Fall "tisses"

Fall is in the air even though it is still pretty warm here.
I put this together the other day with a simple grapevine wreath, a
sprig of "berries" and two different wired ribbons. I especially love the leafy
patterned one. It is a gauzy fabric with coppery metallic leaves painted on it. I thought it
was gorgeous with the green ribbon behind it.
Total cost? $8.00 (walmart)


And I took this picture tonight. We were over at my parent's house for dinner
with my Grandpa. We like to go over and "hang out" with him all to ourselves
when they are away. I think he thinks we are babysitting him but he's just a
great guy and we love to be with him!!
Ivy is especially admiring. Here she was on the porch and asked him for a "tiss"
from where he sat in the kitchen.

That "anonymous" was Steve...

Yes, Wendy is doing much better and she said she is thankful that this came on so suddenly and she didn't have all the extended periods of pain that usually are associated with gall bladder problems. Thanks for praying!

Aww, that is so sweet!

The wreath IS gorgeous. That ribbon in particular. On Monday I may have a look for it at my Walmart, it's so pretty! Good job on the wreath.

Thanks for wondering where I was. :) You could always ask Kelli to call me and tell me to get my act together and blog ;)
I did blog tonight and explained the computer issue, which is resolved, and I look forward to jumping back into the blogging world.
Take care,
Melissa W.

I was at Walmart yesterday and looked for the ribbon. I didn't see it in the regular ribbon aisle, but perhaps the fall/seasonal ribbon is in a different place. I'll keep looking. :)

The wreath is beautiful... you're a very skilled bow-maker! ;o) Mine never turn out that nice.

The picture of Ivy with your grandfather is just precious.

And I was getting all excited about the possibility of five new children for you until I saw the "just kidding" - and you explained that it was your hubby.
