Odds and Ends


Remember this photo? The new header photo is the SAME tree taken on 11-1-08. The photo here was taken 3 weeks ago. What a difference 3 weeks makes, huh?


Triplet flower girls with their grandmother. They are carrying the ever-popular "kissing balls" or "pomanders". The one in the middle didn't really want to be there; or maybe she was leery of me. Ha.


Another cutie patootie, also holding a kissing ball. This (and the ones above) are made with Bells of Ireland. This shade of green is very popular now.

An overview of the chair markers.


A close-up of an arrangement used on a head table for a wedding reception. I didn't do this one.

That little cutie was disappointed about something!
Your header is beautiful! Yes, we seem to be down to hours here and making a difference. Many trees are bare.
I haven't been here in awhile so I'm glad you paid a visit to my deer and I found my way back.

I think the little girl in the photo alone looks like Audrey Hepburn probably looked as a child.

We were out on a pointless errand today (going to a flea market that wasn't there, with 2/3 of the roads blocked for a political rally), but at least I got to enjoy the fall colors. Neat pictures and glad you pointed 'em out!

Happy (belated) birthday!! And it was so great to have you & Mr. K over, you make a darling couple.
