The Winnings

Last night, Mimi made her first appearance at BUNCO since way back in the spring.  Guess I hadn't forgotten how to play 'cause . . . I WON!! Well, technically it was only one of the six prizes but I was still very excited.  Can't you tell?  Isn't the bag so pretty and fall looking?

AND, Queen Cybil Elizabeth, do you see your pretty rose is still blooming?  I picked it on Sunday so it's looking a little ragged now but still smelling wonderful.  Guess it's in honor of your first "real" day in kindergarten. 

Here's the adorable gifts ~ ~ the cinnamon candle smells just like fall and I love the saying on the cute towel.

And it won't be long now until I can put them out . . . not yet, though; remember Mimi is still holding onto summer for just a little while more.

Today I cut these hydranges for my sewing room (plus a wonderful smelling gardenia) and guess what?  I  now have a cricket chirping in my sewing room somewhere!  That noise is making me insane . . .

oh, where are you little fellow?

Since you're determined to stay hidden, guess I'll see you in the morning! And by the way, please stay downstairs!!

{why, oh, why didn't I shake those things before I brought them inside!!}

    I wouldn't mind getting into Fall but it is still so hot here, I can't do fall decos yet.:)
    Your cut flowers are lovely.

  4. If I can possibly get all 7 of my grandgirls together for just one second, I sure would love to have a header like yours. :))
