No Rest for the Weary!

I feel so bad I haven't posted in such a long time. I have tried my best to keep up with my blog list and I HAVE been visiting you all. It has been a wonderfully crazy and hectic three months so far as ornie sells. I have been truly blessed and if any of you reading this post have purchased any of my ornies, I truly appreciate it.

It hasn't been all work and no play, though! I have been hitting the craft shows around here. Living in a large metropolitan area, we have a ton of shows each weekend, starting as early as Wednesday of each week. I'm definitely buying my share of fall and Christmas goodies. Been hitting a few too many of the bake sale tables, too! LOL!

Just wanted to share a few of my goodies I've picked up lately. (Some are still in the bags!) My favorite and biggest buy is this Thanksgiving quilt hanging. It has a nice pocket on the back side for hanging, but I'll be draping this over the couch in my family room. I just love the colors of fall and most of my house is decorated in those colors. Will hate putting this away, but I have a beautiful Christmas quilt that will replace it after Thanksgiving.

Just loved these pumpkins. Yes, I know...I could make these myself. But I get so tired of seeing my own stuff, I'd rather have something made by someone else.

I fell in love with this huge chunky wood pumpkin! It's about 20 inches tall and 2 inches thick, so it sits nicely on the floor or a table!

Aren't these just adorable!! I look for this lady every year and try to buy something new from her. She does absolutely gorgeous painting!

I have bought so much more...but not sure where everything is right now....and the shows are just beginning! LOL! I have been going non-stop for three months and my house is paying the price. I'm trying my best to get caught up with my orders by the end of the week and then spend the weekend cleaning and getting ready for Thanksgiving. I am SO looking forward to Thanksgiving day. It's one of my favorite days of the year.

I also just listed a few new sets of ornies on my website and Etsy. Will be listing more in the next couple of days.

No...there is definitely no rest for the weary! Hope everyone is having a flipping fantastic fall! ~~Annie

  7. Hey Annie..Love all your finds and all your Ornies and I know what you mean about buying someone elses because you are sick of looking at your own.
    This is a personal invitation to you to come to my Craft sale that I will be having on my car port and in my blog (Black Friday week end) as I will not be going to craft show since it is now 70% chance of rain..Gotta get out of podunk by next April so I can then start making items for Craft shows up North.
    Don't forget to check out my blog next week end and the door is always open at my home too.


I just LOVE receiving your comments and look forward to reading each and everyone! I have discovered some of the most wonderful blogs by reading your comments left here! Thanks so much!
