Fall Hot Air Balloons

Today was a beautiful fall day in upstate New York. It was in the 60's and sunny. Around 3:00 this afternoon we were outside doing some yard work and winterizing. My husband noticed the first balloon over our pasture and we soon saw two more. We stopped our work and just relaxed as we watched them slowly float through the sky. We live in an area that is familiar with balloons. Check out the Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival. It is an annual event that is usually held the third week of September.

Bottle Display

My husband and I love old bottles. We have collected them since we first got married. This summer he made a small shelf that fits nicely on our bedroom wall to display just a small number from our collection. We have hundreds boxed up in the garage that we would love to display. A project for next year is to get them all out and cleaned up and displayed. I love seeing this every day! Collecting something and storing it away is senseless. We want to see what we have and enjoy it all the time!

Scrounging on an old Farm

We have friends that own a large old farm. There are several old dump areas way in the back over their long stone wall. They were nice enough to let me and Eddie look for bottles and other interesting things. We went for a little while this weekend, and this is what we hauled out. These items were very close to the surface so we know there is much more to be found. We love old bottles and already have hundreds of them at home. We have an open invitation to come back and look for more. They asked that we do let them know if we find a big treasure like a can of gold coins! We had so much fun and a relaxing time together.
