~Art Anyone ? ~

So I love to tinker in my yard and pond and I have been tinkering all day. So I felt like doing something fun and creative. Now mind you I love wine so what a great way to recycle those wine bottles !

~Autumn Jewels~


Every season hath its pleasures;
Spring may boast her flowery prime,
Yet the vineyard's ruby treasures
Brighten Autumn's sob'rer time.
Thomas Moore


Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. John Muir

~Fall Equinox Traditions~

"The month of September also marks the 'Wine Moon,' the lunar cycle when grapes are harvested from the arbors, pressed and put away to become wine...The full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox is known as the 'Harvest Moon,' since farmers would also harvest their crops during the night with the light of the full moon to aid them.

~Welcome Fall~

Well it's official , Fall is here ... If someone were to ask me what I like about
fall I would have to say sipping wine by the fire while dreaming of summer. Fall is not my favorite season but fall and I manage to get along because we have too!

Ok there are a few things that I can admit to liking about fall, but there are not many. I enjoy carving pumpkins around the campfire while sipping wine, fall hikes and fall photography, making pumpkin walnut bread and sitting by the fire with a good book. I guess that's more than a few things...

But truest to my heart is summer on the ocean, it's where I am most happy.
I love swaying in the hammock for hours with a good book at Edisto while watching pelicans glide over, just being free to dream. Edisto is a place that you can do just that, no one has a care in the world there and no one seems to be in a hurry for that matter either. The locals like to call Edisto "Edislow" that pretty much sums it up. There is nothing better than waking up to the ocean and watching the sun come up with a cup of coffee up on the beach.
What a fantastic way to start your day.
