Winner of "Animals" Challenge: Alice K

Well I'm on the ball today ~ my August Animals challenge ended a few minutes ago and I've already done the random drawing for the winner. The magic random number generator gave me #56, so the winner is Alice K of Yellow House Studio, for her sweet little bird card with gold sheet!

Congratulations to Alice and to everyone who entered. I'm so happy to see so many entries this time! I hope the next challenge theme will be just as popular. It's another month-long challenge for September, and this time the theme is Fairies & Mermaids. So get ready, and come back tomorrow!

Autumn Fairy & August Musings

I may be the only one, but I love August. This morning the air is just slightly cool and the sky is a brilliant pure blue. The sunlight has that slanted 'Light in August' sort of melancholy feel, like you can feel something is ending, and the grass on the way to my mailbox is sparkling with dew and spiderwebs. There are still summer locusts whirring (a Southern sound!) but the squawking September blue-jays have already arrived. I guess I just love the shift of seasons, the in-between times. In August the Wheel of the Year turns toward Autumn. It's not here yet, but you can feel sadness of the end of summer, along with the promise of that cool Fall air.

So, it's got me feeling reflective. Autumn always does that!

Here is an Autumn fairy ~ notice the grapes, which are harvested in September and October, I think? She is a hint of my next challenge theme, which starts a week from today!

speaking of animals...

Last night I'm sitting down to start a post about the second week of the 'Animals' theme, and my husband comes in with .... a kitten! I have a definite weakness for all kitties, but I've already reached my established and agreed-upon limit of three cats. DH set this limit, so I was astonished when he brought Delilah home. Yes, my son has already named her. She is adorable and has an amazing personality. After bouncing all around the house all morning, she is now sleeping on a blanket by my feet. Do you (or my husband) REALLY believe I can give her away?
The only thing that might help me give her away to another good home, would be the fact that my eldest cat, Violet, is very displeased about this intruder...

FOLLOW UP: Upon closer examination, I have just decided that "Delilah" is a boy! I'm thinking "Eli."

Further Follow Up: His name is JASPER. :-)
