Good Morning Prim Folk, Wishing  you a Happy First Day Of Fall!!!!              My favorite time of the year and season. Love everything about Autumn, pumpkins, warm sunny days, cool crisp evenings, the crunch of leaves under foot, wood smoke in the air, the pretty yellow and red leaves, caramel colored sunsets.  It's also a time to get warm and cozy inside the home, feather the nest.  And did I mention  I love Pumpkin's, I do have a love affair with them, something about those wonderful  round orange globes. Just decorating inside and out with them makes me happy!!!!  We are off to the lake today to celebrate Autumn with a toasty crackling fire and to be outdoors with Mother Nature. Fall Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, Happy Tuesday to you!!!!                                                Nothing really exciting in the garden but the Lime Peewee Hydrangea   is turning into the most pretty Bronze or rusty color now, I love it so. It is the prettiest plant in the garden, a few Black Eyed Suzies in bloom but that's about it. I bought the rusty crow from the Homestead show from Earlene's booth, her hubby made it and I had to have one for the garden, love it so!! The little old green wicker plant stand I scored at a yard sale for $3.00, I have always wanted one, not crazy on the color but will do. So, that's about what's happening in the garden, yawn, not to much........Wishing you all a wonderful day, Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  hope you are all doing well, it sure has been awhile. Enjoying my holidays so much, nice not to think about work. Between the lake and just getting home from a wonderful road trip, I have not been blogging. Our trip was to attend a wonderful primitive show in Holly, Michigan put on by such sweet people, Dawn and Dick who live in Holly. An 18 hour drive from Winnipeg but we took our time, three days to get there and enjoyed the beautiful scenery in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. The lakes, forests  are so breathtaking and even the Maple tree's are red in color now, great time of year to travel. I even crossed that famous Mackinaw bridge, kinda of scary but I pulled up my big girl panties for I knew what was coming on the other side, Primitives!!!!!!   The Early Homestead Primitive show was great, bought many goodies and enjoyed seeing many blogging friends, Earlene, Janet, Lauren, Bobbie, Janice and of coarse the host Dawn.  Enjoyed our time there and was definitely worth the trip. The only downfall is not to many pictures, dummy me, I did take with my I-Pad and for some reason I cannot put on my blog, darn blogger wont help me out even, sent feedback many times. So, once I unpack my treasures and do a little decorating, there will be pictures..........Have a wonderful day, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, hope all is well in your neck of the woods....  I'm a happy camper for this is my last day of work then of on holidays for 4 glorious weeks. So looking forward to some R+R, a road trip next week and just plain ole' bumming around at the camp. Heading out to the lake after work today till Friday, been so busy at work on the weekends so doing nothing sounds great about now. Cam bought me these beautiful Sunflowers last week, nice surprise to come home from work tired and find this pretty bouquet.    Have yourself a wonderful week, Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, Happy Friday to you!!!!     Cannot believe it's the last Friday of August already but I am looking forward to the warm days of Fall, I've had it with the humidity and heat of summer.  The garden at the lake is doing well though, Cam's happy with his tomato's, carrots and all the other veggies. My pumpkin's are not doing that well though, so small still, they better get growing.  Not sure why I have trouble growing pumpkins, always have to end up buying some instead of enjoying my own....... Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, hope you all are well. Here it is the middle of August already, wow!!!!!!!  Not much exciting around the yard, many flowers are blooming out but my pretty Little Lime Hydrangea is putting on a show. I love this little plant so, very hardy to our area so it comes back bigger and better each year. Also the flower heads turn a beautiful Bronze color in the Fall, so pretty and can be dried. I have tried to plant the blue and pink Hydrangea with no luck so I will enjoy this little trooper in my garden.            Wishing you a wonderful day, Warm Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  Happy Friday to you!!!!!                                                We sure have been having some wacky weather this summer, so many storms rolling through almost once  a week.  Sunny hot and  humid during the day then the evening comes and boom, thunder, lightning and wicked winds with the rain, rather scary. A few weeks ago we came home from the lake to find this tree broken in the  yard just a few doors down, what a sight. I really don't do good on those hot humid days, I melt, tee hee, so I'm thinking Fall would feel good about now, plus it's my favorite season. Blessings Francine.
