The Last Camping Trip of 2013'
Alan and I wanted to get one last camping trip in for this year. We couldn't have asked for better weather and scenery, it was just breathtaking!
This was where we camped. The leaves are starting to turn their brilliant colors, and very soon this will be a palette of Autumn glory.
We took our old girl Tessa with us, as we know this will be her last trip ever. She loves to go camping and though she is so very old and her health and old bones are failing her, she was so excited to go.
Behind Tessa you can see Lizzie's tail.. she is my lil' Chihuahua and she is not much of a camping gal.
Lizzie pretty much whined the whole trip. Lol..
Alan kept a toasty fire going.
We ate dutch oven stroganoff, we talked and we laughed while sipping on some St. Chapels Special Harvest wine til late into the night.
The next morning we headed home with a bundle of Autumn leaves...for decorating.
I am looking forward to cutting some of my Aspen leaves when they turn yellow. I think they will be stunning tucked in with the oranges and reds..against the freshly painted Rockport Grey walls.
I tucked a few leaves in my newest thrift store find.
This is a Royal Copley Doe and Fawn vase. I only paid $1 for this treasure.. I was just tickled as I hadn't been thrifting for a while.
It was a wonderful couple of days :)
Today, on my work table I have a few witches that need some hair and a pointy hats... after the witches get some hair, its off to the garden to pick natures bounty, then maybe a little Fall decorating.
Do any of you like to go camping in the Fall? or maybe have a Fall picnic?
I'd love to hear about it :)
