October Fest Blog Hop 2013

 In the fall we do a lot of this.  Most of the time I try to mow it over and over so we don't have to rake, but this fall has been so wet and the leaves thick.  Frankly 2 acres is too much to take care of sometimes.  I yearn for a tiny little postage stamp of a yard.
 We also do a lot of this in the fall.  Jeff and I were married on the 27th and we did a lot of driving that year too.
 And we see a lot of this.  I have shows every other weekend this year.  In past years October has been my month of every weekend shows.  Some how they managed to spread themselves out this year but we do go later into November.
 It helps when you are stuck in the car for hours at a time to play with the features of the camera in your phone.  I also knit and have already finished a couple of hats for my Halos of Hope project.

Of course I have to make some fall beads and when I think of fall I think of leaves.

Everyone thinks of different things when they think of fall this is just a few of my ideas.

It is so interesting to see what autumn means to each one of us! The leaves you've made are really beautiful!

Liz E said...

Your leaf beads are simply lovely. Safe travels and I would only rake the area close to my house. That's way too many leaves!

The little leaves are so cute, and I love the different colors. Hope your shows are more prolific than the leaves in your yard :) Christie

It's nice to see a different array of colors for fall. I enjoyed your hand made leaves.

Tanya McGuire said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments. We got back last night just ahead of the temps going to freezing and making ice so not a bad drive. It has turned into winter here there is no fall left I am afraid.
