About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Shall We Step Outside?

   The weather is lovely here, cool but sunny.  Why don't we step outside and see what's new?

   Ah, pumpkins, bunnies and ivy- three of my favorite things.  They are waiting to greet friends- and soon little trick or treaters.:)

   I have my wreaths made at the loveliest little boutique.  They are quite an indulgence, but I believe they are worth every penny.  It's about time for a new one...

   A lovely piece of art by Blakely Wilson (Wilson and Wilson Folk Art).  I can't wait to see her at the upcoming art shows.  Her pictures make me smile...

   Would you like to sit on the porch swing or in the rocking chair?  We could look through some magazines and dream the afternoon away.  I have a feeling there would be lots of talking and perhaps some crafting happening, too!
Oh, did you ask if I have any other reading material?  As a matter of fact, I do....

   If you look inside the table on my front porch you will see that I have a new book that I am SO anxious to read.  I stayed up until 3:30 AM this morning finishing "Twilight".  What a story!!  How could you NOT absolutely fall in love with Edward?  What is in store for me in the next book? No, don't tell me!  Thank you so much, Heather, for sending the books to me!

    Of course, while we are reading and discussing "Twilight" we may want to nibble on something.  (tee hee)

That wreath is amazing!! And I love that Wilson pic. So cute!! I think I have a very similar bunny statue. I had been looking for one for a while and found mine at Goodwill for $5!! Can you believe it??
Ok, so I need to get off the computer and carry on with packing. Wanna help?!?!

Hi - I'm new to your blog. I just put an entry on mine about a pumpkin topiary and googled it to see what other adorable creations were out there and, well, here I am.

I LOVE the two small ones you made earlier this month - the ribbon is too precious. Now I'm going to have to bookmark your site and come back to look at more of your wonderful ideas. I love bunnies and ivy too! Thanks for sharing.

Fondly,
Allyson

Edward, what can one say ........

Book one was amazing, book two was so surprising - not what I thought it would be {she likes to keep readers on their toes.}

Book three I am currently reading. {Well as soon as I am done typing this!}

Such an inviting front porch! I TOLD you those books are addicting! I just finished Eclipse...expect it in the mail soon(if you don't mind lost pages?)and I am off to get the 4th. Yummy, candy corn and a book. Is there anything better? Have a great day!

Sherry said...

Oh I'll take the swing please and just relax with you. The candy corn might be all gone though -- I can't resist!!!

I've been waiting for the corn stalks to dry out so I can tie some on our porch. We go up to the mountains to get them. Your porch is so fall. Thanks for sharing it.
