Boo!

Martha Stewart inspired jack-o'-lanterns.

Meringue bones (Martha again). I didn't have the called for pastry tip to pipe these out with, but had a smaller one, so I made a bunch of mini bones and used them to decorate this cake (which, incidentally, is a perfect chocolate cake. I can't imagine ever bothering with another chocolate cake recipe again. It's that good!)

Cheshire Cat (who later grew some whiskers during a nap, the only possible time I could get away with drawing on her face).

Plus Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts.


I love my tiny crown. I don't love the fly swatter back there in the background. Gross.

Okay, back to hiatus mode!

Hedgehog + Hiatus

Here's a funny little hedgehog I just made using this free pattern. His snout seems to look especially long in the photo! On second thought, I think it really is that funny-looking.

Unrelated, I've decided to take a little break from blogging for a spell. I imagine it won't last more than a month or so, and I might stop in during that time to atleast share a Halloween photo or two (costumes are still being worked on, but looking good so far!). I just have a few things (artsy-craftsy) in the works that need my attention, plus want to have lots more, so am trying to really buckle down and make use of my free time to that end.

This Moment (XVIII)

This week's "moment", inspired by Soule Mama. In her words,
"{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember."

*Okay, so I cheated a tad here...I think this was a little more than a week ago. Somehow this week flew by almost entirely un-photo-documented.

Monday Morel


Turns out, too late, that I'm not so keen on the border. I think I'd like this better with no border and just a spacious background of the faint blue-green. I may still add a name, to properly label my specimen. Somewhere I have a little drawing my mom drew of a morel when she was about my age, maybe a little younger. I will post it if I ever find it. I'm anticipating more mushrooms will be coming soon.

Right Now, I'm Loving...

Complimentary Advice (and tea)


The Enya-esqueness of this song.


And more tea (mint, served on ice please).
