“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

For Ruby Tuesday....
The Gardenia bush has
some glow in the dark
CREATURE blooming!!!
I was in the Living Room all the time
...That's my alibi!
I DON'T KNOW 'IM, honest.
Maybe, it's the carpenter!






















There is a new treat for you...on my sidebar!!
"Sweet as Candy" award

  7. Chilling! Good thing you have a spot of red to warm things up!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comment. I like your name, Hootin' Anni.

    I don't recall my reason for doing so, (I was 3 or 4 yrs old at the time) but I nicknamed my grandfather Hootenanny. He loved it! (Probaby from watching the TV show back then!)

    Happy RT!

  14. Anni,

    I absolutely LOVED your heads and tails. What a talented lady you are. You never cease to amaze me. What an imagination.

    Your gardenia bush looks delightful with Mr. Skeleton nearby. I enjoy decorating for Halloween. Still haven't got much done around here. Doubting the inside will get transformed this year, but the boys want to do the outside, as we always have.

    Enjoy your day with Bud.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    The hibiscus doesn't seem to mind though.

  35. GROANNNNNNNNNNNNN on the Whodunit! LOL Loved it! hehe And look what you have growing in your Gardenia bush....leave it to you to grow glow in the dark skeletons! lol

    I just came back from the pharmacy and was thinking of you when I saw one of their Halloween decorations they have for sale...a 5ft tall witch and she's all dressed in black and purple, complete with gnarly hands and face...and she moves and cackles!! It's on for $79.98 but the salesgirl told me it will be going on sale for $59.98 next week and I'm soooo tempted to get it. I'd love to have her on my deck to greet the trick or treaters on Halloween night! lol I'll try to get a picture of her tomorrow in case I don't buy it or that it sells. xoxo
