Fall Pictures & Trip To Lancaster

Hi everyone! I hope all of you are enjoying this beautiful weather. I guess this is suppose to be our Indian Summer, but I believe it is a little early. I just wanted to share few pictures.  The days have been so pretty I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures.

This picture below is the view from my front windows. Everyday I notice the mountains becoming more colorful. I wish I could get a closer picture from my window but my camera only zooms so far.

Monday DH had to go to Amish Country (Lancaster) to pick up a material order for a  job, so I made arrangements for my youngest to stay here with his Grandfather. Off we went, me with camera in hand.

Coming home there were many roadside stands, but when I seen this one I had to stop!!

Of course I brought pumpkins home…$1.00 a piece…I was very happy! Local around my house pumpkins are not cheap! We had a beautiful ride, there will be one more trip within the next week or two and I will go along again and see what I can find…I love going to Lancaster :) it is only one hour away but it is like going to another state….everything is so different. Below is one of the pumpkins that I bought.

Last Friday I went to a local prim shop and she was having a 30% off sale on all Fall items :) I bought this pumpkin hooked rug

I tried without the flash but it was to dark, with the flash it is to bright but you can see it better with the flash.

I bought the candle and candle mat at the prim shop and the candle ring I bought at a small store in Lancaster.

Top view without the candle ring, the candle holder I bought at the flea market and it is cast iron, I believe it is pretty old. So those are the things that I bought at the prim shop….love a sale!

I want to make note that my header picture is one of Kath’s crows..isn’t he a handsome crow? Thanks Kath, love him!!

That is it for now. I have been working on a few more of my projects. Hope to post them by the weekend, if not then hopefully the beginning of next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until the next time!


I want to make a correction on my last post, the before picture is not the same bread box. I apparently did not take a before picture and didn’t notice the difference when posting  (I bought a lot of  bread boxes to re-do :)  I have a lot of before pictures, I try to take the pictures as I buy the item, but sometimes I forget…
