Happy Summer Solstice!

It's finally here, the longest day of the year!! I think about this day when we are in the middle of winter and dream of warm summer nights when its still light out at 8:30! Before you know it, it will be winter solstice. Time just seems to fly anymore. Snapped this awesome shot of this damselfly on Saturday. I got a foot away from him and he just sat there. Thought he was beautiful with the rainbow colors on him. He looked better in person. Click on the picture to see it up close.

So today made my trip to the antique mall and bought a few items. Got this wooden bench for $9.00 that I thought would be perfect for my little TV I have in my sewing room. And got this really old wooden suitcase that has a leather handle for $4.00 which I thought would be great for storing some of my sewing stuff. It has a mirror inside in the top. And then got this little cat rusty bell for $3.00.


Then today I finished up my other new Halloween creation. I think it looks like my ghost is afraid of the little mouse on top of the pumpkin. It was fun to put together. What do you think? Should I make a pattern for it? Will be putting it in my etsy shop
tonight. I have a few more ideas running around in my head for Halloween. Time to get back to work.! Have a great evening on this longest day of the year!

Great "thrift" finds, especially like the suitcase (lots of possibilities for usage.) Your ghost, pumpkin and mouse are too cute, great idea for a pattern!
