More crafting!

Oh and of course there's more crafting going on! What to do with a table full of pumpkins and a plain wreath?
We're still working on the pumpkins, but the wreath turned out beautiful!
 I've been working on this crocheted blanket for..well let's just say many nights! It's done just in time for all the chilly nights ahead this week.

Old McDonald had a farm & We had an Anniversary!

Old McDonald had a farm...that became The Great Pumpkin Patch in Arthur, IL.
We enjoyed a whole day of pumpkins, gourds, squash, the corn maze, little gardens, lunch, pictures, the three little pigs, a not so haunted house, beautiful mums, a cozy gift shop & so much more!

This was definitely a wonderful way for Matt & I to celebrate our 15th Anniversary together all weekend long!

Scarecrow Festival & Homecoming

Another fun filled weekend! We started Saturday with the Scarecrow Festival in Shelbyville, IL. The streets were lined with vendors, artists, live music and more. We picked up some Pure Natural Illinois Honey (it's great in hot tea!), the guys loved the jerky booth. After picking up some gater, kangaroo & elk jerky we walked some more, right into my favorite fabric store!

...and after an hour of archery at Kidds Archery uptown, we were off to let the guys get ready for the Homecoming Dance and pictures at the Train Station in Mattoon, IL.
