|finished pumpkins and stretching cat
These are the finished pieces that I just picked up from the Studio. I think they came out fine... all in one piece too!
Have been playing with the idea of using a spray glaze for the over-sized mugs. I haven't used this technique before, but have seen others do it. I hope to spray the mugs one color and then perhaps due a light detail spray on top in another color. We'll see...
Also... today is my oldest son's birthday!
|happy and content... at One Year!
He and his family moved to Hawaii this past summer. I love this next picture... to me it shows how much he likes it there.
|happy and content... Now!
Just went outside to check on my small container garden.
|parsley and remaining red pepper
I believe that the red bell pepper plant has produced it's last pepper... and it's almost ready to pick. But our curly parsley is enjoying the cooler weather and is looking good. You can't see the basil on the far right, but it has pretty much gone to seed.
We also have a huge bay leaf tree in the back. It produces enough bay leaves to keep us, family, and friends in a constant supply for cooking, as well as a bug deterrent.
I keep branches of it hanging from my kitchen ceiling as well as in the pantry... it deters bugs.
Well, that's the news here. Weather is definitely cooler here in North Texas and supposedly we're in for some possible rough weather and rain later tonight. We could use the rain... but don't need any more 'rough weather'.
Leaving you with 3 pics... one of Julie and Tux cuddled together in a basket. Julie has been a bit needy lately (wanting to be be played with more than usual and snuggling in with Tux whenever she can??)
|Julie is in front cuddling... Tux is tolerating

It's a large pumpkin...
Have a wonderful weekend!
And as always, thanks for dropping by!
Oh... forgot to mention that I just updated one of my other blogs, "Cats, Coffee, and Chocolate" if anyone's interested. My other blogs are listed to the right at the top here. I've neglected them pretty much in favor of this all inclusive one, but did update just recently...
