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
