Yes, it is! Today was the start of school for Sydney and Sam now in 4th and 1st grade, when the bus pulled away my daughter had tears in her eyes saying “Their getting so big” I said “just wait”, right ladies? Of course we both forgot our camera’s but it was pouring down rain and chilly so it just wasn’t picture worthy, I’ll take some on a sunny day! I hope they are having a wonderful first day of school♥
I sure had an experience Tuesday afternoon as I was watching both of them at their home, I was sitting at the computer (of course ) which is on the first level of their home and I could feel the floor vibrating underneath the computer chair. I looked up and the Barbie Townhouse was swaying back and forth, I think this lasted 60 seconds or so, the other’s were on the second level (livingroom and kitchen, they have a tri level home) “an earthquake” I said and of course they called me “crazy grammy! NOT CRAZY!!! I knew it was true when we looked up the newspaper on the internet and Pittsburgh had felt it! My first earthquake and I hope my last, a really weird feeling my friends! I can still see that Barbie Townhouse going back and forth! Michael, who was teaching at the time in Anapolis, Maryland, felt it even worse, he thought a bomb had gone off, of course his school was dismissed for the day! I hope and pray it I never feel that again, a very helpless situation!
It’s a very fallish day here in Pa. so I’d like to share what I’ve been buying to decorate my home for the new season we are going to enter soon, just can’t believe it!
Aren’t they pretty? At the Dollar Tree!
Found these at GW for .89!
Closer look at them!
Glittery garland from the Dollar Tree also! Love it under the soup tureen so maybe it will stay there when I decorate for fall, there is two there so maybe I should get another one!
See the glitter on them, and just a dollar, get them because they go fast! People are even buying Christmas stuff that they have started to put out!
These leaf tea light holders are from Family Dollar…just a buck!
A Fall Welcome mat from Family Dollar too…$6.00! I think it will look so nice in front of my black door which I’m still loven BTW!
I picked up this wreath holder at JoAnn’s, It will be so nice to be able to put a wreath on the front and this hanger lets me put another one on the inside of the door…it was $5.99!!
This beauty came from, of all places, Rite Aid! I got her 50% off for just $3.99, she is so classy looking isn’t she?
At the end of this past winter I bought these tin leaf napkin rings, two sets for $2.00 each at Bed Bath and Beyond with coupon!
Really neat looking I think, of course I have to get some newer napkins!
Also picked up these little gourd candles…so cute!
Also for $2.00!
I think I’ll have a very pretty Thanksgiving table this year, the granddaughter’s are getting old enough now to make special memories and I want them to remember their Grammy’s home for the holidays, I never had grandparents and I’ve always felt cheated by that so I want to make their memories good ones, ones I wish I had!
I’ll be joining these parties, thanks ladies for doing this, I always have fun looking at everyone’s links, I know you will too! Just click on the links below and they will take you to the specified party!
