Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. We celebrated Saturday so DS and DGS could join us. Low key, great meal, time to visit. DGS brought home a cold from school on Wednesday and gave it to me Friday. Sunday I felt not so very fine so it was turkey Soup Sunday and Turkey sandwiches Monday.
Below are 5 years of my Halloween Vignettes. I tell myself I make them for DGS but I suspect I make them for myself too.
2014 - Pumpkins from Laity Pumpkin Patch. Cast Iron Crows from years ago, wooden crows and pumpkins thrifted last year, cutting board from my Mom years ago and banner from two years ago. A mixture to make something fresh.
2013 This was my favourite, I used great junk finds (thrifted) and felt just like a junk blogger. This was the year I needed a lift in October and this did it for me.
2012 The year I bought a great and very different pumpkin. The painted buffet was finished and still in the carport so I had great junk to add to the vignette.
2011 First try at finding burlap (this is landscape/plant wrapping burlap). This was before close weave burlap became easier to find (not including real burlap potato sacks). Gourds, waxed leaves, burlap and a great bowl.
2010 A mixture of gourds and pumpkins, a folk carved and tin finned fish, peeks at special paintings. This was my 'beginning' in deliberately making vignettes. Before I just called it decorating.
I love using PicMonkey to make collages, frame pictures and add watermarks. Their team continues to add exciting additions to the program.
Thanks for visiting.
