Let's Explore a Early American Fall Home of Dee's

                                   What a wonderful way to open your door with a Pumpkins sign!
                Dee greeted me warmly with a smile.I could hardly wait to see her home again.

If your fortunate enough to meet kind people along your lifes path your a lucky person. I met Dee in our rug hooking group at Country Loft years ago. My first impression I had of Dee was she always had a smile on her face an infectious laugh and a great attitude! Dee's creative artistic eye is stamped all over her home and garden.I always loved when she brought in whatever she was working on at home to our rug hooking group to share.
Some people have the gift of making others feel welcome in their home that would be Dee. With a happy smile and a "Come on in." I was back in another time era for the fall.   What an enchanting glimpse of a way of life that makes your eyes constantly move drawn to see what's around the next corner in this special home.

I am on a quest for more Monarch butterflies in gardens so I brought a Milkweed plant for Dee’s front yard garden. Hopefully next spring she will have Monarchs dancing around her garden.
 So between a nice cup of tea and a almond dessert we had a nice visit and then we were off to see some homes her husband had built on the hill years ago. After that we went to the loft and I bought some milk paint and some applique needles.What a fun full day!  Thanks Dee.
