Endless Mountain Fiber Fest 2016

On my way up to Maine last month, I made a quick stop at the "Endless Mountain Fiber Fest".
I was greeted at the very first barn by this cute guy.
There were so many talented, creative women there, showing off their wares.




So much fiber!


Loved all the sweet critters.



Picked up a few supplies, but most of all gathered some much needed inspiration.

Dust and Stuff

Last week I purchased a new phone.
I'd read that the Samsung Galaxy S7 had the best camera, so that's what I chose.
It does take fabulous photos and I'm happy with it except for the frustration of transferring those photos to my Mac. Anyway, here goes………
Somehow, I got it to work and I was so excited that I posted these without editing them.
These were taken yesterday near Grove City, PA.
My husband and I were visiting some antique shops, which is something we rarely do these days.
We don't have space for more junk, so a few pics will do.
It was fun just to look and spend the afternoon together.
It's funny to me how some of the shops look as if nothing has changed from one year to the next.
Even the dust stays the same.

I plan to be back here more often in the future.
Hope you'll join me!

A Visit From Mr. Bear and Some Flea Market finds

Mr. Bear was right outside my kitchen door a few days ago.
It's been a long time since I saw him last and I was a little startled to see him so close to the house.
 Not very good photos. By the time I found my camera he was almost out of sight.
I must say that it was nice to see him again, although I wouldn't want him to visit often.

Braved the heat on Sunday and went to the Flea Market with my man.
After all, it was Father's Day, so I thought I would do my best to get through it.
 Picked up a few pieces of pottery while I was there. A sweet shaker for my kelp granules.
 The yellow bowl is my favorite. I don't see yellow pots very often.
 Couldn't pass up this pretty brass trinket box either.

Complain Less Breathe More

Been keeping to myself mostly with this goal in mind.
Appreciating simple things.
Growing tea.

Everything Herbs
 A couple of the little "Mud Men" who live among the herbs.
A basket inspired by the camomile that I just planted.
 The wool was dyed and hand spun by me.

A Small Bunch Of Lavender

Not much energy to keep up with my gardening this year, but the lavender is doing well despite the neglect. 
It grows right next to my porch and I had to gather a bunch for drying.
Such a soft, beautiful fragrance.
 Another type of lavender growing in a pot on the porch.
 Feels like summer.
