What We Did This Summer.....


Yep! You guessed it, the fur kids all have napped most of the summer away!  It's been so hot/humid that they have shown little interest in being outside to play and I don't blame them. Whew! 
The house is nice and cool and who doesn't like an afternoon snooze or two! He hee
Notice kitty Dixie took a liking to the baby quilt mama was working on.  It's difficult to set a quilt in progress aside without her curling up on it to nap!  Silly kitty! 
Hope your summer has been more adventurous than ours, even with the weather being what it's been.  Sure looking for some nice cool autumn days ahead! 
Thanks for visiting!

Sharing Goodies from Misi's "Gable House Goodes" Tag Sale!

Now that my dear friend Sher of "Old Crow Farm" has received her box of goodies that I chose for her at Misi's tag sale held here in Rome, NY I can share what I did with one of my goodies.
Since we have a very curious kitty that loves to get into mischief, I knew the delightful Autumn potpourri had to be displayed safely.
This candle jar (a gift from my sister years ago) was just the thing to use. It's top has holes to let the wonderful Autumn scent waft through the room!  I love looking at it and being reminded that this heat and oppressive humidity won't last forever!
Since the jar wasn't large enough to hold all the potpourri, or the opening large enough I decided to string the wonderful dried orange slices and hang them in our dining area. The aroma was delightful!
Misi's tag sale was the most fun I've had yet for this summer and it was so nice to meet her in person!
Thanks for visiting & have a nice day!
