Wonderful Wildlife

Hello, blogging buddies....
I was out taking pictures, the 
other day and I thought you just
might enjoy seeing the 
wonderful awesome carved
animals in downtown Broken
Bow, OK....They have been 
redoing all the sidewalks and 
putting in wheel chair ramps 
and raised flower beds, with these 
wonderful carved statues of
wildlife....I have seen a smaller
 bear holding a "Welcome"
sign, that I just might have to
buy to put on my front porch.

I had to get two views of this eagle!

Isn't this little one cute?

 Love this turkey!

There's even a fish! 

I do believe this one is a hawk.

Better view of it's face...

These last two must be the
latest, because they don't have
and flowers in their beds....I 
love the owls...
This beaver is so cute with 
his buck teeth!  There are still 
some empty beds, so I imagine
there are more to come.

I hope you enjoyed the tour 
and the wildlife!
I have been working on the rest
of the kitchen cabinet doors 
and the drawers
and I think I see light at the
end of the tunnel!  A few more
days and I will have them all 
done and the trim all done!
My hubby has some more to 
do, before I can finish it all...
I need to make curtains and
also a Halloween costume for
the contest that they have, 
where he works.....

Well, it is late and I better 
get to bed, I have lots to do

Also, I won the gingerbread man
over at Grandma Kringles! I was
so tickled, I was going to buy one,
because I didn't think I would win 
it and I like to decorate my 
with gingerbread men for 
Christmas. It sure made my day!
Thanks again, Grandma Kringle,
I can't wait to get him!

Besides working on the kitchen 
and some of the dining room, I 
have been walking and let me tell
ya that my legs are telling me to
slow down!......I was out working
in a flower bed this afternoon, so
that might help stretch the 
muscles in my legs, they sure 
are getting tight....

Well, I am off to bed, you all take
care and have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by....

Fall Decorating and Wonderful Gift in the Mail

I hope you all are having a
great weekend. I have gotten
a little Fall decorating done 
and thought I would share it 
with you.

 This picture doesn't look very clear,
but you can see what I did in front
of the house.....I usually put the 
scarecrow  on the porch, but I  think
I like him out in the yard, you can 
see him better.  The shrubs hide him 
too much when he's on the porch.

Closer up picture.....

 I got a package in the mail,
from Traci of York Mountain
Primitives and in it was this 
adorable little Jack-O-Lantern,
wearing a witches hat!
Traci sent everyone something
handmade, that left a comment
on her blog, one day.  I didn't
know it, until after I had left
 my comment that she was doing
that, what a wonderful surprise,
it was!  I love it Traci, that was
really sweet of you! Stop on over
to her blog by clicking here
While you are there, check out
her website, she does some 
wonderful prims!  
Thanks again, Traci....I sure
love my gift in the mail!
Now, I need to do some Fall
decorating in the house....I 
still have lots of stuff all over 
the house, because of the work
in the kitchen and dining area.

I better get back to work on
some things for the kitchen and
then tomorrow, I am going to 
get back to work on the rest of
the doors, my one week break 
ended up being 3 wks.....week 
days only, I still have been 
working on the kitchen on the
weekends......This project has
been a lot of work, but will be
so worth it, when it is done.

You all take care and have a
wonderful week!
