Topped it with a few silk leaves and a small (FAKE) poopie pumpkin....
and surrounded it with a larger poopie pumpkin and a little white FAKE pumpkin.....
Scattered a few silk fall leaves a little wooden duck and a candle and WAA LAAA a centerpiece for the kitchen table! I can see all kinds of ideas to do with this for the holidays! Joy, joy, happy, happy dance.

of the tray on the coffee table with my earrings I left there. (What everyone doesn't leave their earrings in random places??)
My first glance at her drawing (see first photo for a closer look) I thought she had drawn glasses laying on the tray, but then I looked at the tray and realized my earrings were there and that was what she had drawn.
She's priceless along with her art....I think we'll keep her and her masterpiece!

Nesting Place is having a party and I'm here to share my part...
I have just a wee bit of fake greenery on my waaaaaaaay up there shelves in my kitchen. Seems innocent enough...
Then on the fireplace mantle the lovely silk narcissus bulbs (thrift find $3). Many people DO think they are real...sometimes.
I found this neat metal urn at the local thrift store for about a couple of bucks and put some (fake) sticks and grass in it on top of the TV . The minute I put it up there DD declared I copied it from the Nesting Place.
This is a little dried arrangement on a side table in the living room. Also a thrifty at a couple of bucks too. And my favorite son-in-law in the background.
Now this is the biggest poopette yet. THE ENTIRE WASH BASIN ON MY FRONT PORCH IS FAKE!!!!!!!!! My children didn't even notice until a year after I did it and my husband even spread a blanket over it during the winter to keep it from FREEZING!! So I think this wins the prize as a fooler of fakes. Here's a closer look...
In defense of the last of my confessions to the society of POOPIE....I usually try to have fresh flowers around whenever possible and some live plants too. Tomorrow I'll give you a little glimpse of my real greens.

Everyone who meets him falls in love with him. He is the geniune jewel of a precious heart...very loving, so forgiving and a true servant even at his young age.
He's fun to play with and especially fun to get a laugh out of or play a joke on.
He has made a special place in his heart for his new siblings and gets along beautifully with them both.
D-bo is a big piece of this sweet family and seems to have the best time when he's right in the middle of everything going on.
He loves to go to the farm and I think he might even like spending time at Mamaw and Papaw's too.
We love you!!

With good friends....this is one of my top favorites. We call these friends the M&M's because both of their names start with the letter M. I have to be their friend forever because they know way too much about me and I would have to commit murder if I couldn't be their friend. (Just remember that girls) They wouldn't let me take their picture at lunch today, so I had to draw from a stock photo I had. Elder M thought the outfit she had on today was somewhat Strawberry Shortcakish ...something to do with the baby doll sleeves and the latest hair coloring. But she looked smashing as always for REAL... They are both sweethearts and would do anything for me...I think, but might not after this blog.
Any way this is where we went. And it was very yummy. In my next life I will marry a Mexican man with a mother who can cook or that owns his own restaurant. Mexican food is by far my very favorite food. And as luck would have it I'm married to someone who as he ages is not doing so gracefully with this fine cuisine.
A certain someone from the fine east Texas town of Gilmer enjoys a dose of the "squirt butter" as my family calls it. Although she uses it in the most peculiar way...I think. And no I don't want any, thank you.
Well, that's it for this weeks Friday Favorite...there's just one problem with this favorite...if I do it very often I'm definitely going to have to join this club.
Have a great weekend!

The lady said I should paint it but I think it looks pretty good in it's weathered state....stay tuned as I have an idea in mind for it.
And then there was this little pretty. Suppose to be a plant stand but I'm thinking of using it for a bedside table in the "guest" room. After I get it all together I'll post that too.
Beside these, I got another corner plant stand for $1 and two pieces of vintage tupperware. I was already in my car with it started when the lady ran out to me and had this lovely box (all for $1). There are 3 metal shabby type nested baskets. Never used right out of the water stained and dirty box. Still wrapped in bubble wrap.
Then about 7 our babysitting client came and we had a great time with him. He has got to be one of the most pleasant babies I ever seen. So sweet and easy going.
Some of hubbies cousins (once or twice removed?) came by for a little while and I drug out the Lincoln Logs and at one point all the adults but me were involved in building.
Stay tune for Part 2 which will be the results of the rest of the weekend in the green room...
