A burglar!

Greetings! Guess what was in our back yard a few minutes ago! A big ole grandaddy (probably a mommy) raccoon! I was sitting here in the computer room enjoying the cool autumn eve air and I heard something in the back yard. I thought it might be another deer, we have them back here often. So I sent the Hubs to investigate, you know, cause he loves deer. He crept on to the deck and of course I crept out behind him and we saw this big ole guy staring back at us from the orchard by our house. He was really big! He finally turned and disappeared into the dark. Now we just have to make sure the kids, chickens and puppies don't encounter him. Speaking of the puppies! Some watch dogs! Those Beagle Boys were curled up in their house not giving a fig about that raccoon! Guess they were all tuckered out after their afternoon jaunt. Here is a pretty recent pic. Those of you with Beagle experience will understand all of the movement in the picture!

Thats Rascal on the left and Bandit on the right.

In other news: Remember that camo Mallard duck ornie in my last blog post?  It sold! Yay! I hope the buyer enjoys and cherishes it!

Also if you hadn't noticed, I updated my blogs look. I just gotta change it up sometimes! There are so many talented blog designers out there that make the rest of us look good just for their own sheer pleasure! Thanks to you all! 
Uh oh sounds like that raccoon is back again! Gonna go peek out the window! Have a wonderful week!

A couple of new listings on Etsy

Top O'the morning to you!
I have listed a few new items in my Etsy shop

Here is a small Canvasback Duck decoy I created because of my husbands love for decoys. They are so simple and have nice lines and curves; an elegance.

This Canadian Goose I created last November for craft shows. He's been living on my hutch and really likes it there but, like all migrating geese, he is feeling the urge to move on!

Here is a not so new listing but I didn't have it on my blog when I listed it. And it fits right in with today's bird theme! Mallard Duck camo ornie! I found this awesome over dyed wool called Jungle. It makes great camo. Isn't this ornie perfect for a cabin Christmas tree! Its perfect for ANY Christmas tree! Its really lightweight so it won't weigh down your branches. (Still I wish I had a cabin to hang this in!)

Next up: A new Roundie Owl. Roundies are a concept my owl loving daughter came up with and, hey, who am I to stifle creativity! We start with her choosing colors and moods and end with me making them. Its good teamwork! New listing today is for the grumpy purple guy that's stuck in the middle there. I listed the pink one a few weeks ago and the dark blue dude is coming soon. Adopt one today!

That's it for new listings so how bout a looksie at what I'm working on now? OK here it is. Oh I'm so excited!

I love him so much!! I've been working on him since the spring. Putting little touches here and there. He sits in a special place with a nice green inchworm (a proper lady wearing a bonnet) to keep him company. When I get inspired I pick him up and add a lil something or other to him. At this point I'm trying to decide between nest or legs? I'm leaning toward nest with some babies peeking out. I dunno what do you think?
