Halloween Merchandising

Isn't this Brag Monday?


If not, it should be, because
  I just couldn't wait to show you what 
my daughter put together.


She's a Visual Merchandiser for a LARGE book store
and came up with this
FuN
Halloween Display

How did she make that
Witch
Look So Good?
 
She Told Me How
She Started With A
 Styrofoam head from Sally Beauty Supply
Decoupaged it with Book Pages
Painted a Fanciful Face
Then gave her a Glamorous Outfit

She's So Creative
(even if I do say so myself)
Bragging Rights!


Do you enjoy seeing all the Holiday Displays?

I Sure Do!

Sunday Morning - Psalm 141:2



Prayer

A place of intimate petition
where we look beyond the natural
 and see the "Kingdom of Heaven"
at work in every need


A place of Intimacy
filled with
Joy  Love  Delight  Passion
and 
Worship


A place where we can learn to 
overcome evil with Good


A place where we recognize 

His Goodness

Pumpkin Still Life


I hope your Autumn is as wonderful as ours


Not that we're doing anything Special 
We're just enjoying the Season


and the inspiration all around us.


I mean, how many "Fall" Magazines are there ... 
and who's counting?

 We Love them All!


All rhymes with Fall
I think I'm a poet.

Maybe, what's inspiring me 
will inspire You too!



PS:  By the way, the Gray Pumpkin ... I only painted it because it was almost gone.
It's probably best to paint an "artificial" pumpkin like Sweet Paul's.
(Let's just say ... the life expectancy goes way down once you paint a "real" one)

His 
LOVE 
is
Forever
Unchanging
Uncompromising
 Dependable
Faithful
and True

Accept it
Be still in it
Rest in it
Find joy in it

 then

 You'll be free to
Give It 
to anyone,
regardless of circumstance.

Have A Blessed Day!

Shopping on a Whim

HaPpY
Because, we're Retired


and can go to places like this on a Whim!


It was either this or the BIG Shopping Mall


and in our mind it was No Contest!


This was like a Breath of fresh air
 
 
Just what the Dr ordered


We Shopped, We Laughed, We Got Inspired


 and wished you had been with us


On our Day 
in


Seriously
Maybe next time You can come!


(Buzz was especially happy because I only spent $9.00)

Autumn Garland - A Dollar Tree DIY


Autumn Garland

  
There are entire blogs dedicated to crafting from 
Dollar Stores 
but
This was my First Attempt



Supplies 

One Package of Autumn Table Decorations (From Dollar Tree), Needle, Thread, Buttons (from my stock) & Glue

Assembly
    1. I used a heavy thread to sew a button to the top of each felt leaf - leaving the thread in tact
    2. As I finished each leaf, I slid it down the thread, spacing the leaves approximately five inches apart.
    3. Finally, to secure each leaf to the thread, I put a small drop of glue on the back of each button.

    It only took about thirty minutes


    and looks SO festive on our front porch


    I'm seeing $ Stores in a Whole Different Way.

    How about you?  
    Have you been crafting from your $ Store?

    Just Outside Our Front Door ...


    “Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, 
    it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” 
     - A.A. Milne Winnie the Pooh
     
     
    Gratitude 
    that's how we feel about our front porch
     

    it isn't anything fancy
     
      
    but, it's cozy
     

    and it has the flavor
     
     

    of the life we've shared together



     
    Before


    A sweet reminder
    of the goodness of God.
