Orange Jester by Dogonwear

How absolutely STUNNING would this Halloween JESTER COLLAR look on a BIG, BLACK DOG! This one’s definitely for the dog who wants to be in GQ (Greyhound Quarterly, that is). This collar is orange fleece with cotton batting in it and a bell on each point. It measures 23” point to point with a 16” elastic neckline.

"Green Bean Casserole" aka "SWINGIN SINGLES Skein (tm) handspun RARE CHURRO WOOL yarn" from The Knotty Sheep

"Green Bean Casserole" is my entry for the Etsy for Animals November Challenge: Bountiful Harvest!Yep - every Thanksgiving Mom makes this classic ... it would not be a Holiday without this dish on the table!

Shades of greens and a wee splash of gold collide to make a delicious feast for the eyes! An approximate 12 wpi. The skein weighs 2.8 oz on my postal scale and is measured at an approx 102 yards! Due to the hand dyed nature - commercial perfection is not obtainable.

♥ 5% of The Knotty Sheep's sales are donated to animal charities! My current charity of choice: PittieLove Rescue! ♥

TheKnottySheep is also a faithful EFA thread bumper and every Tuesday adds items to the team shop.

This handmade greeting card is laser printed and handcolored on 80# cardstock. The design, drawn by me, is based the original painting, titled Thanksgiving by Norman Rockwell, for the cover of The Literary Digest. The original issue date appeared November 22, 1919. Thanks to for my source image.

The card is 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inches and the envelope is size A2, 4-3/8 x 5-3/4 inches. This card comes in a clear plastic sleeve and is blank on the inside. ":

I give 5% to local rescues (St. Louis area) and I'm a webmaster for EFA.

To Feed the Masses 20 x 16 by DragonRags

This is the first photo in the "Coldest Dishes" series. At least 3 more will follow. Though the subject matter appears mundane, this photo is positively eye-popping in a large format! Sure to punch up any casual dining room or modern kitchen (for example.)

The photos in this series were to be album art for my boyfriend's first CD. This photo and one other made it to the cover art. I hope to list the rest of the series soon.
