Just dropping in...something I haven't done in quite some time! It seems that fall just blew by here...the days are still nice and warm, but the leaves all changed and fell so fast that I don't even have any pictures. Well, I have a few that are actually outdoors shots of my son for his Senior pics. He made me promise that I would not be circulating any of those online. Don't know how long I can keep that promise!! ;)

This is a recent picture of my nephew's baby girl. She is a doll. I just got a call from my daughter & the doctor says that she is ready to deliver any time now!! So, I'm doing some packing and looking forward to heading out to MI!!!

Swap Items Sent

Here's a little collage of some of the items that I sent to Laurie for the Artsy Autumn Swap.

Great Graphics

A few weeks ago I happened upon a huge rummage sale, with lots of "junk" to sift through. In a very nasty garage I found a stack of old magazines. They date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Some are from the U.S., some from Sweden & France. One is from London, England during the time of WWI. The graphics are so fun!! The ads are hilarious and the prices are amazing...$750 for a new car! The articles are of them is all about how to add fat to your diet if you need to gain weight - my, how times have changed!! :)
I'm not sure what exactly I will be doing with these, but they have already given me hours of entertainment!

Swap Items!!

I received my package from Laurie for the Artsy Autumn Swap. It was a fun swap, I love the fall colors. Look at some of the goodies I received...a glittery pumpkin, acorns, mulling spices, recipe cards...and more!!
I LOVE the earrings and the stained glass leaf.
An oak leaf...embellished and ready for a photo.
The glass leaf has found a home on my window for awhile! I love it.
Thanks so much Laurie. I appreciate every item.
