Saturday Stuff ~

Hi folks!
happy Saturday to ya...
it's HOT again today, and the stinkbugs are out in full-force.
they are nasty little creepy-crawlies that invade
every nook and cranny on late summer/early fall days....
I cannot wait til they all freeze to death.
(sorry, but when you wake up with them crawling on you, find them in your pockets,
medicine cabinet, the folds of the curtains, and everywhere else imagineable,
you'd want them dead too.)
Bonnie sent me this beautiful finish of my Olde Hallow's Eve punch:

her hubby cut a block of wood to match the exact shape of the design,
and then Bonnie used little black beads for the jack's eyes...
great job!!!!

and here is that antique Ribbon Dispenser that I purchased at the show here last week:

perfect for holding my twine, string and ribbons....
(thanks again Joan, you know what I like!)
this will stay in the house studio with me!!

well, I'm battling either a sinus thing, or am coming down with a cold or allergies.
right now it feels like all three....

In Other News:
am excited to share with you that I am now a member of
Early Work Mercantile

please join me on October 1st, by visiting

I'll be listing some finished Hallowe'en Samplers for your amusement....

well I'm off to take some Benadryl,
or Sudafed,
or something to unstuff my head.

p.s. Where's the cooler weather???

Blessings from the Farm,

So sorry to hear you're under the weather. But if you want cooler temps come to Michigan; 41 degrees overnight and a balmy 59 on Sunday. Sorry, no frost yet (although you can see your breath tonight) so hay fever suffers will still suffer. I know, cuz I am one! LOL

Hope you feel better soon,
