Alittle bit of Summer, alittle bit of Fall!

There's no doubt about it summer has officially arrived! This will be the 3rd day that the temperature will reach above 90! I must admit I love it! I so enjoy a hot summer. Summer wouldn't be summer if we didn't have a heat wave, now would it?
As much as I love this heat I know by the time September rolls around I will be anxiously awaiting those cool fall days. That's why I love living in upstate NY. Just when I am done with one season another one is ready to come on in. For me the beginning of each season brings a sense of renewal. I like to think that each season has it's own "personality " just like we all do. Summer is happy and easy going, fall is warm and welcoming, winter is comforting, yet can be a little intense, and spring is fresh and exciting. It's silly but that's how I view the seasons here in the Northeast.

This past weekend I was in the full summer swing! We headed up to my moms and spent the weekend playing in the river, barbecuing, sitting out by the camp fire and just being with family . It doesn't get any more summer then that!

After a fun weekend it was time to get back working on things for my show in the fall. This time of year it's great to have my craft room in the basement. It's nice and cool down there. Perfect for working! I was able to finish up a few of my Jolly Olde Fall Pumpkin Guys and also made more tarts.
So far the tarts have been coming out pretty well.  They smell great! I hope they do well for me at the show. The best thing about making the tarts is that you can make a lot in a short amount of time! I can't say that about any of my other items I make!

Tonight I hope to work on another Mr. Pumpkin. This one will be a bit different then any of my others. If it all goes well I'll post some pictures of him.
I hope you all stay cool!
Until next time!

I agree with you on the personality's of the seasons. Sounds like you are having a wonderful summer so far!

Your hand mades are adorable! I'm sure you'll do well in your craft show.
