Look What I Won and The Party is Over

I couldn't resist posting one last picture of our little "Max." I hopeCreed is thrilled to see himself as a character in the book. My amazing husband was at work again. Now the giveaway.
It is rare that I win anything. But, look what arrived in the mail just before I left for my quilt retreat. Isn't it beautiful? It is all handmade by Loretta. It's part of a pay it forward giveaway. My next post will be number 200 and I will Pay-it-forward. Stay tuned for my giveaway.
Here is the party is over part of the blog. Here is a picture of the only things I bought at Round Top in Texas. I love these bottles that contain textile dyes from a Textile plant in the South. Candice bought a few as well. I used them as part of my Halloween decor but will probably keep them up somewhere in my house year round.
I collect all the decorations in my dining room and then pack them up. Most of the decor is pictured. It is such a relief to get it all put away. However, it does look a little emptier around empty in fact. I didn't get a chance to put up any Fall decor and I really don't like much of what I have. I put most of it in the DI (like Goodwill) pile. (Steph would be proud of me...she thinks I have too much stuff so I'm working on it. Less is better anyway.)

Did I say less is better? Well, maybe not when it comes to Halloween decorations. :)

Holy Cow Kim! That's a lot of Halloween -- it's fabulous! Such a pretty towel -- I love a pretty collection of white embroidered hand towels!

Wow! You have lots of Halloween, no wonder you don't have much Thanksgiving/fall stuff. Besides, the Halloween stuff is so much cuter!

I also collect all my decorations from around the house and stage them in the dining room before packing...I find it is easier to see everything and pack it, it takes me a few days to collect everything and I can put my hands over my eyes as I pass the dining room.

Wow! Now that's a lot of Halloween decorations!!!!!!!!!! I love your bottles - definitely keep them up all year, they are too pretty to pack away!

Hi Kim, Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! My wall color is granite dust by valspar. It is a grayish blue and I love it! Good luck picking a color - I know it's tough!

I love your decor... don't get rid of it. I did when we moved, gave a bunch to my daughters and the DI. I have replaced it all.... I didn't plan to but I kept seeing cute things and knew I had room. I just posted my 200th post. Can't believe I've been posting that much. Love your stuff.
