I spent the weekend cleaning house and getting out some of my fall decorations. Enjoyed a nice quiet Sunday so much that I stayed in my PJ's all day. None of the animals seemed to mind as long as they got their food. Today was spent cleaning out their pens and raking some leaves. Moved all my feed storage containers into my new feed room! Nice to have everything out of the weather. For the give away winners, your package will be in the mail tomorrow morning. For all the others that entered stay tuned as I will be drawing names every few days for a lotion, candle or soap. Overlook the soaps, and stuff in my photos. I was cleaning as I was decorating so had things sitting on the buffet to put away.

Love to see pics of your cosy home.
We find the idea of decorating for the seasons a new one! I like to see how you all do it.

I know that you love autumn or fall as you call it :) - and it shows in your decorations, the kitties must love it,snuggling there.. such a nice place for a nap.. can the boys get onto the verandah? They would have a fun time nibbling on the pumpkins and trees

Peggy your house looks so nice. We must have the same decorating taste. Over the past few months I've been adding to my "primitive lifestlye" theme and I'm loving it so much.

I have a large basket of cinnamon rosehips on my table and my whole house smells SO good now.
My son made me a rustic ladder that I propped up next to my tv hutch and draped some grubby candles from it. I think I should take pics and post them to my blog. LOL

Anyway, I'm off to order some more grape berry soaps because my kitchen area smells of grape goodness every time I go in there. Alas I have almost used up all of the one bar I got from you so- MUST get more. :)

Have a great Tuesday! Kristie

Everything looks very nice. I notice your Aussie mate calls your front stoop a verandah, too. Whatever you call it; it is very inviting.

Are you jumping the season. You look ready for the Canadian Thanksgiving "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed ... to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October."

My fondest memories of Thanksgiving will always be those celebrated with American Friends in New England. I still read every year the account of the Pilgrim and Indian Thanksgiving in Bradford's Journal, it is filled with layers of meaning.

Everything looks so festive. Gee, it's still so hot up here, I can't get in the mood. Perhaps soon the weather will break! Let's hope!! xo
