It's Julie's birthday today, so I dedicate this blog to her! I won't mention her age, but let's just say she's been climbing that "hill" for a while now. Have a great day Jeej! (We call her Gigi or Jeej for short).
A good friend of ours is putting on a small artfest and invited us to be a part of it. How fun! It will be a little different than what we are used to, but we are looking forward to seeing the other artisans wares and are so honored to be asked! Come for a visit, stay for a beer!
After Elkhorn- our last market of the summer, we headed straight up to Mom and Dad's cabin in the Northwoods for a much needed break. The great thing about having a cabin way up North, is that you get to see the fall colors a little earlier than at home. The colors up here are magnificent right now.
The white Birch trees really stand out this time a year against the changing leaves.
Mom loves these old pick up trucks, so when we saw this rusted out oldie on the side of a back road, we had to take its picture.
The mushrooms are so abundant right now. They are peeking out of every nook and cranny.
The kids love to hit the mushrooms with sticks to make a big "smoke" cloud. Too bad that "smoke" is really a million tiny spores....looks like we'll have a million more mushrooms next year!
Even though we are supposed to be relaxing and taking a break, we had to head to some local garage sales. We picked up a bunch of old screen doors. Anne's going to put the middle one on her future chicken coop.
The sky was so beautiful today. The clouds were so abundant and choppy. They were the perfect back drop against the fall colors.
You know you are in the Northwoods when the gas station is stocked with wildlife feed. This one is full with corn, carrots and apples. Lucky deer around here!
It is Cranberry Fest this weekend up here in Eagle River. You can tour the cranberry marshes, stroll the main street antique market, or head to the fairgrounds for the main festivities. These bins are actually in the local supermarket. A pound of fresh cranberries for 99 cents. I'll take two!
