More Halloween Projects



After a time consuming project such as the cross stitch Sugar Skull from last week now a fast one: a drawing of a cute evil pumpkin.

And because we are renovating again, I had to clear out a closet and found the Hama Beads. I couldn't withstand temptation and had to make something for Halloween. I found some simple patterns and hoopla, a ghost and a pumpkin!


In the same closet I found something I made a couple of years ago for Halloween,  before I started blogging. Don't know why I kept it, but since I still like it, it's hanging from the kitchen wall.


As I remember it right, I found this owl at Martha Stewart.

Fall

We had real good weather the month of september, which made up for the really worse month of august, that was full of wind and rain, more wind and rain and even more wind and rain. The weather was so good actually that I could have my Ibiza Style series totally appropriate (Ibiza being an island in the Mediterranean Sea, that people go to mostly in the summer, when the weather is warm).


Fall still hasn't come here yet. At the end of summer I'm looking forward to baking speculaas and pumpkin cakes, to light up the candles, to going back to living inside, but at the end of october it's still around 20 degrees Celsius here. So, I have to create my own fall for now, I guess.

Today I bought ball chrysantemums and pumpkins for the garden.


Drew some leaves and pumpkins on the windows with chalk paint, as you can see in the back of the picture.



Bought some dried hydragaea, too. 



I took out my crocheted Cat Pumpkin, that I made a couple of years ago. Just in time for Halloween.

Drew some pumpkins on the blackboard on my kitchendoor as well.

Only thing to wait for now is fall itself...

Paris, France

Guess what? My kids have holidays again! After just seven weeks of school they already have had two days off and the first vacation of this year of school is this week.

Last year we promised them to go to Paris, because they really wanted to see the Eiffel Tower, and now the time was there! Besides La Tour d'Eiffel we saw other things, of course. Here are some pictures:

Star Pillow

This week I made another pillow for my friend!


I'm a bit behind with my posts. Well, not with the written parts, but with my pictures. I can't find my camera, don't even have a clue where it can be. So I make pictures with my phone now, but still have to find out what the quickest way is to upload them to my blog.
