HALLOWEEN

The days are short.... and the shadows long.... Now I did not intend to take a blogging hiatus, it just sort of happened. It has been a busy month here at Dog Trot Farm. There have been household projects to complete, day trips shared with my DH. I have discovered some wonderful thrifting treasures and two new primitive shops. All of which I will share in future posts. I have visited Camp Wool in Kennebunk, if you are a "hooker" or enjoy stitchery of any kind you will feel like a kid in a candy store, I certainly do. Tuesdays have been spent with my dad. He comes to the mainland and we tend to the grocery shopping, any errands dad or my mom might have and of course that includes breakfast at "IHOP". The groceries are delivered to Casco Bay Lines and ferried out to the Island. I offered my services to a friend in preparation for her daughter's Halloween party and finally my mom underwent successful cataract surgery. The only place that it has been quiet is in the hen house. My youngest girls Fern and Phoebe have begun laying. They have given me such small smooth eggs, the cutest little eggs I have ever seen. Lulu is still producing "jello" eggs, but otherwise appears healthy. Winslow.... is prepared for Trick or Treaters....well if I were to be honest Winslow becomes so excited we have to put him in the car....he thinks he's heading to Wal-mart. Winslow loves Wal-mart. and finally.... beware....Spiderella might be lurking about.
Happy Halloween!

Oh what a cute picture of Winslow Homer! So cute and he looks wonderful.
Is that you? Are you Spiderella? Great costume.
I wondered what you had been doing and how it has been around Dog Trot Farm.
Glad you updated and I can't wait to hear all about the great places you have been visiting.
Have a Happy Halloween.

spiderella has on those sexy striped stocking I just love.
I too found camp wool and she had a hook in the weekend. I decided I had to much going on to attend but I will visit again this winter I loved her shop. There is another shop in Rollinsford NH wool andf goods with wonderful staff. and a very nice selection of wool. I also heard about crow primitives? I think that is the name while at camp wool. It also is in kennebunk, but must call in advance. They are know for hand dyed wools. Happy Halloween
