Gizzy and the Fall décor…

What a week! I'm working hard this week on our countys annual Habitat for Humanity Golf Outing. This is my 10th year as event coordinator and while I enjoy it... it's a lot of work. The outing is Wednesday and I will be glad when it's over.

I have been a very busy lady working hard on the fall decor and the distrubution of pumpkins. lol. I am happy to report they have all found a home and I need more!

Here's a little look back at the beginings of decorating...

Gizzy watched diligently from the wingback as I tore the house apart and then put it back together decorating for fall.


With a critical eye “I’m not sure that goes there Mom.”


Then she moved down to the hearth and stared at that crow for at least 2 hours. lol


And she stared…


“Why are you doing this Mom? Why must you put that bird there to mock us?”


“Did you guys see this?”


“I will eat you when Moms not looking.”


Eventually I moved it because she could not tear herself away from it. LOL. I felt bad for her!

The beginnings…

So... theres the framework!
I’ll be posting the finished results soon!

Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats

Gizzy is one determined cat! That is the cutest thing that I have seen in a long time. LOL Beautiful fireplace dispay! I like the way the tree casts a nice warm glow on all of the wonderful fall items. Look forward to seeing more. Makes me think that since I have the day off, I should start hauling my stuff out of the side closet. I always start to late!

Loved seeing the photos of Gizzy staring at that crow! Such a hoot! Loved Gizzy's coments too. Such a sweet kitty! Reminds me of a kitty I had a couple of years ago who I miss very much.

Those captions with the pictures are hysterical. I wonder what goes through
their little furry heads? Was your
kitty trying to figure out if it was
real? The house looks great.
Here's what our cat likes to do.
He has an autumn ritual around here,
when I put mini gourds and mini pumpkins on the mantel and the leaf garland,
The Elder Statesman gets up there and one
by one, slowly pushes them to the edge and watches them fall to the floor.
