More Martha's Vineyard

This is my first photo mosaic. I used the Flickr Toys option and uploaded my vacation photos to the mosaic. I think it's pretty cool. So this is a little taste of the Vineyard-Martha's Vineyard to be exact. We saw some gingerbread cottages in Oak Bluffs, lighthouses in Edgartown and Aquinnah, and even an alpaca farm. It was a whirlwind visit, just 3 days but jam packed with food, fun and friends and it was the best weather of the Summer. I already want to go back!!

The Pictures are beautiful and makes me miss it all the more. Lived in Conn. as a child while my father was stationed there with the Navy (we went to Maine during that timeframe).
I visited Mystic and Groton when my sister and I each dated sailors, and my husband and I took a trip to Providence and New Port seven years ago.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE New England!
I don't blame you for wanting to go back already! Take care, Rebecca ~ Simply Stated

These shots are absolutely beautiful! I'm here from Pink Saturday in Feb 2009. I get so "stuck" in people's blogs, that I be it will take me one month to visit all the posts at Beverly's place. Ha...ha...I'd so love to visit Martha's Vineyard one day.

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
