Make it Pretty Monday - Week 15

Hello World!  It has been raining on and off today.  Just perfect!  I love nothing better than a rainy Sunday afternoon.  Hopefully, cooler temperatures will follow.  

Well, my pretties, last week we had the biggest party yet with 285 party goers!  You make me smile.  Falling into Fall with Week 15!

I'm still working on the piece of furniture that I'm painting.  It's a very intricate piece.  Here's hoping I get it done soon.  Enjoy the party!  Wishing all a grand week and remember to be kind to one another.
