Street Sale

Hello Friends,
Just a note to let you know, I will be taking a blog break this week.

This year our village is having its 40th Street Sale.
My mom has been making crafts this summer. If you are a regular here at The River, you know my dad had a heart attack in April. My parents are dairy farmers. With the heart attack came many other changes. My parents are no longer milking cows.
Both my dad and mom are enjoying trying new things.
Farm life keeps one very busy. They are enjoying time to do more with the hobbies they have.

My mom has always been a crafty gal. I asked her if she would like to set up together at the Street Sale. I will have my Autumn Decor and some late summer flower bouquets. My mom will have metal art, Christmas crafts and birch crafts.

 This week I will be harvesting and creating.

 I will be back soon with photos and stories from the sale.

Have a great week!
