A Little Bit Of This And A Whole Lot Of That

Hello Friends,
I hope everyone is well today. Prayers to all  who may  be affected by Hurricane Sandy today. We had a cold front meet her as she passed by our coast, as a result it is very cool and wet today here in NC.

We had a Wedding Anniversary earlier this month, This is the cake I baked to celebrate.

 Anniversary Roses .I love yellow roses!

These crystal mushrooms are inspired by a Pinterest pic I saw.

I found the instructions for this pumpkin made from a book on Pinterest also.

Next ,are some pics of  Fall color taken at nearby Kerr Lake.

 Sunset Pics

An old  church we passed on the way to the Lake.

Over the weekend we carved some pumpkins. Owl carving.

Also Hello Kitty and Maple Leaf carvings.

 Happy Fall Y'all!

I will leave you with this wonderful Bible verse :

"Give  Thanks to the Lord for he is good, His love endures forever!"
Psalm 118:1

A Visit to the NC State Fair

 Hello Friends!Thanks so much to all who left the wonderful Birthday Greetings last week. This week I have some pics from my visit to the North Carolina State Fair! I love the fair & I hope you enjoy visiting via these photos!

This was the 2012 Fair theme.

The Dorton arena , where all the concerts are held for Fair enterainment.

Flags outlining the fence  walls leading to the entrance of the fair.What a beautiful day we had!

All the decorations in this pic are all natural and produced in North Carolina.

This beautiful tree was decorated mostly with various squash , all grown in NC. I had to take a double look at this tree ,at first I thought it had regular ornaments .

 The Waterfall Wall, a great meeting- up spot for families.


The leaves here have gotten underway changing. Most all of NC has beautiful fall color , but our mountains are famous for it.

Cool inflated toys

  I love this gigantic oak  tree.

      View of crowds

Cool Sculpture in art contest

   Classic fair rides

  Hubba Bubba the Clown

Agriculture is big in NC.


Fall time in NC means Fair Time . Happy Fall Y'all!

I will leave you with this wonderful Bible verse :

" God sent his only begotten son into the world,that we might live through him ." 
1 John 4-9
