One Down...A Billion To Go!

YAY! One project completed!
I have finished the second set of candles. They have turned out much better than I hoped. These will be a great addition to my Halloween Collection. They're going to look great when they are set up! Without further ado.....

What do you think? Not bad for a first time, huh?

I have sewn the second bunny together (the material was cut at the same time as the first one). I like the way these two materials look together. I have some stuffing to do and then put the pieces together. These things are just too cute. They have also inspired me to make my own pattern. I have worked out the size and shape and some of the details. Now I have to create the pattern so I can cut the material. I think the first one will be something 'soft'....maybe velvet or suede?? Maybe even a 'teddy bear' fur. Not sure yet, the ideas are still floating around my head.

Bunny No. 2

And NO.....FrankenDora is not complete. It has aggrevated me to the point of procrastination. I just have to sit down and do it. Yes, I procrastinate (I know, it's shocking)...and when I don't like something it only gets worse. I have aptly named this sits in the corner staring at me like some black and white movie monster. You can't help but to look at it but you feel a little scared at the same time. I'm just waiting for it to moan it's displeasure at being incomplete. I have my motivation to complete grand daughter asks about it everytime she sees it. Her little face lights up like a christmas tree when she spots this hidious, evil, mocking pink dress! Aahhhhh! I really dislike Dora. Oh well, time to suck it up and get the stupid thing finished. My grand daughter will be visiting on Saturday. Wish me luck! Send me some good vibes so I can conquere the FrankenDora!  LOL!

I have found my future house! I came across this amazing little house on the Tiny House Blog. They have a lot of really cool houses (tiny, of course). But this one just screamed my name. This house is SO me! It reminds me of Hansel and Gretel...not their house but the Witch's house! I can so see this house sitting in the middle of the forest. Surrounded by tall, dark, forbodding trees. Wrapped in ivy with an old wrought iron fence...the gate half hanging off. A cobblestone sidewalk leading to the front door. The forest creaking and moaning in the light of the full moon...a big eyed owl the door slowly creaks open you hear the most awful of sounds..."Hey Y'all Come On In"!! HaHaHa - had ya going! (I hear banjos).

The man who makes these houses can be found at Rusticway. You should give them a look. They really are neat little houses. And the paragraph above should give you an idea of what I like and how my brain works (big cheesey, evil grin slowly spreading across my face)....But can't you see the forest? hhhmmmm?

Have a Fantasitc Night!


OMG!! I just realized I have another stalker! Yay for stalkers!! ;)


  1. Wow! The candles are FANTASTIC! They would look just right in that crookedy little house.

  2. Ooooo!!! They would, wouldn't they? On a dark, stormy night! Like the one we are having now! LOL
