In Full Force

Well while we were talking about it I didn't even realized it happened. Walking to work today I was bombarded by leaves of every color of the sun! They cascaded in the wind and blanket the ground below. I was enveloped in such a warm feeling even though it is blistery outside.

Last night while crafting I looked out the picture window and stared at all the cute orange pumpkins that adorned the law across the street. That mixed with my little Halloween painting I was craving a pumpkin spiced latte... My fav! Yummmy.. I went to my espresso machine (that I barely understand) but my luck out of coffee. So I had to wait till this morning and ran to get a Starbucks signature spice latte and decorated it with my little knitted coffee coozy. WARM GOODNESS.

This painting below I did for my Aunt who is a 911 dispatcher in NJ. She loves telling me stories about what an awful person Bonjovi's wife is. Or should I say rude. She love our country and especially the symbol of the American Flag so when I gift her things I always try to use that element. Just like the last 6 years I have been buying my mom snowmen for Christmas.

Oh well. I am going to go and enjoy the wonderful thoughts of Autumn. This weekend I am going way up to Northern NY to visit my parents who live an hour away. (You wouldn't believe the difference a hour north will make on the color of the trees) I will bask in its glory and hope to have some amazing pictures. Also this weekend is the 'World Largest Garage Sale' At one time it was in the Guinness World Record book (although I don't think it is anymore) This sale is the turning point of when I realize it is Fall. The sale is in my home town (and yes it is HUGE) and I have been going (at 5am) since I was a little girl and my mom and dad use to set up a booth at an apartment building my parents owned in the middle of main street. Fondest memories.

Fall Like Thoughts & Smooches,
Steph

****ETSY GRAND OPENING****




I am here to report that I am very pleased so far with the amount of views I have recieved on my items thus far. Far more than eBay ever.... I hope you all enjoy the offerings. My mom came over yesterday and was in shock. She says "That camera does those little sculpture no justice" You can imagine how happy that made me (even if it was my mom, but knowing my mom is like knowing the most unbiased person , we call her the alpha male.) So please when peeking at the little sculptures do take note that they are much cuter in person.







****LISA LAMPONELLI****




Good grashious if you are easily offened please stay away. She was hilarious but oh so crude and rude.







****Adirondack Extreme****




It was a blast. Super hard but very very fun
