Well Halloween is Friday and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I went out into my neighborhood this weekend and took a few pictures of how people decorated their stoops for the Fall Season. We don't have many porches just front entryways. I was very surprised to see that there were only a few people that had the fall spirit this year. My parrot and buddy "Poppy" helped me with my Fall Decorating this year! Here is what it looks like around my house this time of the year.

Everything is Coming up Roses on Friday at Make Mine Pink

I've never seen a rose I didn't love. From the first blossom of spring, gently swaying in the breeze, to an intricately stitched needlepoint, rich in history, I love them all. Roses represent so many wonderful things and are often used to celebrate special milestones such as weddings, births and anniversaries. Roses have also been used throughout the centuries in estate and cottage gardens, home décor and fashion. Milliners used silk roses to embellish the finest hats, while seamstresses stitches the richest brocade drapes adorned with roses. Throughout the years, famous artists have studied and painted every aspect of the rose. Antique lithographs and post cards from the 1800s grace our homes today with their everlasting beauty while roses continue to gracefully fit every lifestyle and décor.

If you have a soft spot for roses, won't you please join us forPINK FRIDAY at Make Mine Pink on Friday October 24th. The boutiques at Make Mine Pink are pleased to present "Coming up Roses" I will be there!

Inklings Designs takes you on a drive along the Gulf Coast for Show and Tell

I just returned from a wonderful long weekend in Mexico Beach, FL. Southern Cruiser Bike Club had a bike rally there this weekend to earn money for St. Jude Hospt. in Memphis. We did some wonderful riding along the Gulf Coast and the views from our hotel room were beautiful. We rode to St. George Island past Historic Apalachicola. The weather was beautiful and the seafood was fresh! I just wanted to share the beach with you! Hope you enjoy it. Most of these pictures were taken from the back of Tom's Harley, except the ones on the beach.

View from our room!

And YES...I did get a massage!! WOW what a treat!!

What a cute Princess!

I took my girls, Isabella and India to a private showing of Beverly Hills Chihuahua in Gulf Breeze. It was a sold out showing and they even had to turn people and dogs away. There were over 100 dogs and owners that attended. It was put on by the Chihuahua Club of Gulf Breeze and the proceeds went to the Humane Society. They had wonderful door prizes and prizes for the 3 best dressed pooches...I guess you know I took home one of those prizes...a beautiful PINK collar and leash by Swarovski. I also won a wonderful door prize gift basket from one of the Vet's office in town. It was filled with lots of goodies for my babies. The movie was cute. Isabella slept through it but India watched the whole thing. A good time was had by all.
