Grapefest


Grape stomp competition. I didn't participate, but would've loved to squish some grapes between my toes. :)  Maybe next time.

Vintage

It's always amazing what you'll find when you least expect it.  We were at Grapefest today, and I had to stop in this stationery store just to see what they had.  Found this little pretty sitting on a shelf in the back.  I'm in love!

Fall

Spotted this along my walk this morning. 



















I'll plant my feet
set down roots
stand strong.

Pumpkins

Saw these at Walmart the other day.  Are you ready for Halloween?

Classic

As promised, here's more from yesterday's Arts, Antiques & Autos event:
















































More again tomorrow.  This is all I had the energy to add to the blog for tonight.  Either my allergies are acting up, or I have a cold, not sure which, but whatever it is it's kicking my butt, so I'm off to rest.  Good night.

Weekend Event

Today was perfect for the 13th Annual Arts, Antiques & Autos event in Denton.  This is one of my favorite shots.  A sock monkey sitting in the passenger seat of one of the classic cars!  I love sock monkeys!! He looked so cute sitting there, I couldn't resist taking a picture.




 

















It was in the mid 80s, a light breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. 



















The husband was mostly (or only) interested in the cars,



 











but me, there was so much more to see and do.  I like old town squares - the little shops, places to eat, the history. 

















And of course, the other interesting things I find along the way.




There was a live band playing on the front lawn of the courthouse.













I'll post more of the cars tomorrow.

Old Cabins

Check out this week's gallery at Jessica Rogers PhotographyHere's my offering - part of a beautiful old cabin with white eyelet detail curtains.




















I'm also looking forward to an arts, antiques and autos event this weekend.  Hopefully the weather holds out and it'll be a great opportunity for some more photos.

P.S.  Speaking of old things...I hope I don't end up grouchy when I'm old.  I was at my doctor's office this morning and some older man was asked to sign some papers. He grumbled about why he had to do it, which was explained to him several times by a woman at the front desk, and said it was a "waste of time."  Waste of time?  Dude, you're sitting in the doctor's office waiting.  What else are you really doing? 

Sigh...some people.  So glad it's Friday!

Patterns




















The weekend hashtag project at Instagram has been to take pictures of building patterns.  I had loads of fun yesterday taking pictures of tiles, bricks, windows, old houses, anything that caught my eye.  I truly enjoy moments like that when the productivity is high.  41 pictures.  That's just what I used.  There were plenty more that ended up in the trashcan, but that's okay, too.

I took my new toy - my Olloclip - with me, and didn't even take it out of my purse!  I was caught up in taking pictures, less concerned with switching lenses at the time.  Maybe on the next outing.

This lightpost was outside the mexican food restaurant where we had lunch.  It's a pattern of sorts, just not on or in a building. 

More patterns to follow...
