More Fall/Pumpkin goodies!

Hello prim friends and visitors! It's fun to be able to post again and share more Fall goodies with you.

I am truly blessed to be the recipient of surprise gifts from my sweetest of prim friends, Shazy of Country Prims blog. Shazy is blessed with the knack of turning her hand to any craft and doing a first class job! All those little details make a difference, and with Shazy work that is so true!

This wool pillow is just gorgeous with the colours of the leaves and pumpkin so lovely!This is what I mean about the little details - isn't this little rusty acorn on the pin just so sweet?
But what about this for a prize-winning pumpkin? It is quite a size and perfectly formed~ sorry the pic doesn't do the real colour of the flannel justice- it's a deeper orange.
I now have better motivation for getting some more fall decorating done around here.
I have been busy with various things so as far as crafting this is the sum total of it thus far~
Before I go, I wanted to update you on a prayer request I wrote about back in June.
New mother Karen had just been diagnosed with malignant melanoma and faced surgery and severe chemo but I truly believe God heard and answered prayer for her. After surgery to remove the tumor, she was given a complete body scan and praise the Lord the cancer had not spread to her lymph glands meaning she does not have to undergo the chemo though her situation is constantly under review. She is doing well as is her little boy. Thank you so much for praying.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
So glad to have you visit,


  1. Hi Christine, so glad to hear your friend is doing better. I pray God continues to bless her with wellness.
    Love the pillow and the pumpkins. Noticed you asked about entering the giveaway. I had intended to see what it cost to ship to the UK and it all totally slipped my mind. One girl offered to pay the shipping if she won, how bout I pay what it would cost to ship here in the US and anyone outside US pay the difference in shipping if it is way more? Does that sound fair? I hate not to include everyone, and you are a loyal follower so certainly want to include you. I'll try to check on the shipping and see what it might be. It will be pretty light since fabric items don't weigh much, that should help. 8-)
    Have a great day!!

  2. Praise the Lord on the good report on your friend Christine. I will continue to lift her up in prayer.
    I love your new pillow and pumpkins. Fall is such a beautiful time of year and your new additions fit in perfectly with your decorating for the season.
    Have a blessed day,
    Hugs, ~AMY~
