Sewing box

 

My daughter’s birthday was a couple of months ago. Because the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree, she is a “maker,” like her Mom, so I decided to decorate a box in which she can keep all those little things. I am unable to use my sewing machine now, so I’ve been finding projects I can do while resting.

The plain box below was for sale for $14.95.

I used paint and objects I found around the house.

Barnstorming!

Last night we attended a nearby annual event, Barnstorm, which included live music, dancing, food, a pumpkin-carving contest, and conversation.

Women in the window! There were windows on all four sides of the second floor of this marvelous old barn.

The interior of the second floor was home to the festivities. The small loft above was used decoratively.

The stage, ready for a variety of musical acts.

Three women, three paper lanterns ~ waiting for the music to begin.

A musical beginning. The show was opened with a lively guitar and ukulele number.

Goodnight, Barnstorm! We left early and missed many musical acts, dancing, and the pumpkin judging. Several people brought tents, which were pitched outside the barn for those wanting to sleep over. I opted for my cozy bed at home.

Seasonal fun!

They laughed, while I cried.

Mighty powerful onions!
