Halloween is on the way

So I just can't resist getting things going in the decorating area for a frightfully good holiday. Here's where I am so far.
  1. Swag over fireplace
  2. Fall village out
  3. leaves sprinkled on entry table
  4. created Pumpkin Head portraits....
What's that you say?
Yes I said Pumpkin Head Portraits. Look at these beauties. They are going to be hung in black frames over a set of bookcases with a swag over them that reads "BOO"
So what do yall think?

Frankly My Dear It's An Arts & Crafts Show

What do y'all think?
I've finished the Cinderella Castle painting for my super travel agent. And I created a new logo for them too. As a "thanks for putting up with my Disney Compulsive Meal planning Questions and being super patient with my what time is it if a train leaves Disney and four passengers have two Mickey Bars at bus two" type of bazaar questions. Any way, here's what I came up with.

Well I've been invited to participate in an Arts & Crafts Show at Stately Oaks. Stately Oaks is the Plantation from Gone with The Wind.

There's a little one room school house behind the Plantation home and that's the spot I'll be showing my work at.

So I've been busy preparing all kinds of southern treats like pecan pie and canned tomatoes. Of course they are all on paper. Maybe one day I can do these and actually have my husband try them. He can look at these while we eat a fudge popsicles for now. My mother has been wood carving for them at different events for years, or as we with descendants from the hills of Kentucky say, " Whittlin Wood". I call it carving wood, I've been de-hillbillied for years. :) Well mostly... I have my fall off the wagon moments where I let a "What do yall think?" slip out in a meeting at Coca-Cola.

The event is November 14th &15th and if things go well I'll be teaching classes that day. So my mother will luckily be able to keep an eye on my art and track the reactions to my work.
