12 Days of Christmas

This is just a sneak peek of my contribution to the Altered Art Divas "12 Days of Christmas" gift swap. I'm Day 6, which occurs on December 6th, at which time eleven other Divas will open the gift boxes shown, and at which time I can post the gift inside.

Sorry, no peeking before then! :-)

Among the Autumn Leaves

Just a little quickie from some pics my son sent me when they took Ava for a walk among the autumn leaves. The golden sun shining on the golden leaves with her golden smile just begged to be arted!

Little Sammie Pumpkin Head

Every year we put out our headless pumpkin man, Sam, on our front porch swing. Well, Sam got wet in his off-season home (the corner of the garage) and rotted on us. After a brief funeral over the garbage can, we went on a quest for a new Sam. Goodwill, our usual stomping grounds for all the "good" stuff, was sadly lacking in adult-sized overalls, offering up only a size 5 in children's, so sometimes you just have to go with what there is, and voila'!

Little Sammie was born!

Little Sammie even has a pair of personally custom crafted "altered" shoes!
And to ensure that Little Sammie does not meet the fate of Sam, Sr., Little Sammie will live in the basement in the off-season!!
