Yesterday I went with a friend to a place called Shaker Woods. They had Christmas in the woods which was a huge craft show, all set up in the woods. It was a bit chilly but the cold didn't stop us from spending 4 hours walking around browsing at all the wonderful things. It was of course mostly Christmas items but there were a lot of other great craft items as well. Believe it or not the only thing I came home with was a package of dip mix and the most delicious bottle of steak sauce that I have ever had. Debbie was trying to get ideas for gifts that she could make for Christmas and was taking notes on the things she liked the best. I probably should have been doing the same but I always think I'm going to be able to remember these things once I get home. I did see several things that I would have loved to have bought, unfortunately they were all out of my price range. (Have I ever told you how cheap I am?) Maybe that could be another blog post....lol
So this is what it's looking like in my neck of the woods these days. You can see there is a definite look of autumn around us. The clouds aren't real in this picture, I did some playing around with it. It might have looked better had I left the leaves a brighter color but I liked it a bit more muted.
And finally to finish my post off for the day, that first picture up there at the top, turned into this.
I just started messing around with different things and before I knew it this was staring back at me from the monitor. I liked it so I kept it.
And that wraps it up for the night. Have a great night and a greater day tomorrow.
