Halloween Decor....ahhhh......FALL is here!'s my favorite time of year and my favorite holiday! Here's a little Halloween "flavor" from the way look at the plant on the table. It is one of my Christmas cactuses and it is in FULL BLOOM! I think it felt pressured since it was on the table with my Halloween decorations...plants can be VERY competitive you know.
Did you notice my "elegant" window treatment? Tension rods with pillowcases held on with clip clothespins! HA! HA! Farmgirls are inventive for sure! I have 13 windows on that porch and it will be awhile before I get ALL that material for curtains so that's my solution for privacy in the meantime. The rest of the windows have ALL different "curtains" from pillowcases to tableclothes to dresser scarves! It is a VERY interesting room!

Fall & FAVS!!!!!

Sorry I haven't posted here in a few days...I have an elderly cat that is "fading" and I had to take her to the vet, give her meds and coax her on and off all day to eat and drink. But she is making a comeback! It won't be forever I'm sure but she is not suffering and I try to make her as comfortable as possible. Her name is Patches and I got her from a shelter years ago and the vet and I figured she is anywhere from 15 to 18 years old. She sleeps with me EVERY night and is THE BEST cat I have ever had. When the time comes, I will miss her VERY much!
I can't include Patches on the blog without including "my faithful companion" Serenity...Nitty for short, who is my bestest friend. She is smart, brave, friendly and a beauty inside and out.
Here are some pictures of my flowers..mums on the bench and a gorgeous Trumpet plant in full bloom in my back yard (a first year plant I might add).
