The maple and oak leaves have been glorious this year. The crystal clear blue of the sky in the mornings makes you want to wake early and be glad you are alive. Unfortunately this morning we woke up to our first bit of snow.
Mr. and Mrs. Santa are wooden lawn figures, but wouldn’t they look great at big pillows? They were published in the Family Circle Magazine, December 11, 1984. They could also adorn a wall hanging, worked in Red work embroidery to be included in a vintage quilt or simply painted on smaller wooden plaques for ornaments. I wonder who the little girl is? Where is she now? She sure is cute.
October has outdone itself this year. What a beautiful month. Clear, chilly mornings have given us the bluest of skies and the plants glow with their own beauty. I was out removing the bean plants and had to stop to take photos.
The spruce needles were decorated with crystals of dew as they captured the sun’s rays.
One lonely milkweed seed resting in the grass captured the magic of this glorious morning.
Even the Scotch thistle out in the field glowed under the sun. What a beautiful morning to be alive !
Alice loves Thanksgiving in October. It reminds her how fortunate she is to have lots to eat everyday. Halloween is wonderful as she can dress up in her princess dress and go out for trick or treat. Her orange pumpkins glow in the dark to keep her safe. Tommy also remembers how lucky he is each Thanksgiving day, but he loves Halloween. He can wear his superhero costume and mask to go door to door when the night is dark and spooky. He reminds everybody to trick or treat safely.
