Halloween Eve ~ The Last Hours Before The Storm~ola

 I have been running around preparing for Halloween.  Making special treats for the really young ghosts and goblins that come to the door...whipping up my special chili dip recipe...{if I didn't make for tomorrow...well the world as we know it would end}...carving some pumpkins and decorating the porch till the porch can't be decorated anymore.

And not to be ignored, Thanksgiving and Christmas had to join in on the holiday who ~ ha as well...I should probably get serious and make some dinner and sweep the buckwheat hulls and burlap scraps away...but what fun is there in that?  Playing with acorn caps and velvet, making ghosts out of tootsie pops, and watching the Charlie Brown Halloween movie is just plain fun~ner!

I wanted to share the acorn cap do ~ dads that I have been distracting me in the most wonderful way.



I have been having a blast developing the pattern for these...velveteen and bells and acorn caps....Jingle Bell Acorns!  Now that's what I'm talking about.

Don't you just want to marry jingle bells?



Then I stitched up some with burlap...and added baby buttons in fall colors for a bit of autumn cha~cha~ness.

I thought these would be fun on a Thanksgiving table...or with a place card attached...or hanging from some branches standing at attention in an urn....the possibilities are endless!

Acorns are all over ETSY these days....and my shop is no exception...if the squirrels of the world only knew...

 

Before I go...don't you just love it when there are leaves in your grocery cart in the fall?  I do...it never fails to make me smile.

 

Even a grocery cart becomes more charming with nature's touch...

 

Looks right at home in my cart...

It has been a silly day...a welcome change from the seriousness of the past week.

Have a wonderful weekend...as for me, I am deep in the super~duper creative season that my soul delights in...it 'tis a messy season and it 'tis a crazy, crazy busy season and it 'tis the season where I am the happiest camper of them all.

Smiles ~ Ramona

You put a smile on my face too! Cute post! I'm definitely into acorns this year, but I'm keeping them all for myself. The squirrels will have to gather their own. ~ Sarah
