Thankful Thursday October 8, 2015, more Fall table tops

Give thanks to the LORD,
 call on his name; 
make known among the nations 
what he has done. 
Psalm 105:1

Happy Thursday 
Sweet Friends,

Hope this truly finds you well, 
and hap, hap, happy.......

I am hap hap happy over our lil
bit cooler weather, and it was
fun to get outside in the cool
of the morning and repot some
 plants today.  It is also cooler on 
the porch since we are having
cooler evenings, so the porch
doesn't get as hot in the day
time, so lil darling and I were
able to be out there more
yesterday, which makes her
very happy...........

Here are just a few more Fall
table tops I thought I would
show ya.........and I will get
on with Thankful Thursday,
and I am on time too,  can
you believe

I am thankful

that hurricane joacquin went far away
from us and the east coast of the U.S.
It has been a quiet hurricane season
in which we are very grateful for.....

that we had a fun time with our newest
grand daughter Dog, Lola.  she spent
4 days with us while the kids were all
away in N.C. to see Megans family.
She is the sweetest lil dog, and just
worms her way right into your heart.

This bowl has special meaning as my Dad won
 it for my Mom at the fair when I was a baby.
I love being able to use it every Fall, it is
 what they call carnival glass.

for lil doggie diapers as Lola has a
nervous wee wee problem. We wonder
if the person who had her before may-
be mistreated her or something cause
anytime you go to reach down to pet
her or pick her up, she will sort of 
crouch down and then wee. She didn't
like them at first, and was  walking
 funny, she looked like a walking horse-
shoe, which was a riot, but once we
 got them on her tight enough, she
 seemed to not mind at
 we were very happy about that.........

that Scott, Megan and the baby and 
her family all made it home safe and
sound.  We were a bit concerned as
they had to go thru S.C. on the way
home, and S.C. had all the flooding
going on.....and sections of I-95
were closed down, but Scott said they 
didn't have to do too much detouring
 and got home in a fairly decent
 amount of time thankfully.

for a sweet surprise from hubby Tues.
night...he brought home everything
bagels and cream cheese w/ chives
from panera bakery.  We luv luv
luv these bagels and cream cheese.
We never knew Panera had them till
the last time we were at Dee's and
Jerry brought us some........and I
have been thinking about them
off and on every
So have had one every day, only

for Ann at On Sutton's Place blog,
 she really has a lovely blog, and she
makes all these free printables that
 anyone can download and use,  and
 I have used a number of them in my
seasonal decorating the past few yrs.
 If you aren't familiar with her,  you 
really should check her out.  
Just Click here
 or go to "

With poster edges affect

steamed shrimp with lemon herb
 seasoning. and that they steam it for me
 at my local grocer Publix. We had it
for din din this week, and we always
enjoy it so much.

Polar Coordinates of the above table top, I like this affect
cause it is like modern

for a new TV series that we found on
Roku that is very wholesome, and very
good, called "Heartland".  It is a great 
story about people who own a horse
 ranch. Didn't really sound all that
interesting to me, but we decided to
try watching a few and now I just
love it, and look forward to watching
each new episode.  Nice to find
something so wholesome that was
on TV for a change.
Highly recommend it!

that we got more work done in the
backyard, and started laying some
mulch,  looking better but more

for 3 nights in a row, of a good 8 hr. 
nights sleep. Amazing what a good
nights sleep can do for you!

With photocopy affect

that we got our new electric bill and
it was $100. less than last month due
to our new A/C unit we had put in and
it should be less next month, cause this
bill didn't cover the whole month.

for little children, especially our lil 
darling.........cause she is a constant
reminder to me of what a miracle she
and every other child really is........
it simply fascinates me at how they
come into the world and can't do any-
thing for themselves and within 2
 years or less they amaze you with all
 that they can do, and all they are
 continually learning to do. They are
just like lil sponges soaking up every
thing they see and hear. I so enjoy 
watching her learn and do, as I did 
with my own sweet children...........


