Hey, all my good prim friends... I want to introduce you to one of my bestest friends that lives here in the state of Oklahoma with me, right down the road. Katie Harris started her new blog Willow Creek Homestead today!! Katie and I have spent a lot of time together this year antiquing and crafting. We have picked up some awesome deals together. I've been bugging her all year long about getting a blog so she can be addicted right along with me, hehe! Katie started a primitive transformation on her home this year and it looks awesome! We'll have to get her to post some pictures for us. =]
I'll be honest... I was always envious of you that have a prim blog friend to hang out with all the time and so wished I had one, well now I do and I am SUPER excited!! So please go on over and give Katie a wonderfully warm prim welcome. I know she will fall in love with all your wonderful, creative blogs and be touched by your sweetness like I have been the past few years. Thanks friends!
I also want to thank each and every one of you that gave me such wonderful advice on my waxed icicles! I have finally decided how to tie 'em up and package 'em. I'll share that in a future post when they are ready. I was hoping to have them ready by now but family first... October was full of football! Three games a week! Not to mention football practices 4 days a week after school.. basketball practices 5 days a week before school.. cheerleading practice 2 days a week after school.. both my boy's birthdays.. plus 3 birthday parties we attended.. trip to the pumpkin patch of course.. overnight guests of my parents (twice in a month to watch the kids' games), friends in a Christian band, my sister and her friend.. checking account was compromised with someone writing fake checks so we had to close out our acct and start a new one, still dealing with that yucky mess.. four concerts that my husband's Christian rock band played in.. ending in Halloween.. Oh, and the total 64.5 doz homemade cookies I made for the month for the JV and Varsity football players to have at every single game, and 48 cupcakes for the middle school cheerleaders (I decided this late in the season so the girls didn't get as many as the boys)..... all of this in the month of October! Whew! No wonder I'm so tired! I was beginning to think that I needed a trip to the dr because my vitamins weren't cutting it but I can see I've just been on the run all month. Anyway, hope to be back with you soon. I have some great steals that I acquired at some sales that I want to share.
Can't have a post without pictures but all I have for now is a little fall foliage around my home. I'm blessed to live close enough to town for when I need something, yet far enough out to feel like I'm in the country.
Looking down our driveway... we still have lots of green!
Coming out of our driveway, going down the little country road that I love to see in every season...
A real beauty in our backyard
Our pond can even be pretty at times
Our family friendly Oak tree in the backyard that houses the treehouse and the horse tire swing as it gives shade to the playset and swimming pool. I adore this massive Oak and marvel at it continually no matter how long I've lived here and see it daily.
Some pretty color in our front yard
To end this post, a couple of views of my next door neighbors
I am so blessed to be living in such a beautiful place. Sadly, I have to see pictures like this to remind me because I see it every day and sometimes take it for granted. So thankful for God's blessings on this homeplace! Also so thankful for the friendships I've made with you, you are a big part of my life and I treasure you all!!
Don't forget to stop in and welcome Katie at Willow Creek Homestead!
Have a delightful first week of November ~
