Fall Fun...


Thursday and Friday of this week were jam-packed with fall fun.  Friday, I met my good friend, Barbara, in Canton for the First Monday Trades Days.  This cute little tea pot, creamer and sugar bowl are among my favorite ever Canton finds!!


I also had the great fortune of being able to meet one of my blogging friends... also a fellow knitter/yarn addict, old bungalow lover...  Canton shopper...


Steph from Woolythyme.  She is even more wonderful in person!! 

And, on Thursday... Got an excellent hair cut by my long, long time friend Kathy... then, she and I had lunch with Zachary AND on to...


See this Little Lady... Sooooo enjoyed the treat of feeding, burping and changing her!!  Two months old this week!  Time flies!! 


And, I whipped through a wonderful fall patternThe Lonely Tree by Silvia Bo Bilvia at Soft Sweater Knits & Fibres.  Simply LOVED it!!  The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage 100% superwash merino wool:  colorway - Golden Hickory.  More to come... it is staked out on the bed blocking.  ;) 

Wishing you all some Fall Fun in your day... blessings ~ tanna

and your sweet baby girl.

Pondside said...

What a lovely fall week you had! I have such admiration for your knitting. I have yet to master more than the easiest baby dress. I think one has to have a tiny bit of a 'math' brain to really knit, and I have none at all!

It is so much fun meeting blogging friends. Looks like y'all had a lot of fun. Oh, how sweet is that little bundle of joy.

Donna said...

Meeting blogging friends is just the best...
So glad you had great fun. What a change it is going to be to spoil that little princess girl after your two little men! Can't wait to watch!

Dianne said...

First of all, your granddaughter is absolutely gorgeous and I know you are happy to live close enough to see her! I also loved your amazing finds - they are wonderful!

ImSoVintage said...

I wanted to go to Canton this weekend...but too much happening here with the family...I have gone since I was a child. That tea set is wonderful. Oh, isn't she just precious, precious...and how much fun to meet a blogging friend.

My daughter heads that way tomorrow...oh my, I need to get use to that, she has never lived more than 20 minutes away....

Absolute prefection is a wonderful description of that sweet baby girl! Your new knit project pattern is stunningly beautiful! Every stitch looks perfect, and I love the color.

I'm glad you were able to neet a good blog friend for lunch. That is always a treat!

Judy S. said...

Great find! And thanks for the link to the pretty shawl.

It's Just Dottie said...

It sounds like you had a perfect weekend. Perfect is my favorite word.
Smiles, Dottie

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a fabulous find! Love the teapot set! The First Monday sounds like a lot of fun.
Your Little Lady is adorable. I see lots of knitting projects in your future for her!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Tanja said...

It is wonderful to meet blog-friend in person! And every time you see this tea ensemble, you will get some nice feelings about lovely shopping day. The things are able to keep for us so much. Piccola principessa is simple cute . And what about fall knitting, this yarn is just perfect for this lace-leafs-pattern. One color goes in another color without strips - my dream, my favorite!

steph said...

WOW---the creamer was wonderful, the whole set is over the top!!!!
It really was so fun to meet you!!! Something tells me it won't be the last time we have lunch....at Canton!!! I know I'll think of you every time I look at my Canton buys.
That little one knows how to wear 'the bling'!!! adorable!!!
and of course, your knitting always gets me in trouble....another thing added to my queue!
HUGS!

Meghan @ Wishful Thinking said...

Ooooh I now have teapot envy! What a great find!

Tanna,
I too have been on a bit of a self imposed exile from blogging--reading and writing. I've just felt a bit uninspired. Today I "caught" up with your last three posts and remembered why I enjoy blogs! I expecially enjoyed your "Old Girls" post. How lucky your town is to have you there restoring these wonderful homes. I could move right into the duplex you wrote about! Lots of love,
Susan

Kerin said...

Good Morning Tanna..
You've had some wonderful days :)
How fun to catch up with friends, meet a fellow blogger, and esp. hold that sweet baby!!

