pumpkin display outside iibraryThis is the lovely display outside our little library.  It’s the first time there’s been anything like it, and I was delighted to see it.

The gourds, pumpkins, bales of straw, and corn stalks are traditional Hallowe’en (and Autumn) decorations all over the States.

When I first walked by there were two tiny children tottering over to sit on the bottom bales and have their piccie taken by their parents.

Of course, they had their adorable costumes on. (Thinking about it, all the costumes I saw were purchased.)

I passed by, did my marketing, and returned to take a picture.

Frequent Lovely Readers may have noticed I don’t pay much attention to milestone moments, but this one seemed appropriate.post-milestone-500-2x

I started CurlsnSkirls after a great deal of indecision. After practicing with Apple’s infant (now gone) web program, I  finally discovered sewing blogs elsewhere (on WordPress) and it seemed worth a try.

Would anyone bother to read it? Could I sustain any sort of sewing, let alone writing about it? And would I e-e-ever become proficient in this wonky WordPress world?

Now, with many blog posts read, a great deal of knowledge gained therefrom, a bit of sewing done, and wonderful “friends” made around the globe, I’m very glad I did.

Heartfelt thanks to you all.
You’ll never know how much your posts encourage and enlighten.
Mwah ~  Mwah ~ Mwah!
😘  😘  😘
Consider yourselves hugged!

      Thank you so much! It’s still there. I saw it tonight as I passed by on my way to vote. Then coming back I saw a shop absolutely a-blaze with all their Christmas trees, lights, and decorations. It’s too early, folks ~ puh-lease!
