Oh, hi November! Kearney Park Faire this weekend!

Can All Hallows have come and gone? Yep. We had a fantastic time! I always love this fun local festival. The costumes, the kids, the music…

These parents were good sports and obviously understood that they are living props for their charming and adorable baby. Who is here, obviously WINNING at Halloween. If this picture is any indication, he is also winning at parents and at life. Be happy, little family. You are awesome.

 

There’s just something about this magical little fall festival.

 

I love to see all the familiar faces, love the kids and the air of excitement that pervades the fairgrounds all weekend. It is just so unique out of all the events that I do. We had a deluge of rain and thunder on Saturday, but folks were in very good spirits. The local coffee roaster who had set up on our row was happy to meet the needs of the wet and shivering crowd, as did The Kitchen Witch with her amazing and magical teas.

I am here to tell you that it is not possible to get too much of the Wicked Tinkers, they just get better and better. And yes, before you ask, that is a Tinker on the table. I’d make a joke about not looking up, but, well someone probably already made it.

So that was the end of October. It is hard to believe that it is November already. Where did the year go? Weren’t we just growing tomatoes and blueberries? I just sent out the first of the Autumn Earring club offerings.

Teahouse theme was “Russia”, and they got a gorgeous array of richly hued natural sapphires.

Fairy Tales theme was “The Firebird” and they got rubies, tanzanite, moonstone, carnelian and yellow garnets.

Autumn is my favorite time of year on the mountain. The oak, aspen and dogwoods are turning, their yellows and reds splashed against the evergreen sugar pine and cedar trees. Much to the delight of the cats, our daily average temperatures have dropped enough that we are using the wood stove every day. Team Woodstove is committed to outdoing last season’s synchronized napping record, and if the pre-season effort is anything to go by, I think they just might do it. I am also delighted by the woodstove and might have contributed to the synchronized napping effort once or twice…

    Halloween is hands-down our favorite holiday! We, too, love the little ones in their adorable costumes, and the bigger ones (who knows the age of that cat?) in their clever costumes. There is a stress-free magic in Halloween that we don’t see in any of those must-shop holidays.

    Besides, any event with the Wicked Tinkers has just got to be fun!

    Really love your new earrings! The design reminds me of some flowers we saw blooming in Colorado; don’t know the name but they had such grace.

    Wish I was close enough to come to the Christmas fair. I am in love with your club earrings for November. They are gorgeous. You just get better and better.
