Biscotti and Tea , Anyone

I went thrifting and found this beautiful Biscotti Cookie Jar for 3.00.. It had a few chipped places on it but I'm not gonna tell ya where those were becuase I mixed paint and patted and dabbed and diddled with it till I cant even find where the chip places were now ...

 Marty's Party is going on and there'll be lots of folks posting beautiful displays so click on her link and visit those folks too, please..
I know it means alot to me when I have company, so I'm sure it will to them too..

   The pretty birdhouse was on 1/2 price sale at Micheals so it came home with me and I love it.  I certainly have developed a THING for birds lately.. Birds and Chickens and Roosters-- OH MY ..

 As you can tell I was playing with my graphics program and made myself a new header.. While I had it running I played with some of my tea tray photos too..

I didnt have any biscotti so I had to swipe of few of Mr. Dreams chocolate chip cookies... It sure didnt take him long to come asking me where they were and I had to admit I needed them for a display..
It was so hard not to have one of those cookie but no more sugar or white flour for me. I had some tests and I am highly allergic to both as well as many many other things.. Oh well, I'll be slim and healthy while he gains weight:)  See, theres always an up side to everything ...:)

It 's a beautiful fall evening here in Welcome , NC.. I always smile when I say the name of my town. Its tiny and friendly and I have always felt very Welcome here.. I know if you ever came to visit , you;d feel the same way..

In case you missed the FREEBIE gift tags I posted yesterday~~  click here and go get um:)

Ya'll come back and see me sometime, Ya hear~!!
I love having you here...

  8. Sonny, this is such a beautiful display. Love your Biscotti jar, it is so pretty and your entire display is lovely. I would love one of those wonderful cookies and when they are under a cloche they always look so much better. Even your napkin is such a pretty fall color. Eveything is just gorgeous.
