice so they can stand on there own. Wool hair. Some vintage aspects on each doll. Until next time....

I know I know TMI

This is what my chubby feet look like after I went to the poditrist for some nail issues. I did get to pick the tape color. Needless to say I will not have any more issues with those nails. I won't be a foot model either. Not too much pain. Yet!

Wanna Trade?

A blogger friend Heather Sleightholm from Oklahoma had asked about the big stuffed pillows that I make and I said let's TRADE! So I got one of Heather's wonderful mixed media paintings from her flapper girl series. "Forever Jeanne". For now she sits on top of a dresser that I have in my dining room along with a folk art piece of carved birds and some of my favorite bowls. I just love having her in my collection. I am living through Jeanne since I would never get a tatoo of my own but love that she has one. Thanks Heather! I love it.
