Pumpkin On Alert

My pumpkin this year had his stalk stuck up in the air as though he was startled and then on alert for ghosts and goblins.

My Best Friend's Toes, Fall Edition

It's time again for the My Best Friend's Toes, November edition. This month it's lovely mosaic patterns with fall colors. Very creative. This design draws the eye to the toes. Very clever indeed!

Sparkles are effective accents when showing off your new creation:
A close up like this just gives you an appreciation for the workmanship!

My Best Friend and I would like to wish you a very happy Fall Season.
Take your toes to a happy place. They'll thank you!

Pete The Monkey Boy

This is my chubby nephew Pete, my best friend's cat. The dude weighs over 17 pounds. SEVENTEEN POUNDS. As I was nervously pointing my camera up at him and I have to say I was admiring his agility since that is a pretty high shelf/doorway/what have you. He seemed pretty comfortable up there; I understand that cats like heights. But really, I was very happy to see him get down from there.

Poor photograph, good message.

Halloween Hats For Bunnies

My best friend decorates her house for Halloween. She has two bunny figurines that just begged for a hat, so I came home and made them one. I had fun!

The little ghost just kills me with those little arms! I love it!

While spending time with a dear friend tonight, I had a revelation. For so many years, I thought that I had little to offer anyone but now with hard work I have realized that when I love, that can be enough.

My Best Friend's Toes, Halloween Edition

The festive holiday of Halloween is upon us, and my best friend's toes reflect it:

Happy Halloween!

October Flowers

These flowers look more like spring to me!
(I've been MIA lately, sorry. Back to a regular schedule now!)

Thank Goodness THAT's Over

Perhaps it's my age...but boy, did this cold kick my butt.

September Edition: My Best Friend's Toes

Since this is the only window to have a theme that is independent of a holiday, we collaborated and created...Tiara Toes. Electric blue polish is the foundation of this lovely presentation. The tiaras are delicate and quite tasteful, greatly appealing to my self proclaimed Princess/Best Friend.

A brief note about my own recent pedicure experience: in the salon, I handed the tech my own bottle of top coat (it has sparkles, a departure for me). He looked at me a bit oddly, and when the time came to put the polish on, his hand poised above my big toe, he said, "One coat only, ok?" So...I left with little sparkle.

September Shells

As I look at these shells I am reminded of something someone said to me once about nature: there are very few straight lines. When I think of it, I can't recall any.

Pete And The Bunny Plate

I can't take credit for the idea of this shot. My best friend has the best ideas! This is Pete, her cat, surveying the goings on with his typical regal air.

If I Hadn't Taken This Picture Myself I Would Say It Was Doctored

Ocracoke Island, North Carolina

Ocracoke Island is a quiet, tiny island in the Outer Banks. This day brought soft breezes and gentle waves after a ferry boat ride took my friends and me to the shore there. Much like Key West but even smaller, this place has charm and peace. When we walked on the beach there were few people at the end of the day. The ocean, big and wide, surrounded us.

When it was time to meet the ferry to leave, we waited at the dock behind sand dunes, and this is what I saw:

Sometimes I can hardly believe my life.
