I Like Thursdays # 118 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes...brought to you by the color combination of red and green.

I respond to red, in all it's mixtures. Bright red, blue red, pinks, coral, all the way to slightly orange.
I love the soft plaid blanket we found at Khols... perfect for keeping toasty while watching tv...
Milo likes it too
I like finding decorations in the mess of moving boxes, and seeing lights going up little by little

 I like timers that automatically provide pretty lights each evening.
I even saved this pretty kleenex holder from last year, so ...

I Like Thursday #117 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I like these Christmas-y flowers from Trader Joes on the now cleared off kitchen table with it's red tablecloth

Wouldn't it be a little Christmas miracle if it stayed cleared off?
I like a the pops of red in Christmas decorations, and the new "old" ornaments I found at Michaels on black Friday
Santa is driving up in a 1960's car this year! 

 Look at that Rudolph mug! and of course Santa Cow!
We got a new green fake tree that day but haven't set it up yet ...

I Like Thursdays from Quilting Reader's Garden

Here's the big news for us: It's raining in California - SoCal to be exact! Suppose to rain for part of today. Thank you, God! and I really like I'm back to the quilting part of a project: Now I'm off to get ready for a very special luncheon - I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. Be sure to drop by Lee Anna's I Like Thursdays for some happy likes from this past week.

I Like Thursday #116 Happy Thanksgiving y'all from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes... Thanksgiving Edition
 I'll miss Fall... it's already snowed about 6 times, and we still have some from two weeks ago, but I caught this lovely leaf during a sunny day this week. I love it and the shades of it. Makes me want to paint one, or quilt one.
the weather's  been so squirrely that the grasses haven't had time to comb their hair

make the most of the last of this year's pumpkins because if stores are to be believed, it's Christmas season! If Hallmark ...

I Like Thursday # 114 from Not Afraid of Color

 Welcome to this week's list of likes!   I guess I enjoyed how pretty the 4" of snow was in the back yard on Sunday. (I can't believe I got the series number wrong! It's #115 but can't change it now!)

Luckily we went to a craft show on Saturday. I'll show you a few pictures, and although I interviewed several people about their inspiration, I forgot some of it.. I laughed at this booth of crocheted hats...
the maker said her favorite one was a gray one for an older woman! Her friend dared her ...

Welcome to this week's list of Likes... Short list this week folks but I'm here. First of all I've written two posts already this week: Monday Happy Homemaker and Tuesday's Poodle with a Pearl reveal of my challenge piece.
That post is HERE
I liked finding Marshmallows made with tapioca instead of corn starch at Trader Joes! Got several bags for recipes then got home and noticed the soy protein... uh oh... I'm allergic to Corn and Soy.

I liked the ...

I Like Thursdays from Quilting Reader's Garden

The weeks are going by so fast!  Thursdays come around in a whirl now. This week I like that my Paint Brush lily (some call it Soap Brush - Haemanthus  genus) is in bloom again! This plant is in the Amaryllis family.  God made flowers of such variety. I also liked all the cute costumes I saw at our parish school.  Here's the Pre-K class who I read to each week.  I'm privileged to be the

I Like Thursday number 112 trips, books, candy apples and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes!
We went to Colorado springs this weekend, and walked around the oldest part, Colorado City. How about these caramel apples?? Who loves apples?
yes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
rip out your fillings with caramel and chocolate???
We didn't get one but we loved the tiny shops and how cute they all were.
I liked both quilt stores we went into and purchased a couple pieces of fabric to give at Christmas.

Despite this, they were not pre-washed
We did purchase two bottles of wine however. We haven ...

I Like Thursday #111 from Not Afraid of Color

this little piggy still has flowers!
welcome to this week's list of likes. Mostly just pictures for this week's list.
blue skies, yellow leaves
blue skies with snow capped mountains appearing overnight
Apparently they moved in to the 'hood overnight. We haven't seen them since we moved in June, but maybe the wildfire smoke is finally out, and it's not raining right now so....
leaves painted on every edge
Guard Ghosts
small town America

Peek-a-boo scarecrows

I Like Thursday #110 Easy as 1,2,3... fall snow festivals and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

It's as easy as one, two, three! Welcome to this week's list of likes! Each week I try to focus on the small fun things to enjoy. On a walk this weekend, I happened onto the wee little pine cone, then the twig. One, two.
three. From a lovely bright golden tree. I was pleased with this, although Milo thought I should give the twig to him, then saw this across the street from our house... Four/ Fore!
We live in a golf course community
 I like doing a Monday Happy Homemaker post that is fun! (here) and ...

I Like Thursday #109 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! The above photo is from yesterday's post with lots of fun fall pictures from the festival we attended last weekend! I liked that they had tubs there for washing off your purchase before going home!

And this reminder we aren't in the East anymore!
Nope, maybe we aren't in big sky country but it's darn near close enough!
We have had a few cool days and the trees are trying to brighten up the landscape with color

and it's beginning to look a lot like Halloween!

I Like Thursday 108 flowers, trader joe's, little red wagons, and a poodle from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I love the free wagon the table owners gave me. I move the plants around, and enjoy the view from my computer perch at the kitchen table. Look at that little squash DH's workmate gave him! Adorable.

We made a trip to Trader Joe's last weekend, I love TJ's and it's a long trek from our house now, so we stock up
I haven't installed pull outs in the pantry yet but for now am using turntables to help reach things.

I wanted some pumpkin cookies but ...

I Like Thursday #107 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes! 

Doesn't this look inviting? We love the front porch, with it's little sliver of a mountain view. I like to  sit a moment to cool off from my walks, before jumping back into house jobs. The chairs are from Pier One. Also from that store is this wonderful blue pumpkin
It looks great on the mantel right now!
Monday, I wrote a post about my table purchase and weekly goals (in case you missed it, look HERE
 This bowl is hand painted (not by me although I've painted a ...

I Like Thursday # 106 from Not Afraid of Color

Welcome to this week's list of likes. I may not like temps in the 90's but I love the spectacular cloud shows here in Colorado! This stunned us one evening as we left Target!
I like that my flowers are coming back to life, and the shape of this awesome white flower
each little stem has 5 small petals all on one side, which makes me want to stop everything and go make a quilt like this

Our neighborhood had a Doggie Day at the pool just before shutting down for the winter

I Like Thursday #105 Pumpkins, scrolls and springs from Not Afraid of Color

We had a busy week here at Chez Paylor. Welcome to this week's list of likes...
We went to the garden/produce center and Milo wanted a pumpkin.(It's just a little too early to get that kind of pumpkin, Pumpkin.) Even to get one of these kind, seen at a store in Manitou Springs

 But DH did come home with one of these from the grocery store

Ah Fall.

I like Fall flamingos...
 Did you think you were leaving here without a flamingo picture? Ha! I thought this was very clever!

This week I liked working in ...

I like Thursdays from The Quilting Reader's Garden

I like to re-purpose and this past week I've done a bit of that.  This block has scraps of black and a paisley I saved from long ago. Then I took an old pillowcase from my rag bag and cut out 8 squares and made that block into a twinkle star for a new project (New Project for 6and6 in 2018). Then I pulled out my scrap bag of batiks and hand dyes and started this crumb block: I have an idea
