We passed this home with an abundant yard behind it to grow this autumn crop of pumpkins. Does anything say autumn like pumpkins?
I would like to update for my regular readers, that we went back many times to the farm stand that in late June was selling imported fruit and vegetables. As some readers commented, we were just too early. We went back often and have been enjoying the fresh and tasty fruits and vegetables from that farm. We were there this morning and picked up tomatoes, a huge cantaloupe, some peppers and a nice chunk of Amish cheese, all local.
I made another book!
I love this paper I bought at Hollander's. It is textured, feels handmade and the bird is metallic gold. I had to "fussy-cut" it to get the random birds just where I wanted them. It was a little challenging to work with, too. The paper absorbed the glue very quickly and took quite some time to dry out. It also stretched when damp, but I just had to be patient and work carefully.
I am still hoping to get some more entries into our Empty MailBox Contest. There is still time. The envelopes need to be postmarked September 30th at the latest. Josh and the ladies at the PO have been giving me a hard time about the echo in my mailbox. I am counting on you to help me out.
