First Day of Fall and A Birthday!!!

It has finally arrived at 5:05 a.m......Fall!!!  Everyone was patiently waiting for this season.  The leaves aren't turned here like in the picture.  The temps are nice....in the high 60's or low 70's.  Love it!!!!!
 Then at 6:15 a.m. on this date, I arrived!!!!!  And on a Friday too!!!!!  But the day I came, it was cold, rainy and it even snowed!!!!!  Maybe that's why I hate snow so much!!!!????
 Was going to spend my day shopping.  My daughter, who always go to my other daughter's on the 4th weekend of Sept....they couldn't make it work.  Last night, I get a call, we made it work and we're going.  Now the other daughter, Amy, they just bought a house this past spring and all she wanted was swags to decorate with in their new home.  Well, completely forgot all about it.  When we went out in June, I asked what I could bring, as she likes home baked goods, but all she said was.....my swags!!!!!  Well, guess who didn't go and buy anything!!!!  You guessed it....me!!!!  I did have one arch sway and made it up in sunflowers so took everything and made it there!!!!  So, when plans came together, I was making swags last night and finished the Steeler one this morning.  They are on their way as I write this!!!!
 This one is a surprise.  Amy doesn't know she's getting this one!!!!  I should make her a Penguin one, as they are Penguin fans too, even though they live in Philladelphia Eagle/Flyers territory!!!!!
 I got a few of my fall things out.  The candle, candle ring and holder are from Deb/Crows on the Cupola as a birthday gift.  I got more things, but not in this fall photo!!!!  That's a Sept. angel and a bell with astors on, as that is the Sept. flower.  A scarecrow I got at a craft show and a pumpkin bowl I got on sale at a store and I put fall flowers in.  Did you guess....I love flowers...any kind of flowers....I love them!!!!  I can't go to a craft store and not come home with more flowers.  Like those flowers on the swags....had them, just not the swags!!!!! 

Hope everyone is having a fun, fall, fabulous Friday.
Thanks for stopping by.
