A Sunday Drive . . .

Well, hello Mama!

Her pretty baby that looks like she was born in the spring. 

"Can you move it along??  We're trying to eat here!!"  : )

Urban decay.

We have a sweet little nature center where kids can go to visit and learn all about, well, nature.  : )  This is the first time I noticed this sign.  I'll have to come back earlier in the summer next year.  It looked like most of the flowers had already come and gone for the season.

I had no idea that there were so many wild raspberries growing in our little town.  They were everywhere on this road.  They always remind me of childhood summers when we had several bushes in the backyard of the house I grew up in.

It was a gorgeous day with low humidity and temps in the high 70's.  Rare for this time of year in New York.  The temps are slowly creeping back up again but the humidity is still pretty low and that makes a world of difference.  For me, it's the difference between enjoying being outdoors and wanting to crawl out of my skin when I'm outdoors.  Lol!!  TRUTH!!

I visited Michael's Craft Store the other day and it was filled with fall items and they're even starting to sneak in Christmas stuff.  Like retail, crafters always have to be one or two seasons ahead so I understand the rush.  On the other hand, fall I can handle.  I can always handle fall.  Definitely not yet ready for the hustle and bustle of Christmas.  However, I'm now off to work in my Etsy shops and guess what I'm going to be working on today . . . 

Christmas Creativity Kits!!!  Yes, indeed!!!  : )

Happy Tuesday!!  ~ Wendy  xo

When people complain about seasonal things showing so early, I explain that us crafters need to get stuff early for Christmas gifts.

Just glorious Wendy....and those deer....beautiful.

I visited New York in December 2013 and if I didn't do anything else the one thing I wanted to do was visit Michael's.
Our hotel wasn't too far from Columbus Avenue so a walk to Michael's was taken every evening. I bought so much in there I had to leave two of my best bath towels and half my clothes behind to fit it all in.
So glad I got to experience it in the lead up to Christmas-x-

Such beautiful pictures! You live in a lovely part of the country. I don't mind seeing Christmas items out right now. I love fall, too and I'm looking forward to doing some decorating!

Those deer are so precious! And that old stone wall! And that trail through the nature preserve!
It's so nice to see all the green in your photos!
