~ the CROW Costume Contest... . .

with an October window to install...

in between the fall Tarts...

i chose a few crows to line up in the window
for a bit of drama...
painted on my favorite crepe paper for the backdrop...
done.
right~*
Well... .

of course, it started out
 quite innocently with a rather 'plain' crow...
and just thinking that they needed a little something
so the first one got a simple fabric twist adornment
and then the black & white papers
and the scissors
and the little pins
starting finding their way to the design table...

they had such a natural stance,
such grace,
such presence... .
( and such wisdom, that of course,
they would never tell.... )
~ with all of them
just milling about
in their little outfits...
i just had to give them numbers
for a bit of a costume parade of sorts
... and the costume contest was born.
~ so... .   .
 here now
are the entries for the
" C R O W
C O S T U M E   C O N T E S T "

#4

#5
'ribbon tie'


 # 6

~so into the box they went,
off to hop into the window....

into the spot lites...
and hanging on the chandelier~*

i think they're glad they put up with all the fuss.... ~*

~ hold still, hold still..... thank you.......

ok...

so it's time again
 for an 
October window... .   .
( .....um, excuse me?)

with the first
and probably last
annual... .


and yes, 
i did get a lot of
attitude and
' looks '
from the group....

(....seriously?)

( ....you're kidding with the tutu, right?)

(....and, actually,
 i thought we were all 'guys'?)

(.....i mean, we're crows.
we just don't do this.
do we?)

(....well, i do look kind-a cool.)

~ so,  more to come.

stay tuned..... .  .     .

~so it's flashback friday, huh.... . .

~funny, now that i finally can feel the delightful relief of a cooler season approaching.... .

i find this saved draft that i never posted.... .   .


*~ s p r i n g !  ... .   . yes ?

the spring flowers are once again being painted on the shoppe windows... .   .






and the uplifting colors are starting to re-appear
while i start to remember the feel of that

 'perfect little sundress'... .   .

dancing against my bare legs.

truly one of the best parts of being female~*




" the dress "... .   . 
has always been a very
*  inspiring  *
image for me.
one even hangs on my calling card.



i've displayed them.
drawn them.
painted them.
 sculpted them.
.  . ...as well as sewn them and of course,
   worn them.
to me... .  the quintessential personal adornment.


they're like... .  .  wearing candy......... .

(( hmmmmmmmm... . the imagination is running with that one~ sorry... ))

~yummmmm............. .   .     .
