Flea Market Finds

 The flea market is definitely winding down for the year. It's always a bummer to see it go.  I picked up a few more putz houses (I am working on filling a BIG tree this year!), some old stockings and a quilt.


 She actually signed it!
 At a yard sale I picked up a HUGE lot of hankies, a few tablecloths, some feedsacks and a few holiday odds and ends.  Those are nearly over now too.
And our big tree finally made it's big show before the rain and wind stripped it bare for the year.

Twin toothless and more

Jack has been limping for two weeks. We had to make an unexpected trip to the ortho two days before Halloween, which resulted in some rather (upsetting) and unexpected news.  Now we have to wait until thanksgiving for the next x-ray to be sure of what's going on there.


The day before Halloween I made 22 of these pumpkins with the second graders. First, they did not take 5 minutes for 95% of the class. LOL  They are cute though, and I hope the parents enjoyed them.
And! We currently have toothless twins, or not twins. They are so cute with their matching gap toothed smiles.

Halloween, the end


 One baseball player (at the very last minute);
 One Pikachu;
 And one Morelull (another pokemon character).


After taking the first pictures I super, super, super stuffed it, she liked it better that way.

On the fifth day of Halloween

On the fifth day of Halloween, the Great Pumpkin gave to me:
 A few more Halloween trees! This one is new and so is the BIG kitty it's sitting in;
He has a hole in his head for candy I guess? It screamed put a tree in me to me;
And my handmade ornament tree from the old Halloween swaps and crafts with the kids.  The skirt on this was a happy accident this year - I bought a single Halloween bunting at a yard sale and it was perfect there!
Witchy poo here is new to me this year too.
