I didn't think Fall could be as busy as Summer--but I was wrong! I've had company from MI this past week and it has kept me hopping. More company is coming on the 27th and I will have a house full for 16 days. Pray for me! (smile)

It has been fun but busy. We took another trip to Boone and Bowing Rock, NC to show my sister the mountains. While shopping in a little country drug store, my hubby spotted some LARGE pumpkins on display at the pharmacy counter. They were up on a high counter and were marked for display only. My hubs said to the pharmacist, "Would you be interested in selling those pumpkins?" My sister and I hurried away before they thought we were all illiterate.

We were in another part of the store when hubs comes over and says the pharmacist is calling the owner to see if he will sell the pumpkins. I said "You're kidding." The rest is history. Long story short--we walked out of there with the LARGE pumpkins. My sister bought half and we bought half. She sent hers home by UPS. You should have seen the look on the clerks face. (smile)

Well, with no more room in the car we headed home.

This was the entertainment center pre-pumpkins.

This is the top now. What do you think? Better???

A few Fall pics and cornucopia finish off the top.

Thanks for stopping and for all your sweet comments.

Enjoy your weekend

Oh I just love this. So glad they sold the pumpkins to your hubby because they are perfect in your display. He has an eye for home decor for sure.

How grand that you had your sister to visit. I know you had a great time shopping and visiting. Sounds like you have a busy month ahead with guests, but what fun this time of year.

I loved seeing your front door too. So inviting!!
It is always an inspiration to visit you.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
