Thank you, Dale!

How nice to come home and find that I won a give-away from Dale at A Country Shop! I was so excited! Thank you, Dale! Can’t wait to see my new goodies! WooWoo!

I came back from my business trip and drove right into the nor’easter! I know that there is tons of snow in central PA, but here in the big city we’re drenched in a cold, windy rain (and I admit that I love this weather, as long as I am cozy in my living room sipping a hot cup of coffee!) The trip to Harrisburg was beautiful – all of the leaves turning, the sun shining all the way up the PA turnpike. Started to get cloudy on the way back, and we’ve been getting soaked ever since. I actually had to pull out my winter jacket! What’s really weird is that it will back up to 70 by Tuesday. The wind has forced the leaves off the trees, at least the ones that have turned into those great reds, yellows, and golds.

Last nite, some friends and I went to see the Fab Faux again and wow, it was a monsoon. I was glad to get home safe and sound from the concert. A little dangerous driving, between the flooding and the wet leaves. Some weird weather here in the northeast! I actually had to pull out my winter pea coat—in October! By Thursday, we’ll be back up to 70 again!!

I had another re-paint itch and redid my hutch (again). Since I had some Colonial Red left, I repainted my bedroom desk as well.

Still can’t figure out what to do with my aunt’s chair. I can’t find a slipcover – it doesn’t have armrests, so I think no one makes slipcovers for this type of chair. I might just leave it as is – and change out the pillow cases every so often with some homespun or fabric.

So, I have been thinking about my ABC’s of what I love about Fall. It’s taking me a while, so I’ll post them this week. I love reading what you have all done with these!
It’s a cold gloomy Sunday, so I think I am ready for a hot cup of coffee and then a nap! Hope your weekend is a restful one!


  1. Love the red makeovers of course!! YUp - they are perfect. We had snow here. Didn't accumulate on the roads so it looked kind of pretty! But it is tooooo early. I want my fall - CRISP - not wet!!

    Have a great week!

  2. Love it all Terry...the sun is shining here today after rain, rain and more rain!!!

    Thanks for posting the link to The Country Shop they have alot of neat things:)
