Mr. Postman

Yea!!! I got mail.
3 great things came in the mail recently!

I won a junktastic necklace from Margo,

 was gifted a super sweet cup towel from Laurel

 She mentioned it might look good layered with some other things for my curtain...and it would, but I also love it in my hutch... I adore it! Thanks, Laurel!

For now, I bought 5 cup towels at the $ Tree, if they hadn't worked, I'm always needing new cup towels. I had an apron up before.

Our pennant light was just on a cord, so William bought a little length of pipe to fit over the cord.

and last delivery, I purchased an ironing board cover from  Stringbean 17's Etsy Shop,
          so groovy, 
70's style fabric...
                        more  about that later.

I went to Laurie Anna's Saturday...
                       over the top amazing, as usual!

Thanks so much for all the advice, in previous post...I took a deep breath and am going with white, at least for now. It will be easy to change later, if I get the hankerin'!  Black is still running around in my head, too. I'm really loving what we've accomplished, recently.  I appreciated all the sweet words, more than you could know!

We are getting ready for the Christmas Tour. My sister decorates the administration building, for the district wide Christmas Tea, each year. This year, the administration building is also on, our town's tour, The Mabank Christmas Tour...I would love to invite anyone to come.  It is December 4th. There are always great houses to see!...More details later, but a fun day, for sure! Just a little tease about something we are working on...

An exemplary stroll through winter...

and a few more shots of the huge heritage hutch filled up and in  the house...still need to put some cup hooks in, but I am certainly enjoying  the extra storage.  
It makes me grin with delight.
Do you have pieces that make you grin?

old shoe Moma made, tater masher, bird's nest, (notice the Nestea label the birds used)  wasp nests, acorns, branches...
               Just some nature stored away.

Happy 100 Post to Me!

Happy 100th post to you, indeed! I always enjoy reading your thoughts and admiring your photos. Your creativity speaks volumns. Keep it up! And yes. I have a piece that makes me grin and giggle. She's called Thunder Thighs. A wonderful piece of statuary. ~Mindy

Oh you have done so well! I'm so happy for you. That necklace will be perfect for you -- it has your name and style all over it! All your pictures are totally yummy! So what color is that door? I better take a scroll down to see if I missed anything.

I love your cup towel curtain. I need something different for my kitchen window and just might try that. Still loving that old cupboard and the way you've placed the things in it.

Congratulations on the 100th post.