Hope that the coming week is just as wonderful, as the past week.

Warm Fall Wishes..

Jen Price said...

Oh, I miss those Canton Trade Days!

karen said...

I am so jealous that you met Steph!! Oh how I wish I could have been with the two of you :) Lovely finds and what a sweet little babe!!

Jennifer {Studio JRU} said...

Sounds like a couple of perfect days! Love your Canton finds... gorgeous. So fun to mean a blogging friend! The little one is adorable! Love the beautiful project too! :)

Cindy said...

Hi Tanna,
Your baby grand-daughter is adorable! Congratulations on a precious new one in the family.
Your knitting is beautiful. Speaking of knitting, I just learned this week that my eight year old grand-daughter has taught herself to knit by watching you-tube tutorials. Her mother showed a photo on FB of her with her needles just going to town on it! I have tried many times to learn and have finally given up, I have trouble with the tension, particularly, the same with crocheting.
I love to see what you make, yours are always so beautiful.
Hugs, Cindy

Debbie said...

I had so much to say about your adventure. Then, I saw the granddaughter and it all flew out the window.

How precious is she???

And I love that yarn. It looks like you dyed it yourself. Gorgeous.

Pride In Photos said...

I just found you through Steph at wooly thyme! Your blog is lovely and I am your newest follower! I can't wait till the day...I can meet some of my blogging friends. You two look so cute together.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

How fun! Sounds and looks like you had a great time. That shawl is gorgeous ... lovely color, perfect for Fall. Your little grand daughter is a sweetie. Yes, time does fly! Best wishes for a wonderful week. Tammy

Lauri said...

Jealous of your Canton trip AND those sweet baby hugs! Sounds like a perfect week!

Wanda said...

Oh what a fun post. Just love that you got to meet and visit with a blog friend. That is so special.

Love your little darling!

Can't wait to see the finished work blocking on the bed.

Have a great day!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Just read your last three posts and have to say how glad I am to see you BACK. All the PULLS of life dome flying at us don't they? I am on a "break" from blogging as I have absolutely NOTHING worthwhile to SAY Tanna! I think about it and then the days many tasks present themselves and the to do lists NEVER get completed!!!
Love the old girls and all that you have been up to lately! SO GOOD TO SEE YOU!

Tricia @ saving room for dessert said...

Two months already and she is so beautiful. Love her hat! I love your finds and the fall colors. Have a great week - happy voting!

Mary said...

It sounds like you had a great day. That little lady of yours is going to be a beauty and that picture is a treasure. Thanksgiving will be really special for all of you this year. I hope all is well. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

California Girl said...

Happy Election Day Tanna!

Amanda said...

So glad you're back in the blog world - especially given your limited time to blog these days. =) I sure wish we could have joined in the fall fun with you. Would have loved a trip to Canton (sans the boys - ha!) and to see baby Blayklee. Soon, soon.

Your ol' girls still amaze me. Every one is gorgeous. And I still love the Jacobean stain on those floors in the duplex. Mm, mm, mm. I'd love that color upstairs in Mirabelle.

kathy b said...

awww Baby love!!!! She's adorable.
your knitting is amazing.

I really enjoy reading your blog tanna

podso said...

Little Lady is a charmer! Two months already. Your silver teapot and friends is a beautiful find. I love having stories to go with my finds, and you have a sweet one.

Lastly, the shawl is gorgeous, and the color perfect for fall!

vicki said...

Tanna-- your grandbaby is previous!! Her little outfit is adorable. I can't believe she is 2 months old already!

Love- totally love-- the autumn leaves pattern. What an exquisite pattern-- that yarn is gorgeous!

Debbie said...

Tanna, I LOVE your fall table! Just gorgeous! Wanted to do Canton in December, but I'll be accompanying my son to Nashville for a medical school interview. Wonderful find and purchase you made! The babies and friend...adorable! What fun!
