I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. We had a great time, lots of food and laughter.
I was anxious to get up this morning to start my Christmas decorating. Most of it is finished except for the tree and I will do that on Sunday.
Sweet Dreams

Fridays shopping trip....

My friend Bobbie and I took off yesterday afternoon for Ohio to attend 2 open houses, The Grainery and Cornfield Primitives.
We had a great time! On the way home we stopped at Pat Catans store, never been to one and loved it. I wish we had one near us.
I managed to find 4 new treasures.

The bottom bench from Jamie at Cornfield Primitives.
I love the look of stacking them.

Chubby sweet snowman from Sandra, the Grainery.

Primitive tall tree, The Grainery.

Santa ornie from Cornfield Primitives.

It was 74 degrees in Ohio all day, perfect day.
Here also and today it is snowing!
We were lucky to have nice weather for such a long period.
I am so glad I got my outside decorating done.
~Enjoy your weekend~

Started thinking about how to decorate for Christmas this year.
Bought this ( heavy) early primitive sled on Sunday and will probably use it on my table and decorate with measures and fresh greens.
Lots of great primitive shows coming up.
Love this time of year.

My youngest grandchilds birthday is tomorrow.

She is so beautiful and it seems just like yesterday she was a toddler. She is in 8th. grade this year.
 I spent several hours on Monday changing my dining room around and cleaning it along the way. Thought I would suffocate with all the dust LOL!
Took some pieces I no longer wanted to my booth yesterday and looking for more primitive pieces to replace it with.
Lots of great primitive shows coming up so I know I will find some more great pieces. 

September is coming to an end and October is a favorite month for a lot of you.
