Happy Halloween

This is how Joe looks every day. (ha ha ha!) I photocopied a wad of monopoly money and painted a monocle on his face. The top hat completes the look. People kept running circles around him to pass go and collect $200!

For my costume we attempted a mohawk using Elmer's glue as seen on the paint brush. Well my hair is just too long to manage the mohawk but we tried. I may look like I have dandruff for the rest of the week but that's just the dry glue still flaking off. I've had three showers to wash it out!

I dressed as Lisbeth Salander, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Sadly my spike collar didn't get shipped in time, so instead I wore a piece I made, a spiculum and anticlastic pendant. It went well with the goth theme.

I found a friend dressed as Tyrone Biggums, that was my favorite costume at the party!

The most beautiful yellow is found in my woods...

Pumpkin Carving

Joe and I didn't manage to carve pumpkin's this year but I enjoyed these two that we saw at the Peppermill.

Our woods

I've really been enjoying the change of season in our woods, capturing the sunlight as it burst through the clouds.

Statues at the Grand Palace

The details on the statues at the Grand Palace in Thailand are magnificent.

The colored details are little pieces of mirrored glass. Some of them are plain while others are a variety of colors. These mirror details were covering the outside of buildings, statues, and sculpture.

This statue in particular had such a great smile!

Thailand, Known as the Land of Smiles!

Our first day in Thailand we went to this beautiful temple! The golden bell shaped building to the left is the chedi which is a mausoleum for the Buddha's breast bone.

These tiny tiles cover the chedi and were individually hand foiled. Imagine if that was your job!

My Trip to Thailand

I've been gone for a while, in Thailand for 2 weeks and then jet lagged for another week. Joe and I chose Thailand for our vacation kind of on a whim and it was amazing. It such a beautiful country and I felt moved by the Budhist temples. I'll be sharing pictures and our adventures.

At this time there is catastophic flooding in Thailand that started while we were still there. Keep the people of the country in your thoughts and prayers.
