Vampire Bat Specimen Art

I went to a college with a large collection of natural specimens. My comparative anatomy lab even had a mounted lion from a local zoo! The lion wasn’t creepy but the old jars filled with mystery fluid and the drawers of stuffed birds and pinned insects had a touch of full body shudder. I was going for that slightly creepy vibe with this project.

Halloween Window Sign

I adore the movie Hocus Pocus. Someday I’ll make the Winifred Sanderson costume I’ve been planning for years. Until that day I’ll have to be happy with this Halloween window sign I whipped up for hanging next to the front door.

Garden Bench Update – Part 1 + The Silhouette Challenge

affiliate

I’ve had this bench for years, my grandfather made it for me for my… 16th? birthday? It sat on my moms lawn for many years until it was delivered to our house my by uncle and my very happy mother. I intended to give it a new coat of white paint and power wash the plastic lattice last year but it never happened and the bench sat lonely (and ugly) beside the driveway. Well last weekend while we were waiting for the man to pick up the cows (they have literally gone to a farm upstate, we found a new home for them because they were a lot to handle with the new baby) my brother-in-law got antsy and decided they should move RIGHT THEN! So my husband, nephew and two brothers-in-law carried it down the slippery lawn to it’s final resting place.

This year I got to be part of an awesome homemade gift tag exchange, there were over 30 participants and I received a giant envelope of loveliness. My tag was inspired by a file I found in the Silhouette Store for Garden Topiaries.
