I think I stayed at the bloglandia ball a few days too long. I am soooo tired, I wore the soles off of my shoes dancing. My house guests are gone, and I have been roaming outside, devouring the lovely change of weather. The yard feels so romantic and mysterious these days...
Oh, and I have been having tea with John Galliano. Oh, okay, you caught me in a white lie... But, I really do need his fall collection. The whole collection. Maryam said, this is so you, and I said, you are so right on! Just look at the borrowed photo below. (style.com)
I could so use her doll as well. Remember I told you Mr. Lovee had convinced me on a gift, one blue melancholic Sunday? Well, here you have it. An antique baby carriage. No, don't worry, I have no announcements. No babies for this girl. But, I do love the carriage for all of my dolls. I still have all of my childhood dolls in a giant trunk that travelled on the Mauretania, one way, from New York to Paris (obviously it then came back to me here).
I am having such a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I have been working a bit more than expected at my real job (thank goodness I am self employed, it makes life so much easier, as my life can get pretty kookie sometimes). And, I have been shopping. While Mr. Lovee was away for several days, I dragged home a treasure. I will share it soon. Boy, am I in trouble (or so I think)...
My days have consisted of tea with my dearest friend, early in the morning, working, packaging, cleaning, raking acreage, and the list never ends does it? Do you feel the same way?? While my one friend was here, we talked until we were slurring our words, late at night, and then simply fell asleep in mid conversation. Girlfriends are the bestest of the best!! I will have more guests soon. Then the 6th annual Witches party.
I have also been a naughty girl visiting every Halloween place in town. Here are two bad camera phone photos. But, the Martha Stewart Halloween treasures at Michael's are just awesome! (click photo to enlarge).
I have been shopping a little much and just look at all the treasures I brought home. Yipppeeee!!!
I know, exciting, exciting! You should come over and create with me! What would you make first? Oh, and I can't forget to ask you, hasn't the moon been unreal????
Our sky did something amazing this afternoon. Look at this, totally unaltered photo...
I wanted to have the scarecrow finished by the time Mr. Lovee got back, but no luck. I was not fast enough... Tonight, baby (she came with that name, I am not some insane chic) and I contemplated how to get the giant bale over to the other side of the yard... (while I decided to sip a Pumpkin Ale that I had left over from a gift basket I made. Pretty okay for a non-beer drinker)
Then we gave up... We'll ask Mr. Lovee for help tomorrow, when he is not so tired. Although, I am way to stubborn to ask for help... Hmmmm.
I went inside & decided to frame a print from my extraordinarily talented friend, Marjorie, a fellow cottage industry proprietress. She is MarmeeCraft. Her work is just unreal, whimsical and Victorian and sublime.
This print is titled, "Halloween Party" and is a limited edition. Don't you love it?? (my pictures are a bit dark, as night fell quickly this evening...)
Well, off I go. My body clock is so messed up. I have been waking up ten to 5:00 a.m. every day for 2 weeks now. So, 9 p.m. rolls around and I have had it, I need toothpicks to hold my eyelids open. See you soon!! Life is almost back to normal & I am making special time to visit all of you, my dear Bloglandia friends! Your visits are more than inspiring. xoxoxoxo
