This is outside our kitchen...While having my morning coffee.
We are swamped with tourist leaf peeping this weekend.
So we tried to get off the beaten path...
We both have lived in New England all of our life.
Mostly in New Hampshire....
But the colors, the smell, the sweater weather never cease to
to go straight to our souls and we have to soak up it all up! Some falls are better than others but all are just splendid! I am always sad to see it fade away.
I met up with my friend on Thursday for a church rummage sale.
And we went to a local old mill for a rug show.
This is 92 inches by 96 inches The woman who drew and started to hook it, died before she was finished with it, and it was given to I believe her nephew and wife and they finished it. It is on loan from a local museum. This is a picture of a tour boat that was on a large lake in our area.
This artist is Kathi Hooper ( I hope I spelled that correctly)
She paints and hooks. I love her work lots of movement and wonderful color!
Some of her art work as well. A lovely show and I do have more to show you later.
We are starting to get chilly nights so I changed out our summer sheer curtains for our winter curtains. While we do not have to worry about privacy it is nice to shut out the cold night.
And have them wide open for the day. I bought these curtain rods at a antiques store and they were not much. I spayed them black and have used them for years. They go all the way back against the wall if you want them wide open.
For the past several years someone has been dropping off cornstalks for our mail box. Usually we find them leaned against the mailbox, but this year they tied them on. I love the mystery of it and it makes my husband and I smile each time we go in and out of the driveway. Small town living is just the best!
I have to work tomorrow so we ended our day with our first fire in the fire pit. So relaxing and ready to start another week.
Husband's appointment with the specialist was good-ish. He feels that we should do the wait and see as his blood work has come back to normal. He has ideas of what he thinks is happening or happened. We go back next month. So far so good.
I have had some new followers welcome and thank you for joining me.
Have a wonderful week!
