Lots of action on the deck yesterday morning, Nov. 6. First the turkeys were eyeing the bird feeder, then a huge Hawk made it's way to the railing, THEN incredibly, a Squirrel tried to chase the hawk away!!! Hawk went for him when he went back down to the ground, but lucky squirrel got away.
Close to Playland, highlighted in Tom Hanks movie "Big", is this wonderful beach on Manursing Island, Rye, NY. Great friends, gentle breeze, fantastic dinner & wine, made for a truly memorable Sunday evening experience.
Commenting on the beautiful flowers a man was watering in front of his home in Essex, he said "Let me show you a secret!". In the back was this amazing English garden, where he plans to add an English glasses Conservatory in the near future. Amazing, fun surprise for us.
My husband always loved this model as a kid, and found the actual kit, still in cellophane wrapping at an antique store. He started wondering about the original art. Magic happened. Just this year, the artist produced giclee prints of that exact image! Beautiful!!!
At the Brimfield, Mass show last week, we found some treasures. Lights from selvaged ships were great, and now adorn our deck. A gorgeous door facade would have been beautiful on one of our walls, but it was tres expensive. But we have pics of it.
