Happy Halloween and Pink Saturday (not pink) from all of us Pumpkins, Super Heroes and the Big Spidey too!  Here are the Halloween Party Highlights from last weekends Halloween event,  Yes... I can't believe that gigantic Spidey was above us in that pic as I'm a non spider kinda gal. My daughter the (mother of those 3 good reasons to post a late blog) had a Halloween Party for her children, their friends, parents and a few neighbors. The grand kids wanted me to attend and dress up too, so here I am in my Grandma Good Witch Gypsy attire with lots of jewelry, Good Witch T-shirt and gypsy skirt. I went knowing I looked ridiculous and they had fun. Everyone thought I looks liked the gal from Steel Magnolias. TTMF! Today I'm linking up with Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for their Showing of anything goes Halloween.

COTTAGE COLORS BLOG PARTY "Aqua"

Joining the Cottage Colors Blog Party today to show you a bit of Aqua, yes mostly red but the Tea Pot is Aqua and I didn't have anything else available in that color. These are the Quilties I made when I was invited to join in a Quiltie Trade over at Sandra's Kayes who is a wonderful and talented quilter. You were to make 3 Quilties of your choice which was to include buttons and be 4x6 in size. These were the ones I created and sent,  a 4th one for the party hostess. It was alot of fun and  I used my Mary Englebreit fabric from my stash, I haven't quilted in a few years so this was something different, usually when I do it is a baby quilt for a gift. Don't forget to go visit all the bloggers that are showing off their vintage aqua and enjoy your visits. Have a wonderful and creative week!

Three Good Reasons for a Late Post

OK Grams, We will hold still for one Pic!
Taa-dum! I'm the Princesses! Does that mean I'm the King?
What's this??.. Gum balls or Candy for Breakfast?
Busted!
 Whoops, Who Me?
 Umm.....Should I swallow all of them now??? 
What do you mean??? Whats's  in my mouth??
Here Grams, you can have one, I share....
Three good reasons to have a late post this Saturday. Sweet Grandbabies had a sleep over last night and now they are safely home napping I'm sure. Looks like a Halloween party to me. Pizza, milk, cupcakes and candy were a big success. A Halloween children's movie, Grandmas face painting  and camp out was a big success and now Grams needs a nap too. I know there is a little pink in here on my Granddaughters shirt, so I'm linking up with the Pink Saturday crowd over at How Sweet the Sound so you can enjoy more Pinks. Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween from my "lil punkins" to yours!

Autumn Splendor

This beautiful tree in front of our home as been there since we moved in. It is a Chinese Golden Rain tree and now is blooming in all of its Autumn Splendor. A lovely sight to behold and like all things vintage I would say its branches have many stories to tell. The first day of school when our children along with other  neighborhood children would gather to have their photograph taken in that special outfit that was carefully chosen for that First day. Fresh smiling faces full of anticipation and excitement. Then there was  Halloween when the pumpkins were carefully placed here and there and ghost and skeletons would hang from the branches. Then later the winds would blow and all the leaves would fall, what fun it was to rake piles of leaves and then jump on top, only to be raked up all over again. Spring would come with new buds and branches forming  ready to have the bird houses and feeders filled and children climbing to their favorite spot. Summer would come, birthday parties held, pinatas broken, forts built,  Yes, this tree whispers of days past. Now Grandchildren visit, tea parties are held, stories shared and another generation will grace Autumn Splendor leaving more stories to tell. Joining Pink Saturday, don't forget to go visit Beverly and all the lovely pinks shared!
