Autumn Decor at My Friend's House !

......Click to enlarge photos....

These photos were taken today at my friend's house and also of her cabin looking shed.

The above photos are of my friend, Mary's cabin shed decorated for autumn.

Below are a few photos of Mary's home with autumn displays throughout the house. Some of you may recognize a few of the primitive dolls she has bought from our wonderful prim doll artists !

Mary made the wax turkey and fixins in the graniteware pan. Her candles and other wax creations are awesome and have a wonderful scent !

Mary has a lovely and cozy home filled with the neatest antiques and collectibles !
We usually run the roads to different antique stores and I don't often get a chance to sit back and relax and visit her home since we live 45 minutes away !

Christmas is Just Around the Corner....

This gentleman will be listed tonight on ebay. He is my first Santa for the season.

He has a wool coat that reminds me of one I had when I was young ! Lots of handstitching went into the making of this Olde St. Nick and his outfit !

I love his olde wool shoulder bag !

If you get a chance, take a peek at my auction under the name of ~ meadowbrookcabinprimitives or type in tdipt in your ebay search browser .

Pittsburgh Heart Walk at Heinz Field ~ A Great Weekend to R*U*N*N ..O*F*T

This photo was taken Saturday evening as we were driving in Pittsburgh.. A great abstract photo , don't you think ?

My sister in the middle along with her friend on the left and daughter on the right as we were about to walk in the Heart Walk yesterday along the North Shore in Pittsburgh.

Warming up for the Heart Walk...

Lots of folks participated in this event. You couldn't have asked for a better day !

Great views of the city !

Walking along the river coming back..

This photo was taken in front of Heinz field, the Steeler stadium,as we were coming to the end of the three mile walk.

What a nice weekend ! Great weather, getting together with family and participating in the Heart Walk in my favorite big city, Pittsburgh !

A Little Autumn Glory and Geese

Down the road from where I live, is a lake. It makes for a nice view when out for a walk. This photo was taken this afternoon. We had three days of rain, cold, damp, and dreary weather so it was nice to get out today and enjoy the warmer weather and sunshine.

We really did need the rain, though, as we hardly had any rain all summer.

This is Mandy Jean, age 14, my personal trainer who likes taking me for a walk ! She also likes to run after rabbits since she is part beagle. :o) She is also part cocker spaniel. Give me a mixed breed dog anyday, before a pure bred one. Very intelligent little gal, so she is.

The bridge (or causeway) where Mandy is standing was built in 1936 by the W.P.A. The Works Progress Administration. The date and initials are carved in the cement.

Back to the sewing room...
