Today marks the first full week of the " October Blog Party " , thought I would take the time to update about the activities I've done this past week ..........................................
Oct 1st ~ I started the month by adding a primitive Halloween background to my blog and heading out to the local county fair to see my grandson's " Fall Tree ".
Oct 2nd ~ Made an art trading card , called " Spirit ".
Oct 3rd ~ I gathered herbal wildflowers to make a flower arrangement for the kitchen table. I also took time that night to enjoy viewing the harvest moon , it was absolutely enthralling. Glad I did , it was cloudy on Sunday.
Oct. 4th ~ Dug the Fall & Halloween decorations out and started decorating the front porch.
Oct 5th ~ Made pot-pourri to celebrate harvest time , used , apple peelings , herbs , lemon and orange rinds , small fir cones and pine cone petals. I added green apple and lemon oils for the scent , smells like Autumn.
Oct 6th ~ There were two beautiful spiderwebs outside the front porch yesterday morning, so I grabbed the camera and took photos of them. The camera fogged up in the misting rain and gave the web a very eerie look , perfect for the month of Oct. , I think the photo looks wonderful with the sepia effect. I also cooked homemade chili beans and jalapeno cornbread , yummo.
Oct 7th ~ I read the grand kids a book called " The Haunted House ". I found this little board book at a thrift store a few years ago , it's great for toddlers. They enjoyed being spooked a little !
