A spider’s web on a witch’s hat is all that you will see that relates to spiders today! Rusty
is ready for Halloween! Isn’t she cute??? She’s lost her witch’s broom. But she really looks like she needs a cuddle. She’s one of the bears I make in my Wilde & Woolly Bear collection.
Are you ready for Halloween?
The sun was trying to come up in the fog! We often don’t have much fog. But one morning, it was thick as the proverbial pea soup surrounding the house. I ran back inside to get my camera before it disappeared!
More of a view of the fog on a nice Halloweenish day, albeit a bit early. This was a view of my neighbor’s yard that normally you can see clearly. I’m always looking for neat foggy backgrounds for a vampire book cover, well, I had it!!!
Perfectly spooky, right?
All the ghosts and witches and wait, black and white kitties and a black and white panda bear? Oh well, they wanted to be part of the plan! My mother gave me the black and white kittens and panda. Except panda is distracted. Hey, look at the camera, this way!!
I had a black and white cat, Trixie, who was full of the devil and my baby for years. So I have a collection of black and white cats! Just pretend they are all black. 🙂
In Central Texas, we don’t have much in the line of fall colors. But one of my shrubs is really the showiest of all for changing colors. The first picture was taken of the pyracantha on Oct 1. As you can see the berries are just beginning to turn. I love them because for fall and pumpkin time, they change from green to…
…orange in the second picture. That was taken on Oct 4, the berries on top are even a brighter orange than the ones down below. We’re desperate down here for fall colors. So this is it! And then in winter for Christmas, the berries turn red. Now how can you not love a tree that changes color to decorate itself for the holidays and you don’t have to do a thing???
And isn’t he cute? He’s taking his black standard poodle for a walk with a Count Dracula Bear.
If you have a chance and love something a little paranormal–the heroine in Winning the Highlander’s Heart has future visions which could brand her as a witch in Medieval times.

Determined to avoid King Henry I’s randy advances, Lady Anice of Brecken attempts escape, wishing to find a Highlander to escort her home to her castle in Glen Affric where she will rule until she can find a laird worthy of her hand. Laird Malcolm MacNeill desires an English bride to improve his standing with those in power. But rescuing the Scottish lass from an escape attempt casts him into deadly political intrigue when the king sends Malcolm and his brothers to escort the lady home and investigate the disappearance of some of her staff. Now he must protect the king’s ward without losing his heart to the willful lass, or he could very well earn His Majesty’s wrath…and lose far more.
The Accidental Highland Hero followed and this is James MacNeill’s story, eldest of the brothers.

The Accidental Highland Hero–Book 2
Lady Eilis Dunbarton’s life undergoes a drastic change with the death of her cousin, Agnes. Now she’s faced with the disagreeable prospect of marrying the man who was to be her cousin’s husband. Not by a change of contract, though. Instead, by deceit—pretending to be her cousin. But if her husband-to-be discovers she’s not really Agnes, her life is forfeit. So what choice does Eilis have but to flee?
When Laird James MacNeill’s clan rescues a half-drowned lass from the sea, there is speculation she is of the enemy clan, especially since she doesn’t remember her own name. James is immediately enticed with the lady, but his focus must remain on finding the proper bride. For if he does not wed soon, he must give up his holdings to one of his younger brothers.
Focus slips away with each day Eilis is close, and James finds himself contemplating the thought of taking her to wife without knowing her true identity.
But how dangerous would the end result be?
And what will happen if Eilis’s husband-to-be comes looking for her only to find her in the arms of another man?

Alana has been sent on a mission–take care of a shepherdess, who is ill, living on the border of the MacNeill lands. But the woman explains a man she loves has a sick niece and he’s just across the border. What Alana finds instead is one rakish Highlander, enemy of her kin, who takes custody of her to protect her from any other unscrupulous knave. Now she must face his brother and what he decides concerning her disposition, all the while dealing with her ghostly brother, and now Dougald’s dead sister–who instantly clashes with her own deceased brother!
