Does anyone know where the summer went? It was just here, I blinked and now its gone!!! The past few months seem to have flown right on by! In some ways I’m sad to see them go, but Fall is my favorite time of year!!! I’m so excited for the weather to cool down, wearing sweaters and boots, snuggling under my favorite afghan, going to photo walks, and all the fall markets I have scheduled!
I do need to take a moment and say good bye to August though… its been a great month and I turned 30! So that deserves a little recap 🙂
Top row – Quilting Retreat at Sunset Retreat
Second row – my “fancy” polka dot manicure. A hoop that embraces my Doctor Who obsession. Hanging with my sister and niece. Birthday lunch with Faith and her mom. Some hypothetical shopping 🙂
Third Row – Birthday Reading and picnic. Just me! Had a sale. Finally finished my granny square afghan.
Fourth row – Another new hoop 🙂 New Strawberry Shortcake zippies. Had another reading picnic. Happy Mail!
Last row – Kittens!!! By far the best part of my month!
I also got a bunch of handmade and happy mail this month 🙂 I’m so in love with all of these goodies!!
What are your favorite handmade shops? Enjoy your holiday Monday!
