I asked…I received.
One day last week, I put on facebook that I wanted cotton. Straight from the field cotton, if possible. I didn’t care how much, just a little would be great.
A preciously sweet young friend of mine messaged me and said that she lived across the street from a cotton field and that she would bring me some. Bless her heart, I know she thinks I am one strange lady wanting cotton to decorate my house with.
She brought me a great big bunch…roots and all.
Soft, beautiful, fluffy, white cotton….it’s a good thing.
Hope you are all doing wonderful!
Another quick thing….did you know that God is wild about you? He is! The book of Psalms says that The King is enthralled by your beauty!!! Just wanted to make sure you knew that today.

How are you?
I am great!!
Do you have favorite little areas in your home?
I have a little corner in my living room where I love to sit. It has a favorite table of mine where I like to sit and study, check my computer, read, etc. The table was built by my sister friend's husband, Shannon. It was actually my birthday present from him. Yes, I was so thankful for a gift made by such a wonderful carpenter and friend.
I also love the little gallery wall above where I sit. Several of my favorite things are hanging right there for me to look at.
The burlap heart was made by my youngest daughter.
The little gown was worn by my father many years ago. The old photo is him.
I love pillows!
Are you surprised that 9 is my favorite number?
The olive bucket was a gift from my sister friend, Becky.
I found my cow “artwork” in an old encyclopedia. Stuck it with tape to an old frame that I painted chalkboard paint on.
Made this little lampshade with torn strips of an old white sheet. Love the casualness of it. (it’s safe)
This old paper wreath was a first project of mine about three years ago. I am still loving it!
Love being able to sit in the living room here in my cozy little corner and do what needs to be done. And, love when my family are all in here with me.
Be blessed my friends.

I have so enjoyed having a few extra minutes this week to get back in touch with my blogging friends.
Just wanted to share a few more photos of fall around our house.
These pictures are from our dining/school room.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I have to say how refreshing it is for me to not feel “obligated” (for lack of a better word) to have to blog two or three times a week.
Who was I obligated to?
I have let myself off the hook and it’s freeing to me to just blog when I want to and not because I feel like I have to.
Again…all pressure was pressure I put on myself.
Hey, let me tell you real quickly what I am doing tomorrow through Saturday.
I am going to be helping at THIS amazing pop-up Barn Sale hosted by City Farmhouse out of Franklin, Tennessee.
Who I am helping?
Linsey from LLH Designs.
Linsey and I became friends around this time last year when God truly brought us together. Like really put us in the same store at the same time and so on and so on. Really cool story.
I cannot wait!!
I will be helping Linsey set up her booth and work it on Friday and Saturday. She thinks I am doing her a favor by helping. I am trying to explain to her how amazingly excited I am and that she is really doing me a favor by allowing me to help her.
There will be vendors from all over that I hope to meet. Joy from Savvycity Farmer will even be there. Can’t wait to meet her.
Excitement…excitement. I love the excitement and the adventure.
