Welcome friends it's October at Dee's home in California

                                                      Come on in friends and family


Take off your shoes grab a cup of tea picture yourself sitting in a girlfriends home and just relax. It's fall at Dee's home. Monday I went over to show her how my primitive hook rugs are progressing and as usual my friend Dee was so encouraging of my rugs We both love to share what were working on and always I get great ideas to run home with. Dee has a great personality she is so bubbly has a great laugh! I love having friends with such positive ways of looking at Life.Like all of us bloggers she has    so much enthusiasm for all her projects it can't help but rub off on you.
From Dee's love for finding a good thrift store bargain to her endless stream of friends and family that visit her home she is truly a blessed woman Dee doesn't carve as much as she use to but she still whittles a heart or a pumpkin or two.I brought over a succulent plant for her to enjoy in her garden.
 We both seem to talk at once when were visiting and always laugh alot. Of course in the middle of talking there is always time for a little cup of orange sherbet and a shortbread cookie.
Dee is so lucky when it comes to thrift store shopping she found the cutest chair and touched it up and she loves it. Her warm and comfy home as always is filled with pumpkins this time of year.I loved the pumpkins she carved and the birdhouses she made from scratch.Enjoy!

                                                Dee made the cute pumpkin sign and hearts
                                                   She loves to carve hearts                   


                                                                Her thrift store find

                                                                I loved her wheat stalks
                                                               another find at the thrift store 


                                                               A birdhouse she made
                                                                  her carved hearts

                                                                    aged pumpkins

                                I wonder if Emily her kitty is looking out the window

                                                                    I loved this pillow

                                                                another pumpkin she made

I love this piece of furniture it's really old.

                                                     This smaller birdhouse she made for a

                                                                          by Dee

                                                         Another pumpkin made by Dee

                                         Only Dee would put a pumpkin a cross and a abalone shell together

I love all your posts about Dee's home! Thank you for sharing! I really like it that she lives here in CA, not especially famous for having a lot of prim homes. There's hope for me!

Hi Mary her husband built a lot of homes in the area that have that early american touch.

Saundra said...

It is always a pleasure to visit Dee with you. I caught a glimpse of a couple great looking hooked rugs which were beneath items you photographed. Would love to see the whole thing one day when you visit again. The pillow was pretty.


Larkrise garden girl said...

Farm Girl said...

What a fun place, lots of inspiration here. I wanted to tell you, no matter the trial I go through, the trial I went through with my daughter was the one that was harder than anything I have ever experienced in my life. I pray for you because I know that no how hard it is to go through trials with your kids. Thank you for stopping by today.

Larkrise garden girl said...

Thank you Farm girl I so appreciate prayers and sometimes it does not feel so hard when the trials you go thru in this Life are shared by a kindness a simple prayer and sometimes just knowing others feel for you with no words said. Have a great weekend!
