Atlantic Beach

Last week we spent several days in Atlantic Beach, a place we had never been. It is on the coast up by Jacksonville.  

Every evening, while Mr.MW and Annie enjoyed the pool, I walked the beach...for miles.

I gathered shells and feathers to add to our collections. 

I observed the efforts of the day's beach goers. 

I added a few inches to a simple scarf I am knitting for the daughter of a friend.

I snapped a few photos and...

enjoyed the sunset.

It was a slow, quiet few days. The weather was perfect. 

The company...the best...and...

the hallway had polka dots!

Enjoy the day,

Pumpkin Tyme

It's not really fall around our home until Pumpkin Tyme makes his appearance. He's settled into the cornhusk wreath above the mantle and loves the view of the bird feeder in the backyard. 

Pumpkin Tyme was sewn by Angela Hillstrom from Of Cloth and Hand. He was inspired by an original painting by Lori Brechlin from Notforgotten Farm. Both of these talented ladies are among my favorite contemporary folk artists. I am so happy this sweet fellow lives here with us.

Oh...while I'm thinking of it, Pumpkin Tyme says it's voting time over at Martha Stewart's American Made Contest. He hopes you will vote for the lady who was inspired to paint him...Lori Brechlin.

Go vote...six, yes 6 times a day!

Have a great weekend!

Enjoy the day,
