Last day for FREE upgrade to 2day shipping on cloaks and capes

I had to change my sale just a bit because the 2day shipping sometimes turns into 3 days. Probably because of the rural area I live in. :) So to make sure your cloak makes it to you for Halloween, today will be the last day to purchase. I am upgrading every cloak purchase to 2 day shipping. I still have several fleece, faux suede, crushed panne velvet, and a few other cloaks and capes at http://www.mwestdesigns.etsy.com

The Winter Harvest

Onto my next project today. I am working on fixing up my greenhouse. I want to try to grow cold hardy vegetable this winter. It might be too late to plant for the winter, but I determined to try. The secret is to have the green house and then over the plants create a cold frame. That way there is two layers of protection. The book I'm reading is called The Winter Harvest and it has all sorts of amazing information. It talks about building green houses and even how to make them movable. Mine is not going to move, but the new windows on the South add so much light. Hopefully I will be eating lettuce come January!

I'm looking at my calendar this morning and I see that Halloween is just two weeks away. I have not decided what I will be yet. I know that I will wear a cloak :) but the rest of the outfit is a mystery. I stated thinking about childhood costumes. I remember those plastic masks. I'm not sure they make them any more, but I'm sure they are now considered a hazard as I could never see very well out of them. I think I was Wonder Woman that year. I remember the year I was the Wicked Witch of the West. I put this green goop all over my face that was quite disgusting. Of course I had a hat and a cute little broom with a black flowy dress. I think I still have the broom somewhere. Well I guess that is enough time wandering haphazardly down memory lane. Hi Ho, Hi Ho it's off to work I go........wait that was the Seven Dwarfs.... did they wear capes...Hmmmmmmmm......
