Just Back From Halloween and Vine!

I'm going to add photo's of my 5 days in Petaluma... There were the meetings, the unpacking, the setting up, THE SHOW!!! People started waiting at the door at 5:30 a.m. and there were over 200 people...
I met unbelievably wonderful, sweet, caring, talented people. It's right up there on my top 10 lists of things I've done....
Here are some of the photos that I and others took, enjoy~
This is where Dani, Wendy, Brandi and I stayed....
Setting up Brandi's table in the hall..
Ornaments had to be taken in a basket...
 The people streamed in....
 and in....
William Bezek was there ~ what a nice person he is!
David Everett from Chicken Lips at the after party at a pumpkin farm... I want to be Davids neighbor!


Brandi's Warty Pumpkin!


 Moons by Brandi!
 Brandi's Tables.
Jorge de Rojas was one of my favorite artists there!


The colors are so much more vibrant than a picture can show!
Jo and Dylan from The Cart Before the Horse... such sweet, charming people....

Tomorrow I'll add photo's of after the show and the rest of my trip...
Getting ready for my next BIG trip to the Netherlands...
Oh and I'll announce the winner of the goblins in the pod!

Eggs, Mrs. Humpty Dumpty, All Together, and Of Course Lucy

First of all I want to thank you all again for your wonderful comments on my blog. I wish I could answer everyone of you... please know I read all the comments and appreciate them all!

Eggs! My Americana's are finally starting to lay eggs! Of course just in time for winter, when the egg laying drops off dramatically! Aren't they beautiful?

Mrs. Humpty Dumpty... She's the "real" victim of his fall...
Here's her story~
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall"

We've all heard that Nursery Rhyme.
Yes, Humpty couldn't be put back together again.
But lets stop and think, who is the real victim of Humpty Dumpty's fall?


Why it's Mrs. Dumpty and all the little dumpty's (eggs if you will).
Did anyone ever stop and think about Humpty's better half?
No, I didn't think so!

Poor Mrs. Dumpty sat on that fateful wall looking down on the mess
that used to be her husband, "Tsk Tsk" she thought.

All the Kings horses and All the Kings men noticed a small smile creeping upon Mrs. Dumpty's lips.
Is that a smirk or a smile? Is there a possibility of foul play?
Could he may have been pushed or nudged just a little?

Well, that would lead us into quite a different Nursery Rhyme....

Mr. Dumpty sat on a wall all day long on his tush.
You can't blame Mrs. Dumpty for giving him a little push.
When all the Kings horses and all the Kings men came to put Humpty Dumpty together again.

She said "Oh please don't bother! He wasn't a great father. All he did was sit on his wall. I knew he would fall." (She says with a smile)
 "We're better off without him" She said with a grin. "You see he left me a huge insurance policy. My babies and I won't suffer any strife. I'll just go find another egg and become his wife!"

Now if you've read this far I'm impressed!


A grouping of some of my dolls...

And last but not least ... Lucy... poor thing, 13th child... another story, another time~: )
