“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Rainy nights & painted rocks

How has your week been?
It's been pretty great here!
Our monsoon finally gave us a lot of rain last night
plenty of thunder rumbling and lightning flashing
it was awesome!
We baked toffee cookies and watched a creepy movie. 
(This movie is rated R and not appropriate for children) 

'Hagazussa'


.......................................................
Lot's of things happened this week,
we have a new pet.
This is Walter.
He was emaciated, terrified, dehydrated and all alone.
He now has his shots and is set to be fixed in a couple of weeks,
(once he gets to a safer weight)
He's so very sweet..doesn't really know how to play with toys
but is steadily gaining
and learning to navigate in a house full of 
very large cats:) 
We love him so much already.


We went to the grocery store last night and found these!!
I'm so excited to see some more Halloween goodies 
popping up around town!!!








This was at Michael's craft store recently
I'll show you what I actually got there later!


...............................................................................
                                          Helena and I made a painted rock village.. 
complete with a creepy house for the edge of town:)











You can find examples online or
 just make whatever comes to mind.
It was a lot of fun. 
............................................................

I think this is it for today, 
but I'll see you very soon💖

mini ornaments


How has your weekend been?
It's been very toasty here..
  Monday and Tuesday are supposed 
to have a high of 114.
As you can imagine,
we don't venture outside much during these months 
I prefer to stay in and create.
..................................................................................................

I finished up a few ornaments I started yesterday.
this first one is made out of Sculpey and pipe cleaners.


I made this with pipe cleaners,
paper flowers and a Lisa Kettell doll face.


This little box ornament holds a tiny girl, glittered trees & stars.


.........................................................................................................

I have to get going now, hope everyone has a  
great Sunday.
I'll be dropping by your blogs for a visit really soon.

Wild Things, Stranger Things and sad things.

Well, it's July!
How the heck did that get here already?!?
I swear, it seems like I post
then I get back on a few days later 
and two weeks have gone by!
........................................................
You know how I'm creating
 a 'Where The Wild Things Are' altered book? 
Well, the other day I made this little clay piece.
He reminds me of my cat, Peeves:)



 This next piece is a wall hanging made for
the Hellgnome's Deathdigis design team...

 .............................................................................................

We celebrated the 4th by having a 
'Stranger Things' party...
Do you watch it?
We had a few friends stop by for barbecue, dessert
and a few episodes of the third season.
I had to carve this, it's easier to do than a pumpkin
because I'm allergic to gourds.
But it's way messier. 


.............................................................................

Today is a sad day for me, it's been seven years
since my beloved pup, Kane, passed away.
He was sweet and happy all the time, never barked,
helped bring the groceries in and would pick up
his toys off the floor at the end of the day.
He was the best dog and i miss him terribly.














................................................................................................................
Well I'm off to watch another episode of 'Stranger Things'
Ive been informed that the popcorn is ready!
Have a nice weekend.

Today is fairy day!


How was your weekend?
I had a great one.
Did you do anything to celebrate the solstice?
It's not my favorite time, but I am happy
that the days are going to start getting shorter soon. 
 

 ...................................................................
 I found some really great memes
the other day and wanted to share them here.

I do most of these..worrying less is something 
I need to work on though, lol


 This one is my favorite. 
I love the idea of just being comfortable with yourself.

 Obviously, this one goes without saying.

Did you know today was fairy day?


I used to have a little party to celebrate the day..
I didn't have a chance this year, but in case you're 
interested, if you click here 
you can visit a couple fairy parties that have gone by:)
..........................................................................
 
Well, I'm about to start dinner 
so i better get going for now.
 I hope you have a magical day💞

crafts and magical gifts

The heat has arrived!! Well, a little bit..
It will get much hotter before we get out of the month.
Good news is...Monsoon season starts on Saturday!
I look forward to hearing thunder and smelling the rain come in.
It peaks in July😀 but sometimes we get lucky and it drops sooner.


It's getting closer to Halloween!
We only have 
139 Days left!!!

 I have a few things I've been making lately..


This is a book trinket box


A couple of cookie cutter witches
made of clay..
 

These paper mache dolls are a work in progress,
(Can you tell one of them is Frida?)




So is this junk journal..I absolutely love
Where The Wild Things Are!! 
It's the first book I remember reading.
I'll show you the pages 
once I'm done with it.




I found this quote a while ago, and I feel it's
fitting in perfectly with how I want to live my life.
I think if you look for magic everyday, you WILL find it.
Lately it seems as though magic and gifts keep 
drifting into my world.
Here's a little list of amazing things that have happened:
 
I recently had a visit to my doctor and he told me I 
was done with my post-operative bi-annual appointments, 
I don't need to go back!
That is Magic to me!!
....................................................
 oooh, I was given this candle the other night!
It smells like the green tea perfume
from Elizabeth Arden:)
 

This next candle smells just like a coffee shop, SO GOOD!!
It's so saturated, the whole house was filled with this 
incredible scent...

 

 
The view out of my kitchen window,
 
 
 
New magazines with my favorite birds
and projects!




I love all things Haunted Mansion so
this giant box with the hitchhiking ghosts was
such a great surprise.
This was gifted to me yesterday.


One of the lovely little hummingbirds
posing for me...



These are bookends!!!
Incredible, stunning, glittery bookends💫


I love all these amazing treasures!!
I think my favorite one is this one:
Peeves just getting ready for a nap.


...................................................................................

Well, I have to get going for now..
I hope everyone is doing well.
I'll be by later to visit.
