My Little Scarecrow



    
       This is a ceramic Scarecrow made for me by my Mom many years ago..I always loved her painting on ceramics...kinda funny I have met several different ladies that do ceramics from all over the country.....you find the ones that think thiers are the best over all others and the ones that think they cannot paint at all....my mom thought she couldn't paint good at all, so my Dad and I would go to the craft sales and sell her things.....she was always in shock when the table come back cleared and empty. Thats partly why I loved it, she was so humble about her work.. 

     I only have a few things left now from her paintings because of moving and all the other stuff life throws your way..This one I had forgotten about until I went to my halloween tubs to decorate for my kids coming to visit. I was pleasantly surprises and this was like a new gift all over again.  Means my Mom's spirit must be with me this holiday season,.he looks great on my front door greeting my guests, and his little spider plays halloween music when pushed... What a blessing uh...

 May the Scarecrows in your life always be a blessing in disquise......

Christmas Wreath




                I made this Christmas Wreath to decorate my parents grave site....unfortunately it will proably get stolen...but for the time it lasts it  will be worth it to me..the only gift I can give is a small decoration and my thoughts and prayers...I wanted it to be beautiful enough to lay against the Iowa snow and stand out on its own.   My daughter will lay this there for me...I hope your holiday season is starting off already with a spirit that is unstopable....Happy Holiday Season  to all my friends that visit me here.....


P.S. For my parents may they rest in peace now they are together again....Love you Mom and Dad
