Perusing the pumpkin patch

I really love Halloween. I have to admit I'm a little more into the cute than the creepy but a nice mix of both will do just fine. Sort of like these lumpy orange pumpkins and the moldy looking green ones. Don't you just love them? We didn't get any yet, can't bring myself to buy them until it's at least October.

Then there was some kite flying. In the world of a three-year-old this is beyond cool. c.

Goodbye summer, it's our last day together and I'm really sad to see you go.

Today is the September equinox and so now the balance will shift from day to night.

An uninvited guest (again)

My favorite little annoying friend the opportunistic Rhinovirus has arrived uninvited. One, two, three we all have it and so does anyone we've been with in the last few weeks. Who knows who gave who what but it's still warm out and warm weather colds are the worst.

I wonder if they would ever consider just putting some solids on those tissue boxes? I'm kind of tired of the flowers and abstract pastels. c.

Renegade Handmade Chicago

This weekend we went to the Renegade Craft Fair. What a delicious feast of wonderfully handmade objects. I seriously wanted to buy something from every single person there and I can assure you that I had a pretty intense inner dialogue going on between my will power and my spending power.

Luckily a compromise was reached and I picked up a few cards, one from Jill Bliss who was really lovely in person and one from Bubbles Binsburry. Really cute don't you think? Oh, and the stamps are from The Small Object. So fun. The necklace by Sofia Masri and I'm wishing now I'd bought at least one more.

Two prints, Red Bird Print is from Jaime Zollars and the pink biker, sadly, for some weird reason, we have no record of the shop.

There are two more Renegade Craft Fairs scheduled for this year. Holiday sales in Chicago & San Fran. I'll be at Chicago along with will power and a spending power who will no doubt pick up the same argument right where they left off!

Did you think we went m.i.a? Well we sort of did because we have been swamped with too much to do. Looks like things will slow down a bit now and we will have some stuff to share with you in the coming weeks.

I'm wondering how all of you are spending the last few days of summer?

Here are some of our days.
