Monday Madness...

I love my crazy, topsy-turvy, hectic life. It seems like there is always something going on. This past weekend I had friends over for a purse party, then went shopping with my daughter. Sunday was church and I had the pleasure of doing children's church. Sunday evening was my granddaughter's birthday party.

Today, I'm decorating my house for fall, making dessert for the Ladies Night Out Fiesta tonight, and picking out my "prizes" for my purse party.

Here are some of my favorite fall items, some old....some new.

Here's a basket I put together this morning with some flower I bought at the $ tree. Had everything else here.


I got a pair of these little leaf candy dishes several years ago at Walmart for just $2.00 each.


My harvest angel. She came from a craft store in Gatlinburg. She stays out year 'round to remind me that we should celebrate Thanksgiving every day since God bestows so many blessings on us.


Meet Boo. I have had him about 9 years. One of my clients would send me a new cookie jar for special occasions. Boo comes out every year to hold sweet treats for the grandkids.


You all know how much I love my teapots. Thought this really personified fall.


My niece Amy came to visit recently and brought me this beautiful dish towel. She knows I love my seasonal decor.


Found this pumpkin at a great deal several years ago at Cracker Barrel. I couldn't resist it.


Meet Pete and Polly. My daughter-in-laws mother made these for me about 12 years ago and they get a place of honor in the Living Room every fall.

I love your decorations. I also have a fall angel. I love her. I really like the cookie jar. I'll have to get me one and do the same thing with snacks for the kids. Great idea!!! The basket with the peaches in it on my picures I picked up Sat. at a yard sale for 50 cents. I just love fall!!!
