pumpkins make life BETTER …

You may remember I said I would post more beautiful pumpkin pics. Well, it is Halloween after all. I hope everyone and their kiddos had a safe and Happy Halloween full of not-too-much yummy sugary crappy candy. I admit that I had 4 tiny pieces myself as we had candy at work for mall trick-or-treating ;) My favorite little munchkin to come into the store was a tiny 3 year old Chubaka. O.M.G. BE-yond adorable. What was your fave costume of the night???

gourdeous PUMPKINS …

Ok seriously, who doesn’t LOVE fall and all the shit that comes with it? If you don’t, we need to talk. Message me! ;)

Look at these piles of beauty. I went to 2 farms within 2 days and took 2 million photos of gourds and corn stalks and pumpkins ranging from tiny to enormous and specialty pumpkins that look like they belong in Cinderella and green ones and ones with warts and ones that look like giant squashes and … shit, I can’t even list all of them. You get it, if you get that fall is the bomb. I may be posting these photos all the way through winter cause I got some pretty good shots. Although, I can’t take full credit for how good they are, because pumpkins make pretty fabulous models even without much airbrushing or filtering. ¬†Yes, I may be biased because I am an autumnal baby (as in I was born today 39 years ago). But let’s be honest, I know you all want to relive the beauty of this season along with me for the next few months. So get ready for a whole lot of orange in your inbox ;)

as GOOD a place as any …

Just put those anywhere. Oh, here’s some lovely bushes and trees. That’ll be a perfect spot to throw a bunch of broken down crates. This isn’t a typical place for these objects, but if we did everything “typically,” life would be really fucking boring. Plus they add some serious character to those plants!

the FRUITS of our labor …

A pre-birthday celebration with my city family (brother Matt, cousin Kat and her hubby Dan, friend Sara) in the country. They journeyed up to these parts to go apple picking, eat BBQ and drink beer. The day started with some hiccups (train delays, traffic, change of plans) and ended up being exactly what we wanted (or at least, what I wanted!). It was a fabulously fun fall day of climbing apple trees, laughing at stupid jokes, shoving loads of meat in our mouths, and washing it down with pumpkin ale. Go ahead, you can borrow our day plans cause everyone should have a taste of this ;)

Have a Happley Monday!!!!

 

ARTumn leaves …

Who needs art stores when you have nature? OK, not really, cause I kinda love my drawing pens like A LOT. On this day though, nature was my canvas and my medium. Nature allows me to free my mind in order to create. And not just create pretty pinwheels of autumn leaves…create ANYTHING. (FYI I’m an arteest outside the woods also.)

Almost one year ago, I took a lovely art class on ‘nature sculpture’ when I was living at Omega. We walked around the woods and made art with sticks and leaves and moss and rocks and broken glass (if it’s there, you might as well use it). I had never looked at nature in that way before, and it was extremely calming and meditative to create in this way. So, as I was walking among the colorful fallen leaves the other day, it seemed the exact perfect time to make something beautiful.
