Hello all.  I am so excited that my daughter is home.  My brother is so sweet..He went and picked her up from Wright State yesterday and brought her home.  He totally surprised me!!  I was supposed to get her today.  We went shopping and ran some errands today and now we are sitting down to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving..

Saturday we are going to Cleveland to go on the tour of the house from A Christmas Story.  I have to say i have never watched the movie myself.  I have it now and we are going to watch it tomorrow before we go.  I didn't realize what a tradition it was for alot of people to watch it every year.

Pics of my kitchen

Monday is it over yet

I planned on having a great day today..I just finished my rotation on the 3rd shift..well i call it 3rd shift but its actually 7pm to 8am.. My plan was to sleep today for a few hours and get up and get moving.  I am off until Friday so i was so excited.  Well i slept until almost 3pm and wasted half my day. 

So tonight I decided to take some pics of my home and post up here and don't  you know my camera is not in my drawer where i keep it.  I have searched high and low for it for the last 2 hours.  I give up.  I have carried off somewhere and have no idea where i put it.  So no pics tonight.

If anyone has any silly stories of misplacing something and where you ended up finding it please share..maybe it will help my find my

Hope everyone is having a great night and hopefully tomorrow (if i can find the camera) i will post some pictures.

What a busy last few days i have had.  I worked the last 4 nights and finished up this morning came home and got a few hours of sleep and off to Columbus I went to get my daughter from college to come home for the weekend.  I am so excited to have her home.

We have a busy day ahead of us tomorrow.  We are going to hanoverton to a little festival at one of my favorite stores Days Gone By  It has all kinds of great primitives handmade and old. 

Then off to Canton where the mall is.  (The only bad thing about living in the country is you have to drive and hour to get to the mall).  Off to the movies and then home and if it doesn't rain to the fair. 

Sunday is all about the Steelers in my house!!  I have taken some pics that i need to get on my computer to post on here of some of the goodies i found last weekend so i will get them up this weekend as well.  Hope you all have a great weekend!!

a few fall displays

I have taken a few pics of some pumpkin displays in my living room..  Fall is absolutely my favorite time of the year..I love all the colors and the weather is wonderful..

We are leaving in a few hours for a weekend away to visit my mom and go camping for the weekend. I am gonna relax and have fun.  This will be the first time in a long time since i have done that. 

Thanks for looking at my pics!! I will be back on Sunday afternoon!!  Everyone have a great weekend!!

These are my pumpkins that i make.  I have found a few trunks and opened the top one and filled it up with white, black and ornage pumpkins all different sizes.  I have added some a ornage pip berry garland in it and made a sign that reads pumpkin patch that i painted on a piece of old barn wood..  This display sits under by my steps.

I found these white terra cotta pumpkins at a show last year.  I just love love love white pumpkins!!

Here is another display that is in my living room.  I have a huge ol wooden dough bowl that i have on my sofa table.  I have it over filled with my pumpkins that i make.  I have added a fall colored berrie garland and in this picture i have put some vintage chenille pumpkins in the display. 

Thanks again for taking a look at a few of my fall displays.  I will post a few more when i get back this weekend..

How fun is this

I work overnights and each day i wake up about 2 or 3 and can't wait to get on here.  This blogging is addicting..  I have learned so much in the last 3 days of my blogging.  I want to thank Kate for getting me started on here.

 I am off the next 4 days and gonna get some pictures up here of our primitive home.  My husband and I remodeled our home back in the spring and it turned out just wonderful.  Would love to share some of our decorating with you all. 

Thanks again for all the kind words on my handmade primitives that i have made and the encouraging words on getting my page going.

My Give away

I was so excited to see that i already have 4 followers.  I will eventually get the hang of this.  I told a few friends at work how i spent 3 hours getting as far on this page as i did. they thought it was alittle funny that i didn't know how to do this. 

I wanted to post that i will be having my hubby pick the winners name on the pumpkins on Monday.  I will put all the name of my followers in a bowl.  I will notify the winner and get your addy and mail it out so you can have them for you decorations for fall. 

If you check out my etsy page which is oldgoatprims you will see that i also have black and white pumpkins.  the winner can pick what colore pumpkins you want or just the orange its up to the winner.

Good luck!!
