This tree is always one of my favorites! I love the fall colors and the leaves and turkeys! Such fun! And then it's nonstop busy until after the first of the year!!!! I will be hosting my family for Thanksgiving. I've done it for a decade or so. I always enjoy it. We put up the Christmas trees right after Thanksgiving! Things will be chaotic for a few days, and then it's time to sit back and enjoy! I love this time of year! I know you all are in the same boat, and I hope you will be enjoying these next few days!
Look at this cute car that was parked next to mine the other day! I've never seen car eyelashes before, but it's clever, isn't it!!
We enjoyed a wonderful concert on Sunday afternoon! Mannheim Steamroller is in the middle of their Christmas Tour and we were so lucky that they came to Jackson, MS! I saw them once before and they are just fabulous. I have all their Christmas CDs and am ready to get them out and listen!
My cat Omar has been so great and is so loving, sweet and devoted. One of his favorite things to do is to jump on my clothes when I change. He is particularly fond of my bra.....I guess it might be strange to post this--oh well, it's so funny!
You may remember that I am having some work done at our house. I've had upholstery and they are painting now. All is turning out well. I ran in the paint store the other day, and I had forgotten that they put discontinued samples out on their porch for people to take if they want them. They had several wallpaper books and some wood floor samples, which I passed by. However, I was very weak and picked up 3 Kravet fabric books. They are just gorgeous. Some are embroidered taffetas and there are a number of polished cottons, too. They are PERFECT for ornaments! Just enough fabric and tons of choices! And yes, there were only 3 fabric books and I took all of them!! oink, oink
And finally, I am a winner!!!!! Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe had a giveaway and I won three gorgeous hand-dyed pieces of Aida. Aren't these colors lovely? I am so thrilled. These just scream Autumn!!! The photo doesn't do them justice.
I have been stitching and I finished the little Prairie Schooler Halloween ornament I was stitching. I started another little Christmas mini card, and I intend to actually start a Prairie Schooler Santa! I also need to use some of this gorgeous new fabric!
Thank you for visiting and come back again soon!
Oh yes--I forgot to say that I had yet another kidney stone lithotripsy! It's become so common that I don't even think about it--sorta like rotating tires!!!! But, we're getting them all cleaned out! Oh my
