Miscellaneous Monday

I won a Giveaway! Dianne at http://diadsie.wordpress.com/ had a drawing and I won. I couldn't wait for the package to arrive. It was like a birthday or Christmas. Here's a pic of what was inside. She sent some cute Fall pumpkins, a candle in a tin, salt water taffy, a Fall place mat, some really pretty floral prints and an adorable little elephant all decked out for Fall.
Thanks Dianne! It was a busy Sat. getting all the Fall decor down from storage. Here's a couple of pics of the "mess". I'll be posting some after pics in the near future.
I buy colored tubs to reflect the seasons so I know how to find things. There are 3 for Fall but I still have things in boxes (below).


Sorting some things out on the counter.



We also got to see our little guy and his Mom (our daughter). It's always fun when he's around. He loves his Papa.
In a few short weeks his little sister is due to arrive and we can't wait to meet her.

I hope you have a good productive week!

Happy Fall~almost! Your daughter and grandson are two beauties! I know you are very proud of them.

I do the same with my decorations and have them all in storage in the attic. I told DH they needed to come down shortly and he didn't seem to excited since it is still pretty hot here. LOL!! In the end, they will all be brought down and gone through. I can so relate to your pictures.
Can't wait to see your decorating with all the goodies.
Nice to see you today.
hugs, Celestina

Your grandson is so cute! Your daughter is beautiful. I bet you are excited to meet your new grand-daughter. You are a step ahead of me with your fall decorating. I do store mine exactly like you do in those colored tubs on shelves. I better get busy decorating soon.
Hugs, Terrie

Good idea to color code your boxes!

What a beautiful daughter and grandson you have!
You are inspiring me to think about making a mess with my fall decor. :) I will probably wait a few days as it is still to hot here in Phoenix.

Wow, you received a bunch of cute fall decorations! I am like you, I am in the process of digging out all my Fall decor out of rubbermaid boxes, a bit overwellming LOL

Dianne said...

Ah, how sweet of you to show what I sent you. I'm glad you enjoyed receiving it. I hope you can come to s.e Penna someday to see Longwood Gardens and maybe me! : )

Your daughter and grandson are so photogenic!
