~~Trying something new~~

I finally got up enough courage to do something that I have been wanting to do for a long it very first painting. It was suppose to be a picture of Queen Anne's Lace but I do think it looks more like dandelions. :) I think I need to practice some more and maybe even take some art lessons...I will admit though that I did have fun painting this picture.

 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 :)

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.
