Camera Issues and Autumn

After much packing and cleaning we sent son off on Halloween night on a flight to Seattle. He took his black cat on board with him and shipped the car. Much easier with a kitty. We had her here for the week and Bowie and her got along just fine. We had a blockade in the hallway and they each had their own part of the house. The night before he left, we all watched Sleepless in Seattle. Son had never seen it and he really loved it. Sad and Happy!!
 I added a few Thanksgiving touches to my existing fall decor. I can only show you 2 pic's. My point and shoot was never great to begin with, but now most shots are out of focus. Hmmmm. I'll have to solve that issue soon. Added a vintage turkey salt shaker. This was the one that started my collection. I found her at Salvation Army. It took a few more years to find the Tom Turkey.For those of you who have been following a long time, you've seen my whole collection of turkey salt and peppers. I just pulled out a few this year. Trying to simplify.
 The penny rug is another that I designed and made out of felt. I love the acorn edges.
I'll try to get my camera fixed and post more soon. As I was walking Bowie this morning, I was thinking how lucky I am to be walking Bowie in this pretty fall weather. The weather is damp and cooler here, and we're supposed to get more rain. Hopefully not more flooding. Anyway, just feeling thankful today. Have a great week!

    So sorry about your camera. I know that can be frustrating.
    Yes the weather has been gorgeous. Today was so pretty but rain is on the way with cooler temps.

  2. I'm glad you have little Bowie to keep you company after your son moved, Leslie. It's good to see them spread their wings, but hard to let go too.

    Love the little penny rug you designed! I hope you get your camera in working order. Darn electronics!

  5. Your fall decor looks great...I haven't put much out...I never really decorate for fall. Just a few flowers and a pumpkin or two so things look festive for the family at Thanksgiving.
    My fun time to decorate is Christmas. :)

  6. Much success to your son with his new life, Leslie. I know how hard it is.

    I don't do all that much for Fall either, but I like looking at the pictures ;)

  9. Hi and I hope your son and the kitty do well in Seattle. My daughter and her family used to live in Bellevue right outside of Seattle. I'm sure he'll enjoy it! Love your little turkey too and thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. Your Fall decor looks charming Leslie, adore your penny rug! I haven't gotten our Thanksgiving stuff down yet --- its in the garage and up too high, so I have to wait for the hubby.
    So glad your son is enjoying Seattle and easily making the transition.
    Happy Monday!
