All of a sudden I can't load pictures on my blog...picasa says it's full and I have to purchase more storage. However, my storage says I'm only using 22%. I've seen a few other blogger's having the same problem.
Can't seem to contact anyone directly. Anyone know of a fix? It also says if I delete any pictures from picasa that they will disappear from my blog.

What's up with that????

Any help would be appreciated!

And the Tradition Continues~

Pie Party 2012  is over and done with, but the memories linger forever! I am so blessed to count these lovely ladies as my friends. We do our annual Farm Chick trip together and also Lynda's annual pie party. You can see our previous parties here and here, and also here. Lynda was made to host parties as she is the very best!!!

As usual, the table setting was divine! Those little gingham napkins and the lovely gift awaiting each of us!

A gloriously set table~

And the dearest of friends~Karen, Lynda and Terry.

There was a delicious sausage, potato soup, homemade rolls and a wonderful salad...not many leftovers!

There is much laughter...and a few tears, as our hearts are always sharing~

Miss Terry brought me a lovely, little gift~

The most adorable Hallmark ornament ever made!

Can't wait to put it on my tree! Still dreaming about the full sized addition!

We played a rousing game of Autumn Pictionary!

Isn't Lynda adorable?!!!

Karen was the winner and went home with a lovely prize!

As we do every year, we all brought pie...isn't this just the best party idea?! Terry and I thought alike and brought Rustic Apple pies...I used the Pioneer Woman's recipe from her cookbook. Terry's had a little "accident" on the way in, but tasted delicious. Karen made a fabulous Blackberry Pie, and Lynda made a "to die for" Butterscotch Meringue Pie, Everything was so YUMMY!! We all share and take home some of everyone else's pies.

 We all worked on our traditional fall stitcherie's that Lynda put together, but I forgot to take a picture of that. Instead I took one of what Lynda is working on now. Isn't it cute? I want to make it too! 

Thank you Lynda, for bringing us together once again. This is such a fun we look forward too all year!

I'm so thankful for dear friends!
Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been a busy few weeks! A little vacation, some work, lots of yard work (still mowing my lawn :(), and just catching up on things. I took a little time out on Friday to go to the Funky Junk show with some friends. I'll post about the show later, but wanted you to see this adorable, little, vintage trailer. I've seen it on Pinterest, but seeing it up close and all decked out for the holidays was so much better!
I don't know who owns the one around and no information on it. Whoever it is is one lucky lady (or man)!!!

If I had a trailer I think I'd want this one...and always decorated for Christmas! Wouldn't that be fun?!!

Come on in!

I love that bunting, and the tins, and the snowman and the's for Holly, you know!

Didn't have the courage to ask everyone to leave, so I waited patiently to get the best pictures!

That little mitten pillow and the lovely quilts were adorable~

And this table setting? pour me a cup please!! Look closely on top of the radio, at the little trailer ornament. Looks just like the real thing!

I collect old varsity letters and have planning to make pillows for quite some time. I'm good at that. The planning. Nothing else, just the planning!

And those who know me know I have a love of old thermos's too! Don't you love that lamp?

I could have pulled this one straight home, just the way it was!
