A few of my favorites from Etsy. I plan on taking a well needed break from here until after the holidays. I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and enjoys it with their friends and family!

I love Christmas time. The sparkle and lights just make me warm all over. These are a few of my favorite things.. shiny red glass ornaments...
Antique santas from Christmas past..
This lovely turkey image is for my personal blog readers. Thank you for visiting! My time is spread thin because of my other blogs, and I feel I have been neglecting you. My posts have gotten a bit different lately as I am having a great time playing with my camera. We will return to our regularly scheduled crappy posts soon! :) I think I'll take a break from my posts for a few days and spend my time visiting everyone that I am so Thankful for in Bloglandia.
The picture above I took a few years ago. The corn we were feeding them obviously was not as tasty as the what the little birds were getting.
Has anyone else seen this catalog? It is absolutely fabulous! We get one for the holiday season, and I love flipping through the pages.
Mind you, we never wore $2000 ski jackets or $300 sunglasses but the essence is there. I love it! Will I ever buy something from it? Perhaps some socks, when I feel rich. But at $36 a pair, probably not.
Dream with me...
We went to the Sandwich Fair today. (Sandwich, NH -the town, not sandwich, as in the food) Oh, do I have some pictures for you!! The top image was taken off of the bridge that connects the rides/games at the fair to the animals/exhibits. The church is in the center of the small town we live in. My husband's best friend was married there this weekend. We went to the wedding, but stayed only a brief time at the reception because of my hubby's cold. Isn't that tree enormous?! That picture was taken in the cemetery where my father in law was buried in May. My husband and I have many relatives there. The third image is of the house/barn roof that is beside our grocery store. The tree in their yard was just a lovely shade of red, I couldn't resist. The last image is of the amazing horse farm that I had photographed this same weekend, last year. I think the autumn color is more vibrant this year.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
Some more peeks from around the house and town. More Martha rats! I found them scampering over our Fritz Robbins prints.. those rascally devils.
And the one above is from an old cemetery not too far from where we live. I just love the black iron fence and the thin headstones. The foliage is peaking here right now, but alas, I haven't taken any photos. Perhaps tomorrow I'll go out for a drive. My husband has his brutal cold back so I might need to get out the house with the kids.
I have been decorating for Halloween. This year is by far the most done up the house has been. I cut out rat silhouettes from Martha Stewart's Living Oct '07. They now are scampering all over the kitchen area. The one above is peeking down over the edge of the mantel casing. The kids think they are lots of fun, as Ratatouille is one of their favorite movies. The witch profile was also another tidbit from Martha's magazine. I cut it out of black paper, framed it up, then grubbied the frame and glass with brown and black paint.
