Here are some random things that have happened around the house lately.
I've had this little ceramic Jack O' Lantern for a long time, and it's sporting a new hair style...a new Tillandsia (air plant).
Jack came with one many years ago, when I bought it for my mom.
I ran across some Tillandsia in a gift shop the other day, and now he's lookin' good again.
Mom had a brown thumb, bless her heart, and even though the Tillandsia requires almost no care, it didn't survive.
Here's Jack, with two other Tillandsia that I bought at the same time. The orchid blooms dropped, so I added the spooky Tillandsia to the stems.
Jack shows up in different spots around the house during October...just for fun.
This pic is from 2011, but I do something similar every year on the deck.
After Thanksgiving, I'll exchange the Fall wreath for a Christmas one, and the pumpkin for a large orb, or holiday arrangement.
Remember my fear of door wreaths and the praying mantis?
Click HERE if you missed that post.
The praying mantis stayed in the wreath for exactly one week.
Later, we saw her on the side of the house, and then she disappeared.
So, I breathed a sigh of relief. No more praying mantis...I hope. Well, three days later, guess what?
No, it's not the praying mantis again.
Can you see what it is?
A tree frog!
What is it with my door wreath that keeps attracting critters?
Thankfully, it left after a couple of days. Hubby spotted it in one of the urns beside the door. What next? On to other things...
...here's a Fall vase filler I found at Pier One. Not sure exactly what they are, but they look like little pumpkins.
This larger one looks sort of like a pumpkin/tomato cross. :)
That's about all I've done lately, and the days are flying.
I can't believe I've been looking at Christmas decorating ideas on Pinterest, and I haven't even decorated for Halloween yet.
