Good Friday Morning everyone!!! hope your friday and weekend are off to a great start...These are projects I did a while back for Tamera of Country at Heart..and I didn't want to spoil her surprise ..but she has them now so I can show you..The 2 on the left she had seen but the one on the right she had not..
and she didn't know about this one either..(she told me what she wanted, size color etc)..but didn't know how it was going to look..her home is done in americana and has black accents..:)

Well I did some tweaking the other day..that little wooden box that I traded for a year ago from Lynn of painting thyme needfuls
it was in the upstairs bathroom..and I put it on the kitchen its on the woodstove for the rest of the has all of the seasons of kittys on the box..;) I put my candles in it..a cute little vignette with the raggedys...

  1. oh no, fall decorating already? hehe.. I love your wheelbarrow. Even though I love fall, I am still holding onto summer. Your kitties are so cute. They can be so silly sometimes. One of other cats used to like to climb in the fridge and hide behind something, can you believe he never got shut in there.. What a fun idea for a giveaway.. Bingo.. luv it..did you make the ornies? great job on your etsy sales.. Have a great weekend!

  2. Oh what fun! Emailed Ya! Warm Blessings!~Amy

  3. Count me in! I will email my words.
    Love the bracelet. What's the use in waiting to decorate for Fall? We have alot to do in the Fall and you get a head start :] I just want to give those kitties a squeeze. Have fun tonight!

  4. I wanna play...I wanna play!!! Love those organic pumpkins and the bracelet!!!! Love your silly kitties! I should be a grandma soon, so excited!!!!

  5. So much fun to play, have fun tonight

  6. Hi Gina:-) Hey, I like the Americana penny rugs. Nice surprises for sure. Tweaking is an obsession with me. Gotta do it anyway, til we get it just right:-) I like your new bracelet, nice sentiment to it. It's cute how our fur babies have their little hideaways. When they do that, they're lookin' to catch some serious zzzz's. Continued success with your sale.
    p.s. you're plateau could be that you're firming up those muscles. Hang in there and keep at it:-)

  7. though i don't like wishing any of my precious days away, i do love autumn so much and will love every day it is here.
    i love it even more than christmas......
    emailing my words.
    Big Hugs,

  8. I always love to see pics of your kitties. :) The penny rugs look great! I will be emailing you to play bingo!

    Blessings, Jessica

  9. Gina,
    Your penny-rugs turned out wonderful!! The design looks great on the white pumpkin. Love your bracelet!! Will be emailing my words here shortly. Have fun tonight.

  10. What a fun idea - I will e-mail my words. Keep up with the diet - it stinks to work hard and not lose, but it seems we all hit those times. It does seem that you have to change things up sometimes to get your body going again.

  11. YAY! Fall is here! I put out one thing so far too... but in 2 days it's ON! My house is going to be filled with pumpkins! LOL!

    THe penny rugs are the best! I love your work. Love that bracelet! THe serinty prayer is so beautiful!

    LOL at the kitties! They alwways find the best snuggy spots!
