Early October Garden

Anemone

The sun was pouring in through the windows...and it rained for 3 days before.  I felt the need to head out and see what's been going on and if anything made it through the hard rains. Several weeks ago we had a hard enough frost to kill all my Impatients so I wasn't able to […]

Vintage toolboxes and vintage fan

It's been a while since I've shared some of my junkin finds!  But that doesn't mean I haven't been out junkin!  Lately I've been trying to restrain myself since Mr. C has been complaining "WE HAVE NO PLACE TO PUT ALL THIS STUFF". I hate to admit it but he's right!  But how do you […]

Fall Acorns and Leaves
