Also I have been doing a little fall decorating...
This last one is my tables little centerpiece...I am actually very proud of it...the little yellow tray came from a yard sale for .25...and the cinnamon twine balls were 3 for $1 and the scarecrows $1 each and the leaves $1.25 ...pumpkin $7....not too shabby if I do say so myself..... also wanted to let you know in the upcoming weeks I am going to be painting my china hutch black and distressing it.....If anyone knows and is willing to share...HOW DO YOU MAKE THOSE FAKE PANTRY PIES? I WANT TO MAKE SOME AND MY CREATIVE JUICES CAN'T QUITE FIGURE IT OUT!!!
Love thy neighbor.....

Second this weekend is our city wide garage sale!!! I am having a 5 plus family garage sale at my house!!! So my house is a wreck!!! After the garage sale this weekend and the shower next weekend maybe just maybe I can have my house and sanity back!!!
Okay....so Heather who won my giveaway.... I will be shipping out your winnings MOnday I had to re-paint another plate because my DH broke the other one...looking with his hands not his eyes.... sorry it has taken me so long...I will make this up to you!!!
I am looking for anyone who has a kitchenaid stand mixer they are getting rid of or if someone sees one of these at a sale of any sort. I am dying to have one...but money is just blah here!!! I have saved a little money and thought I would put this out there because all of you ladies seem to find the best stuff!!!! we just don't have the good sales and stores here like everyone else!!! Also wanted to let everyone know that i am going to host another give-a-way... in September. I have decided to make it a blind give-a-way..... each post I will hint around about each item that I am giving away. For each comment you leave you get a entry.....one comment per post please....IF you post this Blind Fall Give-a-way on your blog and tell your friends you get 2 more entries......and if you add me to your blog roll...another entry!!!! So there is potential for alot of entries per person if you just keep with me!!!!! :)
I didn't have such a successful turn out on my recipe & cloth swap.... so I thought I would put it out there one more time...... For all of those who joined to swap...thank you.... I just wanted to ask if anyone was interested in making it an ornie and recipe swap instead of cloth????..... Comments are very welcome...
Thanks all so much..
And if anyone is looking for any specific items....let me know and I will keep an eye out for ya!!!
