Well, the old crows are at it again. Here they got together to celebrate all that is good about the season. And really when you think about it there are so many good things about autumn.....stitting on the porch on a chilly fall night wrapped up in a cozy wool sweater listening to the gentle rustling of leaves and sipping a glass of late harvest riesling....it really doesn't get any better than that! The mayor and his friends are celebrating such moments (he's the one with the black velvet top hat and the host of the party)! This piece measures 25 by 12.5 and is made from a solid maple raised panel. The birds are collaged with decorate papers as well as the background. Couldn't you just see it sitting on a fireplace mantle with a few mini pumpkins on each side of it and a jumble of colorful maple leaves scattered about? It is available in the Honey Girl Studio Shop under "Halloween Goodies and Fall Offerings".

On this collage I used aged (tea dyed) book text, a copy of a vintage photo, markers, gold glitter dots on the wand, a bat cut out from decorative paper and I cut out the paisley design from a piece of decorative paper, there is also a touch of black glitter on her dress. I also used Sugar Loaf stamps and ink.
My goal is to get this collage soldered between two pieces of glass and "chooch" it up with some little danglies and ribbon and have it with a few others available in the Honey Girl Shop under Halloween Goodies by Monday. How cool would one of these be hanging on a door knob or in the middle of a Halloween wreath or even just hung on the wall?!?!

This is the dancing pumpkin girl I made. The body is the size of a standard ATC. The arms and legs are moveable and she is holding a little chipboard sign and double cardstock-backed doll. I used SugarLoaf stamps. The little sign is hand lettered and the sign is secured with multi-colored fibers. Her arms, legs, body, and hat are all edged in a shimmering copper colored ink which is difficult to see in the photo. I'm going to punch a small hole in the top of her hat so she can be hung! Available to purchase at the: Honey Girl Studio Shop

This is a folding chair I painted for a Chinese auction. It was an old typical brown wooden folding chair so I based it in light ivory then distressed it with sandpaper. I then set to work painting the flowers and vines, bees, sun and ribbon on it. I think it turned out pretty good.....

This is what the paneling looks like with the grooves caulked and a coat of Bim on it.....pretty eh?
Second coat of Bim................Having a little lunch break.............mmmmmmmmmmm......Pepsi and ketchup! LOL!
This is the drop above the cabinets with the old wall paper torn off. The next picture is the drop painted with Bim......
Mom and dad looking a little tired....they had been working on the kitchen since 8:00AM, starting with painting the trim and then the ceiling and it was now around 7:30 PM! Long day!
The End of the kitchen wall papering story! It's good for another 7 years!

Sorry about the color in this pic. I had to hold my arms out in order to take a picture of it on me!
