Wrapping Up Another Week...

Today I went to the dump with my husband I haven't been in a while so it was nice to shop the swap shop.
Yes my dump has a lovely newish building that has a large room with shelves all around you can put things that someone else may want. Or you can shop it yourself (free) and as our dump attendant
always says they they have a great return policy.

I found some wonderful books! Getting ready to tuck in for those long winter nights ugh!

I found these on my walk the other day. Shades of what is to come.

And while weeding my garden I found this guy.
I know there is a lot of old folk lore around these guys. If they are super fuzzy it means lots of snow and cold. Not sure what he is saying for the winter to come...

But my fairy roses are on their second bloom this year and as you can see by the buds they are going to be blooming for awhile yet.

We are in for a hot week I do not like the humidity but this too shall pass.
Have a great week everyone!

Sweet B went to fairy night again this year. I made her head piece from things she picked in the yard.

And then you go around and meet all the fairies. This was a flower fairy and each fairy gives you a gift so you can make your own fairy house at home.

And there are a lot of fairies! they did a group shot of all the working fairies a very sweet groupl

Then Sat bright and early I headed for Maine and my sweet friends place at the beach. The weather couldn't have been better.

Or the skies prettier....

Or the food yummier! yes that is steamers in the back yummm!

She also gave me the sweetest birthday gifts these are little canning jars with the flower frog on the top!

And lovely earrings does she know me or what???

We also went thrifting and I found this pair of pottery hand crafted candle holders.

I just love them! 6.00 what a buy. Well the weekend is coming to an end and on to another week. 

I love august because the days can be very hot but it always cools down at night for good sleeping. 
Have a wonderful week.

A Wonderful Birthday!

Husband wanted to take me to brunch but I decided a walk and breakfast at home would be best..

Then in the afternoon we went for a paddle on the sweetest little pond and saw the baby loon following it's mother. 

I had birthday calls and emails, with lots happening on facebook it makes me very thankful for family and friends. Wed night is fairy night at a local garden center. Sweet B is going to be a fairy again. So we will have my birthday dinner before we fly off for fairy night...

I dug out another pattern to work on that needs to be done before Halloween. I am enjoying it very much and it is a good change from the stair risers.

August has come in with wonderful weather. Warm days, cool breezy nights my kind of weather.
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Berry Berry Good

The free concert in the park was amazing! Big band sound!
We enjoyed it so much.
The beginning of last week was lovely warm and breezy. We were able to have our first fire. And then it got hot again. 
We had our daughter and family over Friday for dinner and some friends in Sunday for dinner both very fun.

Sunday we decided to go to a pick your own blueberry patch.
That is husband with a bucket around his neck.

And it was loaded. We have been going to a pond to pick but there are so many pickers now it is hard to get some.

 like most places in this area it comes with a view. 

But we were very excited pickers and picked a bit to much. 8 quarts!!! lots of blueberry goodies coming our way this winter I think.

I had a bout of stomach problems (nothing anyone can catch) and I am on meds that make me feel icky but this too shall pass.
It is thundering now but there is a nice cool breeze billowing through the curtains ( sweet relief) 
Have a wonderful week.

Au Natural....

There is a beautiful barn...
Down a sweet dirt lane...

That was beautiful both front and back..

With an amazing silo....

With windows that tilted in....

That has an amazing woolery...

That holds the fleece and yarn made from the sheep in the fields...

That hosted an all natural dye weekend. All of these colors come from nature. And since I was the only hooker I dyed some of my wool fabric too! Can you believe these colors come from plants?

There were spinners and drop spindle demonstrations. 

Needle felting too. It was such a wonderful weekend the only issue it was hotter than the hinges to hell!!!! Lord it was hot. So we did fans and lots of water and ice cream. I felt very lucky to invited to join this amazing group of fiber artists.( and yes I had not met these ladies before) I hope to be back next year.
But back at home our grand daughter was not here but those fairies kept building on! Now they have settled right in.

And my gardens have bloomed. This is called Priscilla's garden after my sweet friend who passed away a few years ago. All the plants and hens and chicks came from her garden over the years.

Tonight we headed to the lake got a table and watched the boats and listened to the band.
We even got to see the big one come and go.

First time for clams this summer and they were very good!
I am tired and hot and sticky I am headed for a cold shower and the only place that has air conditioning in the house (our bedroom) 
I do not do well with the heat so I will be more than glad when it passes.
Have a wonderful week!

High On A Mountain Top

We had a very busy week but lots of fun too!
Monday after work we packed a dinner and hiked up 
a smaller mountain. It took us about 45 minutes.

Husband enjoying the view. It was a lovely night with a cool breeze at the top.

Dessert was a little dove bar with just the right saying.

The reason for the hike? The NH music festival had a few musicians who made the hike and played till sundown. A lovely way to spend the evening.

Wed after dinner we went to concert on the common to see the Beatles!!! Truly they sounded and looked just like them. So fun to dance to the music of our youth.

Sat we picked up our sweet B and had a very fun overnight.
There was a lot a lot of fairy house building going on all over our property. So much fun!!! Then we waited for the night to come.
They came by the hundreds! We had never seen so many fire flies in our yard before. They were bringing the fairies to look at the new houses we built. There is nothing more magical
 than a child who believes in faeries. 
We used things we had here from sock darners, marbles etc.

We even found a secret fairy door!

Then Sunday morning bright and early we headed to another mountain. Loaded on the ski lift....

To have a brunch with family at the top. This is Cranmore Mt the mountain my sweet B ski's in the winter! Another beautiful day, clear, we could see for miles. Brunch was basic but really tasty and wonderful. Such a fun way to have breakfast and be with family.

So ends another busy week week. Back to work tomorrow but I am very thankful for this past week and all the fun.
Have a wonderful week.
