Last few nice days

Been busy with work and art show, I didn’t do much to make new things or do something for the last couples of weeks.

Well, it is time to get my “BUTT” in gear and move …..

So this morning, I took my camera and Mira for a walk in the woods in front of my house.

Pretty soon the trees will looses all their leaves and their gorgeous colors. The rain will come and after the snow *SIGH*(I can live without that …LOL )…

So, here is a few last nice pictures from fall…and by the way I felt so good ,I went shopping for new Antique Silver beads( got some ideas ).
