free broom rides for fur babies

I need a good strong dose of autumn today. It's back up to the 90's the next few days and I'm getting a little droopy. Thank goodness for all the fall happenings around blogland.


So far I'm doing a total of 4 blog parties and an art challenge. Speaking of the art challenge. I gave up trying to find the other shoe to alter for my Autumn Altered Witch Shoe. I thought I put it in a 'safe place' so I wouldn't lose it of course, and what did I do? I lost it. Which gives me a good excuse to take a trip to my favorite thrift store today. I'm sure I'll find something fun there.

I'm finishing up a new 12x12 Halloween painting called "Broom Ride".
Here is a peek.


I came across an event called the Spooktacular Auction through my pet advocacy page Peace Paws Petunias. It's hosted by an organization that supports NW Indiana animal rescues and shelters. I thought I could donate my painting for the online auction happening next month.



I'm just waiting to get a final OK. They are in need of donations so if anyone out there would like to check it out you can visit their Facebook page HERE. I'll post more pics later with info on the auction for anyone interested in bidding on "Broom Ride" and helping out the fur babies :)

Have a great weekend.

Here in Arizona we pray for weather in the 90's :o) We've been steaming through a very hot very wet monsoon season with 110+ temps and sticky humid yuck. I guess its all what your used too.
All the best of luck with the auction.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

I have the feeling that your subconscious really wanted to go to the thrift shop, so it hid the other shoe. It is probably beaming with delight right now ;-)

I'll be back to check out the auction.

Awesome idea Anna. I always give to the Humane Society...They are always in need for donations. Love your painting.

I do hope you find the other shoe, but if you don't you'll do an awesome job on just one.
