Deciding on Yarn is Easy or Hard




Halloween decorating continues.

Owl



I think I'm almost finished with the ghosts and goblins.



Boo!



Including kitchen towels!


Kitchen



Halloween is fun around here.
There is the annual block party.
We all meet at one house with our candy in tow.
We have pizza, hot dogs and drinks of all kinds
while we give candy to the kids and tell them how great they look.


Happy Halloween


In family news,
my BGD (Beautiful God Daughter)
announced that they are expecting.
She and her Knight decided they didn't want to know if baby is a girl or boy.
That makes deciding on yarn for a baby afghan easy, 
or hard depending on how you feel!!


Baby Afghan


So I decided on all the colors of the rainbow in their brightest!

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Good For A Giggle





Time to decorate for Halloween!



Henry Higgins and Eliza Boolittle




Henry Higgins and Eliza Boolittle have come out of hiding.
They are always good for a giggle.



Ghost



Ms. Ghost has taken her place on the balcony.


Witches Spells



There's even a witch brewing up a spell or two in the atrium.
Maybe she has a spell for chasing the summer away!



Halloween Mosaic



Time for a break!
A piece of cake ...

Scare The Summer Away

The closest full moon to the September equinox is called the Harvest Moon.

Native Americans call it the Corn Moon,
a time to celebrate the abundance of the earth
and harvest their fields of corn.

It's a time of great celebration, dancing and food!

I brought out my Corn Maiden to celebrate the harvest
and the coming of Fall.



Corn Maiden



She is telling the stories of the harvest to her children.

Fall Corn Maiden



One of our local weathermen suggested 
the whole town should decorate for Fall and Halloween
and maybe that would scare the summer away!

With the help of my little corn maiden,
I'm taking that advice.


Hello Fall
Quirky Owl from West Elm




Pumpkin Spice
Mug from Fiesta



Wishing YOU well and much joy!

It's Looking Like Fall






It's looking like fall ...
inside the house.



Fall Flowers



Fall Bouquet


And, outside the house
(even though the temps are still in the 90s).

Wreath



Getting Ready for Fall



I keep hoping the fall decorating will make me feel cooler!


Fall is Coming!

In a further attempt to make myself feel "cool",
I'm making this:


Hooded Poncho


Hooded Poncho

The yarn may look familiar.
I made a scarf from the same color-way.
I love how Scarfie by Lion Brand feels
and it is easy to work with. 
You can't beat patterns from Mama In A Stitch.

Whenever fall decides to arrive, I'll be ready! 


Hooded Poncho

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Try To Remember





After ten days of cloudy weather.
today the sun is shining.
The light is changing to the wonderful light of Autumn.

Swallowtail



The spicebush swallowtail made an appearance 
on the lantana in Musashi's Garden. 


Swallowtail



I found a lovely collage on FB that included some of the lyrics to
Try To Remember.


Swallowtail


I'm aging myself I'm sure when I say I remember
Harry Belafonte signing this lovely song.

Swallowtail


Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.

Spicebush Swallowtail



A little over a year ago this is what it looked like around Twisty Lane.
I send thoughts and prayers to the good folk in North Carolina.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!
