This weird bird is a little late to the party…
Oktoberfest was celebrated in Munich between September 17 and October 3 this year!
But The Lederhosen bird is always ready to celebrate!
Did you know that lederhosen or “leather breeches” were worn as traditional garments in some regions of German-speaking countries? Formerly, they were worn for hard work but today are mostly worn as leisurewear.
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!
And Happy Fall! The leaves are changing amazing colors and the days have been extra sunny and warm in the Pacific Northwest where I live.
I have been spending as much time as possible outdoors… before the days get colder.
Do you have a favorite season? I hope you share it with me! 😃

As I wait for the doorbell to ring and costume-clothed kiddos arrive with pillow cases or plastic buckets to be filled with sweet treats, I review my October square-a-day project.
This month I tried to stick to a theme. Nature was my inspiration. Simple squares. Gelli-plate printed backgrounds. What do you think of having a nature theme?
I left my 5×7 inch Gelli-plate out on my art table for the entire month of October. This led to some wonderful explorations with acrylic ink and fluid acrylics. I also enjoyed printing on old book pages.
Below are some of my favorite squares:
I believe I am now supplied with as many prints as the kids whose buckets were overflowing with Halloween candy! 😉 Sweet!!
I look forward to hearing which squares you like!
Happy November! Cheers! 🙂
