I can't believe it's Friday already. The weeks are flying by and it won't be long before Halloween is here and Fall will be gone. And then Christmas is just around the corner. It has finally cooled off this evening and there is a nip in the air! Yesterday it was near 90 degrees here....didn't seem too much like Autumn.

These are a few of the things that I have been working on this week. There was a few more, but I forgot to take pictures. :(

I don't even know what to call this...
Special Request Annie and Wood Pumpkins...
Large Wood Pumpkin.....
Burgandy over Black Whale Tail Shelf.....
Smaller version spoon rack....Fall SignMini wool pillow......
Small Painted Muslin Pumpkin... and one of my new favorites! Mini dough board....

There is still lots of time to enter my monthly contest. Just leave a comment or email me!

And lastly, I would like to send my sincere THANKS to Daisy! I love my new blog and I think it looks GREAT!!! I am still so excited about it!

I still have lots to do for today, so I'm gonna run for now. Be back soon with some Fall pics around my house.

Happy Friday, Y'all!

Today was rainy, droopy day in K-ville! Trying not to complain, cause we really need the rain, but....I wasn't in the mood to do much of anything. I misplaced a piece of fabric and while I was looking for it, I ran across this piece of really nice quality Halloween fabric. I have had it for a long time and know that I will probably not ever use it. So...I thought I would see if anyone in Blogland could use it. It's around 2 yards and I want $3.00 plus shipping for it. I can stick it in an envelope and it won't cost hardly anything to ship it. If you're interested, send me an email:
first come~first served

I'll be back soon.

A sPeCiAL GiFT.....

Man, I have been having a heck of a time with trying to make a post. This is my 4th or 5th attempt. I have lots of pics to share, but can't seem to get them to load. I will have to play around with it....
A week or so ago, my Mom and Dad came over for a visit and brought me this WONDERFUL Cookie Jar. (Aunt Jemima, I believe) It was my Ma Patton's. I can hardly believe that Dad was willing to part with it. It is in excellent condition and it has McCoy on the bottom, so I'm assuming it was made by them.
I remember up until my grandmother passed away, it was right there on her kitchen counter filled with cookies. For some reason, I want to remember OREOS in there???
Can you imagine the stories this lady could tell? The children growing up, the grandchildren and even great-grandchildren had cookies out of it...................
I'm just so pleased that Daddy gave it to me and even helped me find a spot for it on top of my cabinets. Actually next to a birdhouse that my Pa Patton made years and years ago. He passed away in 1978, and it had been in my Mom and Dads back yard for years.
I was down there one day and they said I could have it. They had bought bigger ones. It found a home on top of my cabinets along with other keepsakes.
Well, I finally got this to work, so I'm gonna leave it at that. Be back soon....

and the WinnER is..........

I am so sorry that I have been away for so long.....I have been so busy that blogging is way down on my to-do list. I absolutely have to get caught up on a few things this week. But, I had to take a few minutes and make this post.

This is the FALL GATHERING for the August Giveaway and it goes to:

Terresa M. of Lynchburg, VA! Congratulations!

She gets a black cutting board, 3 candy corn, a homespun pumpkin with patch, 2 grungy Fall tapers, mini sign, mini crow, and the square of Fall plaid homespun! Hope she enjoys!

I'll be back soon with more vacation pics and pictures of what I've been working on!

Until then....
