Bare Trees and Falling Leaves

Busy weekend! The craft show on Saturday went pretty well. It was so much easier setting up at a show where we didn't have to provide the tables or a tent! Here's a pic of our table.

St. Greg's Craft Show 2010 Table 01

You can click on the picture to see more pics of the table on Flickr. I still have yet to unpack completely, but that's mostly because yesterday was spent raking all the leaves out of our yard.

Now I have to preface the rest of this post with this picture.

This was my last house. It had a big yard, but notice there are no trees. I haven't had to rake any leaves in seven years. Yesterday, my husband and I raked leaves for 2 hours! Then I had to stop and he took another 45 minutes to finish! Here is a picture of HALF of the leaves we raked up!

Now it was the most beautiful fall day we've had in a long time and it was fun to get out and watch the kids jump in the leaves. I also know it was good exercise and I did need to get out of the house, but I am sooo sore today! I am so glad we have mostly maple trees, because I think we might be able to get away with not raking again this season! :)

Anyway, the other nice thing about spending all that time outside, was it gave me a nice idea for a mini treasury! So I hope you enjoy it, the theme is empty trees and red leaves!
