Lucky Me!

Lucky me, I have a few days off this week that I can enjoy AT HOME! My Yankee Candles are lit, the windows open for great fresh air and the housework is to do a little moving about of the things I love! I am off on a quick trip to Alabama this weekend, just a day drive to a shop to pick up a cabinet that Rebecka put on lay a way! Her hubby said we put things on lay a way just so we have an excuse to go back. He is pretty smart! I hope to find a few things on our little excursion, but will enjoy the drive there and back just the same. Leaving you with a few photos of trip to Atlanta for the Country Living Fair a few weeks ago. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Veterans Day and Weekend

I missed getting on line and posting some photos I took recently from my trip to CLF. We stopped in Madison, Georgia and a resident recommended we visit the cemetery ( stores were not open yet!) We decided to take a stroll. My dear friend Rebecka loves to stitch what she calls death samplers; the ones that have a message about remembering the crafter by their stitched work after they are gone. She was especially interested thinking she might find some inspiration for her designing. It was beautiful and the morning was enjoyable. We walked together and we walked alone. It was interesting to see the segregated burial areas, and the area designated for unknown soldiers from the Confederate Army. I pray our nation never again has to fight among itself. For all the soldiers, those that are gone, those that served, those that are serving, a special thank you. Enjoy these photos as the weekend ends and Veteran's day is past us, allow them to touch your heart and remember those that fought for our freedom and those that still do today.

Friday Fun

The weekend has finally arrived! I spent my "off day" cleaning house; love to do that when the weather is a little cooler and I can open the windows and enjoy it! Received a Yankee Candle in the mail from my pen pal since third grade ( not telling you how long that's been going on, just say awhile) with a delicious scent. Lit that of course and enjoyed the fragrance all day. Did take a quick tour of two little shops in town ( when I went to the post office of course) and picked up some books for my new cabinet...more on that one later. Here are some shots of my kitchen from my early fall decor. I am putting out all my wonderful turkey platters tonight and a few other Thanksgiving items. Enjoy these photos and share my blog with a friend!

More great sights from the Country Living Fair in Atlanta, Georgia just a few weekends ago! Thought you might enjoy! I love wooden boxes, especially all those with drawers like the one here! Now as we head towards Thanksgiving, I am quite thankful that others have saved these items from the junkpile and continued the lives of these items with collectors like you and me! It is a treat to have a goodie in your home that could tell tales, if only it could speak.
Please ask a friend to join my blog today!

CLF Eye Candy

Wow, the eye candy at the Country Living Fair was intense, here are just three of the photos I took of vendors. Pumpkins and popcorn and pantry boxes, oh my! It was a great trip and the weather was perfect. Now that homecoming at our high school is behind us and Halloween is done, we can bring out all the turkey platters and horns of plenty. What a great time of year.

I'll share my purchases with you later today, I was lucky to find some favorite items between here and there! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
