Saw some cool little critters and creatures at Capstone’s Trunk or Treat this night. They held the event in the east parking lot of AmStar. Love the web on this little witchy. And her smile, of course. Hope your Halloween was full of laughter and giggles.

Ron Weasley’s nightmare

This spider jumped out at me as I drove down Main Street the other day. It’s quite cute — and so creative of the tenant to put it over the plastic covering the building’s upper window. Rennovations must be going on. The sign below the window says “The Fox at Anderson is coming soon.” My attention was caught in this ad’s web. 🙂

I wish I could remember this artist’s name. I love his work. Another portion of a piece from the Anderson Artist Guild Membership Show.

Stein so fine

This is only a portion of an amazing piece I saw at a recent Anderson County Artists Guild Membership Show. A friend pointed out this work was completed by Al Stein, of Stein Gallery. This portion of the piece only hints at the entire picture’s quality. The coloring is not quite the same. And there is a beautiful reflection below the barn that makes the overall piece for me. The subject is pretty cool, too. It must be a northern or western barn, I’m guessing. I’ve never seen one in this area with a stone foundation. Course, I’m neither barn nor art expert. 🙂

From the summer photo file. I doubt they’d be wearing short sleeves today. 🙂 I’m gonna need a light jacket as I head out. Wonder of wonders I might make it to church today. Capstone meets at AmStar Theater.

Boxer lover

I love doing drive-bys at PetSmart. We hit the jackpot one Saturday morning with these cute guys. The Boxer on the right attracted our attention, as he was eager to watch everything go by. When we got closer to snap a pic, his buddy on the left popped up. And then the owner appeared from the store. He was nice enough to let us take a group shot. A closer pic of the dogs is here.

Special house

Filed under: Homes — lessie @ 2:56 pm

Isn’t it amazing? The first time I stumbled by it, I stared in wonder. The inverted V over the porch is just beautiful. Would you say she’s a Queen Anne? I don’t know much about architecture, but want to learn. There is scaffolding off the left of the picture, so I imagine the owners are working on the old girl, getting her in shape. Additional pics are here.

I love Fall weather (when I’m not worrying about coming heat bills). I took the dogs out last night for a walk, and the air was refreshing. I stopped in front of the house with Cathey to chat, and relaxed my grip on the leashes. Maggie seized the opportunity to leap out of my grasp and chase a very pretty white cat. As I watched the cat run for its life, legs stretching far out in front and behind her, I found myself praying aloud, don’t catch her, don’t catch her, don’t catch her. And Maggie didn’t. But I was shaken nonetheless. The entire moment an overall grey, like this photo — taken a couple of Saturdays ago. The birds lifted off after I snapped the pic, flew in a circle, and settled back on the lines.

Yard sale surprise

Last Saturday. Yard sale down the street. It was fun to walk to it, enjoy the fresh air after the rain, meet the friendly neighbors, and examine their collection of children’s clothes and toys. When I saw this cute duck — I expected to open a box full of something fun, precious, and toy-like. Imagine my surprise when I pried up the metal top to find … a fuse box. Maybe? I closed it quickly in revulsion. I Googled the name, Midwest, and Midwest Electrical Products popped up. Sure enough, they use the duck as part of their logo for electrical parts. Who came up with that?

Joyous reception

Saw this banner a couple of weeks ago. April shot it for me. I love the joy revealed in the sign, in welcoming a loved one home, especially when he is home from a dangerous place. Thanks, April, for taking the pic!
