Tardis Door

As promised, this is Mr Man's Dr Who door to the Tardis.  He made everything himself except for the peel'n stick Police Public Call Box sign, which by the way, was really difficult to get on straight & level.

The door is actually to our cold/fruit cellar which is just off our home theatre room, in the basement.  The door knob will one day be replaced by a dark blue one to blend/fade into the door.  A door knob isn't part of the Tardis's door, but we have to have quick access to this little room as it also serves as our safe room during tornado watches & warnings in the summer months.   And yes that's a snitch, caught from our first Quidditch game, sitting on one of the surround speakers!

TGIF - A Month of Thanksgiving #4

Thank you to Dr Brene Brown for this change up on TGIF; Trusting, Grateful, Inspired & Fun.

Trusting:  that all the peanuts I have been feeding to my chipmunks help get them through the winter months.

 Grateful:  for some amazing tools to use in the garden, the electric, battery charged,  hand clippers are amazing. 

Inspired:  by the courage of my friend who underwent surgery & now chemo treatments for breast cancer. It was during her regular mammogram check up that the lump (deep & small) was found.  Ladies please don't forget to get your mammogram!

Fun: Mr Man is a big Dr Who fan, so when he was working on his home theatre room, the cold cellar/fruit cellar is just off that room, so he turned that door into the Police Call box front from Dr Who.  He built most of it himself & just ordered the peel & stick logos online.

TGIF - A Month Of Thanksgiving #3

Thank you to Dr Brene Brown for this change up on TGIF; Trusting, Grateful, Inspired & Fun.

Trusting  that I've read the bands of our garden woolly caterpillar correctly; Folklore believes "If the rusty band is wide, then it will be a mild winter. The more black there is, the more severe the winter."  The photo is from the Internet, ours had even bands.

Grateful for a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner this past Monday.

Inspired or Intrigued:  by nature's wonderment in this large mushroom puff ball.  There are several people in our little village that gather these puff balls when first formed to cook & eat - they say quite tasty.  This puff ball has split as it is older so not one for eating.

Fun  a lovely drive out to witness Mother Nature's spectacular Autumn wardrobe & what made it fun was that Mr Man agreed to stopping when ever I wanted to take a photo.

TGIF - A Month of Thanksgiving #2

Thank you to Dr Brene Brown for this change up on TGIF; Trusting, Grateful, Inspired & Fun.

Trusting that the advertised over the counter cold relief medications actually do work.  Seems my parting gift from my current employer is a head cold!   6 more days!

Grateful that the overnight frosts have not killed off the majority of my summer pots of pretty pink flowers.  Still time to enjoy & savour the joy.

Inspired with all the online postings of some beautiful cards made during World Card Making Day (Oct 5th).  Here's 3 I made at a workshop.

Fun  with a friend when we went to see Downton Abbey, the movie.  It was delightful to see The Dowager again & of course our Edith does look delightfully happy (still).  I really liked the actress that played Queen Mary & I got very teary during the scene of the review of the troops when they played God Save The King (remember it was 1927 & King George V was on the throne).  The entire audience had a laugh out loud moment at Mr Mosley's curtsy.

TGIF - A Month of Thanksgiving

Thanks to Dr Brene Brown for giving us TGIF; Trusting, Grateful, Inspired & Fun.

Lace over brown burlap table runners

Trusting: That the skies will clear, the rain will stop for some sunshine time to go out & photography the beautiful Autumn leaves.

Grateful: For a stash of beautiful Autumn papers that I already own.

Inspired:  by Pinterest 31 Days of Thankful prompts.  Lots of free inspiration there. In the end the exchange rate was too much to join in the official 31 Days of Thankful.

Fun: Decorating the house for Autumn, The Harvest & Thanksgiving celebrations.  Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday to celebrate.  There's the food that is traditionally only made at Thanksgiving - ooohhh pumpkin; there's decorating & there's no pressure of gift giving - just count your blessings.
