This little gal lost her gazing ball to the heavy winds, but she still looks cute sitting among the pumpkins....this is something I saved for myself from the hundreds of items hubby and I made for craft shows in the past....Click on the picture and you can see her better...She says,"Do you see what I see?"

Oh my! Today is the last of October, 2010. Can you believe it? Tomorrow we will be able to say that Christmas is next month! Really, where has this year flown to???? I had so many things to accomplish and I did accomplish a lot on the list, but I had hoped to accomplish everything! Next years list will start at the top with those that did not get done this year!

I am a bit late getting this on today and here is why....I finished my project of these two little end tables. They are to go to Chazy, NY for our daughters Christmas present. WOO HOO! I always feel so good when promised projects are finished....I hope she will like them.

I plan to do a coffee table for myself for my next project with mosaics!

It is dark and bitter cold today....I wonder if we will get many little ghosts and goblins wanting treats?
Well, we are ready...

Many years ago, I fell in love with this Jack-O-Lantern candy can...there is a tiny chip in the lid where Miss Allie, one of our precious granddaughters, dropped it and then promptly burst into tears because of the chip...of course she got lots of hugs and kisses and her tears wiped away. I told her the chip added to the cuteness, or something to that effect to soothe her. She is almost sixteen now and she was maybe four when she dropped the, that chip is very precious to me.

My hubby has a sweet tooth like no other! Really. We were at Costco yesterday and he went scouting for the Halloween candy. I always have him choose because he buys more than we could ever use, so he can eat all the left over candies! lol! So the kids get good candies from our house!!

And this little vignette has a witch candle from Julian, California. Julian is a cute little town above San Diego in the Laguna Mountains. Our youngest daughter went up there many years ago and knowing how much I love candles, she brought this darling candle to me....I wish I had captured her face as she is smiling and cute. She gifted me the little lamp that holds tea lights and the card just finished it off from my oldest granddaughter Adrianna way out in California, this year. The card will be saved to be added next year in a little display.

Have fun tonight and Happy Halloween!!
