In Love With my Handyman//Mr.P.

Good afternoon everyone.  Hoping to find all of you enjoying your week thus far.  Things have finally calmed down a little here at the home place.  I so love this time of the year.  Yes, I love fall and all its splendor, but there is another reason I love this time of the year.  Mr. P. works from April until September in the workshop creating for the fall show we do in September.  Other than keeping up the home place, his time is spent out there.  So..... I just make a list of all the things I want done for me and this time of the year, he tries hard to make me happy!!

I have wanted a blanket crane for a while now so that was one of the first things on my list. I was so tickled when he brought it in the other evening.

I haven't been satisfied with the wall behind the sofa for a while.  It was full of photos and a vinyl saying.  So... what did my dear handyman do?  Before hanging the blanket crane, he removed everything, patched nail holes and painted the wall for me. 
Another item on my list was a cupboard to go on this same wall.   Here is a sneak peek .  Of course I had to decorate if for the holiday.
A cute little doll holding a little ear of Indian Corn.  This doll was a gift from Shirlee.  Her blog is Farmhouse Ponderings.  She does wonderful cross stitch and I am sure she would love for you to visit her there.  
Love this rusty little truck.  One of my favorite things.
Don't you think Mr. P did a great job?  Yes this is just what I wanted.  But that wasn't all.  One more thing for that wall
A thermostat cover..  Finally I don't have to look at that ugly plastic cover.  Thank you so much Mr. P

Last Wednesday our Ladies' WMU from our church took a road trip and went to a neighboring town to eat lunch at the Green Manor.  It was a beautiful old home / restaurant.
The food was delicious and we all had a wonderful time.  Afterward I went looking for a car.  If any of you are waiting for me to drive up in your yard and pay you a visit,,,,, well I am afraid it might be a while.  I still do not have a ride.  Thank goodness for Holly!!! Hoping to get a car soon. 
Well it's about time for supper and for the Mister to be home from work.  Gota show him what's on my list today.  {smile}.  I am so thankful for such a good and talented husband.  Anybody want to borrow my handyman??
Hope you have a great evening,,, Until next time.
