~Happy Pink Halloween~



Welcome to the last Pink Saturday of October and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Don't forget to go to Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... for a list of the marvelous pink blogs for this week! Thank you, Beverly, I hope you know how we appreciate what you do for us!

Here are some of my favorite pumpkins made from vintage chenille spreads...I have had them forever.....a black cat I painted upteen years ago and a set of Mammies from Virgina that my dear neighbor brought to me this week as she felt they would be perfect in the "pumpkin patch." Thank you, Pat!

This has been a ho hum week, just quiet and peaceful, nothing much going on... I worked while the rain pounded down and I think those of you that know me, know how I love the rain. It is so calming..... Probably the most exciting thing was the squirrel on the window in the previous post.....

The leaves are really coming down now and our Burning Bushes are starting to turn that burning red. I don't know why I did not take pictures and will tomorrow for a post this next week. They are beautiful....the red is more blue than orange and beautiful against all the golds....

I have been happily working on a custom order with ribbon embroidery...it is getting to be a task finding the ribbons anymore and in the colors I work with and since I love to do this, I am going to have to find a good source.....I have made a few things for eBay, but it is sooooo slow there and with the sad losses of jobs and homes, I think we will just be fortunate for any sales. They say the recession is over....who are they??? And with the over flow in fuels in our storage facilities, THEY ARE UPPING THE PRICES AND THAT INCLUDES HOME FUELS, TOO! Well, no use fussing about what we have no control over....I have such a time learning to "go with the flow!" lol! :-)

Here is a peek at what I did this week for EBAY





The first picture is of a Cake Saver which my hubby patiently painted for me and then I did the little blue bows and roses....all differnt all the way around. This is complete with the footed vintage glass cake plate.....I think it turned out very sweet and dainty.....


And next, a cute little cone bag that is so versatile....fill it with candies, dried posies or silks. Use it as a gift bag for a small present....two gifts in one. And, hang it anywhere from door knobs to shelf hooks for a sweet Cottage accent.




And last, a pair of little sachet booties that I finished this afternoon with some ribbon embroidery.....they make nice little gifts and with a pair, you can keep one and give one...




Thank you for stopping by on your way thru all the pretty pink blogs.....I enjoy all of your comments and wish you could all come for tea and a chat!
Cozy Hugs,
Jil

I love your "cake safe" It is much prettier than any other I have seen. I love that it is soft spoken and elegant. Your cone I think if pretty and very versitile. I can think of several ways to use it and your bootees are very pretty with the hand embroiderey that no one else is doing....I love your pumpkins too. Smiles.......Pauline

Hi sweet friend, I too have to laugh when they say the recession is over, meanwhile the unemployment lines get longer and longer....are they nuts??!! Enough of that, I love what you are doing, I have wanted to do ribbon embroidery but have no idea where to start, perhaps you know of a good book of instructions you can recommend for me. Your tresures are beautiful Jil and don't worry, time heals and we too shall heal this economy and be back on track. Patience my friend, patience, Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Halloween, Char

So pretty as usual! Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Halloween before I get on my soapbox and forget.

On Trick or Treaters...NO! None, ever. Remember, no people here, really. They give candy out down in the village. I guess people come out of the mountains with their kids. We may go down Main Street tonight to see. I thought it was odd that no one tricked or treated here. Now I know.

On the recession being over, LOL! You know what Tuesday is right? Watch the elections in NJ and VA...there may be a chance for some jobs in the future if these go the right way. If not, well...

the majority spin machine is out in full force trying to make people believe things are better because...drumroll...the elections. Sadly, a majority will just continue to be bobble heads and not do the research to find out what is true. so, our babies are being killed far away and the leaders are campaigning so they keep ALL the power. Sounds like an ethical choice, right?

Now nod that head!!! (what did you start to think for a sec there? stop that!)
