welcome to the family

Not our house but Samantha's house

So this is my new grand kitten, Ryland.

He has come to visit several times as he loves to ride in the car?

Look at all the toes.

He really is a sweet baby.

Working on Fall

I have been left with precious little free time the last few weeks.  So I decided to work on some finishes.

Including this one:

so it's ready for when the Halloween decorations go back in the bin.

time for the scary stuff...inside

I have taken the time to unpack my Halloween bins and create my first Halloween at the cabin

I put my new witch hat on a skull....love it

My mice keep walking off, with the help of the cats.  So everyday I find them put them back and then the cats are back on a mission to seek and destroy.

Everyone needs a purpose.  By the way, the plant lost.  I came home from work the other day to find the King of Scotland had again sought to seek the demise of my African violet and this time he fulfilled his mission, it was smashed all over the floor.
After a vigilant chase through the highland cabin I came no closer to kicking the Kings ass.  But his immediate dive for the cat door upon me entering the house proved his guilt.
I tried to salvage what was left, a pitiful mass of dirt, bruised leaves and will hope for the best.

I can only hope that on one of his missions he trips on his kilt.  Damn cat.

He is on the run again....

Sounds like a new spy thriller....
                        Or a headline for a jail break...
                                         A political headline from DC....

Well its out of Washington, D.C and it is thrilling, but not a jail break

Just my number #1 son, putting on his sneakers again and hitting the pavement.

He ran into one of his ROTC officers from Ithaca at the race... it is a small world.

Gosh, I just love this kid.

Autumn Wreath by Yankee Candle my favorite scent.  Again, sadly I am not paid to endorse this but am open to free candles, yes, please.

finish...what else would it be?

Geeze Louise...I am not much of a drinker so I have to be referring to my door knob.

As requested a close up.  This is the bronze hammered finish by Kyrlon, sold at Walmart. (nope, no one is paying me)  but if you want to, I'm open to the idea or free paint.

It was your normal worn brass that was ready to be replaced. But 5 bucks and change.  Looks like new.
