Grandpa's Corn Shucker

Hi All,
I am back from Fla where I spent a few days, closing up the condo we rented, and bringing my Mom and Dad home, from their stay there. I am happy to be home and ready to "nest in" for Fall and Winter! I wanted to show you my Grandpa's old corm shucker, that I had my carpenter turn into a planter/coffee table.
 Grandpa and I used to use this old shucker, alot...
 We put three side on it, so we can put our feet up or a cup of coffee...
 I am going to love decorating her for the changing seasons...
Here she is under the pergola...

Hi All,
I finished my Fall mantel so I wanted to share :)
 I love changing up this old mantel season after season...
 I love the whimsical pumpkin man...
 I have had this little trick or treat window pane for a long time...
 The Jim Shore figurine is a gift from my parents...
Hope you are all having a wonderful fall day!

Mother/Daughter Weekend

Hi All,
My daughter just moved to Bloomington, IN. I spent the weekend with her and we had so much fun! She is going to work for awhile and then might return to school at Indiana University.  What a beautiful campus and town.
Here is the little place we ate the first night.  It was so nice sitting outside enjoying the weather... 
 Yes, Mama brought a new hat to daughter.  It is handmade by my friend Mercedes.  She is so creative.  Here is a link to her etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/shop/MaryMercedes
 Saturday morning I went to daughter's restaurant ,where she is employed and had breakfast.  She's a goofball, sometimes :)
 I enjoyed the Farmer's market...



 

 Here is where I stayed.  The Grant Street Inn.  Wanna come inside???
 I loved my room!
 So clean and comfortable...
 Pretty fabrics and private bath...
 
 They have a chef that puts together a great brunch...
 Grilled veggies...
 For the meat lover...
 Homemade bread and jams...
 The cute cupboard...
On the drive to and from, I always pass this farm in the hills of Indiana.  I wanted to get a closer pic for you, but the husband was outside doing stuff:(  Her front porch is so cute with red accents.  Maybe next time, I can get closer!
 
Hope you enjoyed seeing pics of my weekend with my daughter.
