It’s going to take me some time before I can bring my Fall things all together but it will happen – believe me!
I’m getting so tired of looking at all the Summer colors and Geraniums – enough is enough, right??? Being our Summer started so early it has been a longer one than normal…SO COME ON FALLL – get here soon.
Friday my brother/wife came over for the day so I used my ‘charm’ and e-mailed Dan DiPaolo to see if we could come over to the barn shop as my brother had never been out there and I so wanted him to see Dan’s place. Being the sweetheart Dan is he said yes – so just to cover my tracks I baked him a pan of Apple Crisp…it works every time!
Dan is only open Sat. and Sun so this was extremely generous of him.
I was hoping he had his Mums and Pumpkins and sure enough he did! Lots of them, and silly me with no camera! His place was all decked out with Fall everywhere – inside and out.
I bought what I set out to buy and now just waiting to get rid of Summer ‘stuff’ so I can get it all arranged.
Oh to have an old wooden wagon or wheel barrow for my courtyard to put them in – anyone got one to spare!!!
I got one Yellow, 2 Brick Red and a Bronze/Gold Mums along with these Pumpkins.
I loooove the blue-green one. He named it but it went right out my head the second he said what it was
(remember you can click on the photos to make them larger)
We also stopped at our favorite shop in Rochester – Finder’s Keepers.
I never ‘DON’T’ find anything there and Friday was no different.
Like I said in my other post – this is the year of Pumpkin’s for me it seems because I bought a hugie there. It’s not real but looks very much so.
My poor dining room table is beginning to get over run with Fall – I have been buying it and placing it all in one place until I am ready to decorate with it – so I really, really do want to get going on it.
I also bought a faux Bittersweet vine and a large crow – had one years ago and it ‘died’ – just got too old…
Oh and the boxes the Crow is on – they were from a garage sale we stopped at first. Got 4 boxes $1 each.
So then if that wasn’t enough running around today Doug and I headed north of Milwaukee to Holy Hill for their annual craft show.
Now I will say this for the record…I have been wanting to go to this show for YEARS…but after getting in there I won’t bother again. A very, very nice show but it was 80% fine art, jewelry and shawls/hats.
Denise who has some of my products in her shop had a booth so I bought some little Pumpkins (there I go again!) from her and then some fabric Candy Corn from another vendor…that’s it! Wasn’t worth the hours drive and the crowds but it was a beautiful setting I will say that.
But after yesterday I really over did my discs/sciatica and tonight I am paying the price. So tomorrow we’re laying low.
So there’s my weekend…and like I said I’m so ready to stay at home tomorrow, cook a pot roast, sew on my orders and relax.
No running around, no decorating just staying in.
Remember my CHALLENGE…you have only a few days left to enter. There are 33 so far and I posted a picture of one of the drawing prized…ore will come.
Thanks too, to my new followers – so nice to see you…come on back and visit.
