Hi everyone! I am joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and Ten Things of Thankful. This week, I am copying Messymimi. Last week, she featured Halloween decorations as her thankful and I thought that was a great idea. I actually didn’t even feel like decorating this year because of losing Phoebe, but I decided Phoebe would not want me to be sad and my husband enjoys the decorations too so I got everything out. For my art, I made collages out of the photos of my decorations to save space.
Department 56 blown glass eyeballs that my mom bought me years ago.
Halloween wreath that I made a few years ago, I also made them for my niece, mom, sister and several friends.
The first house of my Halloween village, my mom bought it for us in 1992.
5. Blue plastic pumpkin my hubby bought me last year because I like blue- it is great to store yarn in.
6. Old bottle I decorated with poison stickers.
7. Pumpkin my friend had a cat lasered on it.
8. Frankenstein, a friend gave to us when she was moving. For the first week he is out, I get startled several times when I see him.
9. This is an older photo, but Spooky posed with my stuffed black cats.
10. Thankful I got to help the great one decorate with Halloween window clings yesterday.
Hi everyone! I don’t usually get to post on Tuesday, but Mom said I can today. I am supposed to see Grammie on Wednesday, I sure hope she brings treats. I love her very much even if she doesn’t. Maybe my Dad will get us some at the grocery store today.
Poor Joanie has to go to the vet for an ear recheck. I tried to help, I deleted the email reminder, but the evil efficient vet place called to remind Mom of the appointment too- they sure are tricky. I am not sure why Mom has 2 carriers out though instead of one.
Today’s word for the #JHC Challenge is Cat- I think we have that covered- MOL! And the winner of the Black Cat giveaway is Brian of Brian’s Home. He has a lot of sisters so I better have Mom add a few more toys.
See you Thursday, I already have my Q poem done- do you?
I thought this book was most appropriate for Rosh Hashanah. Manischewitz, The Matzo Family: The Making of an American Jewish Icon by Laura Manischewitz Alpern tells the story of an immigrant family that started making and selling matzo crackers in 1888, eventually building an empire selling many Jewish foods.Surprisingly, the family has not owned the company since 1991. I am not Jewish, but I love to make matzo ball soup and this is the only brand of matzo meal I will use. Everyone loves my soup, even my little great niece.
Today’s word for the #JHC is Spooky. When I read the list of words for the challenge and saw Spooky listed, I just had to sign up.
I love this photo of Spooky with these stuffed black cats. Spooky was a great sport, always willing to pose for me. My hubby and I miss him so much.
