This is about all the decorating I did for halloween. I do more fall decor than events. The Hansel and Gretel book , looked scary to me, so I thought it would be great. The picture isn't the greatest though, sorry.
Back from our trip. We did leave the town of Bedford, Pa. a little early yesterday morning with about an inch of snow on the ground and snowing harder down the road. But thank goodness we arrived safely back at home. So sorry for all the people of the states that got a horrid snow storm . Their trees were still full of Autumn color. They will need our prayers. Our time in D.C. was so touching, with all the history.
Ted loves to work in wood. This is just a small sample of the things he has truned on the lathe. He handier than a shirt pocket. The little dish looking thing, is a trinket holder. We make gifts for my sisters, and our children for Christmas every year. I design something and draw it out. We buy the wood . Ted makes the item. If I am lucky, he lets me help with the stain:):)
I got this little teapot from the goodwill. It has no lid, but was too cute to pass up. It says Royal Staffordshire Pottery, Wilkinson, England on the bottom. Maybe one day I'll find a lid , but in the mean time I'll use it as a vase.
These beautiful trees are bare now , since we had gusty winds this weekend. It seems as if autumn came and went in the short span of 3 weeks. Oh no way am I wanting to even get a glimpse "Old Man Winter". Hope he stays far away. :):)
Rain on Thursday,so we took a short trip thru the treasure mart. Loved the old section of iron fence. Too pricey for me:):) The wagon wheels were in great shape. Plenty of dining tables. Inside junking is great on a rainy afternoon.
Am I the only one that thinks autumn came fast ,is almost going just as fast??? The mums are bloomed and even fading somewhat. Here's some nice tomatos, which surprises me. Hope all of you are enjoying the weather. That your families are near you , to spend time with , while this last.
