Friday Fotos & Facts



On a walk this week, we happened upon so many beautyberry bushes.  Their 
color is amazing, but the birds LOVE them, so every clump was a bit abused.











It's beginning to look a lot like Halloween in these parts!








PhotoStory Friday

 
 
 




 


My recent giveaway was so much fun that I'm planning another exciting review & 
giveaway from CSN Stores in the near future!  I wonder what it will be? 
Maybe something practical, like an ottoman coffee table.  Maybe something fun, 
like a tricycle.  Maybe something pretty, like new dinnerware.

You'll have to check back to see.

Love the first shot. Gorg! Love your halloween stuff too and the collage features it all so well. I could never put pumpkins on our fireplace though, Boyd would destroy the display in about 2 seconds. :)

Have a beautiful weekend!

Dominic really wants a skeleton but I'm not so sure it wouldn't frighten him. He acts real tough sometimes but weird things scare him. :) Love your Halloween look!

Love those berries! And what a fun Halloween collage!! My kids are aching to pull out our Halloween stuff, but getting up in the attic is low on my husband's to-do list. :(
