Petal Fall

THIS is why my husband threatens to cut down the beautiful magnolia tree.

Petal fall

It's messy, but oh so beautiful too. I try to convince him to leave the petals on the ground for a bit because they look nice there, like a pink blanket. He's not convinced and will be out there raking them up the minute he gets home I'm sure. Honestly though, once they start decaying they can be very slippery. I wouldn't want the mail man to slip in our driveway and sue.

MY Mug

Around the house I like to have a mug that is distinctly mine, different from all the rest, because I just drink from the same mug all day and wash it at day's end.

MY mug

I spotted this little kit at Micheal's the other day and decided to make like an 8 year old and paint my own design.

As crafty as an 8 year old.

 Unfortunately the kit only has 4 colours to work with and they are all about the same intensity, no lights or darks, nor any white to create pastels, just your basic red, yellow, blue, and green.

Why Is It?!

Why is it that when I am needing perfectly peeled, boiled eggs for deviled eggs I have such a hard time peeling them and then end up with large chunks ripped out of the sides, yet when I'm just going to dice them up for a potatoe salad I get THIS, a dozen perfectly peeled eggs!!?

Why is it?


Pumpkin and Gourd wanted to do today's A Doll a Day prompt, which is "Pair".

ADAD - Pair

They are a pair of siblings, made from the same sculpt. In fact, Gourd was made from Pumpkin's sleeping faceplate. I had Ban Sidhe create eye openings for him and then give both of them a custom faceup.


They have been out climbing trees today.


It seems that whenever the two of them play together some sort of trouble is bound to occur.


Poor Shannon just sighs in exasperation and says, "You two are quite the pair!".

This is the view outside our living room window at this time of the year.


It's a beautiful, huge, magnolia tree that provides the house much needed shade during the hot summer days. My husband keeps threatening to cut it down. Admittedly it is a very messy tree. It sheds leaves, buds, petals, and stamens at various times of the year.


Today's word prompt for A Doll a Day is "Future". I really struggled with this one! I love the resulting photo though.

The ADAD theme for today is "Shadow". Good thing I took this one on April 1st when the sun was bright and low in the sky, because it's cloudy and grey today. Not much in the way of shadow's happening I'm afraid.

I still prefer the one I took of Serenity a long time ago, so I'm reposting it here.

Today's theme word for the A Doll a Day challenge is "Bare".


Penny was the only volunteer. Everyone else has heard the lectures about posting nude pictures on the internet.
