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.

I made this for a swap I was in, and it wouldn't fit in the box. So I got to keep it.

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!

Wouldn't you know that the weather would change and turn cold.
The candy Buffet was my idea and it was a hit too.
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.

So I hope you all are enjoying the cool fall weather. In Alabama we are wet. And rain all day today, again.

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.
