"The Seasonal Magic..."

...and holiday anticipation
of these last few days of October is now upon us!
Just what will this festive time reveal?
how about a little desert style "Happy Cactus Monday"
to get the party started!!! :)
(Psst...stay tuned for a full week packed with pumpkin "palette-y" posts!)

I would rather sit on a pumpkin,
and have it all to myself,
than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
Henry David Thoreau

Love it! I really like the moon and love those little tendrils coming off the pumpkin. Every bit of it is just a real treat for the eyes!

Alex said...

Beautiful background! It certainly brings out the halloween feel to it, especially the pumpkin, and it's in fact very Jack Skellington-like too ^^ I like it how you subtly using darker colors on it making it popping out nicely, while retaining your unique arts with the cactus and the stones. This is definitely YOU! ^^

That blue and orange combination is stunning! Happy Halloween.

Leslie said...

It's me.
I must tell you of something. It's naughty, but I can't handle the guilt any more.

here it is.

I print out your pictures on WC paper in ATC size and cut them out and put them on my office wall in a mosaic.


i feel better, now.


p.s. I give you full credit, of course. Everyone in the office has seen my stuff, so they would never believe I could do them!! HA!

Seasonal or not, magic always happens on this blog ;)

Birthday??? I've been so wrapped up in my own puddle of woe that I missed your birthday!

Hmmm, stay tuned is all I have to say (once I catch up!)

Happy belated, my friend.

Left a comment and must have goofed somehow. Anyhow, you've made another lovely piece here.
