A little bit of autumn in my back yard






Today was cold-ish and gloomy-ish, but overcast days make for nice photos.  Early in the day I stepped out the back door and took the photo of our sad (and no doubt mouse-infested) storage barn and the crackly old metal chairs surrounded by the falling golden leaves of whatever that big bush is.  I could do without the decrepit lawn mower that's also under the bush, but it does fit the color scheme.  There's a red lawn mower lurking just out-of-frame on the left, too.

Later in the afternoon, I picked Kaylee up from Parents' Day Out and brought her back here.  For once she'd actually taken a nap at school, so she was raring to go all afternoon.  Fred, a.k.a. Papa, showed up a while later and asked her if she wanted to go outside to see the leaves.  She was more concerned about having him put on his jacket than she was about putting her own on, but I finally got it on her.  They headed out the back door and I followed, at first in my bare feet and armed only with my phone for pictures, but that plan didn't work out too well.  I came back in for the camera (and some shoes!) so that I could zoom in on her, but my batteries and Kaylee's enthusiasm only lasted for these four shots.  As you can see by the last photo, she decided to leave in a hurry. 

Treasury Tuesday

 How about this lineup?  Yeah, I crack myself up sometimes.

I'm having a sale!


Time to jump on the bandwagon, or into the jewelry box, and tell you about the sale this weekend in my Etsy shop.  I decided to skip the Black Friday craziness, but I can't let Small Business Saturday and certainly not Cyber Monday go buy by without offering a nice discount to all of my friends, family, past customers and....well....anybody and everybody who's ever looked at this blog.  So take yourself over to jgrumbling handmade jewelry and take a look around, and when you find that perfect piece of jewelry for you or someone you love, add it to your shopping cart, then use the coupon code SATSUNMON20 to get 20% off your total purchase.  But hurry....the code is only good through Monday, November 26th, on all items currently in stock.
