Harvest Time

Good morning, my friends. I hope you are doing well. I had a great time this weekend with my Mom. We spent some time at the Country Living Fair and then did a lot more shopping around town. I have a few photos from the Fair to share with you. I also wanted to share the link for a store that we visited called European Papers. They mostly sell supplies for bookbinding but also have some things for collages or cardmaking. I found a few bits and bobs that will find their way onto some cards in the near future. It was a fun shop to poke around but they also offer a full online catalog.

First, a card, then my photos. Its been a rainy past few days here and I love it. Its a little chilly, and I love bundling up... the trees are just starting to change colors and the house is full of the smell of a Fall Harvest candle. I wish I could bottle this feeling forever.

Something very fall-ish using Friendship Jar and the Fall Fillers from Papertrey Ink. I wasn't in much of a mood to color, so I just highlighted the image with Copics. It reminds me of a sepia-toned photograph. The patterned paper is from the Autumn Abundance Collection, still one of my favorites.

Here are the photos from the Fair, you can click on them for a larger version.  Enjoy!

Antiques galore!

Pretty fall table, with pinecone-topped fabric acorns..

Lots of pottery and ceramics..

A wagon load of textile pumpkins..

Hand-dyed yarn..

And the pumpkin tower.

I hope we can make it again next year! It was a great start to the Fall season.

And before I go.. It was a real surprise (and treat!) to be chosen as last week's winner for The Shabby Tea Room challenge. I want to thank the lovely ladies over there for that, and can't wait to try my hand at this week's challenge!

Have a fantastic day! (Tonight I'm headed to the hockey game! Yeah!!)
