Happy Autumn - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday and welcome Autumn!

I'm sorry to all of you that came by last night to link up to Show and Tell Friday and couldn't. It's just been a hectic week! My birthday was Tuesday and I hadn't anticipated this week being so busy! My girlfriends took me out Tuesday after work and we went to the restaurant where my daughter works. On Wednesday my daughter took me out to dinner.  Although I didn't have any blogging time, I did have a wonderful birthday week! I was just 45 years old when I started blogging and now I'm 53! When I first started blogging I really didn't expect to still be blogging all these years later!  

I had planned to share the beautiful gift my daughter bought me but I came home from work last night and I was too exhausted to take photos so I am just going to share on of my favorite mosaics that I think I share every year about this time!  It's made from beautiful photos I found on Flickr.

The only photo on here that is mine is the sunflower in the top upper right corner. My daughter took that when she was only 13 years old and now she's almost 21! She is a really good photographer and I hope some day she gets more involved with photography.

Looking at this really gets me in the mood for Autumn!  

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

Cindy, the mosaic is gorgeous! It certainly is a beautiful tribute to autumn.
FYI - the linky isn't there. It says it will start at 2 AM on the 28th. You may need to go in and change the setting.

That's a lovely collage, Cindy. It will be looking exactly like that around here in western Massachusetts in just a short time.

I've been decorating for the fall around the house, too.

Happy birthday , late but heartfelt. Yours was the first blog I ever saw in blogland and I was mesmerized. Still am!

I'm a September sapphire girl, too, and have been celebrating the entire month! Love it. Only three days left. boo hoo

Take care. Susan

That sunflower shot is fab, can't believe it was taken by a 13 year old. She has talent, just like her Mom! Eight years of blogging and you're still the best! Happy Birthday Week!!!

Belated Happy Birthday - I have a margarita in your honor tonight since we are riding our bikes so I don't need to worry about driving.

The fall mosaic is absolutely gorgeous.
