No pie in this punkin's future, just a new home!




My poor little blog has been neglected lately and I've sure missed keeping up with all my blog friends- but I've been so busy with some projects in and around the house for the past couple of weeks I haven't had much time for my computer.
One of the more enjoyable projects I've been working on was making a few more fabric pumpkins to add with my other fall decor. It's a really cute pattern and very easy to make. I've enjoyed sharing a few of them with my blog friends every Fall and this year will be no different- I'm giving away the pumpkin in the picture above and all you have to do to be entered into the drawing is leave a comment. Oh, and in your comment- tell me what you like best about Fall... a visit to an apple orchard? Pumpkin patches and corn mazes? Cool crisp mornings and the changing of the leaves? The drawing is open to everyone, even if you've never left a comment before. I would love to hear from you, too! Just be sure to leave an email address in your comment if you don't have a Blogger or Wordpress profile.

The winner will be announced on next Tuesday's post and hopefully I'll also have some pictures of my nephew's wedding- which is this Saturday- to share with you then, too. On the other hand, I may be so caught up in the moment I forget to take a single picture. (Which is highly possible when it comes to things like that...)




And just for a laugh, I wanted to share some pictures someone sent me in an email... I'm sure some of you have already seen them but I wanted to share it with everyone because I think they're really cute.









































Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Friday Farm Fotos: Ode to Charlotte


















My all-time favorite book as a child was Charlotte's Web..... I loved the story of cunning little spider Charlotte and her friend Wilbur the pig. To this day I remember certain parts of the book even though it's been years since I've read it- like Fern pleading for her dad to spare the little runt piglet because "he couldn't help being born small!" and Wilbur getting his "buttermilk bath" for the county fair. I especially identified with Fern because at the time I was introduced to the book, she and I were the same age.
(8 years old.)

I was out with my camera one morning this week trying to get some pictures of the sunrise and happened upon some amazing webs draped with mist from the morning's fog. I stopped for a minute to snap a few pictures, and then smiled.... I never see a spider web (or walk into one.... *ugh*) that I don't think about Charlotte writing the words "Some Pig" and "Terrific" in her web. And even though I've never been a big fan of spiders (other than Charlotte), I can't help but be fascinated by their delicate, silky masterpieces.





























Happy Friday, everyone!

Friday Funny: Waking up is hard to do, Part III

Lily doesn't do mornings.... can you tell?
In case you missed them, Parts I and II can be found here and here.

We've had some heavy rains for most of this week which made it impossible to do anything outside- so it seemed like a good time to get my fall decorations out and get them ready to put up when the weather improved. I decided that since I was in the closet moving things around I would go ahead and clean it out and donate some unused items.
Well, you know how that goes.... one closet leads to another.... then another....
I'll be back in a few days, providing I'm not buried under by a closet avalanche- until then, I'll be catching up with all my blog friends to see what I've missed this week.
Happy Friday, everyone!
