A Fall Kind Of Week..

Not sure where this picture came from but it makes me smile.
The chipmunks have been very busy here. I heard one storing nuts in our down spout! I knocked on it he came flying out and lots of acorns behind him.

Not the best picture but I am done with the Halloween rug.
I took out the orange gate and chose the same purple as in the house. Much much better. Now to ship it off to Sweet B.

We have had a few Turkeys come thought the yard daily for the past few days. I hope it is bugs they are eating in the yard.

A little north of us they are at peak but we are not quite there.
I did get a walk in, I came down with a horrid cold and it was 4 full days of ick..

But Friday it seemed to dry up and get much better but of course Sat Husband came down with it. He got in to see the specialist on this coming Tues so I hope he feels well enough to get what ever test they want. This is an old stone wall that was on our property when we bought it. We had to break through to put the driveway in but have left the rest I just love it.

I was able to put a few Halloween things out. We don't get trick or theaters it is just for us.

Sat I got out of the house for a few hours and hit a couple of thrifts. I feel like I rescue the handmade items. these are 2 hand thrown bowls for 1.00. 

These two pieces are made by a woman in the next town. I was completely shocked to see them. I have one snow-woman I have bought before at full price from her. I have several of her sheep she made out of lambs wool coats. I just could not leave these behind and no I did not need them. but the bear I believe is mohair 5.00 each. 

I have been collecting acorn tops to felt some acorns of my own.
I have found I do not like needle felting so not sure how many I will do.

Fall is truly my time of year I just wish it were longer.
If you have an extra prayer for husband and his appointment we could use it. Thank you for your sweet visit.
Have a wonderful week!

I’m glad you got over the cold and I hope your husband doesn’t miss his test,,,,We came down with that cold too, miserable thing, the photo of the chipmunk is hilarious! You found some great buys in thrift store!

The purple gate is much more eye appealing and sure Miss B will enjoy it very much.

I like the gate much better! I never would have thought of purple but it is perfect.
Very cool stone wall on your property.
I hope you are feeling better and prayers and hugs for hubby.

Lucky Miss B. for getting a hand-hooked rug from her grandma. I'm sure she will cherish it.
I'm glad you got over your cold and I hope David will be well enough to get his test done. You got some good bargain on those Christmas items.

David is still on my prayer list so he's getting some prayers from me and my husband every night.
We had a light patchy frost the other morning but I'm still harvesting from the garden.
Take care and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Hugs, Julia

The rug is so adorable and I know Miss B will love and have it forever! I decorate for all the holidays but I must admit I love Halloween the best. We don't get trick or treaters out here in the country but I love to look at all of it. My kids do come for our annual Halloween family gathering and would miss the decorations if I didn't do anything! Cute finds as always. I love your thrifting!! Have a good week and I'm sending up prayers for your hubby and I'm glad you're feeling better.

Another touch of purple is perfect for the Halloween rug. Nice! How beautiful your days must be there now. Wouldn't we all love to hang on to the fall just a little longer, but... I hope your week is good. said...

Prayers for your husband- for answers and comfort♥️

Your rug looks sweet. We dont have trick or treaters at our house either...thats why we pass out candy at our store. Over 200 last year. The leaves are not at peak here yet. Love the turkeys! Janice

Isn't it nice to see the loveliness of fall? We know it's coming but when it comes we are in awe of its beauty ... like we've never seen it before.
I like the name of your blog: Acorn Hollow. Seems like a pleasant place to spend some time.
