The Weekend . . .

(Isn't this card cute?)

It's Friday at last.

A day to look back and reflect over the past week and events that took place, and to look forward to the upcoming weekend. The weather should be cooling down . . . I hope it feels like Autumn soon. It needs to be cold for Halloween, don't you agree? Then we can have our first fire in the fireplace, and eat our traditional chili and cornbread! YUM! After the rain we received here a few days ago (a true BLESSING!) everything is clean and fresh again, the sky a gorgeous blue. Ahhh . . .

A quiet weekend for me. I have finally found a box for my journal :) and plan on working on that. I have a few other small projects to work on, but for the most part - free as a bird. Sigh. yay!

OK, a few BEAUTIFUL giveaways to mention. You will love these!!

Gwendolyn from A Charming Home is giving away a
beautiful bracelet she made in honor of Breast cancer awareness.

And  Dolly from From My Cherry Heart is also having an adorable giveaway.

Choose from pink or red, these punkins are just too cute.

Very fun indeed! And their blogs are just lovely, so stick around a while when you visit and go over some old posts. You'll be very happy you did.

Everyone have just a wonderful, relaxing Autumn weekend.

Hi Karen! Thank you so much for telling me about Debi's orange pumpkin :) It is very cute and I loved her pink door :)

Thank you also for letting us know about these blogs and giveaway! I am so glad it is Friday too, lol! It has been one of those weeks.

I just love that little vintage girl all ready for halloween!

It's amazing how fast you can throw a rhyme together with a few dark photos when your late, your porch is a mess, and hubby's grumpy because he's not getting time! Glad you enjoyed it, I was really in a pinch to get it done. I'm going to see if I can shock you all in Nov. and be done early with a CLASSY post.

Hi Karen:
It sounds like you have a nice relaxing weekend planned.
It is supposed to warm up here to 75* by Sunday. The nights and mornings are cold...feels like fall.
Glad you found a box for your journal.

Hi Kren!!

I feel the same way you do about fall. Sort of wanting it to get cold so I can burrow in with hot meals and a fire!

I enjoyed seeing some of the pretty entry ways and look forward to the next event.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the pictures in your blog, they are just almost comforting, love to go there and hang out...I am looking forward to much cooler weather, not to much here in ca. but some...

The DIY Show Off said...

Hi Karen - I agree it needs to be "cooler" for Halloween but not the crazy freezing temps and snow flurries that we're getting!

Thanks for the heads up on the giveaways. SO cute. Can't wait to check it out.
