a fish tale ...

Away from the sepia and grey outside, my fish rug waits completion!
What a luxury of color ... perhaps a touch more red?

Did you ever have anyone give you the "fisheye"?
hehe - happy Wednesday!

Winters Deep

Hidden beneath thin ice .....

A damp chill hangs in the air...

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape - the loneliness of it - the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it - the whole story doesn't show."
- Andrew Wyeth

Shaker Village 2

One can only hope that the
very thought of wool in Kentucky
in August doesn't cause visitors to
faint straight away! Peg's summer colors
were so eye catching, it was easy to forget
the temperatures in the upper 90's!

Shaker Village

Posting again - gracious me, too long!

Rejuvenate - relax - restore.
Peg and I once again participated in the Craft Fair at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.
As always, the hottest August days of the year.
But with such surroundings, no worries.
Here is a peak at our small square of heaven for that weekend.

If you ever have the chance, you must go.
It changes lives!
