It has been awhile since my last "My World" post. We are still without water (awaiting an estimate) so everything seems to take twice as long to accomplish. No wonder the pioneers spent most of their days putting food on the table and "tidying up".
I am determined not to let the enemy of my soul have his way and get discouraged at how long this is taking. No... God truly is in control and He continues to teach me lessons. Not the least of which is how fortunate we are to be born after indoor plumbing was invented! ;)
However, the trees are now in full color and they are beautiful. I had my three month diabetic checkup at the doctor's office this morning and thanked God it was on a such beautiful October day.
I was thrilled to find this D. E. Stevenson book at the Mission's thrift store for $1.50! Now if I could only find Fletcher's End!

Decorating by Tweaking
|This now resides in the dining area as it did once before.|
The changing around came after I brought the large spider plant in from the porch. Funny how that happens. One little item can bring on major changes like the rectangular table moved to the left of the Autumnal print in the Study and the tall shelf being moved to the dining area.
I learned to love the look of silver from the original Victoria magazine. I've collected pieces over the years at thrift stores very cheap. People just don't want the bother of polishing them these days.
These are in need of a good polishing now that they are on the buffet again. (When we have indoor plumbing!)
My grandchildren gave me the kitty many years ago and you may know I collect bears. I have for a long time. Most are now in the family room again but I kept her here so the kitty will have a friend.
|Old bottle love meets chicken love.|
So... it all started when Hubby brought home this box from the store, thinking he could use it in the garage. The top photo shows what happened. It was love at first sight between kitty and her new dwelling.
So it now sits in my Study with an old "cutting quilt" in the bottom. She loves it. I figure it will be a good place for her to curl up for long winter's naps.
