Okay, okay….I give! Bring on Fall. No, I have not completely decorated for it yet but I am working on it. Here's a sneak peak.
The weatherman said the summer weather is leaving and by the end of this weekend we will be struggling to maintain temperatures in the low 70’s. They are predicting an early show of fall foliage. My sweaters are still packed but I have started putting away my linen dresses and most of the beachy décor. (Okay, some of the beachy décor.) I do like pulling out clothes that have been stored away. It’s like saying hello to an old friend. I have to work hard at not overdressing and then being too warm. I tend to get a twinge of “oh, yeah, I missed that shirt (dress, sweater, whatever) and decide to wear it on a day that is still just a bit too warm for it.
As I decorate and pack away things for next year my excitement is rising for the upcoming season of fairs, bazaars, and festivals. I was contacted by the ladies at Vintage Thymes Monthly Market to write a post about their new adventure. I will write more about that later. This weekend I am headed to Mary Ellen and Sandy’s Vintage Home and Garden Marketplace! They were recently featured in Romantic Country Magazine as one of the top markets in the country. Mister and I took a trip to Foxboro this past spring to their market. You may remember seeing the blog post here.
The following weekend we are headed back up to Salisbury to see the lovely ladies at Coastal Windows & Exteriors. Again, they will be the sponsors for the Vintage Bazaar. I met some talented people there in June (here) and look forward to seeing some of them again.
All this is coming up in addition to apple picking, corn mazes, the Topsfield Fair, little local fairs, the Big E, and on and on it goes. I suppose that If one has to say good-bye to lazy days in the sun with sound of the surf reaching the shore that Autumn in New England is not such a bad trade off.
Now, off to the market! Are you coming?
