Taking a closer look- freaky

I was looking at my fall pictures and found something really strange looking. You will notice a white shape on the upper right hand side of the picture. I have no idea what it is as it was not there when I took the picture. No one was standing on the porch and there is no way it is a reflection of something else.That is just plain weird. If you click on the photo you can see it better. What do you think it could be?

I've got nothing.

I have nothing to share with you today. Why? you ask, well that's a good question and the answer is my sewing machine and I are on the outs at the moment. I want it to work but it has decided to take a break. And now is not a good time for it to start acting up. I have Halloween costumes to work on and orders to fill for the shop. Hubby is going to look at it tonight when he gets of work, if he's not too tired that is. He has been work 10 to 13 hours days and he's exhausted by the time he gets home. Hopefully it' a simple fix because I just can't afford to get a new one at this time.

Sorry for such a short but I have to go get ready for work. I am finishing the last day of an 8 day work week. Let me tell you I am so ready for the next two days off.
Take care and have a happy Wednesday.

Another award

Sonya Dawn has given me an award for my Fall decor. Thanks ever so much Sonya. I am honored that you like my outdoor decor.Now I have to pass the award onto 6 more folks. It will be very hard to pick as I love so many of your blogs and many of you have already been honored with this award. But I will try. I will post them later, after I look around a little more. :)

Alive and kickin'-but barely.

Last Tuesday my Mom, Grandma and I took a spur of the moment trip to Ohio's Amish Country. My first time for a Fall trip. It was beautiful.

One of the stores we stopped at was called Country Gatherings

It's a prim lovers delight with prim treasures, furniture and prim scents everywhere. I could have spent the whole day there and I would have been perfectly happy.
However they did manage to drag me out of there and we visited a few others shops before we had to head home.

But being home was not so pleasant since I promtly developed a head cold and it kicked my butt for the next 5 days. When I was not at work being miserable because I couldn't afford to miss work I was at home sleeping and pretty much doing nothing else. The guys had to fend for themselves. My house work was neglected and now I have a week's worth of house work to get caught up on.Yea the guys did help out but they just don't see the things I see that need to be done.

I am feeling much much better today and so I have my work cut out for me. I fell behind on my blog reading and my crafting and it'll take me a month of sunday's to get caugt back up. So if ya don't see me again for a few days send a search party I'll probably be buried under my work. LOL

Bit by Bit

One little bit at a time DH is slowly replacing my Fall decor with his Halloween decorations. Around my house Halloween is a big deal and by Halloween night (Mr Halloween aka DH) will have the yard fully decorated. Last night he started putting out the small stuf and soon the bigger things will be going up. I can't wait to show you when it all done.

6 Random Things about me.

This one is for Sandy, she tagged me a few weeks ago and I've been so busy I forgot to post it. I appologize but better late than never right.

1. I have one brother and no other siblings. I am 6 years older than him and we hardly ever talk despite the fact we only live 1 1/2 hours apart.

2. I cant stand anything strawberry! the site of them just make me want to puke.

3. I am scared to death of snakes. I can't even stand to see one on tv and the rubber one gross me out also.

4. I don't like to do laundry. I will do any other type of house work but when it comes to laundry I leave that to DH who as no problems with it. what a lucky girl I am.

5.I taught myself to sew. My grandmother had been after me for years to learn and even tried to teach me but I just didn't get it. So one ay I finally said I was going to try and so I bought myself a sewing machine and just practiced til I got it right. Now I can't imagine why I waited so long to learn.

6. I love blogging and enjoy visiting others blogs and meeting new bloggy friends. Bloggers are the best and so friendly.

Now I am suposed to tag five others but I think most evryone has already done this, so if you wanna play along just letme know so I can read your random things.

Wow, has it been two weeks since my last Wednesday post? My how time flies when your havin fun. I've just been so busy lately that I've had almost no time for the computer and my bloggin friends. I sure miss you gals. I did find some time though to make a few christmas ornaments for the shop. They turned out really cute.

Also made a stitcherie that I will be turning into a pillow. I am having somuch fun right now with making things for the shop.

Today is wet and rainy and my living room cieling is leaking. It has nver leaked before so I am wondering if it is damage from the wind storm we ha a few weeks ago. It has not really rainned much since then so we didn't know until now. So guess what Dh will be workin on. LOL It's not a big leak but still a leak is a leak and I want it fixed before it gets any bigger.

Well now that you now what I'm working on be sure to Stop by and see what Leslie and the rest of the ladies are working on. That' where I'm heading right now.

A little of this and that.

Wow it's been awhile since I've had something to share as of late beacuse I've been so busy. I told you in my late post I had some news - some of it's good and and some of it's a little sad.
I'll start with the sad news first beacsue I don't want to end my post on a down beat.
Remember Bob the kitten well sadly he lost his battle for survival on Wednesday. Though he was only with us a short time he touched many hearts. He survived much longer than we had expected him to so we are thankful for the time we had with him. He will be dearly missed.

Now for the good news.
I had planned to show you pics of our little booth space as it was seen here.

However before I was able to get that done we moved into our very own room and now we have a shop to call our own. Still in the same place just a better set up. There are four of us in the shop and we are calling it Four Sisters. It feels very cozy and relaxing and we are excited about this new place. So here are a few pics of the new shop.

It is will always be changing to keeps things looking fresh and new. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and the wonderful adventures and new friends it will bring.
We plan to have classes in quilting, spinning, candle making, soap making,knitting and crocheting. Along with kids crafts and whatever else tickles our fancy.

I'm still here.

I'm sorry I haven't blogged lately. I have been doing some major decluttering in my house and have not been online much in the last week. I feel so far out of touch with everything and am so far behind on all thats been happening.The decluttering was something that was WAY over due and it had gotten so out of control that I could no longer stand it. I felt it was hurting my creativity and I knew I had to get to it and so I dove in head first and finally got through it. I now have more time to devoteto my art work and am feeling much better now. And I have some over do blog reading to do and a few posts to write but not much time today. I do have news to share but that will have to wait til I have time this weekend.
I've missed you my friends and will be back soon. Til then Take care and happy bloggin.
