My Fall Andy is holding his new star on a stick. My blog friend; Vivian Neroni, as usual inspired me to make another decoration.

Close-up. It's made out of felt.

The pool table is sporting our Fall Display

The back side has to look good too!

My 3 new fun Halloween creations inspired again by: Vivian Neroni.

The new green shelf is filling up fast!

It's always fun to bring out the seasonal pillows!

and the seasonal signs!

Like to add the seasonal lights too!

Dining Room Buffet display.

Have some seasonal clothes for some of the dolls!

Enclosed back porch with clean windows for a change!

I've made garlands for every season now I think.

Cute felt pumpkin I got at a  homemade craft sale years ago!

This is my latest doll creation made on a wooden spool.

The new red shelf is getting filled also!

The seasonal quilt banners add a festive touch too, I think.

Grouped all the homemade pumpkins on the dining room table this year for a different look.

Here we are in our fall colors and celebrating our 62nd Wedding Anniversary. We feel so blessed! Sending Blessings to you all too!

Everywhere you look is pretty! She has little twinkle lights here there and everywhere!

Judy has so much fun gathering special pieces from Thrift Stores and Antique Malls to furnish her "Dream Room". (Which is her covered and partially enclosed patio right outside her kitchen door)

She has a talent for arranging precious little settings.

Special plates, and pictures.

Twinkle Lights in the fern too!

Judy has created this glamorous pillow by always checking the jewelry counters at the thrift stores.

The Doll and Pram and Pillow were all great buys purchased separately!

She collects pretty glass vases and bottles then accessories them with jewelry and glass toppers

We've found little boxes and shelves which are perfect for displaying more little treasures!

Judy is an early riser (before the sun) And this is where she enjoys her first cups of coffee!

The picture on the table is a favorite of ours. Judy and me many moons ago!

More of her colored glass pieces . The glass heart topper was a recent find!

I'm sorry this picture is a little blurred. It is her precious Judy Doll!

The mirror wall reflects the room beautifully! (Also the flash!)

Another little adorable accessorized shel right outside the kitchen door.

This picture was taken at 6:30 A.M. and she had been out there since 5:00A.M.

This room has been Judy's Dream for many years, but there were always more pressing needs that got in the way. After she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer a year + ago it became a  Priority, AND PUT A TOP OF THE LIST! The hunt for furnishings and little treasures to fill it has brought much happiness into both our lives as we go on the hunt weekly!

Looking out the door opening you see her first Precious Dream Cottage. Now used as a garden shed when the snake decided to move in! (Long gone now I'm sure)

Judy is still taking treatments every 3 weeks , and Praise The Lord no new places have appeared. So so we are gratefully and joyfully enjoying each day!  This is Judy's latest handwork project . Creating beautiful fabric heart masterpieces!

I sewed up 5 more for her before I left this weekend

She found this pretty Biscuit Tin last weekend for her embroidery thread.

Judy looks and is as beautiful as always. Here we were waiting for lunch yesterday. I hope you're putting some happiness in your days too! God Bless You.

A precious little children's book with copyright date of 1942. Each page shows the red & whire polka dot bow on a different animal.  Adorable and just $1.00!

Meet "Mr Pickles" my latest recreated stuffed animal.

Aren't these the cutest will handmade planters?

Cute Panda on the backporch.

And Puppy!

Neat old wooden box (shelf) for $5.00.

Love the old quilt tops especially when just $18.00's!

Adding this big polka dot strawberry pincushion to my collection.

These little mini animal crackers were so good!

I decided I would see how many different animals there were! 14!

My favorite was the sheep and then the dog!

I keep breaking off a branch of coleus with the hose, but they root fast and make more plants!

Our back porch is such a happy place! I'm doing a painting out here while the weather is cooler.

How's this for an anniversary selfie?  Hope things are going well in your world! Our hearts and prayers are with all those that have suffered and lost so much because of the bad weather and fires! My other
