Halloween Cookie Cutter Swap

Sandy and I had a Halloween/Fall Cookie Cutter Swap. I had 2 partners. The first one is Beth from Dime Store Chic. Beth has a great Etsy shop too! The photo above is her as a little girl! Too CUTE!!!

 This is Beth's creation that is now mine! Who doesn't love a little birdie with a Halloween hat!

 Then she sent all these goodies! WOW!! THANK YOU, Beth!!! Your generosity is very appreciated!

My 2nd partner is Terri from Our Good Life. We did a fall theme for the cookie cutters! What fun, right!

YUM, lots of sweet treats and fun fall goodies! THANK YOU, Terri! How fun to have 2 swap partners!

NOW, for the other gals that joined, your package should be in the mail on Wednesday and then POST right away to THANK YOUR Partner!!! Plus, we all love to see how creative everyone is! Thank You to all the gals that have already posted! :)

The Honeymooners will be home on Monday....

Hubby and I did go out to a couple of estate sales :) and I put up some fall on my mantle...the days fly by! You have heard that our temps have been in the 80's the last couple of days! LOVE IT!!! The leaves are so pretty!

A Little Wedding Peek

 Here is a peek at daughter's bridal bouquet...very pretty and the table center pieces before the table were set with the table wear...

The CAKE!!!  The wedding went well, just a couple "glitches"... that no one really knew about...the weather was great and it did rain while we were eating dinner, inside.  After the rain, a beautiful Double rainbow appeared and the photographer took a photo of them and the rainbow. I can't wait to see it.

I have grandgirl until Friday, so I'm being a "mom" again...I'll post later, after the weekend.  Thank you for all your prayers for daughter and the wedding!!!

These photos are from my little camera.

Groom's Dinner & Request, please

I bought them t-shirts to wear on their honeymoon....the groom's dinner was okay. Taco bar was okay. They went over who is walking who down the aisle, what time to be at the golf club, etc...I think we are ready!!! 

Daughter wasn't feeling so good on Sunday. Tightness in her chest, temp of 102 and coughing...and hubby to be started coughing too...So, If you have any time to pray for everyone to be HEALTHY for the wedding, I would deeply appreciate it. Also, there is a 60% chance of rain on Saturday..morning, "they" say...again, if you have the time, please pray for perfect weather...THANK YOU from the Top & Bottom of my HEART!

I'll take as many photo's as I can at the wedding. I'll post again early next week with all the wedding details!

 "Thank You" to all of you who left the nicest comments on Susan's blog and mine about the Saturday Spotlight...XO!!

Whimsy Jar Swap & Crafting

 I recently joined a Whismy Jar Swap that Jessica had. My partner was Lilla at Just Lilla and she sent me the jar above loaded with all you see in the photo below :) She lives in Hawaii :) The circle lace piece is something her 90 year old Mom made. It goes on top of your cup to keep the bugs out! She also send me Hankies, buttons lace & more! THANK YOU, Lilla for the jar filled with creating fun!

 This is the jar I sent to Lilla with all that you see below. :)

Yesterday I was in the mood to make some cards and tags! I seem to work with my table loaded with stuff...hmm!!! Yesterday it was cloudy with light rain.  It was a good day to stay inside :)

ONLY 8 Days until the WEDDING!!! I think we are all ready! Saturday is the Groom's dinner :)

I'll have another post this week, on Saturday. I'm going to be "Spotlighted" on someones blog:) Stay tuned and come back on Saturday!

Make up day at Macy's

 Okay, this isn't really the "BEFORE", but I didn't want to scare you right of the bat with the real before.

 Here is the REAL BEFORE, not the best angle! LOL!!!  Looking a little "puffy" LOL!!!

The "AFTER" for both of us...dear daughter didn't want me to show you her, before, so here are her 2 afters!! I love the lip color and did buy that! We went to Macy's and had our makeovers done at the Bobbi Brown cosmetics.  Daughter does NOT like to wear lip color, but I think this is the perfect color for her. They used a "gel" eyeliner which I also bought! I do enjoy make up!! Just "enhancing" what God gave me.

Here is the Bride to Be! Of course I got a little teary...They consultants were very nice and it was "free"... we did buy a few products and gave them a tip.  It was fun!

Hubby cleaned the area rugs today! Fresh and clean!!!  Crossed off more on my "to do" list. Next Saturday is the Groom's dinner. It's a Taco Bar at a local restaurant. About 20 will gather.  I start a Bible study on Tuesday. It's a Beth Moore study. I think her studies are great. Thursday is daughter's birthday.

I hope the weather for daughter's wedding is just like today! It was Perfect! Sunshine, high 60's, a light breeze..Perfect!

I hope your weekend is going Perfect!
