Fall Fun & A Surprise

Hubby and I spent a wonderful, restful weekend
at our cabin. And even knowing that the canyon would
be in full fall bloom....neither of us remembered
the camera! We are definitely not the
brightest bulbs in the pack. hehe!

Sitting on the front deck, looking at all that
beautiful fall color, with no camera, just
made me want to cry.

Then I remembered my cell phone
has a camera. I've never really taken pictures
with it before so I wasn't sure how well they
would turn out. But I don't think they're too bad.

It was a real treat when we got back home, and my
order from Elyse had arrived!

Her cute clips are just the most adorable
things, and so fun to use.

And look how cute that pencil cup is,
covered with wallpaper! Love, love.

It holds my vintage spools perfectly!

And if that wasn't enough, she surprised me
with lots of sweet extras. A pretty doily,
a package of that sweet, adorable tissue
paper that I love so much, and the
cutest little plant labels.

And look at these tags! *squeal*   Elyse designed
this adorable button to add to our blogs, for our
birthday swap that we're doing. But, she turned
them into tags and sent me some!

Look at this one with glitter, rhinestones, and beads.
I absolutely love them Elyse!

And the little plant labels are a perfect addition
to my kitchen window.

Have a restful Sunday!
