Shopping and winnings!

Hello friends!! Hope your week is off to a good start for you all!

I Went and visited my fav prim shop again this past Saturday, The Whistle Stop. I really need to stay away from this shop but in reality, I don't think that will!! I also think that I need to ask the owner, Laurie, if I could bring my camera next time and take some picture's of this place so you all can see how neat of a shop this is. Maybe she will read my blog and answer me. Her "Deck the Holiday" open house is November 4th, 5th and 6th and I am soooo looking forward to that. I need to start saving my money! Anyway, the following pictures show what I bought this time around.

I had the little flicker candle already and thought it looked great in this birdcage type thingy. I don't know what they are!


Also got that stool there also.

I am late in posting these pic's of recent giveaways that I have won.
The first one was a giveaway by Crafty Stitchers. I love it all, thanks so much!!


The 2nd one that I won was from Down Willow Lane. Lucy and her kitty came all the way from overseas! They are both so cute and I love them. Thanks again so much!!


I have gotten quite a bit of cross-stitching done but hopefully today I will get them sewn together and stuffed.

My grandson was in town this weekend to spend some time with his grandpa from Missouri. They both stayed at my son's house. Hubby and I went over there Saturday for the football game and we had a barbeque before the game. Go Huskers!! LOL!!

Anyway, that's it for this time. It's been chilly here in the mornings and I'm not liking it any. Have had to put the electric blanket back on the bed and I have been turning it on at night. No...I'm not looking forward to the cold weather at all! Which also reminds me....I got our bedroom all painted but I have nothing hanging on the walls yet so I haven't taken any pics of the room yet. Will get to that soon, hopefully!!

Bye friends and have a great week!!

Hi Brenda,
Yes, you may take pic's anytime! Just make sure the ol' stop is lookin' good! ha!! Thanks for bragging up the shop! I appreciate any PR we can get! Even after 17 years we still need the good ol' word of mouth advertising! We are not as prim as some shops but, usually all tastes can find something in our little bit of a country store! Little being the key word! Looks like you've been a lucky girl, winning great gifts on giveaways!
Oh, love the candle in the ... not sure what they are called either... wire cloche maybe. ???
See ya soon!
I had the day off today and Christmas projects have officially began! :)

Brenda I am in love with your new purchases... I LOVE that wire cloche... what a great idea to put the light in there, looks so perfectly prim. I can't wait to see the pics of the shop, from here though all I can do is

Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by... I always appreciate your kind comments.

Hugs, Deb

Bittersweet garland... love it! I have a little bit of the real stuff. My sister brings it to me and she said it wasn't out there like it usually is. =[ I have a real hard time finding the fake stuff that looks real, but you did good, girl! That garland looks real! Love that chocolate mold too. I am always on the lookout for those and still haven't found any that aren't sky high. I love everything you got from that store. I sure wish I was closer to it!

What wonderful winnings your received! I especially love that Simplify wall-hanging.

It's been a little chilly here in the early mornings and late nights too. I love a crispness in the air while I snuggle down into my bed and wrap myself in my blanket. I sleep so much better that way. I enjoyed stopping by and catching up!


Hi, I have a blogging award for you, please stop by and receive it. Thanks.
