Jingles coming your way

Good evening all.  I feel badly about not being able to send everyone a few bells.  Seems like they are hard to find across the country.  I checked today and except for the large ones, sold out!  Ebay has a nice assortment and even multiple sizes in one package.  The winner is pj in Iowa.  Email your address to me pj and your postal carrier will be delivering with bells on!
Thank you again for your well wishes, the leg is doing fine.  The wrist, terrible.  Something is radically wrong and I heard a little snap that brought me to my knees yesterday.  I can't go into the MRI tube and I don't consider a little side slit to be "open".  Why can't I lay outside the machine and stretch my arm in?  Anyway,
 I bought another pumpkin - 55#er.  Yep, it's big.  And I hung a large gourd on the door, an added another mum.  This does NOT mean I am happy about fall.  I just hate being left out.













I painted a few safety pins with the Flat Brown I talked about.  They aren't rusted, but good enough.  I just spray lightly in every possible direction and only had a problem one time with the paint remaining tacky so I don't know if it was the pins or the paint.  Adding a final coat of a clear satin finish really helps with the pins going smoothly through fabric.  ????  Did I ever look to see if that color comes in a satin?  Nope.  Better check.
 That's it.  Can't type very long ~ the 4 hours are up and I'm ready for more Advil.  Thank you for visiting with me and participating once again.  I have a few other things planned!!!  And I still want to talk about how my needlework has changed but that would take forever with one hand typing.  Maybe next time!!
Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

Oh dear. You need to get that wrist checked somehow. Doesn't sound good. Congrats to the winner of the bells. Looove your front door. And no, I'm not happy about fall either. lol! Not sure what season I would be happy about. Spring I guess. :D

Love the gourd on the door!! Very clever and cute.

I do hope someone will figure out what's wrong with your wrist! Glad the leg is doing fine. The pumpkin & the gourd look great. The older I get the more I think "less is more."

Love your fall decorations! Wish we were neighbors! :)

Thank you for your kind response to my question. Sorry for the no-reply -- it was inadvertent.

Hope you feel better and better!

Andrea said...

So sorry about your arm. Can't they just xray it without putting you through the tube? I've never had to go through one, can't imagine!!

Love your huge pumpkin and that gourd hanging on your front door. I don't see how anyone can be unhappy about fall, but guess that's cause I love it so much. It's always such a relief after a summer full of this Texas heat.

Those pins are too cool, good job! Congrats to the winners of the bells! I always buy them off ebay :)

Hello Marly, feel bad about that wrist of yours, not good. Nice pumpkin, the tub of flowers are so pretty, the frost got all mine. Pins painted brown is a good idea, looks great. Enjoy the weekend,Francine.

Vickie said...

Okay Marly, having just gone through the "toilet paper tube"/closed MRI experience last week, I can understand. But unless I am remembering incorrectly, 8 years ago I had the open MRI and it was very, very open. But what about doing an ultrasound? Maybe the doctor could use that? My mother just had x-rays on her knee. The doctor said it wasn't clear enough, but there is "something loose back there behind your knee"! So she is getting an ultrasound on Monday. My mom has a massive problem with MRIs, didn't ask her if that is why she is getting the ultrasound, but she is. Take care. You are in my prayers.♥

Chris said...

Hey Marly!
I am glad that your leg is fine but I am worried about your wrist. I hope that you get some answers and it fixed/ healed soon.
I Love your fall displays, the gourd, the mums, the pumpkin. I like your little clothesline for the safety pins too.

Sweet Sue said...

Oh my, really feel bad for your wrist pain. Hey, what about spraying that brown/rust finishing technique on your tin washtub, would match the stand?! That's really a very beautiful fall display in there:)

Ohhh Marly, So sad to hear you are still having problems. I can't imagine what I would do with just one hand working. I have always been that kind of person "Hands On".
Have had Carpal Tunnel twice on each hand. Now I am dealing with another trigger finger. Guess this is what is referred to as the 'Golden Years'.
Your front entry is terrific.
Hope you get that wrist taken care of sooon.
TTYL, Peace,
Barb

Sorry to hear that you are still having trouble with your wrist... I know what you mean about MRI's.... hope they can use a different way to discover what your problem is, and get it fixed soon.....
Congrats to the winner of the jingle bells!
Love your simply perfect fall decorations.... it is on my to-do list this weekend! Enjoy.... Penny

Sigh....I have pumpkin envy. Who'da thunk that they'd be high-end goods here in Nod? Can't imagine what one that big, that orange, and that nicely shaped would cost here this year...IF one could fine one....I found some little punky looking things at Walmart and they were $6 each. Oiy.

Congratulations to pj in Iowa!!!

Yikes to you about the wrist. I've had lots of issues with wrists (carpal tunnel, compressed nerves, etc.), but they never "snapped." There has to be some alternative to the MRI....lots of people are claustrophobic, so I'm sure there has to be a work-around??? Here's to hoping...and praying....

Happy Weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Your decor is really fallish, and pretty, as usual. Nice tip on the pins. Sending good thoughts for that wrist! Be well.

Judy said...

Sorry to hear you are still having trouble with your wrist. It sure is frustrating! I love fal and all the decor...but dred that winter follows. I love snow and the cold, but don't like to drive in it. Thanks for the painting pins instructions.

Enjoy the weekend.

Barb said...

I'm so sorry about your wrist!! However, your fall decorating looks wonderful!

Anne said...

Oh no!! So sorry to hear about your leg AND your wrist...again!! This is terrible. I truly hope that the MRI will provide some insight as to what's going on. Congrats to PJ...lucky gal! I was hoping to win because I have a rustic finish I need some rusted bells for! I might have to go and look for a tutorial on how to make them. Love your pumpkin and gourd display!

Take care of yourself!

Carol said...

Gosh, Marly, I'm so sorry to read that your wrist is even worse... I hope you can get it looked at very soon and get some relief.

Love that giant pumpkin--55 pounds!! WOW!!

Congratulations to pj, too!!
