Oh September Days!



Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year and today Sloan and I went once again back to the OKC zoo. Next year I will have to get a year pass. He loved feeding the birds nectar. He said he would love to work at the zoo and feed all the animals but would not want to stay once it got dark.

It was perfect weather today and we had a wonderful time.



I have slowly been pulling out things to put out in the gathering room. It's nice to have a place to put things out.









I also hung the House Blessings rug that was designed by LJ Fibers.




It's nice to see a setting sun you know another day is just about done. Tomorrow is suppose to bring temps into the 60's and rain. Oh to turn off the AC and enjoy open windows once again.



Pati Jane and I went last weekend to Warsaw, MO to the Truman Lake Rug show and it was spectacular. Patty and the girls from Saltbox Primitive Woolens put on one outstanding show and the vendors were awesome. I know it will be on the list to do again next year!
Here are a few of the rugs that were on display.





Happy Trails.....Ginger

Yep... the zoo is very scary at night when it's dark... :-) Your gathering room looks fabulous! It's as if it were always a part of your home! Enjoy the cooler weather and some rain!

J'aime beaucoup la photo de l'enfant.
Vous avez une très belle pièce pour y mettre vos beaux ouvrages.
Les pièces de l'exposition sont magnifiques.
Bises à vous deux et bonne soirée

Hi Ginger.... Love the picture of Sloan, feeding the birds... Your gathering room is coming along beautiful. I love the way your decorating it.... How great it is to be able to display your art work... I love going to rug shows also...
We are supposed to have cool weather here in Pennsylvania too, which is fine with me, bring on the 60° temperature, I just love it!

Wow, I bet that was fun.
I wish we had something like that in NC. I have not heard of any shows like that here.
