Friday, December 1st is going to be a busier “First Friday” than usual because it will include the yearly tree lighting. Many of the stores will be open late (7-4pm).
My husband is part of the Lunaria Gallery and many of the artists will be representing that night. If you are nearby, join the fun!
If you won’t be in the area, you can still check out the gallery by clicking on their website: www.lunariagallery.com

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with a small circle of family and friends. Cheesecake and laughter….what could be better than that?

Wish I could take credit for the great picture of a baby squirrel. Alas, I could not find the photographer listed. The reason for such a sweet ball of fluff is that we have a fourth squirrel in our back yard. It’s a wee one and had such a hard time figuring out how to navigate the bird feeder. We were rooting for it, and now it takes from the feeder like a champ.
Two feeders and four squirrels make for fine entertainment. They do not easily take turns. The birds, however, are patient and fly between the feeders and the water fountain with such grace. Backyard beauties, all.
Goodbye Halloween mantel; hello fall! I kept a few of the pumpkins around and added some leaves, flowers, and keepsakes. The ceramic covered corn bowl on the left is something from my youth. It still holds the mini-ear spears inside. The goal was to eat the buttery ear of corn without wasting butter on your fingers. Ha!
To the right is some golden wheat in Lucite, a gift from my sister years ago when I was homesick for Kansas. The centerpiece is a print from the inspiring Kelly Rae Roberts with the following quote:
“Giving opens the way for receiving.” — Florence Scovel Shinn
Enjoy the Season!
