 After a long hot, dry and very humid summer I woke this morning to a bit of a nip in the air. It was just a bit but I could feel it...maybe it is just wishful thinking but I can feel Fall in the air. I also woke up to a beautiful sunrise.
 Last evening Tim and I had a meeting with Jake and Dean, the owners of Armstrong Valley Winery and Vineyard. We were meeting to go over plans for the upcoming Fall Festival which will be on September 29 & 30. We will be there along with over 25 other vendors/crafters. We hope to see you there...make sure to stop by our booth and say hi. 
We have been busy crafting and creating new goodies. I am enjoying finding treasures to repurpose and adding them to our Shop. The only thing is that they hardly ever make it to the Shop. I post pictures of the new creations on our Facebook page and next thing you know they are sold! Not complaining, though :)

A fun craft...snowflakes made with clothes pins

Tim has been busy in the woodshop creating wonderful things for our customers, like this cubby box.

So you can see we have been a bit busy here at the Brickhouse.

Good Morning! I laughed when I saw your sunrise photo- I live in Williamstown and the sunrise was so beautiful that I took a picture too, although yours is much better since I have trees in the way :)

Hi Alexandria, WILLIAMSTOWN! well we are ALMOST neighbors :) Sorry you didn't get to enjoy the sunset because of the trees...if you want to see more pictures, I posted more on our Facebook page for the Brickhouse Craft Shop. Nice to "meet" you.

Great new goodies for your shop! Love the doorknobs. What a gorgeous sunrise. We are getting ready for four shows and I was so tired that I missed it! Enjoy, Dawn
