I'm Back...Finally & a Big Thank You to Kerri!!

Well good afternoon friends. I've finally made it back to the blogging world after major computer issues. My laptop had to go back to Dell for some doctoring & it seems like I have been gone forever. I've been using my son's computer to do quick checks on all the blogs I follow, but haven't taken the time to comment. I was usually being rushed to get off, so I did some quick reading & that's about it. I've missed a lot though.

It's been crazy here as usual. I missed out on showing you all my Halloween decorating, so I'll show you just a few things today & the rest will have to wait until next year.

I participated in a Harvest swap over at the Pickled Pepper Patch & I got a wonderful partner. I was so excited when Char said Kerri at The Calico Rabbit would be my swap partner. I love her blog & she creates the most wonderful goodies. My computer went into major malfunction before I could post pics of the wonderful goodies she sent me, so now that I'm back, I would LOVE to share what she sent me. The top pic is what I saw when I opened up my huge package. Notice the card~beautiful (even though I'm showing it to you with the pumpkin upside down). Another view of the card is below along with some wonderful smelling potpourri.

A wonderful fall swag...

Heavenly smelling putka pods~mini pumpkins.

A handmade (and her own design) acorn & leaf wool pocket.

An awesome Harvest sign...

5 little pillow ornies/tucks. I love these & was secretly hoping for some of these. To make your own, Kerri has a wonderful tutorial on her blog for making these~just click on her blog name at the top of this post.

A wonderful & very large pantry cake she made. It has a fall leaf on the top & I love it!!

And last, but not least, she sent my this yummy smelling candle.

Now here are the goodies in my home.

Thank you so much Kerri!! You were a wonderful swap partner & spoiled me rotten!!

I also wanted to show you this spooky Halloween display near our home. These guys went all out!!

So glad to be back, but I must say good-bye for now. I'm off to work. Enjoy the day!!
