Mother Nature has opened her box of crayons in Michigan ~

"And all at once summer collapsed into fall"

Mother Nature has opened her box of crayons and used the most amazing colors!
I absolutely adore fall colors every year!

It makes me get outside more and snap a few photos. I love being outside, but I tend to
hibernate when it gets colder. Just like a bear...

I bought one mum this year and I love the color of it. I tend to go for pinks and purples.
However, I do throw in a orange or yellow every few years. 

If a year was tucked inside of a clock,then Autumn would be the magic hour".

These trees are all in our front yard and require a lot of cleanup, but aren't they pretty?

My Rosemary plant is still looking great! I can never get enough Rosemary.
I love the intoxicating smell.

"The heart of Autumn must have broken here, and poured it's
treasure upon the leaves".

I did say that I LOVE fall colors, but I will put a disclaimer right here. I don't like the clean up near
as much. I'm getting too old for all this work. lol  Truthfully, if we don't get an Indian Summer, it will
probably stay like this until next Spring. 

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers"
Do you have fall color where you live? I would love to hear about it.
We complain a lot because of the highest car insurance rates in the nation ,but when
you look at all this color, it almost makes up for it, right? :)

Happy Tuesday and may you be blessed!

A Forest of Trees!

HELP! I'm living in a forest and I can't get out!!

Hubby has started making wood turned trees and they are absolutely beautiful! I have sold several
for Christmas gifts so I thought I would share them with you in case anyone is interested.

Each one is unique and they are also different sizes. I didn't have time to really stage them so I just took
a few photos. 

He amazes me. He has worked as a machinist with metal for over 40 years and this came
natural to him. His brother-in-law gave him a lathe and he loves playing around with it. One day I
said "you should try and make a tree" and the rest is history. He loves turning wood and that
is a 'good thing' as Martha says.

Has the GM strike hit your household? It just hit ours. His factory supplies parts for GM and this is
his first week of layoff. ugh. I sure hope they get this strike settled soon. In the meantime, he will
keep making trees. It keeps him busy and out of my hair. Just kidding!

Trees range from $20-$45 depending on size, base etc.

Give me a hollar if you think you might want one. My email link is on the left side of my page.
Happy Fall everyone!!
