Sorry for not getting back here last night - dang this girl was tired :). We had a wonderful weekend with the kids and they did a few chores for their Dad - who ended up being a pretty sick boy. I'll spare the details - but I think he's finally starting to feel better. The 3rd med - yes I said 3rd med and an inhaler has helped bring back an appetite finally and some energy. Mr. Farmhouse rarely gets sick - and this one took him down hard. I can tell he's "turned the torner" as Mother Tother says because he's getting cranky that it's taking so long to snap back lol. I'm taking that as a good sign.
Ms Ellie gave us lots of chuckles and love this weekend - my goodness she is a blessing. It drove Grandpa wild to have to stay away from her. Earlier this spring at an antique mall I found a matching set of these adorable children's vintage lawn chairs. I decided that each summer we will take a picture of her in the chair on the same weekend - so this weekend we got it done. It will be fun to see the change each year on Labor Day just how much she's grown
This little peanut should be moving fast any day now. She is up on all fours, rocking back and forth and even moving one little chubby knee - she just can't put it all together yet. Be still my heart.
We had a big rainstorm come in on Saturday late afternoon that brought some much needed rain and glorious cool temps. It got pretty dark pretty fast and it was wonderful lol.
Yesterday afternoon I popped on over to my friend Joanie's house for a little afternoon stitching - it was wonderful and I really needed a little down time. We sat down in her wonderful sewing room with a beautiful view of the lake and chatted all afternoon. Her hubby brought us down a cup of coffee and even included a couple of cookies
Hello - isn't that a pretty little tray he put together - I was totally impressed - napkins and all lol. She had these sweet little woolie goodies sitting next to her stitching chair - of course I love that little fall one. The other one is for her granddaughter.
After our coffee we then had to toast another wonderful summer at the lake. Thanks Joanie for a great afternoon - we totally lost track of time.
I couldn't stand it today and had to start decorating for the autumn season. Here's a snippet from above one of my kitchen cupboards
This is in the entryway
Thank you all for leaving a comment for the giveaway. I loved loved loved reading them all. I'm glad I didn't have to pick one based on the comment - they were all terrific and I can tell your love of the season just like me. Beautiful descriptions of my favorite time of the year. I asked Mr. Farmhouse to pick a number and he asked for the total number of comments - there were 158 - so he divided it in half and picked the number 79 - which is Lori Porter. Lori I will email you for your mailing address. This weekend I will be posting some good deals on kits and fat quarter packs on my Etsy site that I've decided I will never get made or use and need to share them with others. So hop on over there later Saturday or Sunday and see if anything snaps your socks - the prices will be great :). The link to my Etsy is on the sidebar.
Until Next Time
