Autumn in NY

Kathleen, and my dear niece, being good kids and raking for me.
*Note Madeline with the heavy garden They did trade off, so Kathleen's not ALL bad. ;)

This picture was taken from the road in front of my house, looking out to the main road.
Don't forget, you can click to enlarge!
I took this out my rear kitchen window the other morning. This picture doesn't begin to do justice to how pretty it really was in the early morning light:
I took these on a back road near Athens the other day
on my way home from an installation in Catskill. So pretty!
I just had to pull over and pull out my camera!

Homecoming Dance

Well, no dancing with boys yet, but they had a fun time at the dance, and stayed until it ended at 11pm! Kathleen's feet were killing her--she left her heels on all night, and danced like the crazy kid she is! This was her first homecoming. They went to the football game on Friday night, slept in a friend's camper, and then the dance was Saturday night. Needless to say, she was exhausted on Sunday!

Fall Festivals

Last weekend we went to two fall festivals. On Saturday, we drove over to Lee, MA and went to the Berkshire Botanical Gardens fall festival. There were lots of crafters, a flea market, food vendors, and gardens to explore. We met up with an old high school friend of mine who just bought a house in Lee. They live in the city, and wanted a place to escape to. So, I'm going to help them decorate a little bit. I wish I had taken pictures. The house is gorgeous, and old, and beautifully kept. And the grasscloth wallpapaper is to DIE for. *Sigh*
I'll take pics the next time I'm over there.
On Sunday, we went to the Bronck House Museum fall festival in Coxsackie, NY. I posted pics from this festival in 2007, if you'd care to check the archives. It wasn't that different this year, but it's nice to go and meet up with neighborhood friends and people we don't see often enough. You've gotta' love small towns!

There were horse and cart rides:
And what really had us excited was the old Dutch kitchen and all the hand-forged Dutch hardware:

This is the building that houses that awesome dutch fireplace above:
Cute, right?!

These trellises were over at the Botanical Gardens in Lee. They look simple enough to make. I should get BF on that right away. Maybe he can use all the branches that have fallen off the tree into the yard over the last day or so: :-P
I especially love this one. It would be a wonderful centerpiece for a garden.
Oh, and I love this gorgeous kid. She actually posed for me willingly! I love that!

Again, Happy Fall, Y'all! :)
