hey there!!! well I felt well enough to go out for our weekend walks this past sunday and Monday..(hubbys days off this past month) and took my camera in hopes to find something new...and this is the only thing I took on Sunday...isn't this a unique piece of driftwood? looks like an alligator head to us..it is really neat..
yesterday passing the same house that we always do...I took photos of these in full bloom and oh my gosh the heads on the things are Dinner Plate size and I mean the big ones...mine were truly salad plate size..still neat to look at though...I cut the head off of mine and put them where the bird feeders are and they are being eaten by something..so a great way for the animals to get some food in their bellys...
I am posting a "what is this" question to you all..I will reveal the answer in tomorrows post..:)
love the colors and this type of tree...fall is here..it was a winnie the pooh kind of day yesterday...blustery...but beautiful..it rained a bit last night and is expected too the rest of the week..so I can hopefully get lots done..
Our Friend Travis' house...I love the blue..he is a young man with a new baby and he is a landscaper with his dad and they have worked hard on building this house and has a beautiful back yard..and I love the style of his house and love the blue with the white..:)
I got two packages in the mail yesterday..and apparently I took some pretty blurry photos...poo...well you get the picture..:)
my blog winnings from Thimble prim studios came and it is such a cute little pin cushion...the bottom is a soft black velvet..and I love the way she sewed on her business card to the bottom of it...very creative..will have to keep that one in mind...she is also having another giveaway ..it is on my side bar a cute little cranberry doll...so be sure to check that out..
Here is where I put my little pin cushion...This is in the stairwell now..I have also been tweeking and we are cleaning out the guest bedroom to make way for a new to us, old roll top desk that Mike is getting for free from his work..he doesn't use his computer in there...so it is going and so is the desk..man there are so many books and just plain crap in there..so he is going to take a day to go through it when the desk comes home..it will be nice to declutter and make it a guest room again..so this wrought iron longaberger stand made its way down stairs to the stairwell and is housing all my cookbooks and decorating books now along with my picnic baskets.. I also put out my little fall picks that I bought at Joanns last week and one is here..the cushion is sitting on it...amazing how much those little picks add in just the right places..might have to go buy more when I am out this week..getting my hair done on thursday..oh it is so needing to be done..hate faded hair...then to joanns to spend my 50% off coupons and then grocerys...so it will be a long day...
last but not least...I ordered these candles to use in my creations from Sharon of Hearts and homespun..Soft in the head uses them in her creations and I purchased some of her patterns and they call for these itty bitty candles..they are only 2 inches long and oh so cute..She also sent me a cute little blackened grunged wax headstone ornament..this will go on my tree with my other wax ornaments when I decorate this weekend or next...I have been busy sewing and will have lots to show you tomorrow for WWW...I will have ornies and candlemats and 2 dollies to share..hopefully more..so have a wonderful tuesday everyone..:)
