Top EC-droppers i October!

Thank you!

BeadedTail : Pets, jewelry, travel and fun!

These sites are my top ten EC-droppers for the month of October 2009. If you haven't visited these fine sites before, just click on their names. I am not showing anyone's widget-pictures this time, because I can't seem to get a picture from the month of October's number one top dropper, Beaded Tail. So today's photo is just one of little Elisabet with a bouquet of roses to give this post a picture to follow in the "LinkWithin".

I apologise to everyone who regularly drops on my blog. Thank you for dropping in spite of putting your blog at risk during an unknown number of days, when my blog was under attack by hackers. I would like to especially thank Jean's Musings and Seek No More for sending messages and warning me of this danger and suggesting remedies. I am now using a computor that has protection, while my other computor is being repaired.
I have a lot to learn about the nuts and bolts of blogging and am grateful to other bloggers who take the time to show me the ropes.
Thank you all so much!

Saturday's PhotoHunt Theme #185 "Bags"

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Bags".

Here are two bags of candy that Erik and Elisabet received on Halloween.

And here is Erik in his pirate costume for Halloween!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

We play princess while we are thinking about Halloween costumes. This is one of several crowns made of plastic beads that I made for Elisabet.

Mellow Yellow Monday # 41

This is the first time I post something for Mellow Yellow Monday. I really like the colour yellow, so I don't understand why I haven't done this before. And autumn is the perfect season for YELLOW.


Saturday's PhotoHunt Theme #184 "Tied"

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Tied". This is a rag-rug woven by a good friend of mine, Boyan Carlsson, who lived in Lunger, outside of Arboga, Sweden.

We have many of her handwoven rag-rugs in our home.
They are all finished with knots that are tied.

Wordless Wednesday: flowers after frost

This is what the flowers look like after a cold, damp night.

Some of the last flowers blooming before the final killer frost

As I have mentioned several times before, we have a lovely garden.

But I am always finding interesting plants along our neighbors' fence.

These bright red-orange flowers looked like this about a week or so ago. I don't know what they are called. If anyone can tell me what their name is in English, Latin or Swedish, I would be very grateful. According to Jakill from Jean's Musings, these flowers are nasturtiums. (Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me! Best wishes from Anna on October 14th 2009)

Yes they were this bright! I will miss the lovely greens and bright reds, oranges and pinks of spring and summer.

On the other hand, I can make jewellery as cheery as summer-flowers all fall and winter.

Please come visit again and see!

Welcome home Calle Cat! (CC meme # 79)

Calle Cat has spent the entire summer hunting and living like a wild-cat on the farm. But now that the weather has gotten cooler he is happy to come home to us in town.
This post is probably too late to be in the Camera Critter-meme #79, but for what it's worth I have a link to their page. I did not know that Calle would come home to us until I saw his wonderful orange-tabby furry self greet me when I came home from work.
Welcome home Calle! We've missed you!
