Doggievision

Just thought I stop in and give you a smile today.This is were Mung likes spending his early evenings on his hammock watching out his fence window.He is a very smart dog and acts like he is watching his TV. Mung is finally back on his feet since tearing his acl took about 3 months but no surgery.He definitely has not learned his lesson though as he is back to his pushy self...smile...Hope you girls are having a wonderful Fall week!

Inside Fall Decorating Pics and Ornie Swap Reminder

 Well I've been busy and almost forgot to post the Halloween and Fall Decorating. Finishing up the market season and getting ready to nest.I'll have to admit I'm ready this year.People have been just out and out rude and disrespectful at times. One man even watched his kid break a antique, I said you do realize your kid broke that. He said it's not my kid. The mother came and said well it was fragile I said yes it's over 75 years old. Then  she says he didn't do it.I said I saw him and the man with him saw him you weren't here. They contemplated made some rude comments, I sat and didn't say anything never ask them to pay or anything just hoped they would teach their kid not to touch things without asking.The item was only $10 anyway. The man who said it's not my kid hands me $10 and says I hope you enjoy burning in Hell.I said ok but not quit sure why I would be going to hell over you not watching your kid.Alot of stealing this year too just little things but still.Don't get me wrong I love so many of my buyers and some are even close friends over the years but it's just been alot more people with no moral integrity or respect for others.I'm seeing it everywhere not just market.Anyhoo a break will be good...smile.... I've tried to simplify lately so not going all out like I used too. This sweet stitchery was a christmas gift from sister in law (jean primcrafts) last year. Yep had to wait a whole year to put it out....

 Leave this little hooked mat out from Lauren all year. The pumpkin and colors just make me happy..


 The Sheep is a gift from Madelyn Pineapple Primitives everyone always ask. I change out his little cart seasonally....

Well today was lovely.I did a little market up in the mountains and the drive was just beautiful with all the fall colors.They didn't buy alot but no rude people..smile.. Tomorrow it's supposed to get blustery and cold. Then I think we are in the 50's all week.There is still time to join in the ornie swap if you want. You have about 3 weeks to get them to me.The info is on the top sidebar for signups just click the snowman.Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!~Amy

My Partners were Linda Country Pickins Blog  and Kendra The Stone House Primitives Blog     Let me just say both of these sweet ladies have became special friends over the years.We chit chat through email and offer encouragement on both good and not so good life. Wonderful just to know you have a friend you can get it out with no judgement. First up is Linda...
I just love the crow envelope....
The Maple Syrup room spray and candle are so Yummmy! They don't sell this in our area and I'm so glad Linda sent it.Perfect combined with all the fall scents from pumpkin pie to apple cider....The next items were not part of the swap Linda just sent a extra little box for friendship and as a thank you for hosting the swaps...
Next up is Kendra... I'm surprised she was able to get a package together with all she had going on and playing nurse to a very sick rescue puppy as well....
I love the wool pumpkin on spring and seasonal handsoaps are such a special little indulgence throughout the year....
Look at the sweet beeskep wood mold...LOVE...  Thanks so much girls. Such wonderful gifts....

Sunflowers and Bumble Bees

 Yes sunflowers and Bumble Bees two of my favorites..smile... I planted the sunflowers late this year and they are just now in pretty bloom...This little bee was enjoying the sweet pollen all to himself while the others were distracted by the normal russian sage they so love. He was kind enough to let me snap some pictures in between my outside fall decorating....
 Saturday we went on a lil trip and I found a wonderful blue bucket to keep and some nice prims to sell.This weekend is supposed to be chilly which I love but send up a little prayer for sun on Saturday  as I want to set up my wares at a historical homestead in Maryland. The man has asked me several times to come and this week is the week I decided to go. It's only about a half a hour from home.I'll get pics if it all works out.
 Loving the earlier eves and the nesting feelings fall brings on. I'm all done decorating will share soon.I've pinned, looked through magazines and books and have like a million recipes I want to make. Been trying a few already.. Candles lit each day in warm comforting scents. Hubby was making pork chops the other day and I was disappointed that it wasn't the baked apple cinnamon pie I was smelling.LoL..The chops were good though..
The girls are getting big they will be 12 this October. Trying to cram in as many memories as I can even though Brianna said I embarrassed her at the carnival really I think it was hubby because he was wrestling around with her and some boys saw, still haven't figured out which one she liked..smile.. So hoping to get lots of corn mazes,hayrides, bonfires and sleepovers in before they are officially teens.I'll try to get some pics soon they are funny now about that too. They don't look so much alike anymore. Brianna looks so much like her mom.Luckily she is nothing like her in charactor. Hannah is still very sweet and kindhearted. Well girls it's getting late. Talk soon!~Amy
