Last of the yard work....

We moved into our new home the first of September...It has been a very busy fall... We have finished our deck, poured a patio, work on our fence, laid sod, fit in a holiday, planted perennials, trees and hedge. Fall is a great time to get deals on plants. We visited one store that only had about 5 trees left...there was this one homely tree that hubby really like.... For $5.00 we couldn't go wrong so as I much as I thought I didn't like it...we got it.

But once we got him home he grew on me!
He looks like the a Dr. Seuss tree...we call him the Grinch...

Weeping Pine
Well our outside work is done for the year...the snow has even come and I think it's the finest looking tree I have ever seen ...what do you think??

This Old House....

West of Sundre ...we found this old house....
 I'm thinking it was quite a cute house....
The inside doesn't tell us much about the owners...an old trunk remains holding up a beam.
Looks like a lot of hard work went into building this house....
Behind the house the shed....still stands...

Adventures in My Backyard...

Hubby and I are enjoying our Backyard View.... it seems that everyday the 'pictures' change. I thought it would be a great idea to do a weekly post of what we see in Our Backyard..... I was discussing this idea with him when our 5 year old granddaughter was visiting...and I was wondering what I should call the post...then she came out with... "You should call it your Adventurous Backyard'...so with that idea.... I will call these post....'Adventures in My Backyard'.....

So here goes my first post of the Adventures in My Backyard!

Quilt Complete

I made up our spare room with the Quilt that I started last spring.

I had picked up a handmade bed skirt with hand crochet lace along the bottom...if you look at the post when I bought it I never thought I would use it as a bed skirt...but it worked perfect for the bed and the quilt!!
Well I have some pictures to put up and I would like to make some pillow shams then I think my little guest room is ready!!
