Hi Celestina, I would love to enter your giveaway and I do follow you because I love looking at the wonderful things that you make and your decorating. I hope that the rain has let up down your way. I have family around the Dallas and Houstom area. The weather has been so crazy this year, they say it is because of global warming. I don't think I really believe that. Take care Your Missouri Friend.

Beedeebabee said...

What a beautiful pumpkin! All of your things are so pretty!...I was browsing around your blog and I noticed the photo of you and Mrs. Bush. How wonderful to be able to paint special ornaments for a White House tree! I saw a special once on how the White House prepares for the holidays, and I was just fascinated, especially when they started throwing "snow" on all the trees...indoors! I really like President and Mrs. Bush. Boy...can I ever ramble! ;) Paulette

Shirl said...

Your previous post with all that rain, wish you could send it our way. We are so dry here the ground is cracking! Take care, don't know where this summer went to! I'd love to be in your drawing for a chance to win!

Oh Celeste I adore these pumpkins!! I've thought of you often but with my schooling and my two sons both in college this fall. one at my university, one at the other, it gets crazy! I think I know everyones schedule now!! I hope this finds you doing fabulous! When I repainted the living room the first piece I put out was my adorable bird house to think of you! Sadly I still haven't tackled my kitchen, such a long project, but hope to still soon. I can't wait to put up mu piece from you and fill it with frilly rose hankies! I hope you know the joy your works bring to me. When ever I have a bad day I always stop to look at my sifter, I think my most fave piece and smile. Sending love your way, and yep, do believe I am a follower! Love, Lori
