My Fall Mantle: A La Natural

This fall I decided to skip the traditional fall colors and decorate with more natural tones. I love the soft creams and browns and the textures of the ghords, burlap pumpkins and vines that I used.A view down the mantle
I purchased the burlap pumpkins at the Hico Market last weekend and my friend Carol gave me the wonderful ghords from her garage sale stash!!
My wise old owl stands beside a vintage Thanksgiving postcard I found in a box of treasures at another garage sale.
Love the old mirror leaning on the wall.
One of my favorite little statues.

And my sweet angel that stands guard over it all! She is definitely one of my favorite things in my home. As sweet as she is, I know she cannot compare to what the Lord has in store for us with His angels in Heaven. I can't wait to see them face to face. What a glorious day that will be!!!

Garage Sale Time!!!

I know, I'm crazy, but Carol and I are having a BIG GARAGE SALE this weekend. When we returned from Hico, we went to our booths on Monday and totally revamped our areas. Carol closed her large space and I gave her my little space, Bunnytrails 1. I kept Bunnytrails 2 and filled it with goodies I had left from Hico. Well, we decided to part with a LOT of things that we have had for a while. So once again, let the fun begin!!!!!! The sale will be Saturday at Carol's home, 2626 Meadow Lake Drive, in Fairway Oaks. I imagine it will start around 8:00 a.m. Hope to see you there! There really is some GOOD STUFF!!!!!!!

Cute! Cute! Cute!

For many reasons, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays, BUT I do love seeing the children dressed up and excited about their treats! Having said that, the porch was ready, the pumpkin was lit, and I helped out Walgreens' sales by purchasing a lot of candy!!! About the time I had everything ready,
I look up and see this coming down the street! Kids and parents filled this flatbed truck. It was so cute!
What a clever way to trick or treat. Everyone of them had kind words and "thank yous" as they left my front porch.
As it got a little darker, this table, complete with place settings with spaghetti and meatballs , showed up at my door. Is that not priceless or what??? The trick or treaters kept coming and coming, until all of the candy was gone and I was scrambling to find goodies in the pantry.
This is all I could come up with but it was appreciated by a cute little goblin! However, the cutest of the evening was my new little neighbor who came to my side patio earlier in the evening.
 I asked him if I could take his picture and he was quite cooperative!
He posed....
and he posed...........
and he posed some more!! What a precious little guy.
