I Love Fall

I just love Fall and all the wonderful images associated with it. The corn, pumpkins, and turning leaves all remind us of harvest and the celebrations that follow.

As I mentioned before, one of my favorite activities in the morning is reading blogs. Fall brings lots of pictures and contests with it and lots of fun things to do.


Right now, the Knot Just Macrame Blog by Sherri Stokey is having a contest to win a beautiful Halloween bracelet. Check it out and maybe you can win.

Not only do I enjoy looking at images and other people's photos I enjoy taking photos. I guess that's my mom's fault as she was always taking photos and loved taking movies. We have movies from before I was born (over sixty years) and it is so much fun to watch them. I even have a black and white movie of Niagara Falls from my Mother and Father's Honeymoon.

Photos speak volumes and bring back memories. I have tons of photos everywhere. They are in boxes, in plastic tubs, on floppy disks, on CDs and on the computer. I often think that if the house burned I would get the dogs out and then go back after the photos. LOL

Here is a photo that I took from Sharilyn Millers Blog back in November of 2010. (Yes, I borrow them too) I took this photo with Sharilyn's camera as she asked me to help her document the class at Wire Masters.

Looking back at the photo, I realized that it was my friend, Kumi, and that was the first time I ever saw her. My mother-in-law, June, is in the red jacket and I had the seat beside her. Kumi sat behind us and really didn't talk much. In fact, Sharilyn labeled this photo as a student concentrating or something like that. Imagine how wonderful it would be if you had a photo of the first time you met all your friends and loved ones.

Happy Fall to one and all.

  1. Thank you for the mention, ma'am! I am enchanted with that horse in your top photo where it says metalwork - what a fantastic piece! Do you sell your work?

  2. Thank you, Sherri. That is a favorite of mine. In fact it is my first piece of metal art. I can't bring myself to sell my art yet but I will soon have to as I am running out of room.

    Actually, I am a customer of yours. My daughter is getting a bracelet that I bought from you for Christmas. It is purple with a dragon button.
    Love your blog.

  3. I love the fall colors too even though we don't have them here. I totally forgot about that photo you took! What a fun journey we've been since then! Love reading your blog!
