Got all my pots outside put in the barn for the winter except this succulent. Like it on this shelf in my bathroom.

Dappled sunlight shining in is so pretty. We had a sunny Sunday morning and turned cloudy in the afternoon.

I had to share this!

As you know I have wood floors and vacuming has been an issue lately. Especially with 2 cats. Well not anymore. Ladies if you had trouble with your vacum I have some news for you!
I wanted lightweight, an extension hose that was attached but adjustabile, low noise and the best suction, moves easily and stores easy. Well this is it! I stopped at Ann Arbor Vacum on my way home last night and brought it home. Chad says try for a week and if it didn't work for me I could bring it back. I AM keeping it! I can;t believe it has taken me this many years to find such a great product. It is on Consumer report too. How much does it cost? The range from 1400.00 to 399.00. I bought the 399.00 and I know that seems like a lot but it is the best 399.00 I have ever spent. I have been a cleaning fool this morning. I have a real problem bending and no bending with this. Very comfortable for me. And dust and cobwebs are gone..I was even able to reach my ceiling...the extension is long and easy to use. He gave me a package of bags with it and I forgot to ask how much those are but probably pricey. So glad I stopped! ~~Enjoy your Saturday~~ ~Earlene~

Hump Day

Stars and the moon are out tonight. Hope you enjoyed this gorgous day. It was 78 here today and at this hour it is still 70. Very strange for this time of year in Michigan. ~earlene~

Seville Ohio...Medina and Wooster

I have been absent since Friday night. Norm met me after work and off we went for a get away weekend.I have been wanting to go to the Seville Antique Mall again..went about 4 years ago and loved it! I have pictures to show you what I purchased. I was hoping to find some new Fall and such luck but that's okay. We stayed at the Comfort Inn and FYI when you reserve a room and mention Seville Antique Mall your room will only be 55.00! Go to there website and scroll all the way to the bottom and you will see it. We stayed Saturday night too. I love driving at night this time of year because we saw the most awsome Halloween light displays! And darn I forgot my camera!!!! This first treasure is the coolest gourd..looks like a swan doesn't it!
I found it in Seville and this next is my favorite..had to have it. This womans booth was making me spastic...I could have bought everything she had!
It is a breadboard rack with the boards sitting on a cutting board.
This is the cutest little mustard cupboard I found at Brothers Antique Store in Wooster. The inside is very cute and i want to put it in my bay window and decorate it for Christmas.
I have a thing for tin cups and love to collect can do so many decorating themes with them. I also founf a tiny funnel and collect them too.
This is too dark but it is a prim mustard apron I had to have to hang in my kitchen. Driving home today from our weekend was beautiful. The sun was out and 60 degrees. The colors on the trees popped. We drove country roads all the way home. We had enough time to get the lawn cut when we got home. Had to...with all the rain we've had it was getting pretty shabby. Gotta go....catching up with laundry now. Hope you had a great weekend! ~~Earlene!!

Did you get downpour of rain this weekend?

Rain and wind all weekend but it was warm yesterday. Turkeys in my yard last night on the drive home.
Picked these gourds off my sisters vine. What should I do to them?

Evening blog was your week? Went fast for me and excited all today because Ghoultide Gathering started tonight in Chelsea Michigan. It was on my way home from work and how cool is that! I saw the coolest costumes people showed up in for this show. It was a small one ...only 30 vendors but fun just the same. I was so happy that I got to meet Lori Brechlin from Notforgotten Farm. I bought an adorable pinkeep in her booth. She is so sweet! I hope she enjoys Chelsea..she came a long way. Sorry no pics of the was not allowed...bummer. But I understand. I did take a picture of my purchase.
Bags they were passing out.
And.....I couldn't leave without buying some of this awsome Kettle Corn. Michigan made and I had half the bag eaten before I got home. I Love popcorn...I eat too much of it. My favorite snack of all time.
Well have a wonderful weekend. I have my granddaughters tomorrow so I know I will have fun. ~~Earlene~~
