My Personal Mitten Moments
Last Friday night, I took my 90 year old mother with me to watch my grandbabies. It was a fun night and we saw the most amazing event right out back, sitting on my son and DIL’s new patio deck.
What was it you ask?
Three bright beautifully colored hot air balloons floating above us. It was a gift to see my mother and granddaughter in awe of all the beauty! Don’t get me wrong, I thought they were beautiful too, but the interaction they had together watching them was even more beautiful!
It’s the little things in life friends! Enjoy them!
Football is back! I had the pleasure of heading to the first Lion’s game last weekend, tailgate and all! Even though Big Al couldn’t be there, it was such a fun day spent with friends. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the Lion win, but it was still a great day! Our best friend’s daughter is a NFL cheerleader for the Detroit Lions and how exciting it was to see her living her best life!
Will the Lions get a victory today? Only time will tell!
I’ve started decorating my outdoor spaces for fall. I have to tell you though, some of my flowers out front still look really amazing. So, I decided to move all my pretty summer flowers onto the back patio. That gives me the opportunity to decorate the other two front porches for fall. I couldn’t bear to throw them away when they looked so good.
Check them out for yourself!

So cool about the hot air balloons Kim. We have both been so busy these last few weeks that I had to catch up on all your crafty doings by reading your mitten moments. So great that you got to go to the Lions game. Too bad Big Al had to miss it. And I can’t believe how great your flowers still look. I think next year I’ll have you plant mine for me lol🤦♀️
It’s been a fun couple of weeks! Call me over! I’d love to help you!xo

Sounds like you have been very busy. I love the hot air balloons and the sweet story of your mom and granddaughters. These are the moments we will remember. And I have yet to decoupage a pumpkin, can you believe that! lol
I can’t believe you haven’t decoupaged a pumpkin! You’ll have to try. It’s so relaxing and fun to do!
A treat to see hot air balloon’s in the sky! Love your fall decor and favorite shop. Your summer pots still look beautiful. Love Lions day pic with C family!

The hot air balloon story was so cool!! I love the pumpkin flowers, and I’m going to do that. My wooden rocking chair rotted out, so I need a pop of something on my porch!! It’s perfect, flowers and pumpkins together!!
Thanks so much, Jules! I’m glad you like it!
