Well....you Cutie Pie, you...

Hi, everyone...

Hope your weekend was great...mine was :)

When I looked outside on this last Friday morning, I had a package...sitting right beside pumpkins and witches...

OOO, not much more fun in the world than getting a package in the mail.

I saw right away that it was from a sweet, sweet blogging friend,

*sucked in my breath so fast when I saw this,
I got so dizzy, I nearly fell down.

A beautiful, snow white, crocheted PUMPKIN...

 An "Eggceptional" Winter Tea...
how fun is that...
(and I love the little heart over the j)

 ummm...absolutely DELICIOUS.
Thank you, Kitty.

giveaway I hosted not long ago and she sent me a
THANK YOU box of all these wonderful things....

such a sweet thing....

such a sweet lady.

This adorable little white crocheted PUMPKIN
is so photogenic that I had a blast, posing her all around the house....
and she seemed to like the LIVING ROOM best.

She just shined when I propped her on top of

Yes, ma'am...she loved that color...and that color loved her. 

and she LOVED being included in all this texture...

the smoothness of leather,
crocheted pillow and linen-like fabric...

and she loved that SHE was the snow white ROCK STAR here...

 you cute little thang, you...

awww, baby doll....are you getting sleepy?

(I think a person tends to get really silly as they age..we love to PLAY...)

I'm getting off the subject here for just a second...

I wanted to add a touch of turquoise to my leather sofas
but loved the off-white throws over the backs...
I like the looks of turquoise on whites more than brown leather..

So, I bought a $12 smaller throw in turquoise at DOLLAR GENERAL...

and just layered  it over the off-white throw and LOVE IT.

The $12 dollar one is really a luscious color...deep and rich.

Getting back to the little STAR OF THIS POST....

I think she finally found her SPOT...
right up there on the mantel....

See how pretty she is around

...and as good as this pair looks together, you'd think they were both movie stars...

Just look at that yummy looking cotton, right out of the cotton field...

 O, and when you are at the dollar stores...
don't rush thru too quickly because you might miss something as cute as this
PARIS FLEA MARKET sign with little flowers, flag banners
and in the BEST color.
Dollar General for $4,
and I just love it.
hahhaaa...ain't life grand !...it's the little things, ya know.

"Kitty, I do love this and I appreciate you making it for me."

We do have some beautiful cotton out here in West Texas...and I love decorating with it so much...so pure white...so soft and natural...
the crops are late as we had a long, cold winter and farmers couldn't plant until
the ground thawed.

Thanks for coming by...
I'd invite you to stay for a cup of this new, delightful tea Kitty sent to me...
but I have only ONE left and it has MY NAME all over it.

I'll have my cup of tea now.
(I know...I'm a stingy gut...)
but I really do love you.

BJ, I am laughing about you playing with that pumpkin, now put it down before you wear it out. LOL. Gosh that is the cutest thing. I loved it next to the sign. Good buys too . Your new throw looks very soft. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
"OK, Susie, I put her down for the night...No promises about tomorrow, tho." lol

  2. Love that snow white crocheted pumpkin! So sweet. Love your throw...too!

  3. Oh I love your sweet pumpkin. What a fun post. I am finding the Dollar Stores to have some cool stuff! The throw is so pretty! Do ya'll have Big Lots. They have some cool finds too! I love the clearance section!
    About the linky deal. Have you tried doing the link and then going back to check. Because even if it says it didn't link it might have. It's an extra step. But the same thing has happened to me. I've been told it didn't work then went back to tell the hostess I couldn't post and surprise it was there. It happens to me every week at Blue Monday. Hope that's it!
    Now I am off to see that red bed!
    Have a good week.
