Close up of some of my fall/halloween items. Sorry~pic is a little blurry, but you get the idea.
Some of the table quilts and runners I made.
This little wreath found a home in my kitchen. I have a small spot for hanging things between my window. I have something that goes on the nail for each season/holiday. This little witch wreath is the perfect size and works perfectly~ and I didn't have anything yet to go here for Halloween. Love it!! Thank you again Momma B. Don't mind the "haunted house" in the background. It's right next door & has been vacant for over a year. The bank is just letting it rot away. What a waste!!
Frankie and the Kitty pillow/pinkeep made a home on my Halloween tree. Kitty may find another home next year (maybe tucked in with some of my baskets) but for now I am enjoying him on my Halloween tree. This tree is in my dining room for all to enjoy. A big thanks to Joan for Frankie & Teresa for Kitty. I love them both!!
Close up of Frankie perched on the tree top.
Kitty is about halfway down right in the middle of his favorite snack~candy corn.
Piggy is on my pantry door in my kitchen. She comes from Judy over at the Old Farmhouse Gathering. Just like I thought, my MIL saw her and wanted to take her home. I said maybe in a few weeks. I want to enjoy her for a while first (maybe she'll forget about "Miss Piggy").
I've still got more goodies~so check back to see where the others have ended up.

Another pic of the two of them~this time inside. It was freezing out and I had to snap some pics really fast. Can you tell Cody was telling me I had enough pics of them. He doesn't look exactly thrilled. He had two moms making sure they had lots of pics.
Another pic of Cody in front of his Eagle scout project. Again he looks so thrilled. He did a landscaping project for our local VFW hall. They have a tank in front of the building. He painted all their doors and all the columns on their building. Put concrete edging in front of the building with decorative stone and lilacs. In front of the tank, he used patio pavers to make a triangular shape. Then he filled in with the decorative stone. He had the boulder cut to fit the stone plaque and had it mounted. He repainted the plaque and added the war markers. The war markers represent each war and each marker holds a flag. This was a long project. He had to raise the money to pay for it too. I am so proud of him. Now he just needs to finish up his paperwork and complete a few other things and hopefully he will become an Eagle Scout.
The little guy on the right is my baby, Stephen. Well, he's not a baby, but he's my baby. He's 14 and a freshman this year. His goal is to become and Eagle Scout also.

It's been one crazy week-end. So glad I finally have a day off (kind of). As promised, I finally am able to post the pictures of all my wonderful goodies from the generous artists over at http://oldfarmhousegathering.blogspot.com . I was the lucky winner of their fall giveaway. Yippee!! It was a crazy week-end at our house. I had to work all day on Friday, them came home long enough to make supper, then had to go to set up for a craft show on Saturday. Saturday was taken up with the show-had to go early to tweek my booth. The show ended at 4:30 and I was done packing up by 5:30. Got home just in time to take pics of my son & his girlfriend before they headed out for the homecoming dance. Glad I made it. They were so cute. Will post some pics of them tomorrow. Sunday was work all day. So, on to the day off. Need to make 3 batches of chocolate chip cookies, a strawberry cheesecake, cut up sausage for cheese trays, organize a photo album, and pick up plates, forks, cups, etc.. for my son's dedication ceremony that is tonight at 6:30. He has completed his Eagle Scout project and is having the dedication tonight. If I have time, I would like to try to inventory my remaining craft items so that I know what I need to work on for my next show. I don't know how those moms that work full time can do it all. I work part time and have a hard time keeping up (although I've had full time hours for the past month). Well, enough about all that-on the the goodies. I came home Thursday to find this on my porch.
My first thought was-Don't get so excited, Tim probably ordered something and it's his package. But I did a happy dance when I saw it was addressed to me. Good thing my neighbors weren't around. They probably would think I was nuts the way I was dancing around.
The candle is from Kimberly of Sugar Creek Hollow. A girl can never have too many candles. This is Pumpkin Crunch Cake scented and smells sooo good.
I love crows, so I would like to thank Doris for this wonderfully prim crow on a pumkin make-do. Don't you just love the crunched up sign. It says Primitive Blessings. I think I need a new camera. This picture is a little blurry too. Maybe it's just the camera woman lol.
This is a pic of all my goodies after they came out of the basket. What a wonderful and generous group of girls!! I would like to thank them all again. They are all going to be great additions to my home. I will make sure to post pics of where these wonderful items found a place in my home soon.
Off to make some cookies and organize a photo album.

I got this guy from a craft show a long time ago and still love him. He greets my guests every year in the fall.
Next, I have a simple wagon gathering. I think I would like to put a small sign on the old chicken feeder, but haven't found one I liked yet. I'll have to spend more time checking out the blogs as there are many talented people out there and I've seen some wonderful signs. I just have to decide what I want to do.
