A New Project~Victorian Button Keep Dolls

I am making a series of Victorian ladies. They slip over a mason jar you can fill with buttons and their bodies will keep your pins and needles. Pictured are dolls that I have finished, more pictures will be added as I progress.

The last flowers of summer!

Cooler nights mean that before too long we will be seeing the maple trees turning color and the tourists will be seen on all the back country roads in our small town and throughout Vermont. School has started this week for most, the school bus goes by my house full of kids excited to get back home after a long day at school around three o'clock. I hear them playing outside not ten minutes after the bus arrives in the neighborhood which is such a pleasant sound. I live in a rural neighborhood where the houses are about a quarter of a mile apart from each other, some are clustered a little closer but since we are in a valley, the sounds echo throughout the area.  We can hear the baseball games in the village that is about a mile away. The fair starts tonight so we will be hearing fireworks coming from the town of Essex which is about 12 miles away, I tell you we feel like we are in fish bowl, the sounds around us seem to settle in our yard.  My most pleasant of all night sounds from distant towns is the night train which runs the length of the western part of the state from south to north. It is a lonely almost sad sound to hear the distant rumbling of the tracks and a few short whistles. I hope you all are enjoying the changing of the seasons as much as I am.

Miss Lily is 1 year old!

My Great Grand Daughter Lily celebrated her 1st birthday this past week so I thought you would enjoy a few pictures of her in her birthday tutu. My son Sean brought her in the garden and captured a special moment. Check out the dirt and tomato cheeks!
