A Few More Ohio Goodies

Good evening everyone.  Hoping you all have had a wonderful Monday.  It has been a great day here at the homeplace.  I woke this morning with determination to finish two projects  I had started, and WOOHOO, tonight they are done.  Mission accomplished.  Now as far as housework,,,, we won't go there.  Only so much this gal can  do in a day.

Carmen, this is for you my friend.  I have not shown one of my favorite purchases from our trip to Ohio.  I so wanted to wait until I have the bedspread finished to go with my purchase, but it's taking longer than I thought so here you go.  My first coverlet.  Also got the pillow shown on the bed.

Will show you the bedroom when I get all the accessories I want in there. I hope to add to my collection as time goes on.

I got my first Billy Jacobs prints.  I was so excited to purchase them and now can't decide where I want them hung.  So right now their home is upstairs on the guest bed.  Will find the perfect spot one day.

And a dough bowl full of more bittersweet I purchased at an open market. I was so thrilled to get this and from talking to some of you, it was a wonderful price.  Wish I had purchased more.

I also got placemats, lots of  candles, and too many smalls to name.  Yes, it was a great trip and wonderful memories were made. 

Hoping you have found something during your day that made you happy and brought a smile to your face.  Happy Fall to all of you.  I cherish all of my friends and followers and love it when you  visit. 
Until next time......
