spun cotton trick or treat kids on a fall day...

 its a perfect fall day...
the kids are out for fall break and it looks like this outside~
yes, the sky really is that blue here in Utah.





  

i'm painting these little spun cotton trick or treaters..  this is circus bear with his little wool felt ball balloon with the striped string.
oh, i had fun making her.  now i just want to make the whole circus!
 
i'm drinking this.  Ibarra Mexican hot chocolate made with steamed milk, cinnamon, and a pinch of red pepper.  makes you think of that movie Chocolat doesn't it.


 heres felix the cats, kindof wonky...

Close-up of Zombie boy and his tiny teeth!

 skeleton boy has a tiny jack o lantern i made by painting a tiny millinery pumpkin on a wire.
i really like his hand dyed fringed collar and stripey pants.

i'm reading this, brand new from the fabric store.  plus it has an article with jess brown in it.

i'm sewing these ruffles.  can't stand how cool they turned out with the vintage grey thread.  they had big diagonal stripes to begin with, but after ruffling they look like this.

i'm listening to Pandora, the Gotye Radio mix and love this song...
oh well, back to it all on monday, but today it is just the perfect day!
happy fall,
julie

Your post makes me just want to steal your life. Of course for me the best part is your Halloween 'people', thanks for sharing.

Your trick or treaters are so neat. Nothing like 'em!

Hi Julie. Would you mind telling me where you get your little boxes for your Etsy pretties that you sell? I was looking at some of your photos and I saw that you have some boxes with clear tops that you put some of your items in such as your little bottle brush trees. I went on both Etsy and eBay and couldn't find any that I like so I thought I'd ask you. Thanks so much!! : )
