T.G.I.F... what a beautiful fall like morning we are experiencing..it was a bit foggy this morning..there is a crispness in the air..I have all the windows downstairs open..and it has a nip to it this morning..love it..I am sure it will burn off..according to accuweather (its never been accurate yet) says 64 sunny to partly cloudy...just right in my book..;) so this was taken this morning to show you how the morning looked at 8:30am.;)
Well I got a wonderful surprise package in the mail the other day from my good dear friend Cindy of Cynthia Lee's Designs..I guessed where she was putting a vintage tablecloth and she sent me this cute halloween wall hanging that she picked up at one of her favorite stores..so this will hang on the front door for fall/halloween..(is anyone out there chomping at the bit to decorate)..I am but only with pumpkins and mums outside..they already have glorious mums at albertsons here for 5.00..and they are nicely sized..I will be picking up some to put in a wheelbarrow..I have been reading my "Primitive Place" magazine..and getting some wonderful decorating ideas for fall..so can't wait till the end of September to start really decorating.;)
Cindy also sent this wonderful book by Judy Condon..oh this is next on my list when I am done with my primitive place magazine..I love to read these in bed at night..:) its the only time I have to sit and read..I just don't take time to do it..
This was Lucy goocey last night at midnight on my lap..had to snap the shot..she is currently asleep on my lap as we speak..she is my new blogging buddy..Sunny has given up that throne..as she doesn't like being around miss bossy butt..oh she rules this household that is for sure..:)

I still have these to cut out..I am also cutting some out for myself to make pillows, etc with..my good friend Carolee..(the house I go to to fine my brooms and wooden sunflowers from) called me the other day and wants some templates of my diecuts..she and her hubby do a lot of traveling looking for items to sell and she does a lot of hand sewing while they are traveling..I told her I wanted her to look for some firkins, and wool would be great too..she usually finds these things too.:)

We went out on a walk the other night and I found 12.00 in cash just laying on the ground..yippeee..I'm rich..wish it would have been a million..now that would have been nice..I have been working out on the treadmill everyday this week..and only one walk through the neighborhood..so this was nice..hubbys knee has been really hurting him..fearing surgery..and his work doesn't help it either..well that is it for me today..I hope you all have a great weekend..oh and I hit the 400 mark for followers..funny only about 25 seem to respond..have lots of lurkers that never leave remarks..and a blogger that has come back after being gone since February..yes Jessica I am talking about you..she has her regular blog and her crafty blog..so go on over and say hello and become a follower..she loves anything fall..my kind of gal..
