MY FRIENDS ADDED TO MY FALL DECOR

I’m late posting, because I’ve been very busy this weekend.  I attended my 45th high school class reunion.  I wasn’t going to tell you it was the 45th, but then I decided my readers aren’t dumb.  They know how old I am.  They know that I’ve had the same picture of myself on my profile for four years, and it isn’t fooling any of you.   

I was fortunate enough to go to school with very clever and generous friends.  My classmate, Carter, and his wife, Suzie, brought me this fabulous potpourri lamp.  Look at that, it has a glass plate with our class emblem on it!  Isn’t that the cutest thing?  I can’t wait to show it to you again at Christmas time.  Yep, that glass plate is removable, and you won’t believe the Christmas glass plate.

But you’ll have to wait until Christmas to see that, because I’ve got a lot of other things to show you in this post.  Carter and Suzie also brought me this set of adorable reproduction Halloween cards, and

these cute cupcake picks.  (I told you my friends were generous!)

Do you remember my post here, about my lonely velvet pumpkin made by my talented friend Susie? (Yes, I have several friends named “Susie, Suzie, and Susan”.  Must have been popular in the year we were born.

Susie not only brought me more velvet pumpkins.  She brought velvet acorns too.  Just look how pretty they are.

Having Susie visit is like having Santa come to my house, because she brings so many gifts.  Susie’s gifts have been added to the buffet in the sunroom (posted about here), and

aren’t those napkins she brought me just perfect for my Halloween bar tray?  But that’s not all Susie brought me.  Remember my fortune telling table posted here?

Susie’s talents are shown in tags and cards she made on this table.

Susie’s gifts also included this cute little treat box (I told you my friends were generous!).

I added the treat box to a little vignette I haven’t shown on my blog before.

My friend, Susan, brought me this beautiful bouquet of sunflowers.

I would show you pictures of the three cakes that were brought to my house, but we I ate all of them!  I am so blessed to have such generous friends in real life and in Blogville.  My Blogville friends stop by and leave such generous and lovely comments.  A huge thank you to Carter, Suzie, Susie, and Susan and to all of my Blogville friends.  I am linking (very belatedly) to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper and to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  laurie
