I have a follower!! And I did manage to get one project finished...

I am soooo Happy!!!
I have my first follower listed to my blog...
I know many of you follow, and I LOVE YOU for it!!
Everyone makes little ole me feel so special
by following my blog...
and just in case I have forgotten
to say so...
THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!
:D
I had discovered a new blog belonging to Esther, of Charmed Era...
It was her first post.
You should all drop by some time...
give her some encouragement too!!!
Next of all I would love to show you some
of my wonderful Autum decorations...
unfortunately I have not gotten much of
my outside done...
so here are a couple from last year!!
I will show you some of the others
as I get them done..
THIS WEEK!!!
Inside and Out! ;-)

Here are my pumpkin decorations in the yard...
and at the end of the driveway... mailbox!
Now for my finished project...
You all helped me to get it done...
I took a poll on which ones you all liked
I had several that voted...
(And once again THANK YOU!!!)
The finally votes were for:
The following Hummingbirds...
Allen, Ana, Blue-throated,
Pennant-tailed, and Ruby -throated!!
Well, it wasn't easy but I studied the pics...
decided on some of your choices...
It was between 3 choices...
and after much thought...
Here are the winners!!!

I hope you like them as much as I do... and here is the finished bench!!


It sets on my front porch with a command sitting spot to watch all of the Hummingbirds fight over my two feeders!!! Between the grandchildren, my hubby and myself we spend quite a bit of time on this wonderful bench!! I am just soooooo Ecstatic to have it finished!!!

I also have been working on other projects... some I cant show... (Sue's) and so I will show you one that I have been trying to figure out what to do with... I haven't finished it yet... but hopefully tomorrow!! Here it is as is... the old Silverware box...



I took undone three wallpaper books...
and now I am using it to line this box.
The next thing is to figure out if it will hold
my youngest daughter's laptop.
If it will, it will become her case for it.
If not... then I will put some dividers into it
and it will become my lap desk.
It will hold paper, pens,
after I compartmentalize it!!

So stay tuned to see what the out come is!!

I do have one question for either Robin of Robin's Nest, or Sue of Cotton Patch...

Do we have to wait until November 18th to mail our Christmas Stocking Swaps...or can we do them as soon as we are finished???????? Let me know... I am almost there!!! By the way Robin, in case I haven't said so, I would like to THANK YOU, so much for all the fun that you are giving me, letting me participate in the swap!!! I believe it is a wonderful idea!! And in the process I am getting some Christmas projects done for my family thanks to the spirit hitting me earlier!!! (I have to be one of the BIGGEST procrastinators in the world... so maybe there is hope for me yet!!! ;-D ) I hope everyone else is having as much fun as I am!!

Well for now I hope everyone has an absolutely wonderful day!!
I know I have!!!! :D

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
Remember to Live well, Laugh often,
and to LOVE much!!
