   I've been cleaning all evening. Hoping I can get things ready to decorate the house for Christmas real soon!  Changed the living room around yesterday with the help of my 2 year old grandaughter. lol   I was pushing furniture and she had her hands on my backside, pushing me, saying "I help you memaw"!  I know Christmas is going to be so great this year because she is a little older and  can get excited about  everything!   
       I spent last weekend alone at the farm in Ohio and surprisingly, I really enjoyed it!  I did some shopping, just worked on the house and finally got to make some signs using my new stencils! I've had them for a few weeks and all of my things to work with were in Ohio. Oh yeah, I went to a historic area in Parkersburg and took pictures of some of the old houses there.  I love looking at old houses, cabins, victorians, farms, whatever!  So here are some of thoses as well as some of my new signs!  Let me know what you think!

A little of this and that.....

 Well, I am loving the weather this week!   Last week made me realize that I am not ready for the cold weather yet!  When I got to the farm last, my apple tree still had tons of little apples on it and I took these pics but I'm sure that they are gone now since it's been so cold!

  I've been trying to organize my craft room and I have so much DMC floss that instead of seeing if I have a color to make a project with, I just buy what I need so that I don't have to look through all of it.  So I am hoping to take it from this.........

to this.......

  This is a fall scene from the farm. I've really been missing it this week. I haven't been able to go there for three weeks!  That's probably the longest I have went all summer without visiting!

       I love this cabin! It's in a state park here in West Virginia. It was moved to this spot from another location nearby and it's where husband asked me to marry him! Right there on those very steps!!

   This is the latest project that I have completed.  It's from Prairie Schooler and I'm bummed that I didn't get it finished before Halloween, but I guess I'll have it for next year!
 Until next time, hope everyone is having an aweome Fall and getting lots of projects finished!
