Halloween Giveaway

Good evening sweet blogging friends.
I thought to myself this weekend....
sometimes I think out loud too. LOL

Well I thought...geez Janice, its been a long while
since you offered a giveaway.

I answered myself by deciding to giveaway my Halloween Kitty.

This will be an easy peasy giveaway.
Thinking back to your childhood,
what was your most memorable Halloween costume.

Mine was being a lady pirate.
My mom made my polka dot skirt and white blouse.
She also made me a kerchief that I wrapped on my head and 
I thought I was coolest girl with my big hoop earrings,
because my mom did not believe in young girls getting their ears pierced.

Just by leaving a comment with you memorable costume will give you one entry.
Share this giveaway on your blog, you will get two chances to win.
If you bring over a new follower, you will get five chances to win.

Open to current and new followers for both my
US and Canadian blogging friends.

Drawing to be held this Friday October 9th.

Good Luck!
Pre Halloween Blessings To All!

Comfort and Joy

A Happy Saturday morning to all of my blogging friends!
Well wishes to those living on the East Coast
who are bracing for some major flooding in some areas.
It could be much worse if Joaquin had landed.
When Hurricane Sandy hit,
we actually had strong winds and rain hit here in Michigan.
We were was 4 times worse on the coast where she landed.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
With the cold snap we have had recently....
and yes Bob turned on the funance much to my dismay.  

I brought out the quilts and also my newest find
to give me comfort in the coming days and nights.

It is a lovely blue and white center seamed
I would love to  know if you could tell me the pattern.
Is it an overshot? Is it considered a 4 square pattern?
I have to idea, so anyone who knows please share.

It is big enough to fit on a 3/4 bed.

Don't you just love this pattern..whatever it may be.

My next two finds just give me joy.
This black tiny pantry box....which will eventually find
its way to my stack of them.
For now don't it look sweet here for Autumn?

Also this small gathering buttocks basket.
I just fell in love with it size and look.

The darker blue coverlet on the bottom fits our queen bed,
just to give you a comparison on the two.
I placed my gathering basket on top...
just waiting for a wee orange pumpkin to place inside.
Cannot seem to find any right now in our neck of the woods.

Thank you for being such great friends.
Now I am off to do my weekly grocery shopping,
come back and do laundry and work on some snowman.
Yes, working on Christmas already.

Comfort and Joy Blessings To All!

September CupboardScape

Whew, I made it.
Last day of the month, but I made it.
Good evening sweet blogging friends.
First I want to thank you all for your well wishes for my daughter.
The surgery went well, 
however her heart rate and blood pressure both remain high.
 She is still dehydrated from surgery
and cannot eat anything without it coming back up.
She will need to go back to the doctor tomorrow.

Hope everyone is doing well.
I cannot believe there are only 86 days until Christmas.

For my September CupboardScape,
the letters are "Q" and "R". 
For those that know me,
I have quite a few quilts, so that part was easy.

Another simple display.

Consisting of a Rag Rug.

Rug Beaters.

Plus a few Quilts.

I actually have quite a few, but could not bring them all out.
The others are being kept safe in a blanket chest...
and there is a cupboard on the blanket chest
that I could not lift up.
It is part of our upcoming bedroom redo.
However these quilts were in the hall closet.
I do bring them out when the weather gets chilly.
Yes we do use these!

Do any of you use your quilts in chilly weather?

Kitty Pocket

Good evening sweet blogging friends.
My daughter has her surgery in the morning.
We have to be at the hospital by 5:30am,
so I have yo go to bed real early.
Please say a wee prayer for her
as she is having major neck surgery
to fix soe vertabrae that were messed up 
from a work accident.
I know prayer is a powerful word.
Thank you!

Hope everyone is doing well this first full day of Autum.

I was in the penny mood and got carried away
making pennies and made this.
What does one do after making 
a wool penny pocket?

Stitched these pennies on some brown print fabric.

My Ace kitty likes to jump into things all of the time.

He must have been talking to this fella.

Good evening sweet blogging friends.
Our buying trip was a successful one.
We were so tired when we got back that the van is still loaded.
We were able to find more architectural wood
for the door frames and closets for our upcoming
bedroom redo.
Yes, we still have another room to do.
Since we only have a 2 bedroom home,
and our son is still living here.....
well we are waiting until he moves out.

Now that I went off on a tangent...
let me get back to what we bought.
Sorry, no pics yet.

I picked up a black pantry box to add to my stack,
and another shoe form...seem to be addicted to these lately.

Seems like I was picking everything else white...
so for our upcoming primitive Christmas show
in Breckenridge, MI, 
our theme will be
"White Christmas"

Once we unload the van, I will take a few sneak peeks.

Back to Halloween.  

My latest witch with her potion bottle around her neck.

Sporting this Autumn mum on her hat.
These went into the store a few weeks back.
A few are still left.

In The Penny Mood

Good evening sweet blogging friends!

Was in the penny mood this day.

My favorite colors of Autumn.

I decided to create these wool penny mats
to go with our new candles we brought into our store.
We use to sell candles and then our wholesale company 
stopped making them.
We just found another one that we simply adore,
so once again we are selling candles.

A few scents Monkey Bombs (bananas and melons)
Pumpkin Pie and Harvest for autumn.
Fresh Cut Grass to name a few.

Do you like?

Bob and I are off on a buying trip 
in the morning for the entire weekend.
Cannot wait!
Doctor gave me the ok to go as long as I don't overdo
on walking.
Hope to find some wonderful goodies for our store, shows and 
of course for our home.

Penny For Your Thoughts Blessings To All!

Skinny Dipping Turnip Loving Kittens

Hello Blogging Friends.
The temps have been rising a bit again
after some chilly weather last week.
One day I decided to take my needlework outside 
with me and enjoy the river.

These three little kittens really enjoyed basking in the sun.

After skinny dipping in the river,
they decided to get dressed again.
Its a good thing the Border Patrol did not catch them. LOL

It was lunch time, so they decided they would like some turnips.
Turnips and greens were their absolute favorite.

However only one was ripe and they had to wait for me
to pick (er make) the other ones from my fabric garden.

They were so happy once they each got their own.

These three little kittens were hungry no more.

Turnip Green Blessings To All!
