The mornings have been so beautiful with the mist sitting low on the fields.
This is a picture of the field down the road from our house yesterday morning.  It used to be a thriving apple orchard with lots of employees.  Now we import apple juice. I just don't get it.

This is a picture I took last week.  A river runs through our town and in the mornings the mist rises up from it so thick you can't even tell that it's there.

I've STILL been trying to catch up on blog reading - so much eye candy out there!  A lot of wonderful creations coming to life - fall decorating - can't you just feel the creative vibe in the air?

Santa from the Past

I've made the switch over to winter now.  The last few nights I've been tracing & cutting santa bodies & clothes.  Hopefully I'll be sewing by the weekend.  I love it so much - I wish I could stay home all day and create!  Something about this time of year that makes you want to bake and cook and decorate.....OH!  Speaking of baking and cooking - I actually did some of that on Sunday.  I don't cook OR bake well, but my buddy Patti at Primitive at Heart and her family are always doing something creative with food.  She has a recipe page now and I tried her Jagerschnitzel Pork and Cinnamon Oatmeal cookies - both turned out wonderful and I felt like Martha for a day - thanks Patti!

Have a wonderful, creative week!

hi Lisa, I love Michigan pictures. My granddaughter is at Lake Superior now, and I'm hoping I might get to visit there.

Love your music, just came on. I'm working on some turkeys and after that some Christmas. I have one show...don't guess I am over-doing it. LOL Santa is cool.

Oh, I'm not a baker or a cook. I can do it, just don't prefer to. I think my hubby has spoiled me by cooking.
I agree with you Lisa, why can't we feed ourselves when we certainly have the means.
Yep, time to roll out the santas, elves and reindeer.

Hi Lisa~ I just love the pictures. Looks so peaceful and relaxing. Last years Santa is so cute. I cant wait to see what you make this year. That would be great if we could stay home and craft all day. Im glad everything turned out wonderful for you. Doesn't those cinnamon oatmeal cookies make your house smell so yummy. You are very welcome.

We are heading into Summer here with very little enthusiasm on my part. I won't miss the Winter fog here though as it sits on us 24 hours a day for days on end. Haven't got the Christmas spirit yet as it seems to come round quicker every year and I don't think I'm quite over last Christmas.

Good morning Lisa, Love those pictures. So peaceful. Love the Santa. I need to get busy making more ornaments. Sold all the ones I made at the craft show, now I don't have any of the new patterns for my own tree. That's usually the case each year. Have a great day.

And I so wish I could sew all the time too.
I love baking this time of year too.
Happy Fall Friend!
