Short Fall Ya'll

The view from my Studio at The Chicken Farm Art Center.  Doesn't Texas Mother Nature bring a new meaning to Fall Colors?  Of course the day before the leaves turned it was near 80 degrees.  An overnight low of 29 degrees snapped the green right outta them and in the next few days...well, it's a wonderful concoction of reds, yellows and oranges. 
A few greens are still hanging on.  It happens when the weather changes from freezing to hot in a flash!  People ask is it cold or hot in Texas...the answer...Yes!
Fall didn't last very long this year, but I was ready with a colorful array of Fall items. 
 Aren't those the cutest pumpkins with their spool stems?


LeButon Bracelets Bragging Rights

I'm on a November posting roll....3 in a row!  It's gotta be one of two things...one 'Guilt' and two 'Bragging Rights'...likely both.  So, let's start with Bragging Rights or a term I like better...'Back Patting'...without breaking my arm. 
Aren't these too cute?  I think the 'Tweens and Teens' will love them for an upgrade 'Friendship Bracelet'.  Remember those?  Notice the LeButon Bird Button from yesterdays Wordless Wednesday?  I found these buttons a few years ago on clearance and knew they would be good for a future project.  They worked out perfectly for my version of a video that popped up on my Facebook page.  I'll share it with you....

There...that takes care of 'Guilt'.


Make My Jig List

It's nearly Mid-November...in a few days...and for the first time in years of blogging, I did not start a month off on the first day of the month.   Sure glad I didn't declare back in January to be a daily poster which has often come to mind as each New Year begins.  I've for sure fallen short of even posting for half of the days of the month...most months of 2018.  Funny how blogging has changed for me over the last couple of years.  At one time, I rarely missed a day of at least checking in, reading on my blog list and posting more  often than not.  Now days...I rarely check in.  Poor blog, it's really taken a back seat to .... well, everything.  My apologies  blog list and readers.
What I've been doing is enticing, cajoling and pretty much pleading with folks to 'Make My Jig List'.  They do that by buying 'Handmade', and in order to do so, I have been making sure there are lots and lots of my 'Handmade' do be 'Jigging' over.  That's basically why I'm 12 days late in starting November blogging.
Here's a few pictures of what can get the 'Jigging' going...

Watch out Big Box Stores.
