Nature Journal and Finish for the Weekend


Happy FALL!  I read somewhere that fall is the knitters season and I think it's true!  When the weather cools we can bundle up in wool makings.
Noah's birthday was fun!  He's one!


My birthday is Monday and I have received many early gifts.  I love this Willow Tree figurine that Jenny gave me.  TIM! 


 The grands have been waving the butterfly net around.  Speedy painted ladies! 

 Last Saturday we got to see these precious ones.  We saw all 11 grands last Saturday!
 I pulled out the zucchini plants and picked some flowers.
 Plum's birthday is today!  We went to the American Girl store on Wednesday.  Isn't the new American Girl doll pretty?
 I made her try on her sweater (it was still damp from the blocking process).  CUTE little birthday girl! 
 Noah's birthday dinner was on Wednesday night.  
 This is my Finish for the Weekend this week!  Noah's birthday socks!  

 Today is our first nature journal day (Marcie and I and maybe YOU!)  Let me know if you posted a nature journal entry today and I'll add your link at the bottom.  


 I have a busy weekend over at Kelli's house.  Our renovations are going so well.  Almost done!  I'll take pictures when the furniture is in, the shower curtain is hung, and the window curtains are up!  It's so clean and fresh!
I hope you are happy that another lovely season is upon us.  I wish you snugness.  
Pop over to see other nature journals!  I'll add them as I find them.

Oh I love th little sweater and I see that Plum got the new AG doll! I am sitting here with the new AG catalog at my side -- I think I love them as much as Bean does. Looks like you had a lovely week. Hoping you have a great weekend!

It looks like you have had a busy, successful week. Full of such fun and I am sure you are so happy. Your birthday is just around the corner. You have lots of September birthdays. I love that look on Plums face.
Lots of happy things. Its a nice way to start my morning. Have a lovely weekend. I can't wait to see your new rooms. How fun!

So many birthdays this month! Happy Birthday to all three of you! Little Noah's birthday socks are so pretty! and Plum is just adorable in her sweater, and holding that new doll. A special Happy Birthday to you! Sure wish that I could knit. You make it look so fun and cozy. You pick such pretty colors.

A lot of birthday celebrations going on at your place. Love the sweet little birthday socks for Noah. This is the perfect season to bring out the yarn. It is definitely a knitters season. Happy Birthday!

Deb said...

You've certainly had some sweet birthdays to celebrate. I have the same figurine holding the cat but my girl is sitting. Very cute. And you are a very good knitter. I guess practice does make perfect. I should find my needles again. ;-) Give Timothy a big hug from me. xo

Susie said...

Happy birthday to you young mommy. Your children are blessed with your sweet hand made gifts. What cutie pies they are. Happy birthday to them also. Blessings to everyone, xoxo, Susie

The sweater looks great as do the socks.
I like all the seasons and always welcome in the next one.

Debi said...

I love fall, it's my favorite season. I am knitting two projects right now, a hat to match the sweater I just finished and finishing up my afghan. I'm almost there! I love Plum's sweater and Noah's socks... they will be warm and cozy this winter! Happy weekend!

Granny Marigold said...

September certainly is a month of birthday celebrations in your family. That's the way October is for us. Two of my children and a grand have birthdays and there are a couple of wedding anniversaries too.
The Willow Tree figurine is just so appropriate for you!!

Happy birthday, a little early. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Julie said...

Hello my friend & Happy Birthday ... yes early too I know :-) Yes I am indeed happy that spring is upon us ... autumn & spring are my favourite seasons of them all. I have spent the whole day in the garden as the sun has been out today! So wonderful. Spring always brings me Hope! I cant believe little Noah is turning One already ...seems just yesterday the wee soul was born. Xxx

I wish you snugness too! I am deeply nesting and loving it. What a difference cool temps and rain make. Love all your photos, especially of Noah. How lovely! :) Kit

I'm in awe of you knitters. That pink jacket and of course the birthday socks...wow.

You've had a really busy and colourful time. I'm sure your pretty makes went down really well.

A very happy early birthday to you dear Pom Pom! May God bless you dearly this new birthday year! Love the photo of little Noah sleeping. so sweet. Happy Fall to you!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Great birthday socks...so cute on him and hard to believe he's already 1! Yes to Autumn but it's still in the 80's here so not hurrying to get out the yarn and needles. I need to...Christmas Mother has asked for scarves and I've two little girls to make hats/scarves to help keep them warm in their cold farm house.
Early birthday greetings, Karen, may you spend it enjoying many blessings.

Deb said...

Lovely post of fun and family! Happy birthday to you. My birthday is also coming up soon. I love Willow Tree figurines as well and have quite a collection going. Have a wonderful week and a great birthday!

Annesphamily said...

Happy birthday to you! WHen birthdays are surrounded by those we love and good company what else really is there that we need? I love the willow Tree figurines. I have this one too, received it when my boy Boots passed away. My first one was the Kitchen angel with green teapot. Loved it so much. Our youngest Hannah, a quiet but thoughtful girl. THanks for visiting me. I have been trying to figure out the new blog because I keep getting emails saying the google following takes them to a virus page! Yikes! I think I solved it as ZI went there to follow myself at the new blog. LOL! Oh the things I do to stay sane!
Your photos are wonderful! We have a cooler day, lots of rain yesterday and this morning. It is a nice change.
Getting ready for our middle girls Dec 2 wedding. So much to do!
Thank you and have a blessed day.
HUGS

Hi, dear. Here's my latest autumn journal post: http://mkatchris.blogspot.com/2017/09/autumn-journaling-sept-28th.html

Not sure if that's how you wanted me to give it to you, or if there's a linking procedure I'm supposed to do. Thanks :)

MK

Granny Marigold said...

I posted the first pages of my Autumn journal today and like MK I'm not sure how this works but you can let me know.
