Fall has fallen and other happenings!!

And all of a sudden Fall is upon us!! Did the change come overnight??? I swear my neighbor's tree was green one day and totally golden the next. I felt like I had been in a closet for a week or something but I was assured by authorities (the teller at the bank, for one) that Yes, it was an overnight occurrence. Now, the store has looked like fall for awhile, but as so much had sold and new has come in that the look is, well, new, again!! Almost like an overnight change-oh this is getting spooky!!


A tree has grown out of our wall w/ adorable gourd pumpkin baskets sprouting on the branches.


Bitty, pine cone candles


A contemporary take on H'ween-black & white



Love these new signs w/ a great old look!




As one of the winners of Best of Boise (third place "Best Local Store"-behind the Coop & Record Exchange!!) I was invited to attend the Boise Weekly's bash at the Knitting Factory downtown. (Actually, I think anyone could have attended but I'm trying to sound extremely snobbish and exclusive!) My husband dragged me there and I did have a good time after all!!

The Weekly staff greeted us at the door and gave us drink tokens, raffle tickets & cool "exclusive" wristbands. They had a great buffet spread for us and since Rick and I were almost the oldest people there we enjoyed people watching......

...in the dark!

Ah, there is the crowd!

And the stage for live music-yes, that's right, we left before that started!! I wish I'd gotten a few photos of the women's roller derby team. They were promoting heavy and were so friendly andcute...if only I was younger..............................would be fun to go watch them sometime. I heard all the $$ they raise goes to charity. Now that's a sport!
Take care!
