Sorry I'm late!

I am really struggling with blogger's new posting pictures thing.

I don't know why...
I just can't seem to figure it out.

Maybe after the
Holiday Open House
I can take some time and teach myself how to do it!

Friday my hubs selected 2 random numbers for me as my give-back winners!

Here they are:#8

Lolo of Stig and Lolo fame

seriously...if you have not stopped by and met with this amazing lady
 please do so! She has such a great blog!

from my emails: # 42
Carol Bass
Carol is a new friend but I just discovered she has a blog too! So stop by and meet Carol too!

Just send me an email with your snail mail address and I will get your Autumn tote filled with goodies right out to you!
What's in them? Well, you will have to ask the winners!
I want them to be suprised!

A great big Thank you to everyone who played along!

I love to give presents!  And....Getting them not so bad either!

Autumn is such a busy time for me but I still love to get out and see all of the amazing color!
Usually, I don't have my camera but last night, as we were going to dinner...
My hubby pulled over so that I could snap a couple for you!

The field of corn was harvested yesterday and the trees that were hidden behind it came into view for the first time!
I think it is breathtaking....don't you?

Well, I must get back to work
But I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday Afternoon!


  1. You are not alone:) I don't like the new uploading way to do our photos from blogger. I wish we had the option of going back to the old way. I think we have to upload them all in from the last photo to the first - in that order. Good luck,
