Who's scaring who?

I found these paper lanterns this year that even the cats can't get to.

It's clear that no one is scaring Big'un.

We aren't a very crafty family, but I did repurpose a very large item.
Do you know what it is?

A vintage Agatha Christie book Halloween Party.
There is a penciled-in "15c" on the jacket.
I don't remember if I paid that little for it, but I wouldn't have paid much.

The Barn Collective #5

This is actually a business in Leiper's Fork, Tennessee.

BTW, you folks up north . . .  please send some fall down here.
It was Eighty.Six.Degrees today.  Yes, 86.

Will not bite . . . ?

Fall festival sights

Some scarecrows and decor in my little town.

A few other little cuties.

And Spider Man was there also!

The Barn Collective #4

Guardian angel bull

Do you see it?

Do you see both of them?
I stopped in the road, even though there was no traffic, I rushed and snapped.
No time for manual focus.
Came out cool anyway.

No rubbish here

No rubbish here, just good vintage.

We went to a car show at
this past Saturday.  There were many nice vintage vehicles and some newer muscle cars.  I really liked all the picnic/travel items in this station wagon.

The Barn Collective - A link up for barns

Fall 2013
Extreme southern Giles County, Tennessee

I didn't get many takers on the barn linkup, but I'll do this one and see what happens.
I'm calling it The Barn Collective
(and I'm also sharing with Rubbish Tuesday)

The Barn Collective

Taking a poll here . . . who would be interested in participating in another barn link up?
If there is enough interest indicated by comments on this post, I will do a trial run maybe next Monday-Tuesday.  I do not want to commit to a regularly scheduled one until I see what the time obligations will be for me.
So, no promises for an ongoing meme, but let's do one round!

Big Blue

Almost every color in the rainbow can be found on a blueberry bush.
From earlier this summer in our blueberry patch.

Pokeweed review

My annual shots of the poke weed plant that comes up down at the garden.
I always remind my husband to leave one stalk because I think it's a looker.

These were taken one evening in late August just seconds apart and the only change was that I stepped to the west a couple feet and pointed the camera more to the south to get the garage out of the shot.  Just a couple of feet can change the lighting quite a bit.

Garden spider

An enormous garden spider at my in-laws' a couple of weeks ago.
About two inches at least.

Saturday, September 13, 2014


Got it all here.
Rural, old, architecture, abandoned, fence, church, blue sky

Sometimes we avoid the interstate going back and forth to Nashville.
We found this gem this week.
