Home and Garden Thursday



Home and Garden Thursday


All thoughts of Autumn and Halloween are beginning to fade. Thoughts now turn to Thanksgiving and all things Christmas. Isn’t it something how quickly time flies. I was watching our little Dachshund sunbathing and the leaves twirling around her. When I told Dearest about this he replied, ‘so you took a picture?’ ‘No’, regretfully my camera battery was charging at the time. Perhaps I need a spare! So many delightful posts – you all are doing a marvelous job sharing and visiting – I do appreciate you.

Here are the posts I shared with you last week:

Happily I was able to find nearly everything I’d hoped for and at fantastic prices! This Demijohn, these wire baskets and an Olive Bucket are now residing in my kitchen.

Country Living Fair 2013 cI shared a few more photos of the sites you could see at The Country Living Fair. This pile of pumpkins and gourds is at the front – it is a great place to meet and to photograph – I saw a lot of adorable little ones!

  18. I love that stack of pumpkins and gourds – quite a beautiful bounty! Years ago my aunt had a dress form very much like yours, and her sewing room was also the guest bedroom. I always hated sleeping in that room because the dress form looked like a ghost in the dark to me! Thanks for hosting!
