Mr. and Mrs. Pierce

I have always liked these portraits .....but they remind me of the Scoopy Doo show. You remember the pictures that were hanging above the mantle and the eyes followed you! I thought this would be a great time of year for that....although I don't think there eyes will follow you!!!
Right check on the images to save it to your computer. Enlarge them to the size you want, print them out and frame them up!
Another suggestion is to print them on fabric, and make little pillow tucks. Here is a tutorial for printing on fabric

Don't forget to show us how you display out for the eyes!
Happy Sunday!!!

A Little Autumn

I got my Harvest Swap from Julie, Country Girl at Heart.
I knew when I found out we were swap partners that I was in for a treat....and I was so right!!! Look.....

Love all the lovely fabric and the detail....oh so pretty. She is so talented!

Look at the little scarecrow is a painted ice cream spoon glued inside a tiny bag that was filled with candy corn (i ate it already)! They would be great party favors. Also...the wire decoration with my favorite things and a yummy spice tart! Thank you Julie!
Here is the doll(Autumn) and sign I made for her, she has her goodies posted on her blog.

As promised here are a few pictures from around my house......

Close ups...

So far so good!

Hello, Hello!

I really didn't mean to stay away so long...I had another battle with the never ending "sickness"! Turned out to be bronchitis this time. But I am all better now and busy as a bee!
Let me show you some updated pictures of our evolving back yard. Now remember just a few months ago there was nothing but dirt back here! Our barn with recycled fact the one with glass, my Mama got off the street!
Yes, that is Jesus in my little pumpkin patch! He is Risen.....see, he has been on his back since the move. Last weekend we got him up and around here....he weighs a ton!

Here is a sign I made for the barn....

Now, a while back I showed you a picture of a water bed on Cindees Garden Blog.....and I told you I would have one like it .....TA DAA!

I am very happy with it.
Thanks for the inspiration Cindee!

Check out my Market Umbrella I got for half price at the Grocery Store.....25$. You never know where you might find a deal!
We still have a lot more to do .....but sometimes we just have to sit back and look at how far we have come.

Before I took my blog break (LOL!) I won this sweet little sewing pouch from ThreadheadsUnite
Thank You so much ....I love it!

Speaking of giveaways....I am working on another one for you honor of my Birthday October 1st!
Oh yes, I also have been doing a little hooking...Ok pros don't look to close....I am teaching myself!
I am decorating for Fall, so I will be back with more pics.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
