Child-Like Excitement!

While driving along one Saturday afternoon my husband and I came upon this delightful little animal display.

 I was really excited and felt like a kid! 

What is it about animals that make us so happy?

This was in the yard at a nursing home I guess they brought the animals in to for the patients to see.

It seems to me that it is the simple joys in life that make us the happiest!

Pumpkin Carving

Today I saw some photos of the most amazing carved pumpkins! So after a little research the web site of Ray Villafane was found.  These are some photos from his site.

I think they are simply wonderful and wanted to share with all of you.  If you want to see more of his work go here .

OMG What Was I Thinking??

It all started with my delight when I saw this beauty on My Little Home and Garden blog.  I have never seen this plant or heard of it before "Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate"...well the internet search began

and I ended up with all of these!!

 Oh yes these came in the mail yesterday and then I thought what the heck (I used another word) was I thinking. I've never started flowers from seeds before but guess I have until Feb-March to figure it out.

Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate is called Polygonum Orientale and it's right there with the other seeds sure hope it is as beautiful as the photo.

Autumn / Halloween Decorations

Over the years I've stopped decorating for Halloween / Autumn so I've found Pinterest to be a wonderful place to get my fall decorating fix!

This outstanding fall garland was made by  Sandra at My Bella Rose as you can see it is huge! Sandra says everything is bigger in Texas! I love it ... it makes me smile!

All these beautiful ideas almost make me want to decorate!

This is a Disney Pooh Bear and Piglet night light perfect for the nursery.

This round Christmas tablecloth is very pretty!

A pink milk glass cake plate made by Jennette Glass. 
It is a very soft pink. Beautiful!

 I did a lot of research on this Micky Christmas ornament but could not find one like it.
It did sale for $25.00 in one day!

Very cute Christmas figurines made in Japan.

These are sweet chalk ware babies to hang on wall.

Always buy chenille bedspreads they sell really well.
This one sold in a couple hours for $42.00.
When things sell quickly I know the price could have been higher.

I need to take more photos there is lots and lots to show you!

Garden Art Handmade by ME!

 While everyone is posting about their wonderful fall decorations and crafts (which I love) I'm showing you my garden art the only craft I've made this year.  I've always wanted to make one of those mosaic bowling balls for my yard.  Well after Christmas I found these two plastic huge ornaments and decided to make them into yard art.  I think it turned out pretty good!  Still have to make the other one  and yes I do have a bowling ball somewhere in the house waiting to be decorated!

Here is a photo from the trip I made to Lowes looking for fall flowers.
