Stencilling Again

Halloween month of the year is a good time to make something pretty. I have the tools: stencil, a board painted black, orange, yellow and green chalk paint and a few stencil brushes - and I made a stencilled decoration for my front porch.

I haven't made a stencilled piece for a long time and tonight I decided to make a Halloween themed decoration.

For those who know me I am working hard to put my changed life on an even keel. I am grateful for family and friends who check in and help if I ask. I have learned how to manage being the executor. Lots more work to be done but I have a check list to follow and so far I am doing ok.

Evening photos are ok but not as bright.

I am getting back to writing on my blog again and today is the first of many posts.

I am grateful for bloggers who have shared how they cope when their dear husband has passed. I am grateful for old friends who tell me how it was for them and how they coped. 

Thanks Dear Friends for visiting today.
