Stocking and Bird Ornament

I finished this stocking and Colonial Bird ornament to sell on Etsy this past weekend. I have such a long list of things to make ~I need to get busy. I'm making most of my Christmas gifts this year and have two swaps I'm signed up for. I also have some things I'd like to make for myself for my Christmas decorating. There's not enough time for it all! :-) I'm having fun doing it though and this is the first year I've done a swap, so I'm excited :-) !

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino

Today is a very chilly day here in Bellevue, NE. It feels like fall for sure. I had to run out to the post office and the BX today and decided to get a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino at Starbucks on the way out of the BX. It's one of my favorite fall treats ~ even though it's kind of cold to get one on a chilly day~ I love them ! They'll only be around until the end of November and then I get to enjoy the Peppermint Mocha or the Gingerbread. Yummy!

Fabulous Fall Decor Award

Thank you Jamie from The Miller Homestead for this Fabulous Fall Decor Award ! I have seen so many wonderful homes decorated for fall and I just can't choose 6 to give this award to. This is such a pretty award and if you'd like to post it on your blog feel free to do it ! I love fall enjoy seeing how everyone has decorated their homes and think you all deserve this award ! Happy Fall !

Harvest Sale

My Harvest sale went pretty good today. It started to sprinkle this morning right after I put everything out, but it stopped and turned out to be a nice day. It was a bit warm for me though~ I was hoping for the 60's not 80 . I didn't really know what to expect~ it's hard to find many people in this area that might be interested in prims. I did meet a couple webshots and blog friends that stopped by. I also met a new prim~ loving friend that lives right around the corner from me ! The ladies from Weathered N Worn even stopped by and bought a couple things. Thank you all for coming !Here are some pics from my little Harvest Sale~
Now I will start thinking about what to do for my Christmas giveaway in November :-)
