First order of the day was coffee. A bit of tongue-in-cheek humor, considering the aftermath
We went to two craft fairs in New Jersey, after a quick trip to a Good Will. Nothing to be found at the GW, I still am in awe at the things bloggers find, I guess I haven't hit the right ones.
I have been going to Lambert's Castle for over 20 years. A business man in the late 1800's built this castle as his residence. No photos allowed inside.
It was a typical November day in the New York/New Jersey region. Grayer than gray
The castle sits high up on a mountain in Paterson, NJ.
We then went to the town of HoHoKus, for a fair held at The Hermitage. It was rather late and getting dark. This is the original "Hermitage". It is no longer used for the craft fair, but right across the way.
This is the entrance to the John Rosenkrantz house where the fair is held. Some holiday items for sale outside. And no photos allowed inside as well.
I love this wagon and it could be decorated for all four seasons. I didn't buy it, though. I only picked up a dip mix and two soup mixes. Not feeling it this year, and although a few items caught my eye, the price tag told my head to say no. And, for once, I listened.
I planted some spring bulbs. This tool makes it so easy, I love it. I brought it with me to the cemetery and planted some there, too.
Daffodils and anemone. I hope to get at least one bouquet next spring.
Just look at these "mushrooms" that popped up in my mulched bed! Ugh!! I don't want to touch them, they look so poisonous.
Ewwwww. That's all I can say. And I love mushrooms, too. These just look so nasty.
I bought this for the door at Christmas Tree Shop several years ago. I needed a break from a wreath, scarecrow, basket, etc. It will stay up for the week.
Now I am doing menu planning, writing to-do lists, shopping lists, getting the dishes out for next Thursday's dinner, and so on.
Last but not least, we had a visit today from the President. His helicopter landed right on our little storm ravaged island, on Miller Field. You can read the nice article and see photos here.
I'll be back in a couple.
