Prettifying with Pumpkins

I'm not a huge Halloween decorations kind of person. I don't like the scary stuff. I tend more towards lots of bottles and potions (and a couple ghosts, of course) kind of fare. My mantle shows this year's Halloween 'laboratory'

that makes me grin every time I catch a glimpse of it. I'm also in love with the time-less velvet & rhinestones witch. I made a costume a few years ago that catches my alter-ego perfectly and warms my heart whenever I think of it.

My Forest Friends

I live in a forest.

Well. . . not quite - but I do have over an acre of forest in my backyard and across the road, just like many of my neighbors here in the Ozarks. Nearly every time I look out a window or venture outside I see the wonders of some beautiful creature looking back at me.
