 Isn't this beautiful?  This is where we spent our weekends this summer.
 The waves were just right, and the kids had a ball!
 Why we never went here every Summer, I will never know!
 I love this place...Lake Erie! It is just so amazing, and as I sit here contemplating my surgery Tuesday, I wish I was back there. It is one of the most serene places on Earth, and it is the place to go to relieve stress. 
There was never more than a handful of people on this part of the beach, and I am so looking forward to going back. And to think it was practically in my back yard.

 I told you guys I/ was getting ready for an auction in November, and after working on dolls for two weeks, I still have tons to get ready. So I am hoping everything goes well in surgery, and I have a fast recovery. Yes, I am still upset about having it, but it is supposed to be a life changer. I am praying it is.   Two posts in one day? What am /I thinking!


 Sweet Amy from Bumble Bee Lane held another FABULOUS swap, The Harvest Gathering Swap, and I was so fortunate to have two wonderful partners this time! First, There was Danice, "HOMESPUN HANNAH'S Blog. Below are the wonderful items she sent me.

 I was so excited to open this box of goodies! I had Danice as a partner before, and she is such a sweetheart and Friend.
 This little painted basket of goodies was just so cute. Pumpkin seeds for next year!
 Then this cute little Harvest Rabbit with her little pumpkin and carrot. It is the sweetest ever. A homemade apron with an owl on it, a pretty fall dishtowel, a set of homemade coasters
 And this cute as a can candle holder with candle commemorating the /harvest Swap...what a clever idea.
 My little Autumn sign she made, and a sweet little pillow tuck!

 A pretty floral pinkeep...and a beautiful card. Thank you so much Danice. You have spoiled me, and I just love everything!!!
I also had Becky from GINGER CREME HOLLOW! BECKY HAS ALSO BEEN MY PARTNER BEFORE. Below is what Becky sent:

 This is just the cutest pumpkin and scarecrow ever, and the bag of potpourie is so unique.

 And the crow...I love crows. I have it hanging on my tree.

 Two candle tarts that smell heavenly... and she must have known how much I needed the wonderful heating, cooling pad. It works wonders
