Happy All Saint's Day! I don't know that much about this particular holiday. My Mother told me about it as a child so I do know it falls on every November 1st! You can read more about it here. There's also a 2009 movie with the same name that I shall probably never see and hadn't heard of until I Googled "All Saint's Day" and found a bunch of links leading to the trailer.
In honor of it being Fall and all I thought I'd finally start on my Autumnal decorating! So many of you have shown your inspiring fall decor! I am getting off to a rather slow start. I started with grabbing what was closest to me...my tatting! I also had a ceramic pumpkin hidden close by. The autumn wreaths and goodies are in the storage closet so it may be closer to Thanksgiving when I have those out, LOL!
Let me show you my start on the fall decor!
Here are my tatted fall leaves around
the pumpkin! They are on my
blog post about the tatted fall leaves
The pumpkin holds a candle!
Speaking of deliciousness I have received
3 tasty tidbits of awards from
the lovely Bella Sinclair of
Bella Sinclair Doodlespot!
The 1st award is the
created by Ces!
The Deborah Award was created to honor a dear sisterfriend who is forever blowing kisses – “poet, friend, not just a mother but a soldier’s mother, too. Oh, the sleepless nights, the anxiety and worries, yet she is perpetually pleasant and cheerful, kind and gentle, diplomatic and tactful. She exudes courage, hope, and faith."
The Arija award was created to honor another sisterfriend: “a thinking, seeing, feeling, loving person who celebrates life every day. She is an artist, a photographer, a fascinating woman with great sense of humor, wise and thoughtful blogger and a loving and caring friend."
The friendship award!
Kathi of Beautiful Mini Blessings.
Kathi creates incredible miniatures and is in the process of renovating a dollhouse as masterfully as any craftsman-carpenter on This Old House.
Thank you, Bella!
I shall bestow these lovely gifts
with some friends who bless my life!
...and of course there are many more but those
are the ones foremost on my mind at the moment.
To quote Bella Sinclair herself
in the comments of my last blog post:
"...I have a few awards for you. No pressure, no obligation. Just my appreciation for you. :)"
Good one, Bella! I like that!
I think I'm going to borrow that phrasing when
I notify these sweet ladies of their awards!
Oh, do say hello! I love it when you do that! I really do!
