Okay, okay, still don't have my memory card, but I will have it by tomorrow night! My step-son, Rich, is getting married this weekend and I NEED to be able to take pictures. Our little Jack, Ellie and Sydney are all in the wedding. They will all be so adorable.
Went over to take a gander at our new "home" tonight and it is moving right along. The drywall is ready to sand and there's only about 2 weeks (if that) worth of work to be done before we can paint and carpet. Can't wait to get settled and cut out some of the running. It's starting to look pretty cozy - just want to start decorating and primming it up! I haven't put out any of my fall goodies yet, keep thinking we will be moving soon. I'm SOOO jealous of the pictures I am seeing all over the blog (not really), but I'm anxious to get into those boxes!
I have read so many comments about how fall is a favorite time of year. Boy, that's the truth! What are your top ten favorites about fall? Will you share? Mine are: 1) Warm days, cool evenings 2) Great goodies at the Farmer's Markets - pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks, mums... 3) Swetshirts and shorts 4) Decorated houses and porches 5) Cider mills with warm donuts 6) Sweet Annie and Bittersweet - fresh 7) Prim craft/antique shows 8) Decorating the shop 9) Crafting Halloween goodies and 10) Trick or treating. I'd love to hear what you love too.
Time to finish straightening up the house, but I WILL have pictures again real soon!
Until next time...


  1. If your anything like me your fingers are just itching to decorate that new home of yours. I dislike the moving part but the blank walls were always begging me to do it up will have a ball doing it:)
    I'll be waiting to see all the prim pictures you will be showing us soon!

  2. Good morning Dawn,
    It's not even Dawn here as I'm typing up even before the birds!!!

    I can say my 'fall favorites' are very close to yours! What's not to love huh?

    I'm so anxious to see your new home.
    Now just what is happening there...are you going to be living in the whole house and that is being remodeled or is it an addition to the original home that will be your home and your mother will stay in the original part.
    I must have missed that part a long time ago.

    You'll be in there in no time and how fun will that be? You are a good daughter!

    P.S. Enjoy that wedding this weekend!

    Hugs, Karen

  3. OH I love your top ten - though I'd replace warm days with cool days. And I wish I had a shop to decorate!

    Enjoy the wedding and the anticipation of your new home!!

    hugs, Linda

  4. Dawn,
