Fall Is Here! Mummy Cups, Pumpkin Beer, Pumpkin Spice Creamer, and Some Art

Yay! We had the first few stirrings of fall yesterday.  Don't get me wrong, it was still hot enough for heat stroke here in Central Alabma, but we felt a few breezes and the mornings were tolerable.  I have been waiting for this since May!  Looks like we may actually have a day or two in the 70s this week. Praise the Lord!

To celebrate I bought this super fun Mummy cup at the grocery store yesterday.  Isn't it adorable?  I have a mummy loving grandson that is going to flip over this.  

I bought myself a few fun fall items at the grocery store too.  Pumpkin ale and pumpkin spice creamer. 
These are my tickets to Elizabeth's T-day party where we share some drink related fun every week (everyone is welcome - you just need something about drinks in your post - can even be one of your favorite movies with a drink of any kind in it).  Happy T-day friends!

In celebration of fall, I also painted up this lovely card.  I followed THIS fabulous tutorial on YouTube. 
After an early morning peewee football game, I spent Saturday with my Sister and Aunt where we crafted, laughed, and caught up with each other. I got a head start on some ATCs I am doing for a swap at  I painted this fun gnome  - watercolor and white acrylic paint. Isn't he adorable?
Hope you have a lovely week!




  1. Good morning, loving your fall post-we are finally enjoying some 70 degree f days too here in Missouri, and cool mornings too loving that. Happy new week Kathy

  2. We're still on the road so I am way behind on commenting. We've tried a lot of different beers here in Newfoundland.

  3. Oh pumpkin beer. I haven't bought any yet, but it is time, isn't it? I can tell I am further north because our days have been in the 60's. Summer is definitely gone from NH. Your mummy cup is too fun also. But really Nancy, you can paint. What wonderful images you created on your cards. Happy T day, and enjoy your fall pumpkin. hugs-Erika

  4. Pumpkin beer sounds so interesting. I love the cup that is just too cute and your painting is very well done. Have a great day today.

  5. That cup is supercute!!!
    Here we have the heating on already, it´s cold.
    The Night Owl - super cool! As the coffee mate.
    Wow to your art. Oh, I am sad we had to let go of summer.
    Hi there, gnome - to a happy week!

  6. I love that gnome so much, and the card is a masterpiece, just fantastic. Enjoy our new cup! And of course the new drinks and treats you bought. Have a great week - hopefully not too hot - and stay safe and happy! Hugs!

  7. I think our fall just hit 89 degrees here! Actually we're supposed to have a day or two of the upper 80's so that's good.
    Love the ATC's. FUN!

  8. Hi Nancy!
    Oh, we have much cooler weather in Austria - it's below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20.1 degrees Celsius) in our house, which we find a bit cold / uncomfortable, but we want to save heating energy this year because we don't know if we will get through the winter ("thanks" to Putin's war and the lack of gas)... and outside the temperatures are usually around 13 to 14° C (ie 55-57° F) and it rains on many days . I think it's the rainiest September here in many years. But it's okay, we also had a rather dry summer (not as dry as you guys in Alabama, of course).
    The mummy cup is the burner! :-DDD I think you're already in Halloween mode ;-)
    Your autumn card and the gnome are charming!
    Hugs and happy T Day,

  9. Nancy ! I'am in LOVE with your gnome ATC!!! OMGosh thats just fabulous! And your other painting turned out lovely too.. But the GNOME!!! LOL! His little light is just perfect! I feel the same way about the heat as you!! We still hit the 90's during the day but at least not 100.. and mornings have gotten cooler.. We'll get down to the 50's most mornings this week.. Beautiful for walking.. Happy happy T day! Hugs! deb

  10. Your fall card is so beautiful and I also like the little gnome, so cute. I'm sure your grandson will love that mummy cup, how much fun is that! I'm not so sure about pumpkin beer though, I love pumpkin in pumpkin bread and occasionally a pumpkin spice latte, but that's about it. When I went to my grocery store this morning, there was pumpkin-something everywhere - a bit too much for me, but then I don't have to buy it. Happy T day, Nancy.

  11. Your grandson will love that fun cup. Beautiful Fall card and the gnome is adorable. I'm sad to see Summer leaving. Happy T Day

  12. Great mummy cup. We like the Mummy movies and would love a cup like this. Your grandson will surely get a big kick out of it. Happy T Tuesday!

  13. Oh my Nancy, I love your post! I'm sure your grandson will love that fabulous cup and I'm more than happy to join you for a pumpkin ale - my favourite 😊. Your autumnal painting is so beautifully created and wow, that gnome is cute - love them both! Happy Fall and sending you Happy T Day wishes too! Hugs Jo x

  14. Nancy, I love that mummy cup. I happen to love mummies as I am into Ancient Egypt.
    Your cards are stunning. I am going to have a look at that Youtube tutorials that you followed. I especially like the gnome, so cute!!
    Happy Tea day,

  15. What a fun and charming post, Nancy. I LOVE that mug. It is hilarious. A bit quirky and a bit jolly.

    It's pumpkin time at the grocery stores. I haven't seen the pumpkin creamer yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. I stopped at a Whole Foods for the first time last week and was met with all kinds of gourds and pumpkins before I ever got into the store!

    Your card is stunning. It is beautiful. I really like your gnome ATC, too. I'm sure the recipient will adore it.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely card and ATC, as well as your pumpkin inspired and related drinks with us, as well as your mug, for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  16. Your watercolor cards are amazing, Nancy. I have bookmarked the video to go watch later. Thanks for sharing. Happy T Day!

  17. What a lovely cup. Why is it called a mummy cup? Wow your painted card is amazing! And the gnome is cute too.
    I recognize the brand Coffeemate, but I've never seen pumpkin flavour. (we don't have that in Europe, at least of all the countries I have traveled in, I have never seen it).
    Happy T-Day,

  18. Hi Nancy, I am LOVING your cards! And that mummy cup is so cute. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

  19. Halloween just keeps getting more and more elaborate! Witches, pumpkins (carved or not), pumpkin spice (with or without the actual pumpkin), ghosts, tombstones, and now mummies on everything!

  20. Hugs dear! We deserve a breezy break

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
