Back from a trip to Florida!

My brother Al and I flew to Orlando Florida last Sunday rented a car at the airport, and then drove to High Springs Florida. The next day we rented a 17' Budget truck, loaded it with all of his furniture and two days later headed back to Minnesota. It took us 2 1/2 days to get home. We had some nice weather and then a lot of rainy weather. Beautiful scenery as you can see from this picture most of the country was a it's full fall color peak. We were VERY happy to be home safe with no problems, it went good.
Now back to work this week!

This jewel tone hat will be off to it's new home!

Thanks Chandra (my niece) for being such a cute model in this hat, she's a doll! I wish I looked this cute in hats! This recycled wool sweater hat is off to it's new home to keep some lucky lady warm. There are two more hats in my Etsy shop if you are interested, they're really cozy!
I started making a bunch of different Christmas/Winter items yesterday. The weather sure has put me in the mood. Most of the snow that we got is melted and the sun is shining brightly today so that's a pick me up. Now off to work!!!!

What happened to Fall???!!!!!

This is the wintery scene out my back window this morning! I have NO idea what happened to Fall! The leaves just started turning colorful and then it started snowing. As you can see most of the leaves are still green on the trees. VERY strange weather! I was SO hoping we would have Indian Summer yet but now I'm not sure. The forecast for the week only shows temps in the low 40's for highs. This is gonna be a long winter!
My parents have a summer place here in MN and it usually closes the 15th of October but this year with the freezing temps they shut the water off last week so they are parked in our yard while they finish packing up and then head south for the winter. Lucky them going to warmer places! This is the first time it's snowed on them here in the Fall. It's nice having them right outside close to visit. I miss them terribly when they go south.
This is putting me in the mood thought to make winter/Christmas things. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I listed some cozy recycled wool hats and a pair of mittens in my Etsy shop yesterday in honor of the weather, check them out! Have a wonderful Monday!
