Life in Focus
Photo Challenge #4 Get outside! Show us a cityscape, landscape, even your own backyard.
Show us the world you live in and post your new photos in this thread.
Started sewing some bunting for my desk at work. Photos to come.
Mom has been far more crafty, piecing together a jacket from an old jacket, a sweater, a pair of jeans and another top! Didn’t it come out great?!
This project was inspired by Crispina, a lovely lady who met vending at Rhinebeck this past fall.
Remember her? She was so much fun– playing along with our Traveling Underpants!

Quote of the Week
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
