Ruffles, a Spider on the Chandy, and a Pink Hat...

A soft as butter pink straw cowboy hat, how could i not buy it !  For now it rests on an old lampshade...

There are hats on lampshades all over the place here!

and what is better than ruffles, tons of them....

 My favorite skirt...

And ummmmmm, i think i need a gun to kill a spider this big! 

Maybe we'll just let him stay, i don't think i want to mess with this guy, or piss him off!

What if he's a jumping spider, and jumps on me and falls down my shirt!!!

Of course it is almost Halloween, so no telling what i'll find in the cupboard in the kitchen....

GAAAH!  It is a pair of crows!

This little cupboard is loaded with wildlife!

How did all these spiders and birds and nests get in the house! 


I guess it's just that time of the year...

the sky is so deep blue it takes your breath away, and the sunsets are translucent, fading to orange and coral and lavender...the stars are bright little crystals that twinkle like no other time of the year..

fall has it's own special exciting energy
and it's crazy beautiful...

The end....
