♥ A Friday Surprise ♥

Good morning friends,
It's Sunday already and tomorrow is Dec. 1st where is the time going and why so fast? I am making a head way on my Christmas decorating though...just doing a little at a time still don't have my big tree up and I know I won't get to it today because I'm going with Michele and the girls Christmas shopping and also the Steeler's play today at about 4:00 PM. I know Stush won't want me by the TV decorating the tree:) so I'll do that tomorrow!
I worked till 5 on Friday and didn't notice the box on the porch when I pulled into the driveway and I guess Stush didn't either...when we went to leave at about 7 we went out the front door and there was my box from Karen from My Yellow Farmhouse in it was the giveaway I had won:) What a nice surprise after standing on my feet for 5 hours! I didn't get to open it until I got home...got a shower, jamies on then sat down to savor the moment:) Karen had it wrapped so prim and a sweet note attached...thank you Karen!
Isn't it adorable and I've always wanted one...now I can't wait till next fall, Corrie and Michael are here till tomorrow and I showed Corrie who loves country prims and she just loved it:) I just love the black background with all the fall colors:) Thank you sooooo much Karen♥

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend...tomorrow starts deer season, Stush was out yesterday posting No Hunting signs on trees, we live up in the woods so I really appreciate him doing that...I'll be glad when it's over, just makes me nervous to go outside for fear someone doesn't obey the signs.
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy decorating for Christmas♥ Oh and please leave a comment I just love hearing from you... lurkers too:) Means so much to me.


  1. That pillow is really cute!!
    Our deer season is over now, we didnt have any luck this year however.....
    Have fun decorating- cant wait to see !!

  2. I know what you mean about deer season and hunters. Some have no respect for private property. We've even had our fencing CUT AND MARKED so they could go between our land and another's. Like what do they think fencing is for anyway? And it really bothers me when their dogs come running and barking through, but, like you, the bullets scare me the most. Some shoot before they get a good visual. Fools!

    Be careful!

  28. Hi, Rondell! I have been missing for the last week. I'm just getting caught up with some blogs :) I love your goodies and your new header is cute. Is that you coffee table arrangement? I'm trying to decide what I should do with mine yet! It shouldn't be this hard! LOL

    Have a great day!


  29. Rondell, be careful missy! You are right, they don't read the signs a lot of times!
    Love the pillow too!

  30. What a sweet pillow, love it! And what a nice thing to come home too after working. Everything here looks so festive, I"m still decorating too, but should have it all done by the weekend!

  31. What a cute pillow! Aren't surprises just wonderful?

  32. Hi Rondell,
    What a cute pillow...isn't it wonderful to find a surprise at the door!!
    I love your new blog header. The crow with the Santa hat is adorable!
    Can't wait to see your Christmas decorating when you're done. I hope to start mine tomorrow...as I've had the flu for the last few day.
    Take care,

  33. Congratulations! What a nice wool pillow ~ it will be perfect in your prim home.

    We're posting signs too ~ we live right in the middle of the woods and early morning we can hear shots all around. I won't even let the children go outside just in case! We've already spotted 2 hunters on our property and DH had to go out to meet them and send them on their way.



Love to read each and everyone of your comments...thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit... your always welcome♥