Well, Sweet Friends's
 to another week at cozy place.

Glad you decided to stop by, and

  would love to hear some of the things
 you are thankful for.

Have a Sweet Friday and Weekend!

Love, Hugs, and

Festive FAll Blessings to Yall,

Fall Sofa Table in Family room

A Hearty Good Morning
to you, Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you feeling good
 and a bit Frisky today!

That is definitely how I am feeling,
 as I got a really good nights sleep, 
 a full 8 hours, but had to take an
ibuprophen to get it, but so happy
I did........feeling like myself again.
I have this cyclical sleep depriviation 
thing that goes on every month for
about a week or so, then I go into
a time where I sleep like the living
dead. lol  Hormones....just gotta
love them.........NOT!!   lol

Thought I would show you my
Fall Sofa table look today.
This is in the family room.....

Remember I told you in another
post I cut my table runner in pcs.,
and used one on the coffee table,
well, this is where I used the other

A cute lil joy tag hanging from my lamp
 that came from the same friend that
made the tag I used on my fireplace.
Wanta see...........Click here.

My cute pilgrim lady I got on 
clearance at Cracker Barrel a few
years ago.  She only has one problem, 
She can't stand alone, I have to lean 
her against the wall.  lol
Not a big deal tho.............

Lovely book from the same friend.....
You really should check out the lady 
that wrote this book, as she has others,
her drawings are wonderful as well
as the prose.  I love reading this every
year in the Fall..........even Brooklyn
seemed to enjoy the pics last year,
so bet she will like them even more
this year.................

I went to her website so I could give
you a link, just in case you might be
 interested in seeing her other books,
  but I see she sells her books thru 
Amazon. com now.  So just go to and type in Karla
Dornacher books, and that should
get you there. 

These cute lil candholders were 
from the same friend too.

This cross stitch welcome basket I
 have had for probaby 30+ years.
 I started making it for my kitchen
 at the time,and got half way done
 with it, and I forgot why but my
late brothers wife loves to cross
stitch so she finished it for me.
So I keep it to use in the Fall.

The Thomas Kincaide picture
was a gift from my son Scott some
years back.

Cute lil pumpkin candleholder was
 a gift from my SIL Susan a number
of years ago.  If I turn it around it
has a happy jack o lantern face
on the other side.

Gotta love all the pretty fall berries and 
picks that are available.

Gotta have some candlelight!!

The leaves on the wall, are like those
 paper doilies, and I got a good size
 stack of them at the dollar Tree store
 a few years ago.They are really quite
 intricate and pretty for being just paper.

Just taped them on the wall by rolling 
a pc. of  masking tape and affixing
 to the back of leaf and sticking to
the wall.  Been up there for weeks
and haven't had any fall off.  lol

So there you have it!


Happy you could join me today, and
hope you enjoyed your visit.

I am off to have a bagel and coffee!

See ya Thursday!

Love, Hugs and
Fun Pumpkin Blessings,

Scripture Sunday

Just so you know these trees are in North Carolina
 not Florida, but I think they just scream Fall...........

Happy Sunday Morning
Sweet Friends,

Woke up early this morning to let the cat
out, and am overjoyed with delight that
it feels like Fall has finally arrived in
central Florida, it is a cool 64 degrees,
and I can't tell you how this delights
my soul.........course, it will be going
to 80 degrees later, but feeling that
cool crisp long awaited Fall Air is just
so wonderful to me. 
 In fact it made me think of the first
 verse in Ecclesiastes chapter 3,
 for some reason,..... so decided
 to just write a quick post and share
with you my excitement, and these
verses in Ecclesiastes.


1 There is a time for everything, 

and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to

 plant and a time to uproot, 

3 a time to kill and a time to heal, 
a time to tear down and a time to build, 
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to 
mourn and a time to dance, 
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
 a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
 a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
 a time to be silent and a time to speak, 

8 a time to love and a time to hate, 

a time for war and a time for peace. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 

Have a Delightful Day,
Full of His Love,
