1300 Things: Week 29

Week 29... Yup, I am picking up just wehere I left off. The last 1300 post that I published was on July 18th. Rest assured that I have continued to have immense gratitude every minute of every day since then. 
I want to thank those of you who have emailed me to check on me... concerned about my absence, or just to tell me how much you have missed my blog posts... each and every one of those emails have filled my heart and given me heaps more to be grateful for. 
I treasure you all. 

700.  You. My continued readers. & You, my new readers.   
701.  Rose water cookies. 
702.  Truly amazing sunsets.
703.  Truly amazing sunrises.    
704.  Recycling an entire file cabinet's worth of old useless papers.     
705.  New neighbors who aren't a group of 21 year old guys.
706.  My cutest customer (best customer appreciation photo ever!)::

the boo boo face was from the wrestling she had to endure to claim the pillow from her older brother. 
707.  New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough region... yum!

I snap a lot of photographs these days. 
They are all shot and edited with my 3GS iPhone. I post some to Instagram, and I post some to Flickr... I thought I'd share a few of my favorites from the past week with you here now::

Spooky Cute!

Now available.... 
Spooky Cute Skully Journals  

I have stitched it up again... this time with dem dry bones.  
All of the boney pieces and parts are meticulously cut out by hand and machine stitched onto a morbidly cute colorful background. I then stich the artwork onto the cover of a Moleskine Journal.

There are 5 colors and 2 page styles to choose from::
Cauldron Black •  Putrid Pink •  Blood Red •  Nightshade Navy •  Menacing Mustard 
Grid or Lined pages

Available now in My Etsy Shop... 
Go get 'em before they get YOU first! 

I am curious to know.... Trick-or-Treat, Old-Timey Poison Bottles, or Yo Ho Ho Ho....
For You, is the skull & crossbones motif more associated with Pirate or Halloween themes? Leave me a comment below, telling me where your mind travels to when you see this skully-boney icon.
