WOW! I Have Been Off The Grid!

I have no good explanation... 
It's been a busy crazy fall.. Seems as I work one thing off my plate, another issue finds it's self there..
Some is self-inflicted...but still always busy...
We have had a "bags" trip... Different this year for sure.. good, not great... but still good.
It's just not the same without our Queen.  She was missed as was another bag dealing with issues too.. Though Kathy did make it up for a over night stay....
The shop is my escape.  Keeps me out of trouble... or at least it should be...
I have treated myself to a few goodies too...
So let me share those first...
One would hope for one wall basket... I was lucky enough for a instant collection!  I am a lucky gal!  I love them and they look great next to my other hanging big basket I found last year. The little glass cabinet is new from a estate sale back in July...  
So we humored ourselves without our Queen... So we brought our own! 
Here is Darla who the Queen would drive down with, didn't want to be lonely, so she had her own Queen!
Yes, She did travel with us some!  HEHEHE...
The perfect fall view from our deck where we stayed... it was perfect with the color!
I came across this in a yard... I will be making one of these this year!  Love it out of old wood screens!
OLM'S yard needs one of these for sure!
Both our Queen's for this year... LOL
Margaritas make everything better!  For a little bit at least.  We visited this restaurant 3xs... here Kathy is with us!!!!  
Then, there is the shop...busy, it is the holiday season now... At least in the retail world... I tried to screw up my knee during my winter set up by trying to fall off the step stool.  That gave me a bit of a scare.. wound up in the E.R.. being checked for a blood clot.. No Clot... YEAH!  BUT, now I am on anit-inflammatory, it's helping... so hoping it heal up fast... who has time during the holidays for that...
So just a quick peek at the start of set up...



Oh how I love feather trees!!!!


Lastly... I did finally add a few creations to my early work page on Friday too.  It seems the one thing that has been put on the back burner has been creating... I need to fix that and quick... 
First I need to get all my dad's health care fixed.. Things are changing.. and it all falls on me to make the decisions...But, I am a good, I think I have it narrowed down to 3 choices and I have to Thursday to figure it out... so I have a few more days! LOL.  
I will try and visit. I haven't read any one's blogs in weeks and weeks...sigh.... and I will try and be back real soon!
