Trying to embrace Fall

Although it's still kind of warm and we have our air-conditioner on, I am trying to welcome fall with a few decorations.

So I added some fall to my mantle's.

I like how the lights add a warm cozy glow.

Looking forward to using my new fireplace doors this winter.  They were half the price of lowest doors in a local fire place store and came through the mail and so easy to put in all by myself.

My flowers are still holding on.

I printed these and inserted them in my lights so the glow would all match. I like the effect - a softer warm glow to match my orange lantern lights and its so easy.

Happy Fall Everyone!

Your thoughts on selling online...

I added color to a memorial plaque that hangs by where Giddy and Gwenie are buried.

Another bearded iris garden plaque. I'm almost to the point of having enough of these to sell. I was going to post them On Etsy but now I don't know if I will. I ran into a couple people that said they have encountered people On Etsy that lie and say that their item arrived damage. So that you have to replace it. The lead time on creating these plaques is very long. First I have to create them, then a long slow drying time so they do not crack or explode, sanding then firing.  Then painting and glazing. If I encountered people lying and asking for a replacement I would totally lose any chance for a profit. I am wondering your thoughts or ideas. Please email me.
