The Three Norns, Dec. 8 in Chatham

norns sign 11:13

Tomorrow, this sign will hang in a store window at 12 Main Street in Chatham, NY. My two daughters and I will be selling our handmade goods, from 11 am to 4 pm. I have been able to work slowly on some small items for the sale.

Below are some more tiny worlds, small living terrariums, which will be for sale. I also will show some woolen goods, ornaments, and some jewelry. Stop by if you are in Chatham!

Porch Possum

A possum decided to explore the cat’s den on the front porch.

Meanwhile, I’ve put together two more terrariums. Photos to follow if energy allows!

Minnie is at rest.

For those of you who knew the cat Minnie (Mini), she died this morning. Thank you to those who helped me take her to the vet over the past few weeks. She will be missed.

Life in the slow lane

Scenes from this small-town life.

Circus Train

This evening the Barnum and Bailey circus train rolled slowly through town.

Over the weekend,

Alpaca

the alpaca grazed in autumn pastures, while

The Kline Kill, with K. at play

And this afternoon,

The barn, with fresh paint.

the painting of the barn was completed.

Life is good.

Woodland Critters

The critters below were watching me warily from the undergrowth as I walked the paths near John’s Pond.

One can never be too careful when walking in the woods.

Fireworks!

With friends we went to the fireworks at our local fairgrounds. This is a photo taken by Sharon Lips.
