November Thursday

Rachel's front door.  I had a great time making this one, although I wonder how many of those hundred-and-something ornaments have popped off.  I started out wiring every one, then towards the end the trusty glue pot came to the rescue.

It's a Thursday and I'm sitting on the couch watching Young and the Restless.  Reminds me of being in college . . . Victor has lots of wrinkles now but it's still the same story they were telling in the 70's when I was at UK.  And he's still the bad guy you love to hate.

I ran a few errands this morning and stopped in Buckley's garden center.  Such a surprise to find an iris in full bloom.  What?!?  On the sale table. What!?!    The label says "reliable rebloomer."  So I brought it home and dressed it up.   If you know me you know that I've taken  most of my iris out over the last few years.   But if this one will bloom in the fall like this, I think I can find a place for it.

November Update

And yet another arrangement inspired by Francois Weeks.  Fall seems like it's flown away and here we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. 
Isaac will be here any day.  And then in another few weeks, Skye!
 She's recuperating from pneumonia so we'll have to wait a bit for her to be well enough to leave her foster care home.  We are so excited!

Halloween Report

It was an extra fun Halloween this year with Betsy & Kyle here.  They make every day a holiday :)

Kyle took his role as power ranger very seriously.   He was kinda proud of the six pack abs!  And Betsy was the most excited angel ever :)
I loved the flags for Halloween.  They looked so cute and were super easy to put up, take down, and store away.  The ghost was most popular on facebook.  If you'd like flags for your next Halloween, I can hook you up with my friend Michelle at Petals & Co  :)

November Flowers

I have used and reused some of the long-lasting leftovers from the workshop last month.  Yes, it's been a whole month since Flower House Detroit and the Francois Weeks workshop.  I'm ready for another flower week please.
