Too good not to share...


A little something to bring a smile to your face on this gloomy Thursday morning. I love Ross' willingness to get back in the saddle!
PS: Be sure and watch this with your speakers on, the music is perfect! Well it use to be perfect then they changed it!! What's up with that? Google or find... "Saddle up ride your pony, get on your horse and ride!"

Autumn Already...

It doesn't seem quite possible that it's fall already! I have no idea where our summer went, and I'm somewhat reluctant to move on with the seasons just yet. We had a very mild summer and being a California girl I like the bright sunshine and warm, breezy days... but after months of waiting for them to arrive, I guess it wasn't meant to be this year. Sigh...

In other news, I had an amazing time at Tinsel and Treasures earlier this month. Iva and Colleen hosted a great show and I couldn't have been happier to have been a part of it again this year! Unfortunately I don't have pictures to share. I had planned on really loading up on photos so that even when I don't have time for blogging, I might still have something to share with you all. On the drive up Nancy and I stopped at St Patrick's Cemetery outside of Arroyo Grande....

It's an old, abandoned cemetery we saw off the highway due to a few really stunning religious crosses, headstones, and markers. Some of the statuary stands at least 12 feet tall! To our surprise, we were able to find our way onto the dilapidated grounds... it was beautiful, but hauntingly so. It was a bit unsettling reading headstones from so long ago, and trying to imagine who these people were that could afford such elaborate religious pieces way back when. As I tried to snap one last photo of a rusty old rosary hanging on a headstone, my camera suddenly froze and I have to say it kind of scared me. The whole thing just stopped working at all! That was my cue for us to hightail it out of there, and let these people rest in peace. So, forgive me for not having more to show from our trip. You can see and read more about our ventures if you're interested on Nancy's blog here, here, and here.

That's all I've got for this morning. I do want to say thanks to those of you who continue to stop by this little blog of mine. I have a few kits left over from Tinsel and Treasures for those of you interested. You can find them here.

Happy Saturday everyone!
