Back To School Tarmack

Awwww…little Tarmac is off to school!

Don’t you just love his sweet back pack?!!

My favorite parts of this squirrely “get-up” are the teensy books hanging from his arms. Heehee.

Perhaps I have too much time on my hands.  Perhaps my priorities are a bit mixed up.  Perhaps it’s just freaking fun to imagine how people smile when they see this little guy each month. Pretty sure that’s why I do it.

All I know is I sure giggled a lot with this one.

That’s always time well spent.

 

 

Summery Autumn “Paper” Chain

You know that funny place where Summer is pretty much done, kids are back to school, everybody is ready for Autumn…

but the weather isn’t quite playing along yet?

Yeah, that’s where we are now. Too breezy and cool to actually swim, but then, the next day it’s 230 degrees on the porch.

Mother Nature make up your MIND already!!

So, as to not feel thwarted in my desire to decorate accordingly, the colors that felt to me like this middle space between the hot days and Halloween– I came up with these.

Maroon and lavender and deep green and a variegated mixture of them all. Clever–yes? It kinda looks like a bright, yet ready-for-Fall-ish sort of concoction, don’t you think?

At any rate, it makes me smile.

So go ahead Mother Nature–do your thing. I’ve found my color “happy place” in spite of you.

And we can stay here comfortably till the leaves come down.
