Fall Crow Fall Color!

We have been getting the most gorgeous weather!!! And the leaves are just starting to turn. I heard on our local news the other day that the fall foliage in our area will be spectacular this year because of the hot dry summer we had and a week earlier too!

First off in business. I just wanted my blogging friends to know that I have one of my crow make do's on ebaY  and he will be ending tomorrow night!!! So get your bids in! I think I am coming to a close on creating my Halloween items. Time to get busy on Christmas....very soon!

Here is my Primitive Crow Make Do

Today my daughter, decided to take a break from her Chiropractic studies to venture on a hike with me to Black Hawk State Park! I love that this beautiful park, which is just 5 minutes away from my home. It has some of the most beautiful tallest oak trees in our town. 

These are just a few of the trees that are showing color. The best is yet to come in the coming weeks.

There were many of these bat houses on the trees.

I bet some kind of little furry critter has spent a night in this log. Looks like a nice place to bed down for the night.

My daughter checking out the dry creek bed. Hardly any water to speak of in all the creeks.

My daughter with one of her many humorous faces! We had fun! I also got to see my very first Pileated Woodpecker! I didn't get a picture of him as I was too slow with changing the lens on my camera! Darn! But at least I can now say that I have seen one! And we also saw one deer running through the woods. He was to fast to get a shot of.  

There was a part of the park where they had planted a whole area of native wildflowers. This Goldenrod was so bright!

And as you walked through the paths of the wildflowers, grasshoppers were jumping left and right. I used to love to catch these guys when I was a kid.

These are mums that grew all summer in my garden. They are my favorite color of all the mums that I have.

And my hydrangea blossoms have changed colors right along with the trees! Amazing!

In other news....I have a few new primitive photo pendants available in my Red Oak Images Etsy shop!

My friend Judith in Vermont has started carrying a few of my primitive photo pendants in her primitive shop! I'm so excited! I've been a busy bee lately!

Well that's all my news for this Saturday! Have a wonderful evening!

Primitive Harvest Pumpkin Gathering

After going through all my Fall Halloween decorations, I've decided I have way to many pumpkins and think I should sell some of them. So I listed a small gathering of pumpkins on ebay which I haven't done in about 6 months. 

If you would like to check them out here is the link-->EBAY I plan to get a few other things listed on there too in the coming days and weeks.

It has sure been feeling like fall around here, acorns and some leaves are beginning to fall. And I always see more ladybugs in my garden. I captured a shot of this one the other day with my iphone and my olloclip macro attachment. Isn't it beautiful! It almost looks like it has been antiqued! LOL Things looks so much different when you see them up close!

About a half hour ago I saw this hawk fly up into one of our trees in our front yard! I had the perfect view from my upstairs bedroom window! I believe this is a red-tailed hawk.

Just Gorgeous don't ya think!!!

This will be a short post as I need to finish up several orders! Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

Ghostly Goings On

Finished up these quick and easy Ghostly Make Do's today. They are currently listed in my Rock River Stitches etsy shop! Orders are coming in fast now for both Halloween and Christmas items. Hope I can keep up. And the same for my photo pendants shop on etsy! 

Hope I didn't bite off more then I can chew with opening a second etsy shop back in May. I am having fun though! Don't forget about my 20% off sale in my Red Oak Images Shop! Sale ends midnight Sunday. Just type in LABORDAYSALE at the check out.

I just added these new Christmas Primitive Note cards to my Red Oak Images Shop. They are on sale too along with everything else!

Perfect gift for that primitive friend! 

Then yesterday while I was taking a little tea break out on my deck I captured this adorable shot of this little chipmunk! We have a gazillion of these little critters around our home. 

Isn't he a cutey! I believe he is a youngster. I think there is a big family of them under our deck. 

Well my blogging friends, time to get back to work! Have a wonderful weekend!
