I sold my old thermos that I usually use for a Fall vase, so I had to come up with something else to use. Doesn't this old oil can look so great with sunflowers in it? Here's to repurposing!
It's Julie's birthday today, so I dedicate this blog to her! I won't mention her age, but let's just say she's been climbing that "hill" for a while now. Have a great day Jeej! (We call her Gigi or Jeej for short).
A good friend of ours is putting on a small artfest and invited us to be a part of it. How fun! It will be a little different than what we are used to, but we are looking forward to seeing the other artisans wares and are so honored to be asked! Come for a visit, stay for a beer!
After Elkhorn- our last market of the summer, we headed straight up to Mom and Dad's cabin in the Northwoods for a much needed break. The great thing about having a cabin way up North, is that you get to see the fall colors a little earlier than at home. The colors up here are magnificent right now.
Mom loves these old pick up trucks, so when we saw this rusted out oldie on the side of a back road, we had to take its picture.
The mushrooms are so abundant right now. They are peeking out of every nook and cranny.
Even though we are supposed to be relaxing and taking a break, we had to head to some local garage sales. We picked up a bunch of old screen doors. Anne's going to put the middle one on her future chicken coop.
It is Cranberry Fest this weekend up here in Eagle River. You can tour the cranberry marshes, stroll the main street antique market, or head to the fairgrounds for the main festivities. These bins are actually in the local supermarket. A pound of fresh cranberries for 99 cents. I'll take two!
