Winter Swap?

Hi Girls! Seems like most of the regular circle is moving to instagram and facebook so I wanted to see how many are interested in a winter swap? It would be mailed the middle of January.If I get at least 6 people interested I'll get it posted for sign ups..It used to be 25+ joined in but lately it hasn't been many joining in. If you want me to host The Heart of Winter Swap please comment so I can see if we have enough this time. Hope everyone is enjoying some cozy time before the Holiday rush!

Autumn Decor and last call for ornie swap

 Hi Friends! Just stopping to share a few pics around the house of my fall decorating. I have been enjoying the season. Took the girls to a corn maze last week and we got lost for over a hour. Finally I told them and hubby I was going my way and we were out in 10 minutes...smile... We were going to do the night one with flashlights I was so glad we decided not too.
 Not alot happening my way just getting ready for the long winter ahead..Sometimes feel like a squirrel running around gathering nuts but I know the cozy nesting season is soon.....

 Hubs found the metal scarecrow at a estate sale and bought it home to me....Love it....
 The annual ornament swap is posted.Just wanted to let you know there is still time to join in the fun.. This used to be the biggest swap and so much fun but with so many moving to Facebook instead of blogging I only have about 7 girls. If you want to join in Click Here for details  All are welcome.
Well girls hope you are enjoying Autumn. I've been making sure to take some time and relax with a warm cup of tea a few times a week. Lighting the candles as the eves are coming in earlier. Today will be baking some Pumpkin cinnamon rolls and taking some out to Grandma's old farmhouse. Warm Blessings!~Amy
