Happy Halloween

Our big red barn, Monclova, Ohio

It’s Halloween in the country. Rain has dominated our October as the farmers rush to take in the crops. Our little piece of the country {11 acres} is really soggy. The pond is up and we have a second pond in the back yard, that the deer are enjoying playing in the water.

The mums are hanging on too, with all this rain they are still thriving. Pumpkins are getting soggy and will be upped in the back yard for the deer to enjoy.

Colors of fall in the trees Monclova, Ohio

Quite a few of our trees have not turned yet. With the above average temperatures, the leaves aren’t expected to turn until the middle of November. Making it a rush to get them picked up before the snow starts to fall.

Enjoy Halloween with your family and friends. We are on to the holidays at the Antique Mall and looking forward to a new year! Stay safe and enjoy!

Peace, love & junk,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! So I was playing with some plan wood cutouts and an oil Sharpie. Santa ornaments were created. Had to make a Man in the Moon ornament too. Who can resist this guy? Not me! All that’s left to do is, drill a hole in the top and add a … Continue reading Merry, merry
  • Welcome December
    December is so gorgeous in the country. Our first measurable snowfall of the season happened this week, two inches of the pretty white stuff. The first snow is always the prettiest. It glistens, no paths, everything looks so perfect. Quite often it looks like a Christmas card. The barn always stands out in the snow. … Continue reading Welcome December
