 One of my favorite things is my quilt collection – especially this time of the year! 



Another favorite is my chair I got for $7.50 at an auction this past weekend.

chair mos As always, my “mostess” favorite thing is God’s creation.

Your quilt collection is amazing! As the weather cools down, they will be much appreciated. Beautiful shot too of God's creation. I never tire of trying to capture the sunsets and sunrises with my camera. Truly magnificent. Hope your weekend is a good one.

Enjoy your weekend.

The montage of your quilts absolutely took my breath away for a moment. You are so blessed to have them. And I love the wood grain in that chair. Thanks for hosting the party.

I love your favorites, Laurie!

My post has to do with the ride we took in the country yesterday. J found the owner of the property, where we found the pear tree, and we went back today, for the pears. The plan is to make pear honey, just like his grandmother made, when he was a child. More about that in an upcoming post.

For our anniversary, which is today, I made a lunch of penne pasta with saffron, Italian sausage, onion, heavy cream and fresh Thyme. Oh my! We had a whole bottle of white wine with the meal and polished off the entire pot of pasta!! It's a wonder I can even write a comment! Needless to say...homemade Pear Honey will wait for another day.

Happy Weekend!

Blondie's Journal said...

Your quilt collection is beautiful, Laurie! I can't believe how many you need a whole closet just for them! I have a few favorites and we get a lot of use out of them in the winter.

Your chair is a real bargain. I would have fallen over had I seen that price!! Love your sunset pictures, too.

Happy Weekend!

Your sky looks much better than mine today. God has blessed us in the pacific northwest with rain rain rain! And grey grey grey....Just perfect for hunkering down by the fire and catching up with your blog. Vanna

Hi Laurie! What a lovely collection of quilts! I am from a family of mountian women who quilt...except me. :-( I need to learn! And that chair...gorgeous! And what a bargain! Love it! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

Sarah said...

Laurie, I thought I left a comment earlier though I don't see it. Clever way to spotlight the quilts. You have some beauties. Hope you'll showcase the whole quilt on some of these in the future. I've always wanted to make a flower basket quilt, but doubt that it ever happens. I don't think I have another quilt in me. LOL
Happy Weekend! ~ Sarah

Marlee said...

Beautiful quilts! I own one tattered quilt that my grandmother made and it is very special to me in spite of its condition. Great buy on that chair!

Your quilts are gorgeous... what treasures and that chair for $7.50 is a steal!
My grandmother made beautiful quilts. Now that I am older I wish I had been still long enough for her to teach me.

Love the quilt! Adore your Chair!!! Beautiful Sunset! What great favorites! Thank you so much for the card, it made my day! Still down, keep getting hurt, 4 times in last 3 week, Doc not going to like it. He said when I was there it would take a month or more to heal what damage I had done. Now it keeps on keeping on. lol Trying to be Good! Thank you so much for thinking of me!

Fantastic quilts! And, great bargain on the chair. I have an old chair/stool that I am thinking of painting and recovering. You may have just inspired me.

Beth said...

Your quilts are gorgeous, Laurie! Do you make them, or do you bargain hunt for them?

An Oasis in the Desert said...

What a wonderful quilt collection. I am relatively new to quilt-making, but absolutely love the art of it.

The Tablescaper said...

What an unbelieveable quilt collection, but that chair and for only $7.50 is an amazing find. I love the grain of the wood.

It's wonderful to have you participating in Seasonal Sundays.

Jacqueline said...

Your quilt collection is just lovely. I remember all of the beautiful quilts my mother had. Maybe someday I will begin that craft. I did one with blue jean pockets (the ones we wore in the 70s and 80s) but that is it. I really admire quilters and beautiful quilts.

Love the beautiful sky picture too.

Kat said...

Your quilt collection is gorgeous Laurie. I just love them. I used to drive through Amish country and drool over the craftsmanship of their quilts. Never could afford to buy one though :) Maybe I should have taken you with me - I can't believe what you paid for the chair! And of course your last photo is my favorite, nothing better than the glorious sky to lift your spirits. And it's FREE! Kat

KBeau said...

Your quilt collection is just beautiful, and I know you have the perfect spot for that chair. Hope you're having a blessed weekend.
