A Few Things To Share

Another rainy Fall day here today. Great day to take it easy and watch some football. I haven't posted for a little while because we had a visitor from a "little" virus named H1N1. :( Everyone but me has or had it. Some are on the mend and some are still fighting the cough that seems to linger forever. I am crossing my fingers that I can continue to stay healthy. Do you hear that sound??....that is me knocking on wood.
I purchased a Halloween pinkeep from Lisa. I ordered it and two days later it was in my mailbox! Thanks Lisa, I love it and I was SO excited that I could get it before are speedy!
I hung it off of one of my cutting boards~

I also thought I would share my new dishes! I am so excited to use these for Thanksgiving and Christmas! They are a great neutral color called Mocha. By now I think you all know how much I love browns, reds, mustards, black...all the rich, dark colors are my favorite.

Here are my heirloom pumpkins! Aren't they great?! I had visions of putting these into my wooden wheelbarrow with some straw, berries, gourds etc. But with the family being sick and it being so wet and rainy out that hasn't happened. Maybe before Thanksgiving I will get them displayed. But for now here they are all wet and drippy!

I love to imagine these displayed on a huge farmhouse table with real bittersweet, leaves and candles running all down the table.

That is about it for today. I hope you are all doing well and staying away from all of the nasty germs that are floating around out there. My best friends right now are...... Hand Sanitizer, Clorox Wipes, get the picture! Until next time, take care. ~Sarah~


  1. oh, WOW!...I'm glad everyone is going ok...Not a visitor you want!!!...I love your goodies and I really like your dishes...What kind are they??~~hugs,Jen

  2. Well, I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon and I pray that you stay safe from those germs. I love those pumpkins... very neat!!

  3. Sorry to hear you are battling this flu, I hope you stay well! Love your pinkeep...looks good hanging on your cutting board and your dishes are awesome, I'm sure your table will look great setup for the holidays.
    I have to tell you the heirloom pumpkins are one of my favorites too...aren't they cool! Your display sounds good for your wheelbarrow, hope you can get it done and post some pictures.
    Take care,

  4. Those dishes are great...where did you buy them?
    I can imagine those pumpkins the same way you described them...prim perfection!
    Stay healthy!

  5. Isn't this flu something? I hope you stay well -- I'm so neurotic that I carry that hand sanitizer with me everywhere, since there is no vaccine available yet! Hope everyone feels better real soon!

  6. Sarah I know what you are going through, my daughter has the H1N1 and your new best friends are mine as well!! I hope your family gets well quickly and that you stay healthy!!~Wendy

  7. WOW...I really hope your family gets better real soon. And I pray that you don't get it. There is so much talk about it on the internet, TV, newspapers and even the schools. Here in Canada the Gov't they approved it this week for everyone to receive the vaccination for free. It is so scarry I find and makes us all a bit paronoid.

    I really LOVE your pinkeep. Lisa makes wonderful things :)

    I also own the same dishes. They are not as prim as I would wish but boy are they good to have for big meals. They hold ALOT of food :)

    Have a great rest of the weekend.


  8. I hope you don't get sick and everyone continues to get better. I am hoping we make it through the flu season flu free. I love your new pin keep and dishes.


  9. Oh, I sure hope everyone is feeling better very soon, Sarah...I hope you stay well, and don't get it now.
    Love your new dishes ;) and Lisa's pinkeep is always, she does wonderful work!

    Take Care!

  10. What great pumpkins! Love the shaped and colors!!

    Lisa does great work and it looks perfect where you hung it.

    I hope you are still healthy and everyone else is on the mend.


Thank you so much for visiting & for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate and enjoy each & every one! ~Sarah~
