October Calendar Challenge at the Kathryn Wheel


Hi everybody. It's the beginning of the month so it's time for the Calendar Challenge over at 'The Kathryn Wheel'.  It's always fun to see the different takes people have on their calendars. I have stuck to my rhyme of the month, and therefore I have a pheasant on my page. The fields are reminiscent of Autumn, the sky is blue, as it has been here today. The little door for October 31st is hiding a secret. But I can't tell you what it is, otherwise it wouldn't be a secret any more.Suffice it to say, that some bad characters are waiting behind there till it's time for them to come out and play! You will surely get to see them when the next calendar is due!






Don't peek too close, they might just get irritated.....


And this strange picture is the full moon, snapped last night with my cell phone. I just loved the halo around it, even if the photo is very grainy!


Have a great day you all, take care, and hope that the new month will be a good one for you!

  6. Hi Valerie. It was an amazing moon wasn't it! It was bright orange as it rose here. Love your calender, your work always inspires. And as to our hose hunting, we actually are going to build a new home and the plans are already drawn up. We just need to sell this one first and then it will be full steam ahead! x Julie

  9. Your calendar is gorgeous - certain captured the feeling of fall with all it's beautiful colours. I was very disappointed I couldn't see the Harvest Moon - we had high cloud and a little rain last night. The sky with all it's celestial beauty seems to hang lower, and everything seems bigger here in Mexico. I guess it's because I'm closer to the equator. Have a lovely day, Valerie, hugs, Donna

  25. Love the calendar and I can't wait to see what is hiding behind the doors! This must be such a challenge working on something this large too! It looks magnificent with the beautiful sky, trees, pheasant and flowers. I must say I am a little worried about what might crawl out of that cage though, ha ha. That full moon is pretty spooky too!
