I finished up Karen's RR and its ready to get into the mail. I decided to add a turkey and pumpkins to the right hand side and another tree. Her theme is country so I didn't want to get too many farm critters in there. But since I love Autumn, I couldn't resist adding a touch of fall-ish colour to this one. I hope Karen likes it. Her neighbourhood is really taking shape with 6 houses now on it!


Tomorrow is hubby and my 28th wedding anniversary. We are planning to celebrate with dinner in Toronto and a movie. Yup, that's about our speed these days. And we each bought ourselves our own anniversary gifts - he got a new 'walking' lawnmower and I bought a new sewing machine. So it looks like we'll both be studying manuals to figure out how to put these things together and make them work.

Have a great weekend!

I have to admit I'm having a good chuckle over your anniversary gifts to each other. Though our wedding was only 5 years ago, I think these are gifts that would really suit both of us very well, too! ;)

Your RR is very pretty. I love those chickens!
