A Stop, A Stool, A Squeeze and A Prayer





Hello to all who stopped by today for a visit. Today's post is more of a random post with a few pics from around my little place. Nothing theme oriented, just a glimpse of some more goodies to share.

I rearranged our mantle a few weeks ago and probably will be rearranging it AGAIN to add some fall goodies. There is also a new little piece in my collection that I had to have because it just is sweet as can be. It is an old, well - I think it is old - but nevertheless it is a charming door stop with some great flowers in all the colors I love. My friends, Jeannie and Karen, who sell their goodies at Remember When, were selling the door stop in their space. They always offer the cutest things in their space at the shop.

Another new addition is a wonderful stool that I bought from Marsha. She covered it in a great toile fabric and repainted the legs to a Navajo white. For now it rests in our entryway.

While at the grocery store, I found the cutest little pumpkins on a branch!! Have you ever seen anything like these? I had to take a second and third look and give them a little squeeze to be sure that they were the real deal!! They remind me of a little tomato dangling from a vine. So cute! I added a few sunflowers and some greenery. Of course, the little chickens had to hang out next to the Fall arrangement.

I also want to let you know that I may not be getting around to visiting and leaving comments for a day or two. My father was admitted to the hospital yesterday evening. He has been extremely tired these past few weeks and yesterday was his worse day yet. The doctors are treating him for an infection and pneumonia. He was just getting ready to move some Larkspur in his garden and plant his flowers for spring, too. For now, he will need to rest. If you would not mind, please say a little prayer for my dad. His name is Bobby. Thank you!!! xoxoxoxo. Hugs to you...no more for now...I am getting choked up.

Love your little goodies, and the pumpkins on a stick? How sweet!

Prayers for your daddy. My mom has pneumonia, too, and even though they said her lungs were now clear, she coughs non-stop and is miserable. Makes us sad and worried to see our parents not in tip top shape.

Hugs to you Becky,

Melissa

My sister has pneumonia right now also. So let's pray for these three that we love... Oh Father we know that you hold us dear so we ask that you heal Bobby, Melissa's Mom and Allison. We love them and hate to see them hurt. We know that you are the only One who can take their sickness away. Draw each of them to you and give them health. -amen- Blessings...Polly

Your mantle is really pretty. I have a woodstove and am bugging my DH to have a mantle built now too. I would maybe even like an old traditional Dutch mantle.

I am so sorry to hear your father is in the hospital! Prayers and good thoughts are being sent your way Becky. I hope you will be sharing the good news about him recovering very soon!

Take care as I know how worry can be for yourself too.

First of all best wishes to your Dad, and I do hope he feels good as new very soon!

What gorgeous pictures you have today - I love your little pumpkins on a vine and the crocheted chickens - the stool is lovely and the fabric fantastic - your mantle looks so pretty with the gorgeous candlestick and I see you have needlework - and your door stop is a beautiful find! I have one that is a basket of flowers that I found at a garage sale, and it's wonderful!

Take care!

PattieJ said...

Oh I love all of your stuff Becky! Especially all of your rooster stuff!! I need to crochet myself some of those adorable hen egg covers, I'm going to have to look for a pattern on the net, every time I see yours it reminds me that I still need to look for a pattern for them.:) I love the way you have them on the vintage pot holder or what ever it is, it looks like the perfect nest.
I'll keep your dad in my thoughts and prayers.
