Moonshine & The Winner Is…..

Well, there hasn’t been a lot of sunshine these days, but boy howdy, the moon sure gave us a dose of bright light last night! Mr. Sweet Cottage Dreams snapped these at the stroke of midnight last night. I just had to share with y’all the beauty up in the sky. Hey, is that a witches broom I see flying by? Naw, just me sweeping the porch. Besides, Halloween is many moons away.IMG_2849

I love your moon shots. When I was a little girl I used to try to follow the moon beams coming through the windows of our house. I would drag my favorite blankie behind me and try to sleep in the moonbeam. I love to see the full moon. So beautiful! Thank you for posting your pics!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Duh! I just signed up for the give away! Hee-hee!

Marcy said...

Hey there ... :) Great moon pics, by the way ... I was wondering what trials with Dughall, if any, you had when you brought Fiona home. I so badly want another Scotty, but my husband is afraid Maizie won't like it ... she's nearly 3 and this is her territory. She plays well w/ other dogs, as long as they don't get her toys or get near her food/water bowl.

What beautiful pictures of the moon your hubby took! You know Becky I was out there last night about the same time letting Samie out to go potty and the moon here had a huge halo around it! I actually thought of taking a picture of it to! It was amazing! Isn't the moon heavenly, yes heavenly!

Congrates to the winner of your giveaway!

Hugs,
Maryjane
