World Series

This is what you see driving up to the Ballpark...

These flags are all over the streets near the ballpark.
And here we have the proof:Rangers are in the World Series...
still surreal~ Antler Up!

Rangers won the pennant last night-beating the Yankee's 6-1!
NEVER did we think the words, "the Rangers are going to the World Series" would come from our mouths! We were lucky in 1996 to be at the game when they clinched the division and got to go to the one game here-but were beaten by the Yankee's that yr-they lost, but it was still exciting that they got to the play-offs at all. THIS is surreal. What a great feeling...

This little guy was our project at the October art mtg. Traci of Art-T-Dolls generously shared this pattern with us so we could each have our own batty character. (you can find them for sale on her site-among other creatures) they were great fun and each ended up with it's own little personality.
These are the spiders i made for my art meeting on sunday~they don't photograph very well though. They started out as styrofoam balls, then morphed into these. If it's october, that means i've broken out the halloween socks. This is my newest pair.

These are 2 swaps i received at the meeting-now adorning my house. Love them. One on left is from Traci and the right is from Donna

And finally, a peek at the last piece of art i finished. Will post more pictures soon. I'm working on several pieces that will be headed to missouri for sale in a cool antique store...

Catching Up~

First, if you go here you can enter for a chance to win these wonderful earrings! Wish i could say I had made them, but that's not the case. love the resin paper!
My aunt Norma and her friend Jan were here last wk. I took some time from working to spend
time with them and my mom on their shopping treks. With Norma, that's the only way to say it-she hits every store known to man. (of course, i tend to do the same when i travel too)
We spent fri hitting estate and garage sales. I got a pr of gloves and an old book on ettiquette. They will both be finding their way into my art pretty soon. I also got stung by a wasp again on mon-same hand, lower spot on my wrist and 2 days of swollen monster hand.
Sun we all met up at Joe T Garcia's for brunch. Gary and i had tea and visited as they chose to eat outside. NOT a fan of outside dining when flies/birds and birdshit become part of the experience and all of the above did. I met up w/them later and went to the stockyards. Saw a fabulous skirt and shirt that would have been really cute, but for over $300.00 they both stayed in the store. Spent tues with them in Grapevine before taking them to the airport that afternoon. This is their 3rd visit together and it was nice that i had no bodily injury this time that kept me at home~

Help "A Place to Bark"

If you go here to watch this video, you can rate it to help Bernie's animal rescue. She is a one
woman operation for the most part doing all she can to save dogs and cats from being put down.
In the past 5 yrs she has rescued 2500 animals-and if she gets enough votes can win 25,000 to $250,000 towards her rescue mission!

Donna VS. Wasp(s)

The wasp(s) won. Not sure if there was more than one-just felt a sudden sting, said a bad word as i brushed it off of me-never saw it. Nice results though..
last night
