There's a little nip of Fall in the air early in the mornings.

My favorite time of the year.
Time to slow down and reflect.
Time to start some crafting!

I finished making my little Halloween Pumpkin, he's ready to go Trick or Treating.
I had some good help and tips from Meri Wiley at

Ms. Wilma says she needs a new costume this year, she doesn't want to go as a witch this time.
I may dress her and Bam Bam as cave people like the Flintstones. ;-)

I haven't been blogging lately, because I had my other knee replacement
surgery three weeks ago.
I've been dragging around the house trying to get well, doing physical therapy every other day.

I have been sorting and organizing this bag of old lace which was a gift from a good friend.

I decorated my baby boys little infant shoes.
He is 34 years old now!

Playing with my dollies.

I hope you are finding some time to play.

Happy September Crafting,

Dorothy, Wilma and Bam Bam

Donna G,
I saw the autumn print on Pinterest, I don't know the artist. It may have been an old postcard.

Even though it has been hot and will be for awhile, I am SO ready for fall!
Love this Autumn art photo! I love Wilma's costume, maybe it would fit I do not think my little firecracker would allow a costume, but we will see...I did but her a hat, and some orange socks! lol Happy Crafting to you also!

Wish you all the best for your healing knee!
There is definitely more than just a nip of all in the air here; we've had a dreadfully wet (and chilly) August and only last week was finally warmer and sunny again. Yesterday, the weather has turned once more and it is a grey, rainy day - just right for going to work, and if the weekend is like this, too, I'll spend it with lots of reading, writing and some games :-)

Isn't that nurse doll the cutest little thing!!

Woolie Hugs

Surgery on the knee sounds painful, but I'm glad to see that you've had time to play :) I adore your little pumpkin fellow...he has the cutest expression! I've been wanting to get back into the paperclay but I've been busy with projects for Thomas lately!
