Saturday Snippets

OK .. obviously this "guy" does NOT know that smoking is bad for your health ? ... let alone what it can do when you are wearing a pumpkin on your head ?
I have read this one trying to figure out .. is this a boy ?
I know she is a girl .. I think ?
The art work of this one is amazing .. reminds me of some children's books but I can't remember which ones .. it is a beautiful illustration !
These two are headed to a BIG party some where I'm sure !
I think I should have shot this in better light (my office) .. none of the colours are as they should be .. but hey .. what the heck anyways ?

Even the plates have masks .. they were a great bargain ! .. the masks that is !
These moments of the gold tree top were awesome .. pictures can't catch what I actually saw .. but hey .. I have to try and capture the moment if I can .. "light" is alive to me .. it moves so quickly at times it becomes frustrating .. but I grab what I can.
It was like the top of this tree was on fire for those moments ...
From the sublime to the ridiculous ?
Nah ... just some girlie talk between Emma and Sophie ... Emma pulling faces as she was trying to get Sophie's undivided attention.
Then some one said "SUPPER" and Sophie quickly gathered her self and became INTERTESTED !!!

What a great idea to add masks to your plants and other decorations. That spooktacular night will soon be here.

Those vintage cards are so neat to see. They do look like some pictures from children's literature.
I have a Delft plate like the one on the right! Fun

Cindee girl ! I have to get over to your place and thank you for that Jackie Lawson card with the kitty, it was CUTE !
Yes ! I know those candy cigs you are talking about .. in fact I think they had Popeye on the pack too .. funny eh ?

Linda how is your daughter doing ? do you think the little one will stay put until the 31st ? LOL
I hope so .. that would be so fun having Halloween as your birthday : )

Janet girl ! Where did you get your plate from ? I collected a few pieces and love them to bits : )
A big yes to some of the illustrations they are amazing !

Ha the smoking pumpkin! Nice photos Joy. You're obviously having a blast with Halloween coming up.

And I love the wall display! Great idea to add masks to your plates.

Lovely prints in the style of Norman Rockwell right? Halloween is getting closer by the minute and I know you must be most excited! Me, I'm still stuck on getting ready for winter I've not even had time to decorate. Kind of sad so I should get to it.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hi Martha .. yup ! although other boring jobs like cleaning the house to get on with ,I swing as much Halloween in as possible ?
These are "Dollar Store" masks they had at our neighborhood one .. I was amazed by them .. so I had to gather up one of each kind at least .. I really should stop collecting SOON ! haha

Tina .. I'm not sure who the original illustraters are .. no information where I picked them up really .. but they are gorgeous aren't they ? .. You worry too much about winter .. take a few days off and enjoy some Autumn time and HALLOWEEN !!!!

Gulp, comment supressed on those first few postcards if they really were supposed to be boys, Joy! I know that back in the distant day they dressed boys and girls alike for quite a while. In these days, when everyone wears jeans and tees, I guess maybe we've come full circle, eh?! Love the Emma/Sophie shots where Sophie ignores Emma but somehow ignites at the mention of supper!!!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

'ben" You forgot the other MUST in youth fashion "pajama" bottoms ! I don't know if they wear them there , but you see them a lot here and it is too funny !
Yup ... any mention of 'food" to Sophie and she is off to the races .. Emma knows 2 tricks .. how to get bottled cooler water .. and how to bang on the cupboard door for food .. Sophie supports her by patiently waiting ? haha
