Country Living Show...

 Can you say COLD....It was 33 degrees as we waited in line to get in. My Friend Robin treats me for my birthday each year. I so look forward to going. This year we needed our scarves and gloves. As always the show is a delight for your eyes !
  Shivering in line...what some people will endure to see GREAT antiques and Wonderful displays.
  This was one of our favorites...The crows on the bike were so cute !
 Love the Pumpkin and Gourd stack that they do each year. We each found a few Treasures that had to go home with us.  If you get a chance...GO... it is a GREAT Show.

A Little Crazy....

 Been painting like a Crazy person.... What I could not reach with my 12 ft ladder , Hero was able to reach...SCARY up there. So much to do in so little time. Wanted the porch to have it's first coat of paint before the Country Living Show this coming weekend. So excited to be going .
 Christmas Open House is four weeks away..... Planning all the fun things to have done in the shop !  Stop by this weekend and say Hi.  It is so fun to see old Friends when they come to town.  1910 Public House is now open for Brunch on Saturday and Sunday...Yum.

We have Railing...

 Hero and Joe got the railing up ! It looks so good. Today the bottom posts should go on. It is so exciting to watch it evolve.

 The Cats have it.... Searching for my black cat collection... now where did I put it ? When you have a little place with no storage you tuck things where you can.  They are in hiding....

The Lookout....

  This is the view from the porch...looking across to City Hall. We are up there !
   Sunday the tin was put on...I have a roof ! A beautiful dark green one. Looking for some old wood to use to cover up the rafters.  Hoping that when we finish the porch it looks like it has always been there.

  Today the railings should be started . I climbed through the window...being brave...just had to see what it was like. The right window will become a door soon. I have lots of painting to do. The porch will be moss green and black like the shop front.    Lilburn Daze was on Saturday...we had a great turn out !  Our little Town was bustling. Love seeing it so busy !  Only 5 weeks until  Christmas Open House....Better get BUSY !!!!!!

Pumpkin Man....

 Lilburn Community Garden is bursting with Scare Crows.....
  Pumpkin Man is guarding my morning glories  ! I could not bare to rip them all out. Guess my Fall crop will have to wait a while.
   I just love his happy face...don't think he will scare away any crows though. They may like sitting on him !
  This one is Jimi and Nancy's . She is SO CRAZY !
 Come on by the Gardens and see all these great scare crows... The Community Garden is judging them tomorrow. Can not believe it is October already... Lilburn Daze Art Festival is only two weeks away. Put October 12th on your calendar and come join the FUN !
