12 x 12 "Owl" canvases

Still sharing some of my by projects from the Fall Open House.  These look so small in these photos.. but they are actually 12x12 canvases.   I spent a little time drawing out a simple owl pattern that I could change up as I wanted... then broke out the canvases.
This one is a natural colored canvas that I just misted around the edges with harvest orange Glimmer Mist.

This one I did on a denim 12 x 12 canvas in bright colors and patterns I thought might be fun for a babies or girls room.  I was excited because the mommy who bought it was going to use it for just that... a baby's nursery.
You can see the background much better in the photo below. 
Only half way crafty thing I've gotten done this week, is that I finally found the material that I liked, so I broke out the staple gun and covered the top of this piano bench to sit in the hall.   When we moved things around after we got the new furniture this Summer.. there was a blank space against this spot in the hallway.  I couldn't stand it, but didn't really know what to put there. I didn't want anything that would stick out in the hall way to much.  I know me.. and I'd be banging my shin on it a 100 times a day. lol    Cheap fix for now... this piano bench will work, until I find what I want.

I love baking... especially in the Fall.  This week, I had some apples to use up.   Oh.. the smell in here, was the BEST!

Ummm.... think this dog is spoiled much?   I love that Daisy lets me snuggle her, because Molly is not a snuggler at all.  If you even sit a bit to close to her, she'll get up and move.   Daisy would sleep like this all night if I let her.    They way we spoil our dogs, can you even imagine what we'd be like if we ever had grand kids. lol
I hope your all doing well, and enjoying Fall.  It's a beautiful day out today, but it sounds like the weather might start being icky this week, so I better get out and enjoy it now.
Huge thanks, as always... for stopping by!

Hi Vic, love your owls, especially the girly one!

Seeing Daisy all tucked in asleep on her back reminds me of Otis as he's always sleeping on his back and often has all 4 legs in the air. We doggie sat this weekend.
