Nature, Halloween, Gifts...
Our day trip Sunday was not the best. Up at 4:30 am too early with not enough sleep. No sooner had we begun the twisty winding road and I got motion sick...really sick! We stopped for me to walk around in fresh air. Lots of roads and curves and unknown territory and we were getting closer to meeting up with the car club group. Oops...where did he come from?!! Mr. C got a speeding ticket and I felt really bad for him. He was only going 73 mph and had just passed a truck in a passing lane. DRAT! The day never got any better and we skipped the two wineries and paid for lunch to make the long drive home. Thankfully we came home via less horrible roads. I went to bed and lost the rest of the day. On our way home we stopped at our favorite bird sanctuary and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Nature and Fall in glorious splendor.
Here are my Halloween "Pretty Witches" I received in Kimberly's ArtJoyStuff swap. These are fabulous. Thank you to (L to R) Michelle, Kimberly, Carolyn, Sylvia, Kimberly. These are displayed with my table decorations. I adore them.
I received very happy mail. I commented on Becky Shander's blog post about beach finds and she offered to share hers with me since I don't live near the beach. How very generous. This is how she cleverly packaged my treasures.
These shells and tiny driftwood pieces are beautiful. They truly mean so much coming from a dear creative soul and friend. I have never met Becky however I feel very close to her and her muse. Thank you dear.
This is the amazing surprise she created and gifted to me. With my love of needle and thread and sewing and how she put together this tiny collage I am truly smitten. Becky you have made my heart sing with joy and love. Thank you beyond words. If you are not familiar with Becky's art just get a copy of the latest Somerset Handcrafted magazine. Her sweet simple necklaces are on the cover. The cover!!!
A new week is rushing along. I am so far behind I really must re-prioritize my to do list. I have not forgotten the thank you's I owe and have yet to accomplish. I did take a day last Saturday to go down the hill and visit with my sister and my niece. I had not seen my niece for about a decade. Megan you looked beautiful and I very much enjoyed our visit. Marie and Meg and I tried a new place for lunch and it was delicious. Gave us lots of time to chat and catch up. I am blessed to have such a wonderful sister and niece.
Where was I? Oh yes, more than behind...yet here I sit at my computer posting my blog. Well, you see I feel blogging is very important and I enjoy it very much so for me it is not time wasted. That's my story!
This is our last of perfect weather. Colder temps are on their way. Winter is sneaking in on the remains of Fall. Safe and Happy Halloween celebrations this weekend.
Christmas creating is in full swing on the blogs I follow. Here not so much. I will catch up...I will...I will...
Blissful days and nights to all...
