Wow! I don’t know about you but, as slow and simmering as Summer has been, we are all of a sudden popping into Fall and Autumn without so much as a fare-thee-well!
To show you how busy I have been, I will share with you a few projects I am working on.
- I have been bringing out my Fall decor a little at a time, (now)
- preparing for a Hawaiian Luau for our church group (7 September),
- sorting through boxes of Christmas ‘stuff” that I ordered on-line (current and past)
- and getting the guest room ready for family and friends coming on the 14th of Sept.
You might ask why I have not “sorted” through the boxes of Christmas stuff as they come to my door and I will tell you that it is easier to take a black marker and mark on the box what is inside and then store it until I am ready for it to come forth from the dark recesses of the cardboard boxes and tape.
True, I might have a boo-boo or two, but for as long as I have been ordering on-line, (which is like forever)…I have never had to return ANYTHING.
I know, right?
What are the odds?
Perhaps one day that will come back and bite me, but the companies I deal with are very easy to work with and so far, no complaints.
So this leads me to one more endeavor I have taken on.
A Weekly Link Party!!! What Fun!
I have joined my sweet friend Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate and Decorate and the wonderful author and maker of Sweet Sensations, (yummy) Sandra Garth, for a link party that we hold each week.
What this means for those who don’t know is: we provide a weekly place or venue for anyone who wants to showcase a recipe or tablescape or gardening or DIY.
It is called….
For example here are a few links from last week that Chloe, Sandra and I would like to spotlight.
The first highlighted selection is mine….and it is from Penny’s Vintage Home, particularly her “Fall Mantel.”
There are just a few simple guidelines or rules for this Link Party.
Well, my dear readers….Have a safe and fun week, tomorrow I have a delicious oatmeal raisin cookie recipe to share that screams Fall.
Perhaps screams is not the correct word…how about quietly says, drink milk and eat an oatmeal raisin cookie.
Welcome as a host to this wonderful party!! I will be following you wherever I can…Thanks so much for hosting each week!
Thanks Debbie I appreciate you following me.Hugs right back at ya.

Kari! So excited that you are now part of the hostesses for Celebrate Your Story! I’ve just followed you on Pinterest and IG! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!
Thank you Julie….we are in SW Florida and keep losing electricity…I hope my post is able to be seen. I love comments. 🙂
Kari, I’m really looking forward to your creative spin on the Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme for your party. Of the four My Favorite Things Parties I’ve held so far, it’s definitely my favorite theme. The ladies loved dressing up in little black dresses, the photo booth, the pearl games, etc. Of course when you are serving champagne all afternoon…LOL!
thanks Debbee, You gave me so many ideas, I will let you know what comes up. thanks for stopping by.
We are having weather issues tonight….the tropical storm is passing by and we keep losing electricity. 🙁
