And Who Might This Be?

Well, this might be my first real attempt at a complete head-to-toe Creature of the Night -- the night in question being October 17th to put a point on it – when I hop over to A Fanciful Twist’s Halloween Celebration here. When I say hop over, I don't mean I am going to ... erm, unless of course, some one puts a spell on me.

I already have the little Creature's duds picked out and yes, those will be made by hand. Nothing too good for My Baby here -- and I have for My Own Self a lovely pair of black lace gloves to join right in with everyone else.

And topping it off, maybe a new hairdo ... ! Oh brother, you don't need a hat with something like this, do you?

Between that and my own Mad Hatter Tea Party, which you can read about here, October is already shaping up to be "a fun time was had by all." And it’s still September, for cryin’ out loud.

Am I rushing things? Seeing as how before LABOR DAY there were already Christmas decorations in Hobby Lobby and certain small sections of Michael’s, au contraire, mon frère…or should that be soeur?

I leave you now with some photo experiments taken in the first sunny days after the rains hit.

Allow me to share my new journal's first page. I sometimes make collages for the inside covers of my journals. (Say, isn't that the Baby??)
And a quick reminder that Nature is the best set dresser of all.

Take care.

How exciting to see a new creature developing! And that hairdo is amazing! I like your journal page too-is that the sketchbook one or another one?
Is that cuckoo pint? I love that name. Interesting that your daddy long legs are different-it sounds as if they are what we call Harvestmen.

I like the writing/text over the hand tinted photo. Very nice journal page. We are going to p.a.r.t.y., aren't we? So much fun to have! thanks for thinking of a Mad Hatter party.

Hi Sweetie! I can't wait to see this little guy all done up!...Boy, that's some telephone wiry hairdo!
Remember when phones HAD wires, and were big enough to comfortably sit between your chin and shoulder to free up you hands? I miss that!...Gorgeous journal page, love the colors you used!...Yes, Mother Nature is the best dressed, especially in the fall! Love you pictures! Hugs, =D
