Enjoying the View

I'm having trouble these days staying inside and staying on task! The weather has been beautiful. The leaves are falling almost as soon as they're changing colors. This is the first Fall that we're enjoying in our new surroundings so I thought I better snap some pics before the leaves are all gone. The view is changing so quickly that I need to keep the camera handy. The hubby and I have been fighting colds this week, but the only thing its kept us from doing is painting the inside of the house! How can we make ourselves stay inside and miss out on the beautiful weather? This week, I've thought of my Dad very often. He would have been 80 on the tenth. We would have been having one of our big 'ole family parties. Oh how I miss that Man! I have been working on some Santa's, but today, I just haven't been able to work because of nature's beautiful distraction. Enough said, one more walk in the trails and I'll get back to work. ~ Debbie

AUBREY, a Halloween Witch

This is the last of my Halloween creations this year. She's a sweet witch going on ebay tonight. I've really enjoyed creating for this Halloween season, but I have to take a break to do some much needed painting and rearranging in this "new to us" house--at least while my dear sister is willing to help! ~ Debbie

CAT & JACK on the BOX

Still enjoying creating for Halloween, I'm listing this Cat & Jack on the BOX tonight on EBay. I'm working on one more Halloween Creation, but its slow going here. We've got renovations going on full speed. Soon I'll be moving on up! Up to the newly finished top level of our house where my studio will be. Hopefully we only have a week and a half of waiting. I'm really excited.

Have a great week-

Freddie Jack

Labor Day has passed. The kids are back to school. The traffic is bad again, but the weather is looking great! We don't have any 90 degree weather in our forecast! I've even some leaves falling! Halloween is just around the corner and we have all of the beautiful colors of fall to look forward to seeing. If my house wasn't going through some major renovating, I would pull out my Halloween Decorations and amazingly I even know where they are. I made sure of that when the moving van was being unloaded! I've created a little pumpkin head man for the season. Freddie Jack is my latest creation listed on Ebay ending on Sunday, September 12. You can click on my ebay link to the right of the page to see more of him.

Have a wonderful week~Debbie

Oh Deer!

This morning I was excited when I looked out my window and saw the sweetest baby deer. It walked around the side of my house and I took some pictures. They're not the best pictures, because of the screens in the kitchen windows. I was afraid I would scare them away if I opened a door. Its sibling was over the fence. Then another deer came over the fence and into the trails. This one I am assuming was Mama. She snorted and they jumped the fence together. They were a sight to behold.

I want to wish all of you a Happy & Safe Labor Day Weekend! ~Debbie

Spooky Halloween Vulture

This is what I worked on this week. I've never made a vulture before, but when a special customer requested that I make her one, I was glad for the challenge. I had a lot of company yesterday, and the old buzzard got a lot of compliments. I thought I would share a picture of him. ~ Debbie

Good Ole Summertime

I've been complaining too much about the heat and humidity this summer. Those triple digits just made me feel like a big ole sack of potatoes--blah! When I received these pictures from my daughter-in-law, I realized that summer does have its advantages like watermellon and Vacation Bible School. My grandsons are growing so fast and to see Elliot (almost 1 year old) eating watermellon, and Jackson (3 years old) at Vacation Bible School puts everything else in perspective.

I'm back to creating my dolls!!???? It felt so good to actually create a doll after so much time off. We're getting settled into our new surroundings and enjoying a different lifestyle. Last weekend I set up my temporary studio. It sure felt good to have my fingers back in touch with the sewing machine, paints, fabrics and needles. I made this little witch for the Her name is Lissa Beth and she'll be showing up late, late tonight.

Happy Memorial Day

Remembering all of the brave heroes that paid the ultimate price for our freedom and liberty. From my home to yours, may you have a safe and blessed Memorial Day. ~ Debbie

Hope all of you had a wonderful Memorial Day! I just got the news that my favorite soldier is going to be in town in a couple of days. He is stationed in California. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan. I haven't seen him since he got home from his last tour. His Aunt Debbie is so proud of him and can't wait to give him a big ole hug.

