Been awhile

Haven't been  posting at all really. I have been busy getting things straight in the house.  Condensing boxes to be put away of Christmas items.  I threw away a box full and need to go through more.
The other night was the most beautiful moon.  I still can't capture the moon like I would like to but here it is anyway.
Shining through the trees behind the garage.

I am leaving out this little tree.  Looking out the window is very foggy.

Before all the fog we took a ride to Colonial beach to look for drift wood and just get out.
Genevieve went with us and was very disappointed because she wanted to take off her shoes and play in the sand. 

She is smiling for the camera but it didn't last long as she just so thought she was going to be able to take her coat off and shoes.

This picture I took on the Pro setting so that is why it's lighter in color.

I took a ride to the  'At Home Store ' just to check out the sales.  I did find some beautifully made magnolia fall garland and a garland with cones and pretty leaves for 75 percent off.  I couldn't pass it up.  Regularly priced at $14.99
The golden wreath was half off in the Christmas isle.

Steve likes these oreo thin filled cookies.  He went to get one.  Not one had a filled center. Adalyn got to them first, ate the center and put them back.  She's a mess.

I have a few more posts for my Christmas blog I will be getting to.

til then - betsy

Maine house

Finally in Maine and at the end of September this year are these pretty flowers at front door drive to greet.
This is late September and the flowers and the garden are still producing.  

Entry Foyer they painted and did work on the stairs I believe she said.  

A lighting fixture she found.  I love it.  

I love this art piece she found.  

Lynn and Randy lowered their ceilings.  This tin bathroom wall treatment was once in one of their ceilings.
I think this is a very clever use for it.  I also like that picture hanging in the bath above it.

Lynn put this up on her wall herself.

A pretty wreath she made of her pinecones.  It's a huge wreath.  Beautiful!

A stained glass cross she made some time back hangs in kitchen window. I think when we change out our windows, we will put in roll out ones.  I don't like the tilt out very well, good for cleaning but somewhat awkward to handle with upper and lower windows.

we stayed in this room upstairs

this is an antique porcelain baby wash basin.  It has nursery rhyme characters on the inside.

Hanging on the wall is a neat way to house a precious book.  Frame with a door.
The book her husband found for her.
 Written by our Grandfather - Ethelbert Perry Sheldon.
"The Peruvian Tradgedy".  Published 1940
A drama written in blank verse. A form of verse using Iambic Pentameter.

A clip of the little stream that is stocked with trout running through their property.
Garden produced pumpkins, green beans, tomatoes, etc..
I saw about 15 quarts of beans that she put up and more were  canned when we left.  She made preserves of blueberry, blackberry, grape from her vines and she makes wine.  All types.
Maine may have a short growing season but the veggies love it and it produces plenty.  Apples are so delicious and juicy on the trees.  The trees everywhere are loaded with them.

She said her neighbor saw a black animal in the yard early one morning and thought from a distance to be their lab who is a big dog.  It wasn't, it was a bear.
