even though it was mostly cloudy and even spritzed a few times the foliage as usual was beautiful…

these friendly looking folk caught my eye…

My creation

they were in front of the museum which I had never been in …  the exhibits included old milk wagons, baby carriages, wash tubs, and a man making caned seats…

My creation

 

there’s more to the sheep and wool festival than livestock and yarn…there’s a lot of other things to be looked at, admired and coveted..  for years I denied myself the small, orange, felted pumpkins… and then 2 years ago I got one… and then last year another one… and this year a third one….

but they’re not the only thing I had my eye on… there were these baskets too… my daughter had one, friends had them, almost every third person walking around Rhinebeck had them… they were great to put stashes of wool in, or food, or a small animal even… so this year my first stop… after coffee… was a basket…

here’s my treasures from 2014 Rhinebeck.. 🙂

the sky on the way home at 4:30 was just as beautiful as the morning sky was…

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
