Fruits of an Autumn Weekend ~

Saturday we headed to Nesting on Main's block party. They had live music under the tent and even though it was pouring rain it didn't dampen anyone's spirits
As I'm sure I have mentioned before I love this shop! It's packed with all kinds of fabulous trinkets and treasures, all of which I absolutely NEED ~ lol!

Look how they packaged my tiny purchase ~ these are my kind of peeps!

This is what was inside; little round enamel letters. I thought I'd put one on each of the doors in the corridor (upsatairs hallway,) just for fun (oops I forgot to get an L - guess I'll have to go back.) More black, I know, I'm not sure what's getting into me...maybe my kids are rubbing off on me

Here's a little clip of their shop featured on local NECN

Since we were so close we stopped by The Wilson Farm for some delicious treats; apple cider doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar were a must

The weekend ended with a hysterical covert mission, Operation Hydrangea. Under the light of a near full moon my partner in crime (who shall remain nameless to protect her innocence,) did a little clipping of our favorite hydrangea tree in town. Now before you get all crazy on me because someone stripped yours bare, it wasn't us ~ honest. We go to the same tree every year, and you don't live there. We like to think of it as maintenance, community service, simply pruning it so it will thrive and be bountiful for future generations...after all we did bring it back to life when it was so very sad many years ago

The fruits of our heist...a bumper crop ;)

The store looks amazing!

I have to confess- I have been a part of that kind of community service- Rosehip!

Hi Heidi!

I'm visiting from your friend's blog over at Pink Roses. Oh no, another great blog discovery! I will definately be back here to visit. That store looks fantasitc!!
Oh, yes, I love hydrangeas too. There is one huge bush in my neighborhood too, and the house is empty and for sale. I don't know anything about any missing hydrangeas either. lol!

I think someone is snipping a few lovely, drapey, spidery, dead birch branches from the big tree down the road. They would make nice branches for an arrangement, but I don't know anyone who would prune them....

Apple cider doughnuts with cinnamon, oh my, that sounds heavenly.
