The leaves are falling.....

The wind has blown so hard all day and the leaves are falling like snow. It's sunny but the wind is chilly. Tomorrow is suppose to be sunny and warm so hopefully, I can get back out in the garage & get things finished up for Christmas Open House. This is my house with it's new brown paint. As soon as I can get the shutters painted red, my B-I-L Mike will be down to hang them. Can't wait!!
This was taken right after they finished my hallway but wanted to show you how it looked. The whole room & hall are finished now and it looks so good. I went to the auction today to try & buy a rug but they were huge and so expensive. I want an old one so bad but may have to settle for a Lowe's rug for now. I'll just keep my eyes peeled & one day I'll find one.

Sorry, this isn't a great picture but wanted to show the necklaces that Kristy from Leola's made for me. Allison will be 39 on Mon. & I asked Kristy to make her a necklace out of and old watch of Mike's & some other pieces I had. Well, it turned out that she used some parts that were left and made one for me too. Allison is going to love this. Kristy brought in 20 new necklaces yesterday & they are incredible.




I've decided to see if anyone actually reads my blog and comes to Leola's so if you come to Leola's open house and say you read my blog, you can sign up for a special prize. I'll have a drawing on Monday and post the winner on Monday afternoon. Not quite certain what the prize will be but I'll post it soon. We'll see what happens.

Hi Jan, love your new wood floors! Kristi's necklaces are wonderful, so neat that you gave her the pieces to make them with. I really love what she did! Happy Birthday to Allison! AND your brown house is super, can't wait to see it with the new shutters.
Have a good weekend!

I know you are loving those floors! I think the red shutters will look great on the house. The house looks sharp.

I love the necklaces. What a great idea to make them out of Mike's watch. So special. ~Mindy
