Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Today, it is difficult to think of fall when we are having very hot temps - almost 90. This is unusual for us and I was enjoying the cooler weather. However, the temperature is to drop tonight to 66 and only a high of 80 tomorrow. The weather just seems to be crazy everywhere. One day it is hot, then it drops. Up and down it goes. Is your weather doing that?

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Happy Monday. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and now for another new week. Can you believe that there are only 10 days left in October? Yikes, time is flying by. Do you feel that way, or is it just me? Leaves are changing color and beginning to fall - even here in central Florida. It is a lovely time of year. Are you enjoying fall?

Well, it is Thursday again and I hope that you are enjoying this October. We are over half way through this month and I wish it would just slow down a bit. I am finally ready for Halloween. All except for the candy. I still need to get that but the house is done. 

Since we were not here last year, I am not sure how many kids we will get. I hate to buy too much candy because then I eat it. Do you get lots of kids for Halloween or do you do something else?

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

I hope your week is off to a great start. Mine is good. I am starting to plant my garden. That probably sounds silly to those of you up north but I am actually a little behind with some of my planting. 

I am also helping my daughter paint her bedroom and spare room. She wants to make changes to everything. she bought new drapes, bed-cover, sheets and pillows.  I am also making new drapes for her living room. It is a busy week.

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Happy Monday. I hope you had an awesome weekend. Ours was so beautiful. The temperature was perfect and the evenings were cool. Well cool for central Florida. I decorated for fall and Halloween. I drive my husband crazy because I am always looking for plugs to plug in something. I have not gotten this new house set up the way I had the old house. He was so kind to put in an electrical box on our pole lamp so I could plug in some lights. At least I will be ready for Christmas.

Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

When we got back from our trip up north, I tried to get the house ready for fall and Halloween. I thought of many ways to decorate the mantel but I wanted it to last past Halloween. So I decided not to add any Halloween specific decor.

We have had the most beautiful weekend here in central Florida. With our new patio done, I moved our furniture outside and we have been enjoying spending time outside. 

We finished the new raised garden beds and filled them with dirt. I don't have any vegetables yet, but hopefully this week. 

I also decorated for fall and Halloween. It has been so different decorating this house. I don't have all of the pace I had in the other one. I have lots of lights left over because I decorated above the garage and at this house we have a sun setter so no lights there. I guess I will add them to my garage sale items. 

How was your weekend? Did you do anything special or just enjoy your time.

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. Have a great week ahead.

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been great.  We drove back home on Wednesday. Another long trip home. It wouldn't be so bad but some much construction made it less than desirable. We had a lovely time and I enjoyed the cooler weather. 

I bought a few pumpkins and some Halloween decorations so I will be decorating for Halloween today. Although I am still tired from the trip, I can finish some tomorrow. Have you decorated for Halloween?

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

I am still up north and enjoying visiting with family and friends. Monday was quite rainy. In fact, it rained all day. That I can do with out but today was sunny and nice. 

The dogs have been so good but I think they are bored. They are so use to being outside and here the yard is not fenced and it is close to the road, so they have limited time out doors. Several mornings they woke me up at 3:30 to go outside. Fortunately, they go right back to sleep. I think they will be happy to be home again.

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I was able to spend it with my Mom and my sister here in PA. For the most part, the weather was so wonderful. We had a little rain today and more coming tomorrow but then it clears up. 

Have a great week and don't forget to add your posts and then maybe show some love to some other bloggers.

A Quick Halloween Vignette

Need a Quick Halloween Vignette?

Halloween is rapidly approaching and I am still decorating. I wanted a quick and easy vignette for my kitchen table. So I checked my stash, painted a little, added a little and this is what I came up with.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday!  I am still up north. Our trip took a little longer than we had hope - 15 1'2 hours. the dogs did fine but we were very tired. We are staying with my in-laws and enjoying the cooler weather. Today was a high of 75, now that is fall weather for me. 

I even bought some pumpkins to take home. As we were driving here, we saw fields of pumpkins that they had picked and lined up ready to be picked up. We saw lots of trucks loaded with boxes of pumpkins. I took this one picture but we were moving so fast that you can't see the pumpkins too well.

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. Have a great week ahead.

Thursday Favorite Things Linky Party

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!


Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been great.  We are driving to Pittsburgh, PA today. I used to drive this all the time but lately we have not driven and I am not sure how much I like driving with three dogs. So far they are being very good but 13 1/2 hours is long and that doesn't include stops. 
I want to see my Mom who is 94 and still going strong and my little sister. They are supposed to have cool weather so I am looking forward to that.

Fall Candle Holder from a Lamp Base

Fall Candle Holder  from a Lamp Base

A few months back, I pulled a wicker lamp out of the neighbors junk pile. The cord had been cut off but the rest of the parts where there. I keep lamp parts so I took it apart. The lamp shade was "toast" and I really didn't want it. 

The base of the lamp was wicker and in good shape, but I didn't like the color (sort of dirty blond).  Sorry, I don't have a picture of the original lamp base. I didn't think I would be using the base. I put it aside for awhile.

Then one day I found the wicker base and had an idea.  I found some brown spray paint. I got so excited that I forgot to take a before picture. While the paint was drying, I headed to A. C. Moore for a couple of items.

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Happy fall ya'll!! It is the first of October!

Fall is officially here with all the pumpkins, falling leaves, cooler temps, hot cocoa by the fire and picking apples. Another thing we don't do here in Central Florida is to go apple picking since there are no groves in the area. Do you like to go apple picking?
