The Merriment Chain ~ Day 1: The Missing Post....

It hardly seems like it was 21 days ago already that The Merriment Chain, hostessed by Misi of 1890 Gable House Musings and Robyn of Primlish, began. (Well, maybe for those of you who are growing weary of my daily posts, it might seem even longer, hey???)

 
I joined the chain a day late....and never thought I'd keep up.  But so far, so good. (It is the ONLY way I'd have any decorations up this year.....)
But, Day 1 was always MIA....
For those of you wondering (anyone???) what happened on Day 1, well, I was rounding up pumpkins and herding black cats of course.....

 (This dapper fella is the winsome creation of Miss Mary Harris from Prairie Homeplace.)

While I did (seriously) toy with the idea of just fashioning little Santa hats for all my pumpkins, cats, and witches and calling it "good" this year, I decided to link up with the chain and that, of course, meant tucking away all the Halloween and fall until next spooking season. (Black cats aren't very easy to herd by the way....)
 
  
 So THAT is what happened to Day 1.....

And, in the rounding, herding, packing, and tucking, I neglected to thank Cyn from cynzplace for this wonderful little pumpkin tuck that I won in her fall giveaway....

 
 Cyn also sent the yummy little tart and a great handmade card (sorry, the card didn't make it into the photo shoot....) 

Thank you so much Cyn!!  The tuck is beautiful....and your stitches are so sweet!!!

***************

So, that's the story of Day 1 of the Merriment Chain.....

I'll be back in a little while with Day 21.....(Don't say you weren't warned!)

Merry, Merry!

Santa hats on pumpkins and cats might be a good idea!
