There’s a new kid in town!


 There's a new girl in town and her name is NATASHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She comes from the land down UNDER!!! hee! hee! πŸ™‚ Yes! Miss Natasha had FINALLY arrived in the States and is visiting little ole me! After months and months of planning this trip it's SO surreal to finally see her in person. We of course had happy tears when we met at the airport. Just a flood of happy emotions. Natasha is sooo ADORABLE & CUTE in person and just full of fun, spunk, and energy! Look how adorable she is modeling the hat I purchased from Miss Heather.


She surprised my family with gifts, and hubby was the lucky recepient of an Aussie hat that has strings of corks handing down to help keeps flies away! "WOW  hunny you look real HOT in that hat!". πŸ˜‰


Grant and Vivi both received sweet gifts from Miss Natasha. Grant is trying out his new Koala hand puppet.


We are lucky that Natasha had the opportunity to celebrate Halloween with us! She dressed up as a Pirate Wench and I went as a good witch.


Natasha and Grant spent quality time together carving a pumpkin. 



Natasha proud and showing off her pumpkin carving.

We took some cute pics of the kiddies standing outside in front of the pumpkins.


The kids were excited to dress up and Miss Vivi dressed up as "Double Trouble" and Grant went as "Skelebones". 



Time for trick or treating!!!!



Natasha, neighbor and friend Terrell, and ME!

Halloween costume   Hope you and your families all had a WONDERFUL Halloween! Now I must FORCE myself NOT to eat my childrens candy! LOL!!!

Today (Saturday) Natasha and I made a special day trip visit to Savannah. There is no way Natasha can come to GA and NOT visit Savannah!

We made a special lunch/shopping date with a very sweet dear blogging friend Penny of Lavender Hill Studio  . Natasha and Penny have been blogging friends for about 2 years now and a few months ago I purchased the MOST GORGEOUS mosaic tile buffet from Penny. She is such a SWEETHEART!!! Natasha and I had a lovely day chatting and spending quality time with Penny and her friend Kathy.

DSCN5175 We made visits to TWO of my favorite shops in Savannah. Vintage General being #1! The store owner Liz is FABULOUS! She was so welcoming and super friendly to us all! Liz shop hands down is like no other. I can browse and shop for hours!!!! We totally LUCKED OUT and got to see her new Christmas display! GASP! Cody Foster homes!!! EEK! I totally collect and display them in my dining room during the holidays.





I could not resist purchasing a new house to add to my collection. Liz also has the BEST Jennifer Murphy Holiday collection. Natasha and I both were wanting one of each!!! Liz was kind enough to let us have a group photo taken with her. If you are EVER in Savannah you MUST MUST MUST stop by Vintage General. Tell Liz that Jenn sent ya!!! ;) 


Ok sweet friends, tomorrow Natasha and I are OFF to the BIG APPLE for a few days!!! Hope you all have a lovely week and I will chat with you REAL SOON! :)

Hugs & Kisses!!! XOXO,

What a treat to have Natasha come for a visit. It looks like ya’ll are having a FANTASTIC time!! And, OH AM I JEALOUS….a trip to Savannah. That is probably one of my most favorite cities in the U.S. I only got to spend an afternoon there two summers ago as we were heading back to Dallas from Williamsburg. I’m a HUGE fan of the movie “Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil” and made my family stop in Savannah for lunch (She-crab bisque yum!) and a tour of the highlights of the city, to include the cemetary. Next year, when the Cupcake Princess goes to college and I’m suffering from “empty nest syndrome”, my husband and I are going to take a trip back to Savannah and really experience it’s beauty. Hope you are having a blast in the Big Apple….can’t wait to see more pictures!

Your pictures are incredible!!!! What an amazing adventure you girls are having and now going of to NYC? Wow!!! I’m SO looking forward to seeing you both at SB!!! Yeee-haw!!!

Hi Jenn, so nice to meet you and read about your lovely time with the dear sweet Natasha. I was visiting Penny’s blog and found you from there. Your time together with Natasha sounds like so much fun. All the pictures from Halloween and shopping to meeting with Penny are wonderful. That shoppe looks so yummy too.

HOW FUNNNNNNN!!!!!!!! Hi Natasha!! Wish you could come to California!!!!!!! You’d dig it here, too.
I think it is wonderful that all of you met for lunch and got to enjoy a day of shopping. Cody Foster is one of my favorites!!!
happy day,

Boy! That Natasha sure gets around! I was just talking to Miss Lori today and she said she was meeting Natasha at Heather’s House on Monday! Well, I can’t wait for my turn to meet *YOU* Miss Jenn and Miss Natasha!!
You both looked so cute in your costumes…
~Sadie Lou
PS love that shop!! Wow!

When I saw your little guy’s T-shirt, “Sister for Sale”, it reminded me of a story that always gets told at our family reunions…One day my brother answered the doorbell to find a man who said, “I’m here from the ARC (Association for Retarded Citizens) and have come for the donation pick-up.”…which my mom had agreed to previously. My brother promptly turned around and said, “Mary Lou, they’ve come to pick you up.” I would be mad, except this brother is one of the dearest people on earth, whom everyone loves!! And we were both very young. Hope this brought you a smile. : )

Hi Jen, I’m please to see your looking after our gal Natasha, but I’m missing her here!!!!!…lol. how much fun you all look in your costumes and trick & treating, our aussie hat looks fab on your hubby….hee, hee, how cute your churubs look, all dressed up ready for the fun night ahead, and I sooooo love to have that shop Vintage General, I hope you and Natasha stuffed as much as you could in your bags and ran out the door, hee, hee. Well I hope you both have a fun time in the Big Apple….take care of our Aussie girl she is precious to us….AND HAVE LOADS OF FUN AND LAUGHTER!!!!

What funs you guys have been having… and Vintage General – wow what a shop!
