Not A Bad Way to Start the Month of October

There have been some pretty exciting things going on (for me at least) these days.  This is a good thing because it helps me keep my mind off the fact that it's getting cooler/colder outside. 

Let's get this party started with prop shopping.  I am always looking for new props to use in my food shoots.  This crop of props is courtesy of my sister-in-law and niece. While visiting them in North Carolina, the men went to a car show and the ladies took me to the most wonderful antique store.  The place was grand; something wonderful around every corner.  And from where I sit I made quite a haul.

And, not wanting to leave any good things out.  Here are a few dishes that my son brought for me to use. 
Next on the list of greats is that I was accepted into the SAAG National Juried Art Show.  I have 2 pieces in the show this year.  The dates for the show are October 18th to November 15.  Come on out and visit Blue Ridge, GA; enjoy the mountains, the wonderful town,  and the SAAG Art Show.
Now, let me introduce you to Olaf.  This is a first for me - creating something out of paper mache and paper mache clay. 
Every year Alpharetta, GA has a Harvest Festival.  And every year schools and businesses sign-up to create scarecrows to decorate the street corners and sidewalks.  This year, with the help of the Art Club, I made an Olaf to represent for the place where I work, 'Out of the Box Art Studio'. There were only a few difficulties, his head fell off - Twice.  But, he recovered and let's say that I am very thankful for the tree in which he is tied .

And, lastly (is that a word?), it's not fall until you go to the 
mountains for apples, pumpkins, and boiled peanuts.

Oh, and I almost forgot - you simply cannot go to the mountains without stopping by Poole's BBQ for lunch.  One more thing, and I promise this is it.  I would like to share my Halloween wreath with you.  This little beauty was made with all Dollar Store treasures (except the grapevine wreath - that was from 'Michael's').

 Enjoy your week!
Thanks for stopping by and reading!

Happy Fall, Ya'll
