Now in the first photo, the lamp is for my one Daughter Chas, I am going to do a mosaic  the top and bottom of the lamp I sprayed painted it a hammered black, it is so great looking. And the child's chair is my Daughter Heather's I am going to paint it and then do a  mosaic on the back and seat. In the bottom photo the blue green chest is mine and I am going to paint it a creamy white, along with my duck wire basket , not sure what to do with my wooden tool box. Oh and the small green curio cabinet I am painting it  what else, a creamy white,  with the back  I am decoupage scrapbook paper on it or fabric, what ever I find that I like the best.

This floor mirror I am not sure what color I am painting it, but the bottom of it I plan on doing a mosaic on it. I have plans to put it out in my garden somewhere for yard art. I also have two wood chairs to do, and my two pillow shams to finish and finish the knitted throw.  So that is about it, so far.  I will let you all know when I get one done and take a finished photo of it. I really need to be pushed, or I will get lazy about it. You know.. there is always tomorrow...  lol;  Well with the holidays fast approaching I really need to get it in to high gear. 

I have been looking at pumpkins and wow they are not cheap, almost four dollars for just one med sized one. I am going to plant some next spring so I can have my own. I am going to really have to do some hunting for a good buy I guess. Or buy some fake ones.  Is there a pumpkin shortage, is that way they are so much to buy....  I mean  they don't cost that much to grow, do they?  Am I being silly about it?  Yea I guess I am, oh will  you know I will buy some any way.  Ok enough of the pumpkin crisis.

Does any one remember the post about my fur babies eating my Mums?  Well I took some photos to share with you, I warn you it is really shocking and sad. So if you have a week tummy then turn away now.

Well I warned you. this is all that is left of them. I feel so bad for the two rust color ones that are left.  They look so lonely. Don't they. I will have to go and find some this weekend, and hope they don't play with the new ones. I need to put up a fence to keep them out.  hey would it be bad if I put up a electric fence...  no ok maybe that is a bad idea.  I hear that duct tape is good for all things, how about that.......  no  can't do that either.. oh well darn. I will find some thing legal to do.  lol  wink wink.. 

I will say good night then, I want to thank you all again for leaving wonderfully sweet comments. I treasure each one and all of you. Have a great week. Have fun and play. God Bless;

Hugs;

I don't know a thing about growing pumpkins, so I just buy ceramic ones.

You have so much work lined up that now I have to go take a nap!
