A little do it yourself project

Leah is modeling some vintage H Bar C wool western pants. I've had them for years. Green for the season. You can get a glimpse of my Halloween display, sorry I didn't photograph it. However you can see why I didn't. The wall arrangement wasn't pleasing to my eye.

I really wanted to use the old beehive boxes that I had gotten years ago from my friend Irene. A symmetrical arrangement was what I had in mind this time, even though the boxes are not the same size. Hanging them even at the top did the trick.



Poor Leah, she got roped into helping me, but I couldn't have done it without her!



I devised a clever way of keeping the plaster dust off of the floor and things below while drilling, cut a paper plate in half! It worked well. Of course you have to be careful not to tip it over.


Ok I think it looks better, now to decorate for the season. (this is the fun part!!)


Pete the Pup was rescued in pieces and strung back together.


I love the red books. They make a great backdrop.

I have already changed this arrangement to make it even more Christmassy and it still could use more bling. I'll post an update. I want to remove the faux lavender flowers from the top. I wish I had my little white trees, but I don't think any of my trees made the move with us. This could be a good excuse to go thrifting for replacements.

If I were a rich man


I'd buy this darling ├ępicerie. An ├ępicerie is a French grocery store, the old fashioned kind. What is so amusing to me is that it is called Epicerie Moderne! That is so sweet.

Hard to believe fall is almost half gone

My summer vignette. Soon to be replaced with wintry greens.
I'm missing my container garden already. I spent a lot of time on it, and now the bunnies and pots are almost all put away, snug for winter.
More time for browsing on eBay, this beauty turned up. Her clothing is sweet, but inappropriate.
