Crisp Days, Apples, Mums and Pumpkins

 
Another Fall is upon us and it's time to decorate with beautiful jewel colors and find new places to display pumpkins, gourds with lot's of warts and tentacles- scarecrows are fun, too! It's "Chester's" (our garden scarecrow) special time of year!
 
"Patches" (scarecrow) and wreath I created last year greets guests at our front door! 
A fun pumpkin friend Gerry gave me from her garden!
My little wire tree was unpacked today and placed in a new spot.
 Creating watercolor cards and sewing items for the 2013 "Holiday Market on 39th Street" are a few things I have been working on.
 Ruffled tea towel and pot holders. My sewing machine is humming and will show you more as I have (yet) lot's to do!!  
 
 
I baked these delicious (gluten free) "Monster Cookies"--- they didn't last long---- although,
 I did freeze some for a rainy day :)! 
 

 
 I will be happy to email you the recipe, let me know. 
 
Making some shopping bags for the "Holiday Market", too!  


Hope you are enjoying these beautiful fall days and having creating fun projects.

Carolyn
