Last of the pumpkins

Got these pumpkins finished up yesterday. I think I am done doing pumpkins for awhile, as I have made so many in the past few months. I should have enough for decorating now.

Made this sheep over the weekend. I used the sheep that I got at a yard sale as a pattern and then painted on the flag.

My Poor Garden

My garden did not do good at all this year. Between not really having the time to take care of it, with doing the bedroom remodel and the rabbits getting into and eating just about everything, we did not get much out of it.
This is all the bigger that my watermelons got, the rabbits had eaten the plants at first and then when they did leave them alone and they started growing it was to late for them. They were not ripe and I had to throw them all away but they sure are cute this small.

Dh bought these copper molds for me many years ago at a house auction and they are starting to tarnish from age I guess, so I've been looking for something to replace them.
Had these 2 bowls that I had dh put holes in for hanging, added some material through the holes and hung them up. Then I decided to move the wooden crate somewhere else so I now needed something for
So I moved this picture from one side of the kitchen to the other and hung a picture that was not being used where this one came from. I told dh last night that since our furniture is too big for our little rooms and moving that around for a different look is not an option that I have to move the stuff on the walls instead.

Instant Light

What can you make from these 3 items? A tissue box, a candle light and a ring of berries?
A little light of course! I seen something similar to this in a magazine and I thought I would try it with these 3 items...looks good to me.

Becoming a pillow

I added the strips of material around the sampler and I soaked it in some tea dye yesterday. I still need to add the back on and stuff it and then I will have a completed pillow.

Friday pictures

Some pictures to share with you all from around my house. This spinning wheel we got at an auction a few years back.

This black chimnet cabinet I got from ebay, I store my cd's, dvd's and candles in there. The sheep is the one I got at a yard sale during the summer.

This old soda crate hangs in my kitchen.

These shaker boxes also came from ebay. The UPS guy delivered these to the wrong house, same house number as mine but totally different town. They were missing for about a month before the guy realized they were on his back porch(he said he doesn't use that porch very often). He then took them to the post office in my town and I finally got them. I even had the UPS guy come to my house and tell me himself that he left them on my back steps..well my back steps are not big enough to hold the box that this came in. Hmmmm..just glad I got them.

I'm busy working on some samplers and as soon as I get them done I will share them with you.

Candy corn

These are some candy corn ornies that I finished up yesterday. They are still drying from being dunked in some coffee to darken them up and sprinkled them with some cinnamon to make them smell good too.

Pumpkin pillow

Made this little pillow/wall hanging over the weekend and finished it up yesterday.
Seen this online somewhere, but they used wool to make it. i don't have wool so I just used regular material and then painted the pumpkin and added some floor stain to darken it up.

Worked on some crafts this weekend but these are the only ones I got completely done. Although I may sand them down a bit for a more worn look.
Will post pictures of the rest as soon as they are finished.
