Shopping for a Cause...

The Etsy Angels held their first BNR 2 weeks ago and it was a roaring success - We had 85 sales... 47 of those sales will see a percentage being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

We are having our second and final one for Breast Cancer Awareness on Thursday, October 20th at 5:00pm Etsy time.

We would love to see lots of support for the Cause there... we will be posting our link in our thread when it becomes live.

Here are some of the items selected so far to begin the BNR.... you do not need to donate to buy in but all the Angel items in the beginning of the BNR will benefit the Cause.

20% for the Cause from Ozarknana:

25% for the Cause from Wildlifer:

10% for the Cause from Myminimocs:

20% for the Cause from CBLandCompany:

For more of those great items from the Etsy Angels go to our list in our thread:

Loving the Fall...

I love the fall.. the weather is beautiful and the scenery is amazing! I live in a wooded area and there are so many different colors to see. I was out walking around my yard this morning looking at what needed to be done before Old Man Winter sets in and saw all these amazing leaves:

Then on the way to see my Mom as I was driving down the road I took this one.. the county living is so nice:

Halloween is only a few weeks away and we are all getting into the swing of it... these are popular sights around here these days:

And there are pumpkins every wheres you look for sale:

And here are a few more interesting sights I saw today as I was on my way home from my errands....

This is a stunning example of the Waterman boys sculpting abilities... they won numerous awards in the last few years for ice and sand sculpting, so sad he is deteriorating - they lost their grandmother this week to cancer... she was so proud of them :

And this is a field across the road from my house... Canada Geese:

I hope you enjoyed my tour of our pretty autumn day here on Prince Edward Island!!!

Wonderful Quotes to live by!

"Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you."
