Race is the kiddo in the middle. The one in a hoody only. I have no idea where his coat was.

Colored lights? I always go with the color. It is just my more layed back, playful style. Oh how I wish I could be the elegant sophisticated "Snow Queen" of the white tree, but alas I am meant to remain the ever crazy "Queen of Hearts".
It is good to be back with you. I've started my new job. It feels like I've started a new life, but I think I am back in my bloggy groove. Thank you all for your loving comments. It is great to be missed.

Race was a little red devil!!!
I even made them each a matching candy bag.
Tripp was the Headless Horseman. We made his pumpkin head out of paper mache and a beach ball. The thing he is carrying is a lantern on a stick.
I'm not so good this year.... Race is a Clone Trooper from Party City, I don't even know Callie's plans yet, and Tripp is visiting his camp friends at the University of Arkansas. It's their Homecoming this weekend, and he's there for his official "campus visit". I don't know which is scarier, my house in these pictures before I worked on it or the fact I let my high school senior (yes, this innocent, young headless horseman) go on a college trip, not only for Arkansas' party weekend but also on Halloween! BOOO!!!!
This mess, believe it or not, spells
I love the creative process. I have all the time in the world to imagine what I want to do. I am constantly sketching designs, making lists of materials, searching for the inspirational eye candy, pouring through my treasured trinket stash. Is this why the only time I actually get anything accomplished is in the wee hours of the morning?! From this point on, I am only working set work hours. Well, after today, maybe. I'll be at Race's school all day for their fall festival presentations. Have a super day before Halloween!!

The good news about my absence, I am busy, busy working my fingers to the bone. My hands are a strange shade of purple, brown, yellow from dying leathers and lace. My poor fingers are calloused and raw from beading. Though this picture is old, I have all new designs almost ready for my trunk show next week. I can't wait to show them to you, and guess what, I will be adding a second blog in November to showcase and sell them to you, my friends, just in time for Christmas wish lists.

Yes, it is warm and cozy.
Yes, I do love its Texas, country style.
Yes, I did love my grandmother's leggy, Edwardian tufted, red upholstered chairs. They added a bit of femininity and formality amidst the deer mounts and elk.
My husband discovered much to my dismay that they are not recliners.
Here are a few of my favorites that I have invited to my poor chair's funeral.
I'm hoping some will decide to stay.
