So are you wondering what this is a picture of...Well I will tell you I had an unwanted visitor in my shower with me on thursday...turn around to get my shower gel and there is the huge freakin spider at the back of the tub trying not to get wet...and I am just staring at him so I can keep an eye on him and he starts to move...well I grabbed the toilet bowl cleaner caddy and popped him and then covered him up till I was done digging my nice hot shower...that sucker must have been the size of a quarter...makes my skin crawl just thinking about..just gave myself the chills...told my husband that I was taking a shower with someone else..;)
well it has been a busy couple of days..and I wanted to post each day..but just got wrapped up in life and my crafts saying one more..one more..and here is it Saturday night...we finally picked our taters yesterday and they barely fit in that apple basket..I think this was our best harvest yet..and there is probably more still hiding from us..I also picked another zucchini on the left....gotta shred them up for breads..will last me the whole year..I also picked huge sweet tomatoes..the raccoon is leaving them alone thanks to the shocker...so I have been enjoying tomato and mayonaise sandwichs and today was bacon with tomato...oh my gosh those are tasty..Tonight I am making clam chowder with our potatoes..great and easy recipe too..
here are the biggest of the taters..the one in the upper left is bigger then my hand...doesn't a baked potato and chili and sour cream with cheese on top sound good?
I baked this yummy and very easy dessert for thursdays church function..Recipe to follow..
See the mums in the back? I won those at church the other night..they look so good there...can mums stay inside? or do I need to put them out...If any one knows..please let me know..:)
forgot to show some of my other fall items..my longaberger pumpkin basket...it will hold all the loot for the kids this halloween..
and my pumpkin up on the entertainment center..she looks like she is telling scary stories..:)
today in the midst of embroidering and coffee staining some doillies..I had a grand idea to change out my curtain on this old window that is in our bedroom..this is the before photo above
and this is the after photo..recognize the curtains..they came from the kitchen...iron em up and hung them...
I bought some cute little stamps (waiting on one more set) should be her monday..but I just couldn't wait to stamp some out on some stained tags..I love them...
still need to finish up this pillow...
made these little embroidery stocking ornaments..oh these were fun to do...
couple of little kittys that are embroidered..with little bells sewn onto the fronts..great little ornies to tuck here and there or put with a doll..
and last but not least..this is what I have been working on for 2 days...just finished them up tonight...I love these guys..you can't see it really well..but I put a little stick for the stem on all of them..little ornies to tuck here and there or put in a bowl with potpourri..if any one is interested in any of these items please let me know...well I am off to fix dinner... have a wonderful rest of your weekend..we got rain today..and we needed it..and it was nice to be inside sewing to my hearts content...:)
