Day Trip

It was so hot here that we decided to head over to Half Moon Bay for the day. I know, I know, we're lucky dogs. I couldn't bring myself to feel too bad but I did think of all you stuck in the heat.
If you want to see Fall and Halloween you've got to take that drive over to the coast. Those folks in Half Moon Bay know how to decorate for the season. Be sure to plan some time to stop and take it all in. Pumkins everywhere!
The waves at the beach were the biggest we've ever seen there. Maybe the full moon.......who knows but we sure enjoyed watching them. Of couse I couldn't catch the full impact of them with my little camera I'd just miss the shot everytime. Try clicking on the pictures to make them bigger.

Things to Collect

I just remembered that Sept. is National Sewing Month. Even though Sept. is almost over it's fun to know these things!
Toy sewing machines are a huge among collectors. We have 3 really cute ones in the store right now. You don't have to be a sewer to collect them, just a lover of cute toys from days gone by. This darling Good Housekeeping cover shows how every little girl wanted to be like Mom and sew. I remember making doll clothes on my little machine and also on my Grandmother's treadle sewing machine. It was the only thing my Mother used.
Notice the little doll dress displayed with the toy sewing machine in the picture. Those are collectible too. Looks so cute hanging on a wall or of course on a doll. We have a few of those around the store too.

Favorite time of year

Mine is Fall what's yours? This morning looked like a fine fall day, cloudy and even a little light rain. Hope you like these cute cliparts I found and I hope it makes up for my lack of blogging this month. I promise to do better!
