Happy Halloween!

I like Halloween but we are not celebrating this year. I like to see all the kids in their costumes and I love pumpkins.
I couldn't find any pumpkins this year so I had to improvise.
We have a persimmon tree in our yard here in Korea so I drew a face on one of them. Whaddya think?

Can you see the gorgeous spinning wheel he is sitting on???? That is a birthday present from Lace-Lovin'Librarian. Diane, I am just overwhelmed by your generosity.
Look what else she sent:

This is the most amazing treasure box ever! I so LOVE it...that words cannot really express. Just see how awesome it is! Boy do I feel spoiled!
And that is not all....look what is inside:Some Lizbeth thread in one of my favorite colors, beads, thread winder and a totally awesome handwoven bookmark!

Also I wanted to share some flowers that hubby bought me....he doesn't buy flowers very often but when he does...he goes all out! I love them!

I wish everyday was my birthday! LOL

Happy Birthday Sherry! You are one lucky girl to receive such great gifts.

We definitely need to do a trade. How long have we been talking about it? I just have never been able to decide what to trade with all that you do. Let me know what you'd be interested in of mine and what you'd be willing to trade of yours.

What a clever "pumpkin"! And you got some very lovely treasures for your birthday - tatting and flowers! Other than chocolate, what more could you ask for? LOL!

Happy Birthday! (belatedly)

I am so happy for you! And, thanks for sharing the thoughtful gift sent by Diane.
I LOVE your persimmon pumpkin. I have a great receipe for persimon cookies, if you are interested. You know where I am! LOL
We had ABSOLUTLY Zero trick or treaters. Last year we had about twenty show up on the ridge. We turned all of the lights on ~ now what are we going to do with all of those tootsie rolls, and tootsie pops. What a bummer! I love to look at the costumes of the children. Not a big halloween person, but enjoy the children.
oodles of love and hugs,
Bev aka Ridgetatter

I love the persimmon pumpkin! I would never have known. Diane's birthday gifts are wonderful and so generous, as she always is. I know you will treasure them. The flowers are very pretty too.
