Waiting On The Leaves

Some people probably think I am nutty but I love to hear leaves in the fall when they get crunchy..... More work I suppose because we have to mulch them but I still love the time of year....... We have had rain the last couple days and the leaves are now dropping............ It won't be long..............I told hubby we will have to take our yearly drive when all the leaves are turning on the trees....Yellows and Reds...Just beautiful.....Sure makes for a pretty drive.

Beautiful day

Today was just beautiful. Warmed up this afternoon and it was so pleasant outdoors. Kyra and Sherman were on the porch watching me. Just a little simple fall decorating.... Some Bittersweet, a few Mums, etc....Country decorating...

Lots and Lots and Lots To do For The Fall Open House Coming Up!

We have another open house coming up so I thought instead of boring you with this I would show you a couple pics of  "our children" Kyra and Sherman.....What a pair they are and how different from one another they are... 

                             Sherman lays on his back a lot

Old Things

I have a as I call "sickness" for old things and things that are broke like these old dishes. I know a lot of people would throw them away but I love them and think they tell a story. As a matter of fact the plates shown here were tagged with really old tape and told what pieces were used for what. One of them is labeled "Mama's chicken platter" . I find myself thinking about times of long ago and what was used for what. What a simpler but harder life they had.

I know it has been a while since I have been on here so I thought it is time! So busy these days as it seems everyone is. Helping with my mother, my 99 year old grandmother, and just day to day things. Time is flying by don't you think? Almost the end of July already! We are now a part of the Country Neighbors' Tour so we now have 3 open house's a year instead of 2. I have not been "as good" with my shop hours lately but this can't be helped. My family is more important to me  and people know they can call and make an appt. anytime so hope I don't have too many people mad at me. Let's see.... Been working in the gardens and loving this. I find this very relaxing and calming to say the least. I hope everyone is having a good Summer and taking some time to relax and enjoy the simple things.  

    I have finally planted some Sunflowers! Have always wanted some!
    Mom doesn't like her picture taken. I think she is beautiful.
        My wonderful husband and my grandmother.
                                 My grandmother and I
                             We can't forget Sherman and Kyra.
