Great Pumpkin Patch

Congress Street United Methodist Church always has this awesome pumpkin patch last half of October.  Great place to buy your pumpkins and support your community.  All the proceeds go to benefit the local food pantry, Trinity Mission (provides shelter for homeless) and YWCA (big supporters of domestic abuse).  Kids love this place and they always have treats!

Have a safe Halloween!

I Have Two New Daughter In Laws!

Been a busy two months!  Our eldest son Eric married in September and middle son Andy married in October.  Not like they could have split this up a bit for us or anything!  No let's just do it all at once.

Youngest son told us a week before this last wedding that he was engaged.  We told him, "Don't Even think you're getting married this year Mr."!  His wedding date will be the same as Andy & Em's in 2010.  So I told all three of them when it comes time for anniversary parties that they need to consolidate and just have one party, none of this 3 parties in 2 months with two on the same day.

So my junking and posting has been almost non-existent.  And with winter fast approaching, I guess I'll be limited to auctions and antique stores, but that's alright as I have many projects that need attention.  Looking for one of those turbo heaters to heat the garage.  Hard to paint when you're shaking from the cold, paint globs up, and it's just a mess!  Winter is not my favorite time of the year.

Here's our beautiful daughter in laws.

Awe, the way he's just beaming adoration upon her ~ love it

Andria's quite the artist and painted this mural for their wedding.
Both the ceremony and the reception were held at the Muse.

Eric & Andria

Oh, look she's already poking him - "Eat your Sushi!"

Live Long and Prosper!

Both weddings were so nice and totally unique to each couple

Andy & Emily

Outdoor wedding at Riehle Plaza

Mr. Murphy and Associates

Em was so totally giddy and happy


And this is Pete and Miss Lauren who will be wedded next year.

She already has him in training.  "Cough it up love, I need some cash!"

Vintage Spiritual Compacts ~

Little Nugget of the Word for when you’re on the go

Picked up this pretty little compact with a cross on the front.  Kept playing with it and thought what a shame not to use this.

That’s when I came up with “Spiritual Warfare on the Go” for when your out and about an need a quick spiritual fix, just grab your compact out of your purse and repeat after God.  Think the theme for this one will be on Righteousness – remembering you right standing with God.  Look for it on Etsy next month, too many weddings this month to finish any sooner.

 Ciao, Cruisers!

Feast of the Hunters Moon West Lafayette Indiana

If you live within 50 miles of central Indiana and you have not been to the Feast of the Hunters Moon you are so missing out on an authentic good time!  This is unlike any festival you've ever attended!  Home cooked food over open pits - Sorry No elephant ears here and other garbage as such.  Go to some townie commercial festival if that's what you seek.  Want homemade cornbread, pork and beans, fresh corn on the cob, homemade apple fritters, venison, and the list goes on....  endless ~ seriously!

This is a reenactment of the annual fall gathering of the French and Native Americans which took place at Fort Ouiatenon, a fur-trading outpost in the mid - 1700s.   It's held annually in early autumn on the banks of the Wabash River, four miles southwest of West Lafayette, Indiana.

Best Olive Green Day

"Honey, I have a surprise for you" he said as he walked through the door.
But I already found a cool treasure today!  A really, really cool book, Rufus and Rose by Horatio Alger Jr. from the Ragged Dick Series 1898. 

He tosses me this grubby old military bag.  Wow, it's kind of heavy.  What's in it?  So I open it up and it's this  World War 2  gas mask and yellow canister!!!

The hose is covered in fabric or is it just fabric?  The canister is huge compared to the filters on gas mask today.  Can't open the mask it's become some what tight from being stored and I'm afraid it may crack some of the fabric.
So he wins again!  His treasure beat my treasure.
But that's Ok, it was a great olive green day!
