Fall Frolics #1

I was lucky enough to start my Halloween shenanigans  a week ago with the Witches Ball.  This year they paired up with a Local group that is in the Foot Parading Society during Mardi Gras her in Mobile, Alabama.  They are a Pirate society.  It was so much fun and I just love watching everyone in costume.  My friend Barbara went together.  She was a Pirate witch and I was a Leprechaun.  Fun times.  I have at least one other social Halloween gathering for sure but I hope I can find a few others to enjoy.  The night of the ball was also the Local  LODA Art Walk in Downtown Mobile, AL.  They have a Facebook page that shows some of the fun activities that they offer each month.  If you live in the area I recommend you check it out.

A Mellow Mad Tea Party!

Hello Dear Friends,

I welcome you to my Madly Mellow Tea Party. What is this you ask?  Well let me explain.  I am a part of a wonderful family. It is the Mellow Mushroom Family. The Mellow Mushroom is a pizza restaurant that sprinkles the US.  It is a hand tossed, hippy, trippy, craft beer serving, groovy tune playin kinda joint.  A fellow server friend (Suzy) who happens to be an amazing artist (with Mad Skills) painted the restrooms in a wonderful Alice in Wonderland theme. Which is perfect for this post.   And so the story begins.

Here we have Alice growing too fast.

Eat me! Drink me! Decisions decisions.

That crazy grin from the Cheshire cat really is perfect.


And who can forget the drunk Door Mouse?

Mr. Hare looks very confused but so dapper in his suit.

And this guy! He is perfectly painted.

His cloak means Mellow Mushroom = Pie (pizza pie)


Suzy has the neatest business called Paint the Town Mobile.

She does private parties and group events.  It is so much fun and a great way to

get your artistic groove on.

I hope you have enjoyed this little trip down the rabbit hole. It has been fun.

Now time to finish my pretzels and pizza!!!

Fun New Hobby!

I love decorating for all occasions / holidays.  I used to hang a seasonal flag on our house but our new house does not have a place to put a flag pole.  So instead I have hung wreathes or lights or both.  I figured “hey, I can make these decorations myself!” So my new hobby started taking form.  I got a saw, my husband helped me pick out the correct type of wood and I drew the designs myself. I have tons of craft paint so I knew I was well on my way.  I have to say learning how to maneuver the saw was the most time-consuming but it has gotten easier each project.  I hope to start selling my creations. It will be fun. I can personalize any of the Door Decor I make.

Here is a look at some of my creations.







I am working on a few new shapes for the holiday season. Check back for more soon!

If you are interested in anything let me know!

Until Then,
