Is there any wonder that I am still confused
about the seasons?
about the seasons?
While the Halloween decorations are ready for trick or treaters...
And there's no turning back now, despite signs pointing otherwise...
The weather is thinking about winter....
In the same week we had our first frost,
we had this...
And then a little more of this...
(and, yes, I found more fencing!)
Clearly I was not ready for this as my lawn furniture is still on the lawn.
Note the shivering elephant ear on the right!
While the outside is thinking winter is soon, too soon,
inside I am shooting photos of Christmas ornaments
for my Etsy shop...
This year I am doing things a little different
than in previous years.
I've decided to sell some of my mercury glass ornaments
in sets of three.
I think this is a way to give customers specific colors or designs...
...while keeping the price lower and not giving them
a box filled with ornaments they don't want.
So after spending an entire weekend shooting boxes of ornaments...
...I trashed those photos, then rethought my approach
to come up with smaller collections...
It's more work but much more fun and creative for me and,
hopefully, my customers too!
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Of course I can't let go of the boxed collections entirely...
Do you have any new tricks?
Welcome to this weeks
Cottage Style Party!
It's halloween week and I spent the weekend
with a ton of mini candy bars.
And, yes, I ate a few too many.
I'm hoping to have lots of little
Trick or Treaters
so I don't have to spend any more
time with the candy.
Let's see what you have been up to this week...
This harvest tea is hauntingly boo-tiful!
This is just one of many tables at this tea.
According to Debbie, everything used to decorate
this harvest tea is from Dollar Tree!
Stop by her blog Debbie-Dabble and
check out the raven table!
These carnival glass tea cups are perfect for
this Halloween inspired tea!
Wait until you see the little surprise in
the tea cups! Here's a hint: BOO!
