Wow! I don’t know about you but, as slow and simmering as Summer has been, we are all of a sudden popping into Fall and Autumn without so much as a fare-thee-well!
To show you how busy I have been, I will share with you a few projects I am working on.
- I have been bringing out my Fall decor a little at a time, (now)
- preparing for a Hawaiian Luau for our church group (7 September),
- sorting through boxes of Christmas ‘stuff” that I ordered on-line (current and past)
- and getting the guest room ready for family and friends coming on the 14th of Sept.
You might ask why I have not “sorted” through the boxes of Christmas stuff as they come to my door and I will tell you that it is easier to take a black marker and mark on the box what is inside and then store it until I am ready for it to come forth from the dark recesses of the cardboard boxes and tape.
True, I might have a boo-boo or two, but for as long as I have been ordering on-line, (which is like forever)…I have never had to return ANYTHING.
I know, right?
What are the odds?
Perhaps one day that will come back and bite me, but the companies I deal with are very easy to work with and so far, no complaints.
So this leads me to one more endeavor I have taken on.
A Weekly Link Party!!! What Fun!
I have joined my sweet friend Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate and Decorate and the wonderful author and maker of Sweet Sensations, (yummy) Sandra Garth, for a link party that we hold each week.
What this means for those who don’t know is: we provide a weekly place or venue for anyone who wants to showcase a recipe or tablescape or gardening or DIY.
It is called….
For example here are a few links from last week that Chloe, Sandra and I would like to spotlight.
The first highlighted selection is mine….and it is from Penny’s Vintage Home, particularly her “Fall Mantel.”
There are just a few simple guidelines or rules for this Link Party.
Well, my dear readers….Have a safe and fun week, tomorrow I have a delicious oatmeal raisin cookie recipe to share that screams Fall.
Perhaps screams is not the correct word…how about quietly says, drink milk and eat an oatmeal raisin cookie.
