Fall Colors....


It is a rainy, dark, day -- but even that can't take away the beauty of the Fall colors. Before all the leaves fall, wanted to get at least a couple photos of the fall colors -- these are just standing in the front in the drizzle --but how pretty it is :-)

Favorite LYS not really so "local".......

My favorite LYS is really not so "local" -- Most of you know I make trips to the "city" a couple times a month -- I usually go 1/2 to 1 hour early because my destination is close to my favorite LYS -- albeit, "local" in this case is over 40 miles away. Matters not -- a trip to Sister Arts Studio is always a delight. These pictures were just taken with my phone, but wanted to share my favorite place with you. You will see some of Rebecca Danger's delightful monsters in the window (see previous post) -- and if you look closely, you will see Donna in one of the photos. If any of you are in the Chicago area, be sure to look up Donna and Sister Arts Studio

Alberta the Happy Little Monster


Alberta, the happy little monster is finished. She is my first little monster (of the knitted variety, LOL). She "sits" about 8 inches tall and was made from a pattern by Rebecca Danger called Albert the Absent Minded Monster -- but with the pinks in mine I named her Alberta. You can find Rebecca's fun patterns on her blog by clicking HERE.

Here is the link to Rebecca's ETSY SHOP.

Ouch & Getting Ready to head South ~~~~~

ALBERTA ~ The Happy Little Monster
Ouch, I'm getting squashed under here -- is it really necessary to do this just to hold my mouth on -- my eyes are popping out with the pressure -- well, tomorrow I should be able to appear here all done -- it is rather embarrassing this way :-)

GETTING READY TO HEAD SOUTH ~~~~~


Yesterday the birds took over the spruce in the back yard --there were hundreds of them in there -- getting ready for their trip south. This is the first time ever I have seen them in that tree going crazy. There were Cedar Waxwings, Robins, Cardinals, Chickadees and a few others. Mostly you can see the Cedar Waxwings in this photo -- but if you look close at the upper right you can see a Cardinal. They were all so lovely.

Another Super Fall Day


Today I met up with DD, DSIL and 4 DGS at our local Pumpkin Farm. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and if you check out the slide show, you will see all the fun things we were able to do in one afternoon. One of the most fun things was standing "face to face" with a beautiful giraffe and having him eat oh so gently from our hands. What a thrill. But best of all was sharing a lovely afternoon with family. To see the slide show, click the VIEW ALL IMAGES button below.

How about a ride on a camel? video