One Step Closer

We've put a contract on this house out in the country. It has 5 acres and my guys are really excited. Lord willing, we'll be moving in the end of June! I'll have to change internet services so I'm loading up on printer ink (unless I can use a cd) so that I can save all of my important emails and contact lists. Since this house is no longer on the market and I don't have to take the dogs with me everywhere I go, I'm having lunch with a friend. Have a great day- Deb

Update for May

I can't believe that it's almost the middle of MAY!! I thought I would give you a little update on the house situation. We have a contract on our house and we have to scramble now to find another home. Of course nothing is certain in real estate until after the settlements, but you must trust that all will go well. As people have come to look at our house, I've been spending lots of time in my car with the dogs. They are loving it. When my cell phone rings, they think its time to go. It doesn't matter when it rings, or maybe I'm just turning it on--they are ready. They follow me through every room of the house as I'm cleaning--every single day that it was on the market. This has been an exhausting experience, and it isn't over. I can't wait to get my hands back into creating full time again. I was able to update my page this month with a Patriotic Uncle Sam, thanks to the help of Sweet Sandy! Wishing all of you a blessed May-

Sad to Say--My Last Listing For Awhile

This is my White Rabbit that will start on EBay tonight and end this Sunday Night. He's my little part of the Alice in Pfattland challenge.

It's with mixed emotions that this will be my last creation for awhile. We've decided that it is time to make a move. We've lived in this home for 14 years and we need to move on. I have tons to do in the process and guess I'll be sorting out my feelings during the process. I know God has a plan and we pray that we will have His protection throughout this ordeal and put us in the house that He wants us to call home.

Please be sure to check out all of the wonderful Pfatt Ebay listings this week, I think you'll find them to be a real treat.

Take care-

Stuck in Rabbit Mode

I'm stuck in a Rabbit mode in my creations and may well feel like I'm stuck in a Rabbit Hole as we get ready for another big snow storm. If you can't reach me, you'll know why. Here's my offerings for the update late tonight. Have a safe and warm evening ~ Debbie

Maybe You Have to Be Young to Appreciate It!

Maybe you have to be young to appreciate the snow. That doesn't mean we aren't thankful to God for watching over us and protecting us through this winter storm. We have some storm damage, but things could be much worse. My grandson was excited about all of the snow! We got 32" here. The digging out will take awhile and I'll bet we're going to see the remnants of this storm for quite a while.

Enough is Enough!

We are getting hammered by a snowstorm here in the No.Va/DC area. It may look pretty but enough is enough! We woke up to no power this morning and it was getting pretty cold in here. While the power is back on, I thought I'd post some pictures of this snowstorm we're in. I took these a couple of hours ago and we've had more inches accumulate since then. Its only a little after 1 on Saturday and its not supposed to stop until tonight. Its a scary situation. We've got huge cedar trees breaking right next to our house. Its a frightening situation.

Happy Groundhog's Day

I just love Groundhog's Day! It sounds like we're going to have another 6 weeks of winter and to celebrate, its going to snow here today. Me and Phil go back quite a few years. I have so many fond and fun memories of Groundhog's Day.

In my youngest years, I can remember the fantastic birthday parties together with my brother, 2 years older and his birthday is 5 days later than mine. In the photo above, I'm the one standing up.

I'll never forget how my elderly Grandaddy would call me up and ask me if I saw my shadow! The funny thing was, I was the only grandchild he would call on their birthday. I didn't know that for many years.

I remember when I was about 12 years old, my aunt took me on a bus ride to Clarendon. I thought we were going shopping and she thought she was going to surprise me and take me to get a permanent. She had waited until we got on the bus to tell me. Well, we ended up shopping because there was no way I was getting a permanent. She was special Aunt.

One of my most precious memories is of my Dad bringing me 40 long stemmed red roses when I turned 40. Boy do I miss Mom & Dad!

There was the first time in about 20 years that my husband and I took off, without kids for a weekend trip to celebrate our birthdays. His birthday was just 10 days ago. Since then we've tried to keep up the tradition.

There's so many more birthday celebrations to remember like lunches with friends and sweet phone calls from family and friends and who can forget the excitement on the face of your little ones when they hand you your birthday card.

Looking back at all of my fond memories of Groundhog's Day, I've realized the birthday memories were never about the gifts I received (although they were all nice and I wish I could remember all of them), but the memories are all about the moments and people I hold dear. :)

Just had to make a George Washington

I just couldn't let a January go by without making a George Washington. Its been at least a couple of years since I made a fully clothed George. George's clothes are always a challenge, but I enjoyed the challenge. He's the one and only stand up George I've made. George is my first Ebay auction for 2010. He starts tonight and ends on Sunday.

Stay warm-
