A Few Birthday Goodies and Fall Displays

Thank you to all of my Prim friends who sent me warm birthday wishes on Monday!  It was very heart-warming to read all of the emails and comments left on my blog !  A big HUG to all of you!

*****Carrie/Unmatched Socks – I still need you to email me your address so I can mail the giveaway goodies to you!  Thanks!!*****



My sister and I headed to Amish country where she treated me to a “birthday breakfast” at Rebecca’s Tea Room & Bistro. YUM!!

I had just been there a week and a half ago and didn’t find very much.

I found this bowl for $14.00 and this jar for $6.00 at an antique mall on my first trip:




I also found these goodies on the first trip!






I found the jar on   clearance for $5.99  at a bulk food store and the light-up pumpkin at Country Gatherings in Berlin on the trip  with my sister.


I bought a lamp shade on my first trip, but it was too big for where I wanted to put it.  So I exchanged it for this one:


We bought an Elliptical machine over Labor Day weekend that was suppose to be for my birthday, but my dear sweet hubby also gave me a very generous gift certificate to Primitive Keepings where I went on Tuesday to purchase this light.



I  finally got a start at putting some fall stuff out.  I forgot that I got rid of a lot of stuff last year with the intention of making or buying new decor, so I don’t have a whole lot to show yet. (I do have a long list of things I want to make!!  lol) Again, this is just a start!!
