Ready for Autumn



There aren't any real pumpkins available right now where we live. I was hesitant to purchase a fake one instead, since every year our real ones are massacred by neighborhood hooligans. I wasn't sure that they would be able to distinguish between the two and they might obliterate the pricey fake. So I printed out some vintage pictures in a frame for now. What do you think? Weird?
My 3 year old helped me make the scarecrow. There are mums in the urn. You will have to trust me on that one because the scorching sun has removed all color off them for the moment.

I See a Silhouette-ah (Thunder bolt of Lightning)

I wanted to add something to flank my mirror in the dining room. I decided to make a silhouette of my 3 year old. I found step by step instructions from this blog. I didn't realize it could all be done via photoshop! No meticulous cutting required! Since we only have one child, I was going to do a silhouette of my son and our Yorkie. That plan changed when our little furball really looked like an indistinguishable furball. So instead, I just flipped the image of my son and had 2 of him.
