An Exchange Arrives and a Little Thriftin'

Gentle Friends, I've been down with some kind of bug for the last couple of days and have not stitched or touched the computer....  now that I'm back at about 87% I thought I would wrap up the week with a post......

I saw on the HoE that my Autumnal Exchange had arrive at Rosa's...

....  it was a fun stitch and squirrels, nuts and leaves really say Fall for me ......

Last weekend I found a few things...

...  a pair of heavy old brass candlesticks, a great large older "Brown Betty", a sterling footed wheel cut bowl, a handful of sand dollars....  a travel book about Provence and a DVD of an excellent film....  "The Magdalene Sisters."

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by - have a super weekend and see you next week.  I will be out and about shopping for that Christmas cake this weekend!!

Take care,


  1. Beautiful exchange piece and yes it totally says fall.

  8. Love the squirrel, great fall colors. There is nothing better than tea made in a brown teapot! My large brown atlas pot has unfortunately lost it's lid,,,,I broke years ago meant to repair and then must have said " why am I saving a broken lid?". Still the pot looks great on the kitchen counter full of daffodils in the spring.
