Putting Summer away

    Well, fall is coming to Michigan....  A tree in the backyard is starting to turn...
                    A pumpkin field that we pass on the drive home from up north. 
       There are miles & miles of pumpkins near our place up north. I love to       take the back roads on the way home this time of year just to see all that orange.

           I haven't posted in more than a month, busy, busy. I started a new job, quit same job. Went on 2 trips, spent every weekend up north, getting things ready for deer hunting, well hubby & sons did... I hung new curtains, that I made, hung some new shelving, re-arranged furniture, had new cable TV installed + a new big screen.....( can't deer hunt & not have good TV for football )                                 
             Anyways,  as we get ready for fall, we pulled out some bushes, planted some mums, added a new bench & I am sadly putting away the geraniums
    So before I put it all away, I thought that I would show you something I did earlier this summer.
          I took these thrift store finds... 2 candlesticks 1.00 each & this bowl thingie, also $1.00
                          And made a little Garden art........

                    A 50 cent plate & then when I thought it lacked something, I added a thrift store flower pot that someone had embellished 30 cents  : )
                         And some Gorilla Glue, my new favorite tool
                     It looked pretty cute near the back door.......
                   And recently I bought this at Goodwill for $3.00,  an ugly lamp that will be something for the yard next summer.
                         Can't you just see it with a great finial on top, or a gazing ball.....
                                                     Next  summer...............Sigh...........
