Teddy's Favorite Time of Year

Teddy loves it when the decorations start coming out.


I think she picks up on my energy. I also think she is ready for cooler weather!


I love these little figures. They are only a little over an inch tall.


I can't remember where these came from but they have wonderful details considering how small they are.


I keep them in my cookbook cabinet all year long and they never cease to make me smile.


This is one of my favorite paintings. I bought it years ago at an auction. Click for a closer look.


This German set is made from cast iron.


My palmistry hand is out all year long in my library. Click for a better view of this too!

I don't blame Teddy for being excited about the cooler weather. That's quite the few coat she wears.

I want that painting!

Sharlene T. said...

Sorry, Guillaume, I think that was my painting -- in fact, I'm positive... I just need to let it hang in my living room for a few months (fall would work) to make sure... of course, getting it from Jaz, now, would be next to impossible with guard Teddy around... must. think. of. something...

I thought of you today when taking photos of my dying garden! I have many pumpkins and little squash in the shape of pumpkins and I thought..."who would love this? well Joyce would!!" I don't know anyone as excited about them as you!! I love your palmistry hand. I was trying to look at my hand and match it up. Great post and I signed up for the spell book!!

Awww...I love that second picture of Teddy. She could not be more cute if she tried. That little cast iron set is really cute with the little black cat and owl sitting there.

I love the witch picture. Does it have a name?

Yart said...

Your witch painting is absolutely amazing. Do you know who the painter was?

Suzie said...

That painting is awesome! I thought at first that maybe you had painted it. And more wonderful collectibles1 I'm so happy that you are sharing them with us. .I can just imagine going into your home. .my head would be constantly turning every which way!

Do you remember what was your very first Halloween piece? Do you still have it?

And yes! That darling Teddy no doubt picks up your enthusiasm. .she also knows that seeing these things means that cooler weather is coming. .she has experienced it enough times, to recognize the signs and remember. .
