IS IT SCHOOL YET?

I had another week off from work. My last for the summer. A few days at the lake and even more days in the basement cleaning and organizing boxes of "stuff". So much "stuff"! Where the heck does it come from?!
Next Saturday we plan a large yard sale and hope to get most of the mess gone. It is so nice to de-clutter :).
In just a few more weeks it will be school again. Can you believe it! Back to busy schedules, bus stops and homework. I always feel in a rush during those morning and I am not looking forward to 4th grade math! I never remembered school being this difficult when I was a kid. And what is up with the home work! Good Golly.
I worked on a few pieces during my days at home. I can't seem to focus on one holiday (as I nervously twitch one eye) LOL.
A Thanksgiving turkey. DONE.
New faces for this years shakers....some old favorites and some new. NOT DONE.
My desk looks like the Holiday Gods threw up all over it.
Chow for now,
Cyndi

Thanksgiving Turkey


Love the way the crackle turned out! 
Unfinished shakers. The cats still need there sticks and some crepe paper. The bottom two are similar to pieces I have done but I changed it up a little bit and added some rusty bells on the sides to spin and jingle..... they still need some crepe paper too. What a mess!

      It's funny....Thanksgiving is the biggest holiday for my family. My mother always loved cooking for everyone and having the whole family together. But, I rarely make many pieces for it....I need to do more!
      Have a great week too peaches.

  3. Hi Cyndi, cool turkey, it looks like you are more than ready to start the autumn season.
    Thanks for the sweet visit . . . if you lived closer I would invite you over to bake. I'll bet we could have some fun.
    Good luck with your yard sale, I could use a little de-cluttering, too.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)
