Good chilly, happy Wednesday Morning to you
Friends & Folk!

things are coming along nicely, 
...getting my things finished for the show Saturday ~

my stitching-spot in the keeping room is where I've been planted as-of-late…
from here I get to enjoy old movies on the flat screen (if I choose)
but I usually have music playing and am entertained 
by the constant chattering of Peaches our parrot, and Barbara our parakeet who both reside in the back of this room….

here is a view from my seat ~

the wood stove is cleaned out & ready for her first puff of smoke…
I love the days when my wood stove is on, but hate cleaning all of the black soot/dust she makes.
soon I will begin decorating this old farmhouse for Olde Hallowe'en!!

 here's another shot…

photo bomb!!!!!
oh Iggy, you are most-handsome...

 I am super excited for our show this year
(I'm always excited for this show)
but, in particular
I will be meeting lots of my on-line & far-away friends
 that will be visiting here with us on Saturday!
(I'm actually a bit nervous…you see, I am a nut & hopefully I won't scare any of you away!)

I'm excited to see my sister & her hubby again ~ 
they will be here offering their wares ~ benches, birdhouses, chalkware and trees…

AND it's always good to see my beloved vendor/friends again ~
