Isn't it something that it is not what you put under the glass, it all seems to look good together.

Happy Monday Everyone!
Hope your Weekend was Great!
These pictures are the beginning of a new blog post, called "Under Glass".
Barbara and I started noticing on blogs the unique items that are under glass. You know we don't do anything halfway. So we hunted and gathered all the cake plates, domes and cheese trays, we could find. Put anything and everything under glass. The next few days, maybe weeks, I will be posting things under glass. So get a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy the pictures.
These two are the biggest glass dome and the smallest in the store. I love how, even the gold Christmas bead looks like it was meant to be under the little dome. Like a pearl from a oyster. So no matter what you put under these domes, it makes them look special. Because you took the time to arrange it just right. We all pick up at least one sea shell from the beach, display it under a dome or a glass and hold on to that relaxing time, spent at the beach. Set it on your night stand or in a special place so you will notice it daily.

A little bit more of Halloween.
I made this for a swap I was in, and it wouldn't fit in the box. So I got to keep it.

Toot was at the shop for awhile yesterday and I had my camera. We all wanted a girl, and it is getting so long. DD thinks it is bad luck to cut their hair before he is a year old.

One last Summer picture, I think Summer is gone for another year. I don't even want to go to the beach now. So we are planning a trip to the Mountains or Nashville to see the Rockettes.
The reason I had my camera at the shop is that I had another idea....... Through the first of the year I will be posting these pictures. First will be "under glass". For several months now Barbara and I have noticed on our many blog we look at, that there is a lot of things under glass. So we ran with it. Check back next Monday for the first pictures. It is a really good way to use that glass covered cake plate all year.

Last week, when they were getting ready for the Mardi Gras Party, I got out my face paint. I took a class alot of years ago. So be nice. I was going to join the clown unit of the Daughters of the Nile. I look this class and ask my mother in law to make a clown outfit and I now have no time. So I will pull out that clown outfit and try to make balloon animals at the church carnival. Wish me luck!

We had another busy week at our house.
My daughter planned and organized at Mardi Gras Party for a bunch of 13 year olds.
And it was a hit!
Cold but a Hit!
Wouldn't you know that the weather would change and turn cold.
But do you think the 40 + preteens, felt the cold?
No and it was a great time for all.
Happy Birthday Seana and Jarica
Now it is time to clean up. So enjoy the photos while we plan a Harvest Carnival at the church October 31st.

The candy Buffet was my idea and it was a hit too.
Who doesn't like candy?

Don't you love the huge mask made from a dryer box. She painted it and used Christmas garland, from the thrift store. All 9 -cost about $10.00.

This is my little piece of Halloween. The top of this buffet if where the sea shells go in the summer, it's where the Easter chicks go in the spring. With so many people in our house it is hard to decorate for the seasons or holidays, so I have adopted this little spot to spook up.

Happy Halloween!

Good Morning !
Anyone who knows me, knows I love Halloween. I have given adult parties and children's parties,and decorated the porch to be a haunted house, but the one that was the most fun was the savager hunt.
This year, there is too much going on to throw a good party, so I will just decorate alittle.
These two items were made for a swap I joined.
A sweet and sinister swap.
Did I do it?
Does it look sinister?
I also threw in a gummy skeleton hand, for the sweet.
I had the worst time trying to find a big enough head, even had Jenn's husband Bill on the look out. But in the end I think it turned out okay.
So I hope you all are enjoying the cool fall weather. In Alabama we are wet. And rain all day today, again.
It is the perfect day to complete indoor projects.

Ladies,I am a little late in posting but I wanted to let you in on the reason I have been absent from the blogging world lately.

And it being Breast Cancer Awareness month, follows right along with it.

Only a month ago my mother in law, Carol, had a routine mammogram.

She had not felt a lump, she had not been sore, she was not feeling bad, but a lump was detected.

And further testing told us it was Cancer.

They wanted to take off her breast.

Carol had her surgery last Monday.

She came home on Friday, with 4 drain tubes.

Someone in the family has been with her since.

She is doing well, she will heal.

But it by the grace of God that it was time for her to have a mammogram.

Early detection is what has saved her life.

Please, have your mammograms.

Well, White September came to a scheeing halt didn't it!
With the crop 2 Help and my mother in law having cancer surgery I had to put my little blog on the back burner.
And then , when I thought it was getting back to normal, I developed a kidney stone,
So just a few more days and then I will be back up and running.
Please Pray that I give birth to this nasty stone soon.
