Friday's Flowers At Anchor Cottage

That time of year is here.

There is a nip in the morning air as the Sunflowers follow the sun from east to west moving lower in the sky.

Maybe a fire in the fireplace, a crisp apple and a bite of toffee weather.

For me, it is a swim in Lake Michigan and a hooded sweatshirt, waiting to pull over my head when I get out!

Harvest colors, rich and lush, bring the Indian Summer onto our tables. With Apples and Pears, Bitter Sweet and Rose Hips, the colors of an Autumn sunset.

Have a fun and sunny weekend!

Monday's Musings

My little Jeep Liberty turned 100,000 miles Saturday. She is a 2002 model, although, I got her September of 2001. She has ran like a champ.

This is Steve's Rose Of Sharon blooming like a mad man!

Love my new studio. Painted my oars red, white and blue Sunday.

Camp Randy is coming along.

We took everything out and covered all the surfaces with a coat of Bin.

Then we painted two coats of Sherwin Williams Dover White.

Can't wait to start decorating. Look how cute the little bathroom is.

I love my garage. It holds a ton of projects to be done, all behind closed doors!

How cute are these shutters for either side of the kitchen window at Hoot's Holler?

This is one project that is not going back into the garage, I hope.

I love projects and I think I met my match when I married my husband because he's good at them! LOL

Have a nice evening.

Friday's Fragments

I woke up early and thought I would take a picture of my patio garden before it rained.

This time of year we have Black Eyed Susans and Cone Flowers galore.

 Marigolds and Petunias along the edge of the patio.

Oh oh, here comes the rain.

I tried to photograph the actual wall of rain that blew in.

Time to great dressed for work.

What accessory  to wear today? The Flamingo, Octopus or Sailboat necklace?

The bedroom arrangement is coming along. I like the mix of grandeur and antiques.

Suttons Bay Art Festival is Saturday and Sunday. Come on down and browse around.

Have a great weekend.
