Harvest Bingo........Come Play

I thought it would be fun to host a Harvest Bingo Game on my Website and Blog. I am hoping that you will play along, I will send the winner a Prim Harvest Themed Prize.

It is easy to play! I will post a list of 30 words on both my Website and Blog. If you would like to play just select 18 of the words from the list, write them down to keep and email me a copy of your list.

I will pick 2 words per day from the list and post them on the Website and Blog where you can check to see if you have those words, if you do, mark them off your list. Check the words each day and if you get Bingo email me right away to let me know. The first player to email me Bingo, wins the Prize. (I will not be checking your emailed list, I'm leaving that up to you. I'll only check if there is a Bingo)

I may even post a Bonus Word now and then......

New Paint........

I thought I would share some pics of my newly painted kitchen, well it was newly painted at the end of September.....To be honest, I painted it twice! I wanted to go with a lighter shade, you know, to brighten things up. Well, I picked a shade waaayyyyy too light, it was almost white & I'm not a white kinda person. So after painting it the first day, I made another trip to Lowes that night and purchased more paint. I re-painted it the next day.

This is the green I got very tired of............

work in progress.....

end result...........

Here are some snapshots of my decorating around the kitchen....there is still lots of work to do, I don't think my kitchen will ever be completely finished....

I made new cheesecloth curtains when I finished with the painting.....

I put this peg rack up yesterday.........

Witchy Fireplace....

When I owned my Shop, I was also a florist. A friend's daughter was getting married on October 9th and they asked me to do the flowers. Here are the Bride and Attendents' bouquets.

In between the painting and flowers, hubby and I had our annual Fudge/Apple Fritter/Donut show on October 2nd & 3rd. This year I made 30 pounds of fudge, 50 pounds of Donut Dough and hubby went through 11 batches of Apple Fritter batter. We fry the donuts and fritters fresh at the festival, they are so yummy on a cool fall day.

And lastly, my little girl had her 8th Birthday on the 18th...

Now, if I can just get some inspiration to start crafting, I have a show coming up on November 20th and I don't have a thing ready. Not to mention, my website hasn't had a new listing in quite some time. I've really been in a slump lately....

In Loving Memory of Mom

February 22, 1930 - October 8, 2010

To My Mom

Your love and life lessons will always live on,
Even now that The Lord has called you home.

In my heart and in memory, forever will you stay,
It will be as if you, Mom, never went away.

You were my Mom, my advisor and my friend,
For that I will be thankful for, till the very end.

You have taught me oh so much, Mom
From the day that I was born.

I learned how to love, sew and bake
You taught me how to give and how to take.

Now that I’m a Mom and have a daughter too,
I will live everyday trying to be the Perfect Mother
Just like you

Your Daughter,

If flowers grow in Heaven Lord
Please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it everyday,
But there is an ache within my heart
That will never go away.
