Autumn Blessings and Off to the 1800's

My sweet and talented friend Betty sent me some wonderful handmade blessings in the mail.  This Jack O'lantern is so cool and is mounted to an awesome painted box and is filled with treats.  

Also, this darling sheep stuffed and on old wood thread spools with a cute little wool tail and ear.  

Even more a great pumpkin pin with a little key attached and two great smelling cowgirl soaps, an awesome necklace made of wool applique on one side and cross stitch on the other and a gift card to Freddie's.  
My goodness the box was packed to the brim with so much wonderful things.  Thank you Betty you are such a generous gal and such a dear friend!

Well, I have been packing the truck and the cargo trailer along with Danny's help!  I lack just a few things and if I forget something oh well :)
The little girls have been sick so have been over helping Jenn out as much as I can and hoping by tomorrow they are ALL feeling better.....Momma Jenn included!  It is hard having sick babies and not feeling well yourself.  

Sloan has had his grandparents on his Mom's side up staying at his house and his PaPa fell and broke 2 ribs so they have extended their stay for a few more days.  Praying he gets better real soon.  Tomorrow after school I promised Sloan we will go get one more snowcone before I head off to Missouri.   I'm going to miss those kiddos and of course the rest of the family!  Good thing we have all this wonderful technology to keep in touch.

I will try to update my blog and show you what is happening!  Wishing you all a Happy Autumn :)

Happy Trails....Ginger

You lucky gal to get such nice goodies from sweet Betty. The edging on the hooked sheep looks like that taught me by Betsy Reed which I posted on my blog. Just love that technique and adds something special to a piece to make it look primitive.

Sorry about grandpa.

Wonderful pieces and like the spool idea. I have been keepings ones I find in the thrifts and have some sheep with bad legs, so nice idea to redo them with. I hope you have a fun and safe trip.
