The image is from a postcard from the early 1900's. I accented the "pumpkin men" with a Diamond Glaze and glitter mix, added a fabric carved pumpkin, mulberry leaves outlined in glitter and a ribbon.
So far it has been a beautiful October. The weather changed dramatically at the end of September as if to apologize for dragging summer so far past its boundaries. We have had temperatures in the 40s and 50s (F) at night and the days have been clear and blue with temps in the 60s and 70s, except for one day when it was cloudy and overcast. I felt so much better Saturday that I was able to accompany John to pick up some straw bales and even to have lunch out. He's spreading the straw in bare areas to cut down on the mud in the autumn rains. Sunday and Monday, however my strength ebbed sharply. Today I am thankful to say that I feel pretty good!
