Raise your hand're feeling all betwixt and between and you can't quite figure out why. Yeah, me too. At least Ghost Hunters is on tonight. :)

On a good-feeling note, my husband and I met 32 years ago tonight; it was the night I first fell into his bright blue eyes and felt safe from the world. Who'd have thunk we'd still be together after all this time, four kids and one grandchild later. It hasn't always been easy, but it's always been worth it. ♥

New Signs

Hi there. I do believe Fall has finally arrived! Chilly temps tonight~maybe even blanket weather. :)

Here are the signs that I started and finished this weekend. This is one of the things that I really love doing.

Raise your hand if...this morning you had the air conditioner on because of the humidity, and tonight it's chilly as can be! Yup...gotta love this New England weather. "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute"!

I got to spend a few hours in my studio today which I really needed. I was able to get started on five different signs, three mini's and two larger ones. The largest one is for my living room and the others will find their way either to Etsy or a craft fair. We shall see. I'll try and get some photos up tomorrow or so.

I hope everyone is enjoying a peaceful weekend with people you love. :)

PS...I forgot to tell you this. I got my very first, very own, brand spankin' new iPhone yesterday!! Guess what else? I already need an iPhone intervention.
Hot, hot weather today which does NOT match the landscape. Many trees are already wearing their magnificent colors, some have piles of leaves under them, and the pumpkins are continuing to grow into their Halloween splendor. Where is that Autumn chill? Where is the smell of woodsmoke on the breeze? Where is my desire to make apple crisp?

Look what showed up in our yard tonight!

Raise your hand really should be in bed by now. Yeah, me too. 'Night. :)
Hi there. I just listed a few more pendants in my Etsy can see them in my Etsy sidebar thingy.

Also, my bff and I went to a beautiful craft fair today and I was inspired. I think I'll make a few sachets, some with lavender and some with balsam. I'll be listing them on Etsy as soon as I get them done. :)

I hope everyone is enjoying a peaceful weekend.

Almost Fall

Hi there and a good Friday evening to you. Just wanted to share a few backyard photos with you before I hit the hay.

My studio...I love the way the shadows lengthen as Fall approaches.

My garden is bursting!

One end of my studio...look at those flowers!

I think the flowers are called "turtleheads".

One pumpkin made it through the summer!

Ripening grapes with a most intoxicating scent.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. :)

Here's to another Friday, heralding the onset of the weekend!

A wolf spider decided that our main bathroom would be a great place to live! AAHHH!! What a way to start the day!! Luckily one daughter found it and another daughter killed it. (The third daughter just continued sleeping cutely on the couch, but that's ok. :)) I have a motto that if a spider sees me coming and hides, then it's waaay too smart for me, especially before 6 a.m.!! And so the day begins....

Primitive Pantry Cakes

Hi all. Well, I survived another Monday, and that's a good thing. I think that this year's crop of middle-schoolers is a lot less "trying" than last year's, thank heavens. I actually had enough energy to do a little craft work earlier this evening, and that's a great thing!

Here's another batch of the primitive pantry cakes I made over the weekend; tonight I wrapped them for the craft fair they're heading to. Their scent is absolutely, vanilla, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Oh my. Too bad they're not for eating!

Everything smells so good when I'm working on them!
Dear 5:45 a.m. I don't like you, especially on a Monday morning.

Raise your hand if
you are beyond glad that it's Friday!! And then raise your hand if you just figured out how to play with all of the COOL font stuff on your blog!

And THEN raise your hand's cold enough that you had to close the windows in the house!!

Raise your hand of those goofy little "Smart Cars" passed you on the highway. That's when you know you're going too darn slow!

Sunday, September 5, 2010

Now THIS is my kind of weather! Sat on the back porch with my first coffee and the temperature was just about 50 degrees....finally! There's a wonderful, chilly breeze blowing, the sky is that brilliant blue, and the sun is shining.

Today I'll be making a dirt cake for our baby's 18th birthday tomorrow. It seems like just yesterday she arrived, and now, she's starting college. Where has the time gone? And why don't I look 18 years older? (yeah, right)

Bob and I might try to fit in a little geo-caching today, too, before we head to our niece's Labor Day cookout. It should be a good day. I hope everyone else has a good day, too. Be safe.

Found it! I found the Autumn countdown; thank you Google. :)

Oops. I accidentally deleted the cute little "20 days til Autumn" widget. Anyone know how to find it again? That's what I get for "fixin' what ain't broke"!
