Not A Bad Way to Start the Month of October

There have been some pretty exciting things going on (for me at least) these days.  This is a good thing because it helps me keep my mind off the fact that it\’s getting cooler/colder outside. 

Let\’s get this party started with prop shopping.  I am always looking for new props to use in my food shoots.  This crop of props is courtesy of my sister-in-law and niece. While visiting them in North Carolina, the men went to a car show and the ladies took me to the most wonderful antique store.  The place was grand; something wonderful around every corner.  And from where I sit I made quite a haul.

And, not wanting to leave any good things out.  Here are a few dishes that my son brought for me to use. 

Next on the list of greats is that I was accepted into the SAAG National Juried Art Show.  I have 2 pieces in the show this year.  The dates for the show are October 18th to November 15.  Come on out and visit Blue Ridge, GA; enjoy the mountains, the wonderful town,  and the SAAG Art Show.

Now, let me introduce you to Olaf.  This is a first for me – creating something out of paper mache and paper mache clay. 
Every year Alpharetta, GA has a Harvest Festival.  And every year schools and businesses sign-up to create scarecrows to decorate the street corners and sidewalks.  This year, with the help of the Art Club, I made an Olaf to represent for the place where I work, \’Out of the Box Art Studio\’. There were only a few difficulties, his head fell off – Twice.  But, he recovered and let\’s say that I am very thankful for the tree in which he is tied .
And, lastly (is that a word?), it\’s not fall until you go to the 
mountains for apples, pumpkins, and boiled peanuts.

Oh, and I almost forgot – you simply cannot go to the mountains without stopping by Poole\’s BBQ for lunch.  One more thing, and I promise this is it.  I would like to share my Halloween wreath with you.  This little beauty was made with all Dollar Store treasures (except the grapevine wreath – that was from \’Michael\’s\’).

 Enjoy your week!
Thanks for stopping by and reading!
Happy Fall, Ya\’ll
