Touches of Autumn

Well girls I want to say thanks again for all your kindness.I feel better knowing that the drugs affect you that much and that this will not be a new peramant thing.I'm the type of person that avoids pills and such at all cost unless I'm dying.I don't even like Advil..Another story entirely so we'll skip my reasoning..I've got the inside decorated for fall.It was alot of pics so I'll break it down into a couple of post.It's supposed to cool down after today and feel like fall so hopefully I'll get the outside done sometime this week..This is one of my favorites as it's all from wonderful friends... Tobbacco basket from Pam.Hooked Pumpkin mat from Lauren.Sweet candy corn from Lindee...

On the old dough riser..The candy corn the pumpkin lady holds was a prize I won from http://thebarnhollow.blogspot.com/ they are hosting a crow giveaway now so stop over and sign up....Just realized the big crock is backwards in this pic.It's blue decorated on the other side..Halloween hooked jack~o~lantern rug...

Autumn Stitchery....

Well busy week with Dad in the hospitol and some other things going on but with the beautiful fall weather I'm hoping to have at least one lazy day around the house this week.Dad wants the chicken corn soup for when he gets home so I'm going to simmer a big pot of that and make some bread tomorrow.I'll have to make some dessert too..smile..I have a ton of pumpkin recipes saved on Pinterest so will try something new.My button is on the sidebar if you girls want to look but caution it's addicting .I also have to go to gettysburg for some errands so I'd love to be able to make a half day trip out of it and visit the battlefield and have lunch.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Hi Amy,
Your decorating is coming along and I'm glad you had the time to do some of it. Might be just what you needed to do for a bit to take your mind off things.
Praying your Dad will come home soon and get to enjoy that special request soup you are making for him!
Bless you~

Lovin' what I'm seeing so far Amy....can't wait for more!! I gotta get myself in a serious gear sometime soon....I've pulled out a little here and there - but, not even worthy of being called a start....

And tempt me not into Pinterest!! I told you - I have enough vices!! ;o) But I do think you should share your chicken corn soup recipe with us!

Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Wonderful fall decorating so far, can't wait to see more pictures! Love the crocks lined up in a row, sweet hooked rug!

Yes, I'm so addicted to Pinterest! Ugh! But lots of neat things to make... my project list was already a mile long, hehe.

I love Gettysburg, it is so beautiful there. I would move there in a heartbeat if I could. I hope you're able to spend a little time enjoying it.

Still praying for your dad~
