DAY 13

DAY 13, BOO HOO!!!!!!!
Morning Prim Folk, well, here we are on the 13th Day Of Halloween, sad to see it end.  A big thank you to our  hosts Robyn of Primlish and Misi  of 1890 Gable House Musings for putting together this fun chain.  I have had a great time with these gals, loved seeing the homes decorated with such wonderful Halloween goodness, so many vintage goodies. I really didn't think I had that much stuff, do like black cats and keep them out all year long. Also enjoyed reading a post from Ms. Cranky everyday, a real treat that is........................ ..........................So on this last day, my display is in front of the  fire place in the back porch.. Smiling Jack head, yes, had to have the black kitty doorstop in there and sat my prim Halloween  guy with his magic pumpkin wand on the wee bench. Wishing you all a Happy All Hallow's  Eve,  Boo Blessings Francine.    P.S. I am off on my broom flying to Manoman Minn. with my older Sister for a little 2 day getaway in about a hour, wish me luck, Cackle Cackle!!!!!

Morning Prim Folk,  hope this Wednesday finds you all great..........................Day 6 of 13 Days Of Halloween hosted by Robyn and Misi, so far  I am keeping up so good!!!!!!! :)                                                                        This little black kitty Halloween display is on my wee table in the kitchen corner. The antique postcard is the only  one I own, the stamp on the back  is dated  1911.  I bought it many many years ago when Halloween goodies  was not sky high. The lady I bought it from had a bunch of them but I liked this one, if I had only known back then that Halloween items are so hard to come by now and very pricey I would have bought them all, but who would have thunk it, not me.   Boo Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  the sun is shining here this morning but it  is a rather cold one out there.  The temperature has that  Autumn nip in the air now,  there is frost on my pumpkins, oh my and the water is frozen in the birdbath..................Had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with loved ones, so nice to have family over to share in the bounty, to much bounty I think, still eating turkey sandwiches but I love them more  then the hot turkey :)  Thank you for all the Thanksgiving wishes too, warms the heart,  I am blessed......................Received in  the mail yesterday a package I ordered from  Primitives By Olde Lady Morgan, yipee!!!! my sweet Joey arrived safe and sound. Joey is the cutest Prim Pumpkin dolly  ever, so happy she came to live with me. Marie's prim crafts are one of a kind, talented lady and I adore her primitive creations. Also inside the package was a prim Jack, love him  too, I will find the perfect spot for them both.........................This afternoon I am off to visit my Mother and also curl her hair, she still likes it curled  and set, makes her feel nice.  The hairdresser that usually is there to style hair is on vacation so she found a replacement to come in every Saturday, or so we thought. Two Saturdays now my Mother along with other gals have gone to get their hair done to find NO one there,  burns me up. The  lady's along with my Mother expected to get their hair done to find the room empty, these lady's look forward to having their hair done, many cannot style their own  hair, that is my Mother. I do not mind but I do not like the elderly treated so, do they not matter??? How can someone say oh yea I will be there Saturday and not show up, call, anything, ARRGGGGG!!!!!! had to get that off my chest....................Anywho, wishing you all a beautiful Fall day, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  hope this weekend finds you all well................This is our long Thanksgiving  Holiday weekend here in Canada,  so we are celebrating giving Thanks today instead on the Holiday Monday.  My family is  coming over this afternoon for supper, we are having the traditional Turkey, I have to have one, always have, always will, love it.   Also a ham, mashed potato's, green and yellow beans, carrots and  stuffing.  My SIL is bringing her famous cabbage rolls, so tasty, my two Sisters are bringing dessert, oh ya. I believe pumpkin pie and a  lemon cake, will be a feast for sure. We have much to be thankful for,  I will enjoy being with family sitting around the table with us, all is good.............. I put out some of my Turkey collectibles  around  the house since it is that time, Gobble Gobble Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  nice weather we are having so far this week,  warm, sunny, great for doing some outdoor chores before the cold settles in. Cleaned up some the flower beds but many  flowers are still blooming so I had to leave them, didn't have the heart to cut or pull them out yet. Also washed the windows, aired out some quilts, nothing like the smell of the outdoors........So while I was outside I grabbed the camera to take a few pictures of the flowers that are still so pretty. The Monk's Hood is only starting to open, really late bloomer, love the color of these flowers, such a pretty blue. The Autumn Joy is also a late bloomer, pretty red rosettes the buzzing  bees love. I bought some Tulip and Grape Hyacinths bulbs to plant yet, hope the naughty Squirrel dose not find them and dig them up................Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday, Fall Blessings Francine.

Sunday Greetings Prim Folk,  hope all is well with you this weekend............Well, we decided to come home last night from the lake, a little to chilly out there even with the heater, quilts, just to cold.  The sun never did show as the weather man predicted, do you believe he was wrong, Ha!!!!!! Was so cold with  that North wind blowing, we did what we had to do, winterized the trailer and home bound we came where it's warm and cozy.............We did stop at a yard sale on the way home, sure glad we did for I found a nice blue|white enamel bowl for my collection, don't have that size, so happy happy, a little black  Halloween kitty head and a package of melts in Pumpkin Spice Bread, smells so yummy...........Today is suppose to be sunny and warm, hmmm, will have to see about that but  I would like to get out and finish up cleaning the flower beds, even though  some flowers  are still blooming..............Wishing you a beautiful day, Fall Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk,  Happy Friday to you all............Well, the time has come to go to the lake and tuck in the trailer for a long winters nap, I'm happy it's Friday but sad we are going to the lake for the last weekend of the year, so bittersweet.   I will enjoy sitting by the crackling fire, I believe I will have to be near the fire for the weather is rather cool this weekend but we will tough it out, knowing it is our last stay of 2013.  We have lots of cozy sweaters  to layer on,  a warm heater in the trailer and many warm quilts to cover us, we will be fine........So much to be done  to winterize the trailer but Cam  will " get her done" and  I will clean the flower beds, fill the bird feeders, rake the leaves and defrost  the fridges woo hoo!!!! lots to be done before we can leave Sunday, but I  will get some relaxing and reading in too, also hope Cam can get out on the lake one last time, if the weather permits.................... Wishing you all a great weekend, Fall  Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, here it is in the middle of the week already and it's a chilly one, Fall has arrived in all her crispness, you can even smell it in the air.  I do love that smell,  wood smoke mixed in, ahhhhh, my favorite time of the year as it is many of yours out there.................Yesterday was a windy one but the sun was shining so outside I ventured and did some Autumn decorating. I had some tall cornstalks from a friend and they are really tall, the wind kept blowing down the old milk can I used to put them in, so Cam helped me with some wire to keep them from falling down, much better.  Pulled out my wooden wagon, placed  my pumpkins in with a  little orange watering can, the wonderful neighbor of mine let me pick branches of her berries so  I popped them  in the watering can and a sunflower head thanks to a bird that planted it for me :) ta da, a prim  Fall display.  On the bench I put my old enamel strainer with a pumpkin and straw  in it, pumpkin and black kitty and candle, not to sure if I will leave it like that, will see.  Hung a bunch of Indian corn on the  front door and then hung a big ole  wood pumpkin sign and crow on the fence that was once at  my Dad and Mom's house, had to take it, memories, and  that's about it for now. Went in the house and enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and The Voice..................Wishing you all a wonderful day, Fall Blessings Francine.
