The Search...

this time of year is always so hectic...

due to the wet weather all summer and the gorgeous fall we have been having we were blessed with an extension on our permit. this means we are just starting into the fall gather when normally we would have been almost finished by now...{this is my little way of warning you that future posts are going to be crazy, full of cattle. the working of cattle, the herding of cattle, and of course the general cussing of cattle!!} :0)

before we are up to our ears in cattle we decided to make a trip to the pumpkin patch. we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful afternoon in our search of the perfect pumpkin...


acres and acres of orange orb goodness...


of course the kids found their perfects right off...

mine took a little more searching, but behold this beauty that came home with me...


richard was even able to find a perfect...


oh alright...he really couldn't have cared less...we were given the eyeball roll every time we packed another pumpkin over to the trailer, but the rest of us had a good time!!

now for the carving of our perfects, this is where my patience isn't all that great..oh, and not to mention i still have to sew a costume...did i mention i was a procrastinator?? :0)

enjoy your weekend dear readers!





i am working on photos of new goods that will be added to the shop on sunday...
also, the *amazing* giveaway from my little trip to SPARK has been postponed until monday...i have an *uber* talented artist that has decided to add in a little something, something for you all!! can't wait!!
