I promised to show you photos of Lisa's adorable art cards she's making as invitations for Joli's faerie themed 2nd birthday party. I realized later that I couldn't really take shots of the full cards as they had all sorts of personal info one doesn't particularly want to spread all over the internet (because of course a thousand people a day read my blog and would then share that info...), so I settled for just a peek at the cards and after I uploaded the photos I realized it they were fuzzy out of focus peeks at that. Oh well, you know, it's very hard to see the faerie realm clearly from the mundane world, yes?

She's making four or so of each design and then moving on to another idea. This set has the neatest wispy silver .... it's not quite lace and not quite cobwebs... framing it.

This wee faerie reminds me of Joli with her "look at me" stance. She's coloring each one slightly different.

Frogs and faeries seem to be connected somehow. Maybe there's also some connection to the disappearance of frogs from their ecosystem and the faerie world. Are we losing parts of the circle of nature because we're losing the magic that binds everything together beneath what we can see.

Faery poem and some pretty thrifted ribbon.

And now for something a bit spookier to fulfill the Post Spooky Challenge. I took these photos on a walk with Lisa and Joli yesterday. I forgot how much pushing a stroller changes the amount of effort one expends. My shoulders are remembering just how much today!

A veiny pumpkin

The one little pumpkin looks pretty nervous about being in this spooky scene. The other one seems to be smiling wickedly.

A witch and her familiar.

A more goofy than spooky pumpkin monster.

Autumn blooms fading on the vine.
