It's A Nice Day For A White Pumpkin....

Good Morning Everyone! 
I know... what will you all think?! 
Two posts in one week?  

I just had something silly to share. 
I was at the grocery store and saw these sweet little white pumpkins. I walked by, and here is why.

I'm really to the point in my life that I just don't want to buy "stuff " anymore. 
 I'm almost fifty-four and have more than any three people can use up in one life time.  After remodeling our kitchen, I started a process of paring down what we have. But it is still too much. 

I really try to not buy what I don't need. The days of buying things for a blog post are over. I have decided that the blog is no longer going to be a possible means of income. It is just going to be what it was originally designed to be. An on line journal and log of whatever.  Meaning:  whatever I'm currently doing.  That might be decorating, remodeling, books, bible journaling, my faith, tablescapes, and/or crafting.

That being said, you won't see regular posts, or a general theme.  And, while I won't guarantee this,  you most likely won't see ads. (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with monitizing your blog) I probably won't be changing my blog to follow any trends that seem to run through the blog-us-phere.  Although, trust me, I am always tempted to chase that rabbit. There are so many beautiful blogs out there that I love. They all do a great job of capturing their audience and keeping them. But it is an endless job and I already have a job that I like. This blog is about my "fun" and my sharing it with you. Sounds totally selfish now that I read it. hmmm. 

Well, I hope you don't mind and I hope you'll keep checking in. 

Oh! and about the title ... 
I couldn't stop thinking about the cute pumpkins... So I went back to the floral department and got them. I know, your eyes are rolling.  Now, every time I walk by them I think of the old Billy Idol song "It's a nice day for a white pumpkin...."  I mean white wedding.

Okay, if your eyes weren't rolling before, they are now. 

Have a lovely fall weekend!

Oh, I totally get it about the blog! I have never found my niche in blog land and often thought of quitting all together, but then I thought, "What the heck? It's my blog, I can write about whatever and whenever it suits my fancy and if I am fortunate enough to have some lovely blogging friends, great!"

*Giggles* this is a cute post! I love the little white pumpkins! I enjoy your Bible journaling pages and I hope you'll share more of them! Also I miss Fresh Cut Friday. :)


I appreciate no ads on blogs...I feel it takes away from blogging. My blog is my journal of my little life. It is all good.
