Pumpkin Time!

Pick out your fabric. Cut in any size rectangular shape. The bigger the piece, the bigger the pumpkin.
Sew down the sides, stitch one end, do the stitch part with heavy thread.
stuff and stitch up the other end,

now you must take twine and go through the pumpkin, in one end, out the other. This is easier to do with a crochet hook. Make 4 sections. Tie a knot close to the center. Hot glue a stem (tree branch) and some leaves.

Happy Fall!

Made the wreath with some of my stash. My stash consists of items I've purchased along the years. You know, the items that you buy on clearance. It's such a good deal, you cant pass up. Knowing your not going to use it right away, but it's on sale. And even though when you get home and put it right away, just because you don't want your dh to see it. The next time you do come across it. Is when your having a garage sale. lol

The wreath didn't cost me a penny. I had everything I needed to throw it together. I really have to start going though my stash to see what else I have. It's like getting something new all over again.

While out shopping today, there were a few sales around. Stopped to check things out. Score, plant stand. $1.00! With a new coat of paint, it'll look brand new. Cant wait to clean it up.
Tomorrow I have my yearly flea market. Going to pack up the car tonight. This way I could just jump in and go in the morning. Hoping for a warm day. And hoping to bring less boxes home then what I went with. I have a pot of turkey soup on the stove. Soup weather is here! Going to finish getting ready for tomorrow and have a bowl of soup. Enjoy the rest of your Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend!

You could hear a pin drop

With the kids getting off earlier to school in the mornings. The house seems so quiet and still. No TV on, no computer or xbox running. Gosh, I'm able to get things done and everything stays clean until dinner time. I love school days! Now, if I could only get the boys to make their beds before they leave, it would really be a perfect day. :)

Have a wonderful day!

Welcome September!

What a great month September is. Besides with school starting, September is also the month that I was born. I'll be a big 45 this year. To me, it's only a number. Not a year getting older. I think I get better with age. More smarter, more wiser, more experience as each year goes by. With whoever I meet or with the friends I have in my life. I'm always learning something. This year, I plan on doing something for myself. I always say I'm going to, but never do. For this month I have some goals. One is to join WW again. I do so well in the beginning then I fizz out. You know, when you lose those pounds. Then you see something you want to snack on and know you cant have it. You tell yourself, it's okay, I'll be good after this one time. Right. Bad habits are hard to break. This time, I plan on sticking with it. Going to change the way I take care of myself. Want to excerise more. Even if it means taking Murphy for those extra walks. Which I know he wont mind. I want to take some classes. Maybe a pottery class or maybe some painting classes. Something that I will enjoy doing. Maybe join a bookclub or even start one. I also have alot to change in the house. Need some color updating, new curtains. Just a fresh look.

So with that in mind. I sure hope I find my battery charger for my camera. Which I will be starting my Fall cleaning tomorrow. I am determined to find that charger! Would really like to take some before and after shots. Keep track of the things I want to change. 45 doesn't look that bad. It's going to be a good year.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
