Heard an Owl Out My Window ~ Full Moon on Toledo ~ Happy Halloween !

Tonight
the
Great Pumpkin
was in
the
Window !
Big
and
Orange !
The full moon had been out just nights ago ....
Halloween !

Just after dusk the doorbell began ringing !
Here at our house, I have been giving out gently used books
for the past 3 years ... 

And now the wee children have come again  ...
a tiny lady bug,
a very little
Woody from Toy Story,
a robot,
a zoot suited cool dude,
a wee Indian,
an orange crayon,
a cheerleader,
many more sweet little faces
and the friendliest parents and caregivers ~!
Not one batted an eye that the treat was books, in fact,
they seemed relieved and very thankful ~ it was wonderful !

Angels Watchin' Over Thee My Lord ... Halloween ~ All Soul's ~ Dios Dos Muertos ~ Election Day !

So much
happening
in the next few days !
Hopefully
the Hurricane
will behave  ~
Thinking about Angels,
the Christkindl, KrisKind, Jezisek, Legends, Folklore,
Fairies, Myths, Holidays, Christmas, Faith, People, Future, Elections, Folks ...

 
Wishing for all things to go well of course !

 
These are some new handmade oval mother of pearl
Christkindl Angel Earrings I have made ...
I will have pendants too ~
They are lovely and large ~ a wee bit more than an inch in height !
 
 
Obviously, I kind of like to think of Christmas all year long !
 
 
Why visit the olive bar when you can where them on your ears ?
 

Gather ye pecans and persimmons while ye may ...
I used to make a persimmon pecan bread
(just substitute the persimmon pulp ~ no skin ~ in your banana bread recipe)  Slices best when frozen.

Roll Out the Barrels We'll All Polka 'Til Dawn ... Kirsten Tannenbaum Earrings by Mom Celebrates Oktoberfest, One Day at a Time ...

One
Bead
at a Time !
 
 
And the Bead goes On !  
Yes,
I like to Polka,
and
Yes
I like
Beer and Music !
 
It's just that I've learned
that what is best for me ~
Mom ~
Is to keep the Serenity in my Serendipity ~
If  you know what I mean ? 
 
 
That's the way I like it !
 
 
Soon Halloween will be here,
and I have books ready for the children !
Aww C'mon,
Books?  
Yes ! 
They actually go over really well! 
They are gently used and read
and ready again for the next child ~
oodles of
children's picture books !
Just a sampling !
 
 
There are so many books,
flowers, beads, stories, children,
we have to make good time
if we are
to use them all !
 
Looking forward to the holidays and the
Tulsa Christkindlmarkt,
I found a lovely blog with some very helpful information about
(thanks to Rick Steves)
such as the Christkindl tradition in Europe
and its history :

Pumpkin Fall Orange Wood Leaves Trees Gold Fever

Lately
I've
been
getting
a
lot
of
 inspiration
from
some
very
young
minds ...
 
 
There is
nothing
like
a
  kindergartener
to
put
 our
lives
in
perspective !
 
 
They have a
unique and pure view
of our world that only
youngsters
enjoy ...
an it is so very refreshing!
 
 
We have our holidays and traditions
and pass them along ...
they can only
wonder and learn ...
 
 
And it is up to us
to pass on this world properly ...
Like knots on a counting rope
we teach them the stories
we think they ought to learn ...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Digression: 
I found this very cool swifter mop head at Harvest Moon for myself !
 
 
 
 
 Resa and Loyal Tannenbaum Customers ~
Fall 2012
 
 
Did you find all these new creations at the Harvest Moon Festival ?
If not, be sure and catch Resa again soon at one of the upcoming
local events :

Here is a sneak peek at my new Fall 2012 Gold Fever Collection :
 
 
Each of these pairs of earrings can be purchased on eBay
~ searchable by the number ~ I hope they all fit here !
 
Back to Kindergarteners ...
I don't think they really care about earrings ..
What they care about most, is someone to listen to them.
 
Someone to tie their shoes.   Someone to read them the story. 
Many small things like that, which all add up to being very important.
We need to be there for them.   But happy earrings help. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
I see those words
"Nothing you do for a kindergartener is ever wasted"
and they are a strong mandate from Garrison Keillor
 to do a good job, no matter how simple it might seem,
the words carry much importance.
