A little Fall decorating

Here are some pictures of the fun I've had with my Fall decorating.  I really enjoy getting my treasures out each year.  I've had some of these things for years and years, and some are new found or newly made treasures.

I picked up this little witch stitchery for $4.00!
Love a good bargain. :)
The view when you step in my back door.

Love this penny rug and coasters from
my blog friend Marilyn!

My front room just inside the front door.
The step is a step up into my kitchen.

The wall going up my stairs is impossible to reach,
so myhusband installed a laundry line for me to
 hang my quilts on.

Well that's all the fun I have time for now.  Laundry and school work are calling (loudly).  
I hope everyone is having a nice Columbus Day.  The weather here is sunny and beautfiul.  A perfect Fall day.  :)

Long Overdue Thank You x 2

I know I have been absent for a few weeks.  I am going to do a quick post right now to send out my sincerest of thank yous to Linda of Parker's Paradise and Denise of Stonewall Craftique.  I won giveaways from both of them several weeks ago, but have not had time to take pictures and post them to share.  I feel so guilty for this delay.  I know it will sound like I'm making excuses, but I can say that I have never had a busier start to the school year than this one.  Blogging (and most fun of any kind) definitely has been put almost completely on hold.  I think we all know that sometimes life is just like that.  On the bright side, I have a terrific class with fun, fun students.  (This helps to make the stress level much more worth while.)

So here are pictures of the amazing loot I received from Linda and Denise.  I loved everything and I have been slowly getting things placed around my house so I can enjoy it all.  This is a 3-day weekend from school, so I am hoping to take pictures of the fall decorating I have taken (stolen) the time to do.

This is the giveaway from Stonewall Craftique - Denise.
The primitive cat head is a pin.  Love it all!

This is my giveaway win from Linda at Parker's Paradise.
I thought I won just one item from Linda, but instead
all of this loot arrived in my mailbox!  

Thank you so much Linda and Denise! 
 I love all the treasure you sent!
