It seemed a fitting time for a mini whirlwind tour of our living room, before the autumn decorations are replaced by winter ones.
Harper Ann found me that owl at the leftovers of a friend's garage sale. He was painted in 1975, by someone for someone if the markings on the underside of the base are to be believed. And I do. Believe them I mean.
The papier-mâché skull mask was meant to be a temporary Halloween decoration. Tanner, Tucker's girl, was looking for a project so I gave her some old book pages, the mask and modge podge and she went to town. It is so perfectly detailed with layer after layer of carefully chosen words. She took weeks to do it. I've decided to make its home on the wall permanent.
I took that last tree picture earlier this week. Now there are only a handful of leaves left on the trees and the grass is starting to dull to a winter gray green. Bring on the snow.
I've been working on some decorations for our Comfort and Joy themed Christmas.
Some crafty projects will be posted here shortly. Until then, enjoy the final days of autumn!
