Halloween Mantle & Gifts from Blogging Friend

Here is my Halloween mantle. Nothing scary, just some good old fashion fun! I don't have a big collection.

I hope that kitty doesn't get Mr Owl. Both are vintage papers.

I rec'd a fun fall package from Debbie, my blogging friend. One of these "days' we will met! We enjoy sending each other gifts during the year. Thank you, Debbie :) I have been burning the candle which smells so very good!

The leaves are at peek in my area. So beautiful! God's amazing artwork/creation! The sun is shinning and the dogs are waiting for a walk! I hope you are able to enjoy this season!

Crafting Fun & Recent Finds

A few finds from a recent outing...

Recently, Oliva was over and we crafted for awhile. She made the fall banner above along with the autumn sign from scrabble letters.

I made a few cards and a couple of tags. 

Next post will be of my Halloween mantle.

Teacups Galore!!!

A couple of weeks ago, while doing my "duty" day at Mainstreet, a woman came in with a couple of boxes of teacups for sale....was I interested??? YES....so I bought all of them.!!!!

35 teacups and saucers. I have put a couple away for myself, a couple are already at the booth and the rest of them I need to price and bring to the antique shops.

Today I stayed home and baked banana bread and sweet potato muffins. All from scratch! YUM.  I should have been outside and enjoying this perfect fall day! I also cleaned the house and decorated the mantle with my vintage and cute Halloween things. I will post it soon.

Stay-cation Week

Hubby was home this week, staycation, and I made this delicious meal...recipe below.

Hubby had a birthday. We went to a few antique shops during the week, estate sale today and the "TO DO" list wasn't touched! Oh well! We also ate out a few times.

I started Bible Study Fellowship this week. This year we are studying the Book of John. You can go to the link and find a group in your area! It is international, non-denominational, and a very good study!

Fall is here. The temps are cooler, the leaves are beginning to change, the sun is setting earlier and I can feel fall in the air!

Fall Fun & Catching Up

I bought some baby boos at a local grocery store. They are so much fun to use for fall decorating :)

I just love this little owl and I did find another one!

October will be a pumpkin mantle...I had to "peek" into my pumpkin tote...happiness :)

Busy week with my son's birthday and then my daughter's  and hubby's is next week.

Had the garage sale last week. Oliva, fellow blogger, stopped by. It wasn't the best garage sale that we have had.

I will be starting  Bible Study Fellowship at a local church, on Thursday afternoons. It is a wonderful study, open to everyone. This year the study is JOHN. I would encourage you to find one in your area

Fall is in the air!!!

Fall mantle: Squirrels and Owls, oh my

Decided to decorate the mantle for fall and came up with this: Squirrels & Owls! LOL!  These guys have names, Nutsy, Chunk & Sassy! It is official, more than 3 is a collection!

Here it is and the banner is from a swap from Shirley a couple of years ago. She is an artist in my mind! Next month the mantle will be loaded with pumpkins and a couple vintage Halloween pieces.

I am going to have my garage sale on Thursday.  LOTS of treasures will be for sale for those of you who live in the area! 9-5!!!

The weather has been wonderful!! I love days like these. I love how God made seasons, of which Fall is my FAVORITE!

Have you started decorating for fall?
