BABY SILAS IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After being in labor for 23 1/2 hours the Drs. finally decided for a C-section. Not what we were all expecting but they were running out of time.  One can only be in labor for 24 hours, I've learned.
Silas  was born on Sept 23rd late night. We were all thrilled. Liz was finally out of pain, the poor love and Deg was exhausted. But it was all worth it. He is gorgeous and huge but tiny. lol I went to see him again today and the swelling in his face went down and OMG I just love this little guy. What fun he is bringing our lives already.

He is so precious.

       He was born with a huge bruise on his little forehead because he was waiting to be born and in the same spot for so long.
                     Nicole was squeezing him to much......just saying.
 Don't get any ideas Missy. lol This little one is going to have so many parents lol.
Can you tell how excited I am. What a true blessing. God has been so good to us and I thank him for that. I never imagined having such a wonderful family.
Just wanted to share:)

Happy Fall everyone!!!!!!
I just started adding some fall to our barn and out in the yard. 
Bonfires, toasted marshmallows, the most amazing colors we could imagine overhead.
Crisp clean air, comfy sweaters, pumpkin pie, hot cocoa, extra blankets to snuggle up in, hay rides, apple picking , apple pie, camping out in the fresh air listening to the crickets looking up at clear dark sky's filled with thousands of white starts, our favorite scarves, pretty warmer jackets, pull out those great boots, ........I can go on and on but I think that you are ready now:)

                                    Lots of blingy pumpkins this year.

                     Some coral and pink roses to brighten up the library. Sorry about that shadow. I need to get back to fixing my photos before I post them. Does anyone know of a good site I can do that with?
Pumpkin velvet pillow I put together for the season with millinery flowers and lace:)
 I love white pumpkins. What's not to love right? I found this fabulous wallpapered  covered wooden box at the market. It is perfect for my living room.
 I'm always talkin' suitcases! Look here is another idea for one. Fill it with holiday fun for a sweet display.
                         All of my dress forms get witch hats lol. I have to finish the others.

                               Such a cool pumpkin, don't you think?
                                             Succulents and mini boos.
                                I am going to fill that bird bath with pumpkins and gourdes.  I know the squirrels will love me as they did last year.
                            You know how much I love my statues:)
                                                        Cabbage head
                        Oh if I could get just one more thing on this poor wagon lol Still, it looks pretty when I drive up the driveway on my way home from work at night.

 Do you think I over did it????Hahahahahah of course you do!!!! Happy oh happy am I:)


                              Fergie is happy with the porch too. She is always by my side and I love it!!!

One more thing. Look at what Nicole found on the web put out by CBS. It was written last year and we never knew it until just a week ago. Thank you!!! We are humbled and honored:) AND THRILLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

'Till next time.................
Have a beautiful week.

Hello everyone,
September is the end of Summer and the last week of the Brimfield Antique show.  I go to every show and this the first time it has been a very hot September show! Friday was girls day for us, Robin, Gretchen, Liz and Balcus sp(?) were my partners in crime. We had a mission of finding the perfect treasures to bring back. We had so much fun laughing from the time  we left my house until we got the time we got home. We all search for different things so we were scattered for some of the time but kept meeting up. I wanted to share some of the cool things that I saw this year.

                                              Industrial is always big at this show.
                                                                 So pretty.
                                           Love everything in this photo.
   Nautical. Now that we have a little lake cottage I look at the water decorations.

                                                    Cool industrial lights. In my kitchen I use just the shade on my lights and get the same look as the green ones.
                               Tuesday Don and I went to the show. He met a long lost friend.

 OK this is so important!!!!! If you  are ever lucky enough to go to the show you have got to have a pilgrim sandwich.  It is the most devine sandwich you will ever have.
                                   Brought home some pretty clothes home for the shop.

                                                 I love this dealor's yearly set up
 Inside this tent is the most gorgeous French fabric, I couldn't afford any of it but I can look at the photos. Seriously why are prices so crazy in some booths? I do know that people come from all over the world to shop here.
                                               I wish you could see inside! It's is magical if you love fabric like I do.
                                              Another pretty booth with lots of pink and Florentine.

                            We had no er ...drama about the heat. Oh, hi Gretchen.
                      I really wanted one of these fabulous bins but for $200.00 wasn't going to happen.

                                           I would love a yard full of this gorgeousness!!!!!
 This is Linda. She is an awesome sewer and make the most beautiful bags, pillows, lampshades.............very talented lady. Don't stand still, she'll put a millinery flower on you:)

                         These chairs were funky and comfy. Each slot was painted a different color.
                                                                    Great display
                                           the stool.


                        Love the color and these chairs. so pretty.
 This is a very special booth. Why you ask? Well first of all it is gorgeous! BUT It is an IRISH BOOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of the booths do the French thing but this lovely lady went with her own roots and did Irish and I just love it. Her booth is called By the Olde Garden Gate from Salem NH.
                                       Look at how great its put together. 
 This booth is from Reclaimed Charm and I fell in love all over
 Irish booth again.

                                                            Reclaimed Charm
                                                  More Reclaimed Charm
                              Don waiting for me:) Off to eat a turkey sandwich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So there is a little part of my shopping day with my friends.( I brought back a bunch of treasures for the shop. )  Love getting together with all of them. Just love them. They are all so different and so  much fun to be around. A great day of friends, shopping, laughing and eating. Now that's livin'!

'Till next time.................................................
Have a beautiful day:)
