Seize the opportunities.

Have no regrets.

My cheeseburger is waiting,
along with a Pina Colada....or two.

Pass the sunscreen.

I love beads!
Can't resist adding a little zest
to punch needle ornaments!
Traditional red snowflake.

 Kelley Green Punch Needle Beaded Ornament

The snowflakes were a little tricky.
Green & purple together; a little funky!

I love the natural soft tones on this one.

Merry Holidays!
Did I really just say that?

Disguised to protect their identity...

It's going to be a special day today....
A day filled with surprises...

this couple is travelling to their new home today

 As well as this little guy....
but just in case someone is wise enough to peek here,

We'll just add a little filter or two....
So you get the idea.....
I LOVE surprises,
especially when I'm giving them.


Our amazing Autumn vacation in Upstate NY & VT

Just setting up
This is our campsite Mascott named Hewey Lewey.

He was a loner, and stood apart from the others.

He would be at our door in the morning,

and frequently visited.
 I couldn't resist getting closer to these ducks.
They spent more time with their heads underwater,

than above water.

This went on for quite a while.

Our first night dropped into the 30's

and we woke up to steam on the water.

It was quite lovely.
Day 2 - Sunset

We were preparing to sit outside for our last dinner.

Quite suddenly, the trees lit up as the sun set.

It didn't last very long.

and this gorgeous full moon.
and from our site we could this view between the trees.
Our campsite is just behind this statue

I loved the color of the  mountains,

 as well as the sky.

As we were walking, a couple monarchs caught my eye.
 We packed a lunch, 
and headed for a drive around Lake George.

We decided it was a great spot to eat our lunch.
The contrast of the mountains to the foliage was striking.

 As well as this red covered bridge.

 Quechee Gorge.

 Stunning views from the top,
and stunning views from the bottom.
We hiked from the bottom of the gorge
to check out the dam.
I had to stop and take a photo of this chapel,
along side of a gravesite, 
with a sign that read: 

Love this!

Sadly, it was our last day.
A great way to end our vacation in the fall.

Thanks for visiting!
