Time to confess

You can imagine that I make a lot of beds and with that comes a like or dislike for the comforters we use. My favorite, of course, would be linen duvet covers like I use here at home but my linen service does not offer these.  Back to my comforters, there is one style in particular that I have had since the dinosaurs roamed the earth – at least 10 years.  It’s a Martha Stewart quilt. I have 6 of them.  They have been washed so many times that the fabric is wearing thin and has broken and torn all over the place, on all of them. If I were to fix the tears, I would only create new ones, so I don’t even try. Yet I cannot help myself, I put the quilts on the beds anyway.  Usually they go on the beds of guests that I know very well and to whom I can explain why that comforter is on their bed

Because it has this perfect weight
it feels really comfy!

So, should you find this comforter in your cottage and on your bed,  just go with it,  you could not be more comfortable sleeping under that thing.

See, it’s this sea-foam green with white stylized flowers. It goes perfectly with the curtains and the pictures on the wall
without being matchy-matchy…
Good night!

Frankfort’s Fall Festival 2010

Today was one of the most beautiful days you can imagine. The sun was out, the sky was blue, the temps were in the 70’s the leaves on the trees showed their fall colors and I baked cookies, hehe. Martha Stewart’s Buttery Pecan Rounds to be exact. Yum.

Ok, I know that’s not what you want to read about. You want to know how much fun the parade was.  Without further ado, here are the pictures of the parade. Sadly I never made it back into town to see all the other goings on.

So, first I went by Lee’s house. She has such a knack with decorations and beautification

And then I got to the parade staging area where there were all these pooches in their fun costumes:

😆  can you see the Wiener Dog in his banana suit?

Of course there were the horses…

…and giant pumpkins

…as well as lots of cute foreign and domestic cars :mrgreen:

Roger Griner, republican candidate for County Commissioner

…a huge Lego pirate – arrrrrgggh

The Mennonite farmers…


Marcia Stobie, democratic candidate for County Commissioner

The queens of the Mutt March, Roxie and Lee.  That about does it for the parade.  I found it strange that there was total silence during the parade except for maybe some whoops and hollers as the floats went by.  I am going to school to ask where the heck the school’s band was.  They are quite good and should be heard other than at concerts once a year.

And when I came home I found a box in the mailbox addressed to meeeeee:

The Fuller’s had sent a huge hug for me.  I feel loved 🙂

I have a cool video of the Fall Festival, click here

My Garden

I didn’t have much time this summer to write for you, but I did find the time to take pictures!
How do you feel about reading some summer stories now that fall is here?

This garden belongs to a young family in Elberta, who are renting a home from us.  So, technically I could say “this is my garden” hehe.

It’s perfect and it looks a little like Martha Stewart had something to do with this, doesn’t it?
See for yourself

Everything is orderly, with walk ways. It’s just lovely- really.

There are tiny solar lights all around this garden, it looks beautiful at dusk 🙂

So, what do you think of “my garden”?
