Glue it Tuesday Week 33 and Art Every Day Month #3

The closest thing I've come to gluing this week: a leaf sandwich.
I've been too busy watching nature's paintbrushes sweep the skies,
taking autumn walks around the neighborhood, 
letting the sunshine in, 
shaking out rugs, 
making umbrella flowers,
and taking rakes to the lakes of leaves in our yard. The Fall-ing is almost complete.
I also sneaked a couple of chocolate chip muffins,
finished my third piece for Art Every Day Month (I will catch up I will catch up I will catch up),
enjoyed one of the last pretty autumn moons before the sky turned to a bag of dirty marshmallows, 
I sent an order of my washi tapes and magnets to Frenzy Stamper in Old Town Scottsdale, AZ (hooray and thank you!!), 
waved hi to New York (right now I am reading The Island at the Center of the World, a history of the Dutch colonization of Manhattan), 
took a little trip to Mitsuwa, the largest Japanese supermarket in the US (can I say fantastic! couldn't get the kids out of the candy aisles), 
 and took a little trip to their loading dock in the back & found the pallet parking lot.
We stopped at the exit of A&P, as we always do, to look for unclaimed treasures. She looks in every single machine, every single time.
And -- to cap off the week -- we celebrated our two year Jerseyversary. Two years. I cannot believe it has been two years. It has been a crazy, unpredictable, surprising, upside down, messy and very flavorful adventure. Just like these ice cream cones.

Beautiful photos! No wonder you're distracted! Stay in the moment I say and soak it all up before the winter greys drift in and leech all the color from the world (love the "bag of dirty marshmellows" description!) Happy Fall-ing to you!
