How about our St. Louis Cardinals?? They are rockin it. The last time I remember all of this excitement I was giving birth to my second child. Boo as you guys know him. It was in 1982. His dad, wanted me to name him Ozzie after Ozzie Smith and I said without hesitation NO!!! Now I think Boo might have been happy with that name. Tell me, does he look like an Ozzie? This was Boo last year. He just turned 29 on the 9th of this month. One more year and my baby boy will be 30! YIKES!!! And I'm only 29.
Now that I've had my Halloweenie decor out for a couple months I'm ready to roll out the......ok I won't say it. I sent Nancy a text pic yesterday of a Christmas tree in my bedroom and aksed her, "is this too soon?" lolol She of course said YESSSS. I left the tree up anyway. I'm enjoying it.
I even bought my first Christmas Annie's of the season. Oh yea Nicole's already whipping them up over on her site. They go fast you better get over there.
I went to Mexico, Missouri the other day to visit Homestead Hearth and there is a great antique shop along the way. They had all of this Christmas stuff out. Not antiques obviously but still, I managed to bring some home with me. Half of the store is either seconds or leftovers from some store I imagine. I just love holiday's. Can't wait for the next one, Thanksgiving to begin.Not to mention that's hunka and my anniversary. Yep we were married the day after Thanksgiving years and years ago. Ok, so it wasn't that long ago. 1989 to be exact.
This made me think of my BFF. Why you ask?? Because it's a cat. She's not a cat but she loves cats.
Hunka and I were at the grocery store last week taking pics of these. Haaaa can't you just hear them all laughing?? Sort of scary really? Yvette, are you afraid??
Loved the purple hair.
Sort of jumping around here. But I bought two quilts at local antique malls recently. This is one of them.
This is what I made Nancy for Halloween. The photo is not good, hopefully she will get a better one. It's an old Thimblerries pattern. I loved it. Tried to make two but just didn't get around to it.
Before I forget Leisa your the winner of the PKM fat quarters. When my fab comes in I'll get them out to you.
We have a beautiful hotel in the Wildwood Center close by our house and they have turned the fountain water a shade of red/pink. I can't decide if it's pink for breast cancer awareness or a light red for the Cardinals. So I'm saying it's for both. Either way I think it's cool. I see it everyday, it's in the center where my local Starbucks is.
Isn't that hotel pretty? And all the trees in the background changing colors. I love it here!! Have I told you that lately?
When I woke up the other morning I noticed the Holly Berry trees blooming. I love the RED berries. These trees have gotten huge. We are way up and the trees are taller than my window. I want to reach out the window and cut some of the branches and bring inside.
Can you tell how high up we are?? That's the fish down there. We don't have a two story house. It's because of the basement I guess that we are up so high. From the front of our house it looks small. Anyway, that's why we pay someone to clean our windows. Remember hunka falling off the ladder when we were selling our Ca. house? I don't trust him up there anymore and I'm for sure not going up there.
Alright then, that was alot of stuff!! Sorry to jump around but I take so many pics and don't get around to showing them.
