FALL is upon us already!

HELLO EVERYONE! I am sure I have lost my audience by now, but man has life been hard, joyful,
tough, busy and amazing! Where have the years gone?? My son informed my not too long ago that I am
really slipping when it comes to posting on my blog and he is so right! I've been averaging about once
a year for the past couple years or so. I am going to try and do better , but no promises because you know...
LIFE HAPPENS and you better live it while you can! I know I am trying my best to do that.


The hubby and I were in the RTE 127 sale in August with his sister and husband and that is where I scored
this wheelbarrow. The people in the tent right beside ours GAVE it to me because on part of the frame is
rusted through, but it still works for yard art!!
I LOVE IT! Best bargain of the whole sale along with a chippy , white bench for $1. (from the same
people) There are such kind souls in this world today amidst all the yuck if we just open our eyes
and look.

My amazing Sweet Autumn Clematis! I have two of these. One here on my fence and one on the front porch
on a trellis! I love them and I need to get more!





Our granddaughter Annika. I can't believe she is in 7th grade this year. They moved to California
(insert sobbing here) in February and they flew home last weekend so we had a few hours to spend
with them before they flew right back. We had fun in the park and I snapped a few photos with my
actual camera instead of my phone. She sure is a beauty and growing up fast!

Annika and little Liam! Remember our rainbow grand after we lost Eden to stillbirth? This is him!
Isn't he the cutest??!! Adorable! He will be two years old in November. DOES.NOT.SEEM.POSSIBLE!

I love this photo. My son, his daughter Annika and my hubby. Something must have been very funny. lol

Sweet Ainsley and Liam sliding in the park. The visit was way too short, but I am so
very thankful that we got to see them! Six months is a long time to be apart from those
you love for sure!

This post is so random! Ha! My geraniums from my gardens this year were so pretty.


More flowers.  I can do pretty good growing flowers outside, but not inside AT.ALL. 

We found a field of sunflowers one day close by and I had to snap some photos. They are so pretty and
are the epitome of fall!



Well, here we are at the end already! I just picked random pics to post and you got quite a mixture, but it is our
life in real time. God is good and we are so loved by Him!! Always remember that!!

Until next time which is hopefully sooner than later,

FREE Canvas print GIVEAWAY!


When Sarah from Canvas Factory contacted me about having a giveaway on my blog, I
was quick to say yes. I love canvas prints and I am betting that you do also.  I also received a free
 print of my choosing and I chose a photo of our beautiful little rainbow baby grandson Liam to be
printed on a wrap around canvas. 


Isn't he just the sweetest? I swiped this photo from his mommy's facebook page and had it made
into this canvas piece and I love it. I moved it here and there in the house before I finally chose
to hang it in the living room for now. {first photo}


I am so sorry the quality isn't better in my pics, but rest assured that the quality
of the canvas is spot on. These photos were shot with my I phone and
obviously I needed to use  my camera, but I have put this off for far too long, so
it is what it is.

I still absolutely love the photo and the Canvas Factory did a great
job! It was also shipped out pretty fast and I highly recommend them for any
of your photography needs for that special piece.  


Now, for the fun part. I get to GIVE ONE AWAY!! Woo hoo!!

To be entered in the drawing , please leave me a comment telling me what picture
you would choose to have printed. A family member? A beloved pet? A nature scene? 
(or just comment on anything lol)
I believe the sky is the limit, but whatever the winner chooses I am sure it will be
awesome.



This giveaway will run for a week and I will choose a winner on January 15.
(Please note that this giveaway is for US residents only)

Please share this on facebook or other social media to help get the word out.

In other news...My oldest son informed me that I have really been slacking on my blog posts
and he is so right!Good grief! I still have a SPRING header up from last year!
I am so embarrassed. It has been almost a YEAR since I last posted. I hope to remedy
that this year and post more frequent and with better photos...hopefully.

Thank you and blessings,
