It's been quite awhile since I have blogged. I actually haven't even thought about it for months, but I still hop on here to check out other blogs almost every day. It is such a beautiful chilly day here. I am so glad! I have really been looking forward to cooler weather. I just went for a nice walk/jog this morning at a park near here and the wind was actually a little too chilly, but it's better than hot, miserable, and sweaty any day!
I pulled out some of my Fall things the other day. I also bought some cute little gourds to use in my room. I am loving all the white and soft green pumpkins and gourds this year! I would love to buy tons of them! I don't have a whole lot of room to decorate, but I did add a couple of Fall touches to my bedroom. I really like these two little pumpkins on my pie safe~
Here is my farm table desk where I added the gourds and some bittersweet~
I ended up writing "Oh Great Pumpkin, Where are you?" on my chalkboard above the table. That was my sister Kim's suggestion:) (sorry, no pic). You can see my little 1803 Pilgrim Harvest candle below. It smells sooooo good!
As I went through my Fall boxes I found some things that I decided to sell. I am selling these things as a group for $50. Shipping will depend on how it is shipped and where it is going. If you are interested just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is what is included in this group~
6 handmade pumpkins, one primitive Jack O Lantern from Arnetts Country Store, one penny table runner(like new), one Bittersweet pillow, a prim pumpkin towel, a Harvest Blessings Redware plate framed picture, a framed Autumn Pumpkin stitchery, and a black and mustard willow tree valance. Some very nice items! (I can only accept Paypal.) If you live in this area and are interested then I would be willing to meet somewhere. Update~ These items are SOLD. Thank you!:)
This past Saturday my sister Kim and our good friend Jamie went on a GDO (Girls Day Out) to St. Charles, MO. That is such a beautiful and charming town right on the river. Here is a pic of Jamie and me as we were getting ready to start down the cobblestone streets to look in all the quaint shops~
What an awesome old cabin this was! Jamie liked the porch, so here she is posing with her bag of goodies. (Christmas goodies BTW, she got some cute things! )
Beeeautiful pumpkins on the porch stairs~
So many very neat, gorgeous buildings and homes on this historic street~
Our very favorite store of all, Cobblestone's. This place has waaay too many wonderful things. Lot's of Colonial items. I'll be honest, I was not tempted to buy anything since I am no longer decorating with Colonial or Primitive items, but I do love looking at them:) This is an awesome store~
We had such a fun day that included some yummy ghetto coffee from QT(ha ha), a delicious lunch, fun browsing in shops, and beautiful weather! I look forward to another trip there hopefully in November. Oh and I did not buy anything at all, but there was one item that I regret not buying. I may even go back and see if it's there sometime next week. It was the most adorable gray hat with a gray flower pinned on it. Sooo cute! I want it! Maybe it will still be there. Okay, that's all for this post. I'm off to drink my cup of Earl Grey Tea. Have a wonderful Monday!
