A Wet and Windy Fall Day...and a Sweet Gift...

It has been a really gray, wet day with very high winds here in Minnesota.  There are even the first snowflakes of the season predicted tonight and tomorrow!  With these strong winds, I am sure most trees will be bare in the next few days!  I've never minded days like this though, and tend to hibernate and get cozy.  I spent today working on an etsy collage piece, that I'll share with you soon!


I received a sweet surprise this week from my wonderful blog friend Cindy Adkins!  She sent me this charming Autumn ATC tag entitled "Family"!  It just brightened my day!

If you haven't visited Cindy's blogs~ but I'm sure many of you already follow her~ she has a blog about mixed media, altered art, and collage called Whimsical Musings ...

and has an inspirational prayer blog called I Owe It All To Him.  She also has opened a new etsy shop with her lovely art creations!  She is a talented writer and artist, and the best kind of caring blog friend!  I hope you'll stop by and visit her and say hi from me!  Thank you, Cindy!

Until next time...


  1. Lovely. Lucky you! It's cold and windy here too. Brrrr!!

  2. Hi Linda,
    Oh my gosh, how sweet of you!!! And I sure hope that your weather clears up soon. Thank you so much for this wonderful post--I am speechless!!!

  3. Isn't Cindy the sweetest! What a nice surprise to receive! It was really windy today here, too. But temps have felt more like summer than winter. I'm just not ready for the "s word"!!

  4. Burr Minneapolis is my home town. It was on the national news about the windstorms in the midwest. This weather is so weird! we are still in the 90's here in Florida, we should have started to cool down 5 weeks ago. I love the card, I do not do any paper crafting, so I am so in awe of people that do!


  5. Snow?!? Yikes!!! It has been unseasonably warm here the last few days, but like you, we had cold rain today and it has taken most of the leaves. Oh well, the colors weren't all that great this year. Love the pics!

  6. Please keep the snow out there a while longer, please. Although I am not a winter person, an afternoon snuggled under blankets watching a good movie sounds inviting.

    Love the little tag you received.

    Happy Tuesday! La

  7. I heard about the weather you are having out your way. I wish it were cold and raining here too. I love it! Take care and batten down the hatches.

  8. Lovely fall shots. I can't believe you may get snow already. We are having lots of wind and rain here, too now and it is warm and muggy like summer time.

  9. Very pretty fall pictures, Linda. Such a short and colorful season. You have captured it beautifully! I also love Cindy's items. She's very talented.

  10. Very cute tag! Gonna have to check out Cindy's place. :)

    Our weather was a mixed bag yesterday. High winds, rain (everything from mist to pounding) and it was in the 80s! Crazy weather.

    Hope you have a great day! :)

  11. That is such a sweet gift! It has been raining here and both the maple trees closest to our house have now lost all their leaves. I think we reached peak color last weekend and now...winter is on the way!


  12. Hi Linda, I thought about you when I saw the weather in your neck of the woods! Burr! I don't like the wind either, but it sounds like it's blowing in winter to a lot of the country. It's cooler and windy here today too, but nothing here to show for looks the same. I really like your pumpkin shot, and the shot with all the leaves on the ground. I'm going over to check out your friends blog, I love ATC's and what she made for you is really pretty! Stay warm!

  13. Hello Linda;
    It is so wonderful to get surprise in the mail! Cindy is very Sweet!
    What a Beautiful piece she created for you!
    It has been Very Blustery and Rainy here too. I have a Row of Sweetgums in the front of my yard that are so Beautiful right now!
    Have a Wonderful Week!

  14. Hi Linda.
    Hope the weather is better today.
    Getting mail surprises are always fun!
    Wishing you a wonderful day!
    Hugs, Sharon

  15. Would you believe we were up to 91 degrees here in GA today? The gnats have also been out in force...ugh! Enjoy your cool weather! I'm off to visit Cindy's blog and store...thanks for telling us about her.

  16. Snowflakes already? I am actually jealous, LOL! I love snow! We had some stormy weather here in the PNW recently, too! Windy and rain. Glad i got some new Wellies this fall, I'm gonna need them! ;-)

  17. What a beautiful ATC!
    I can't wait to see your collage piece. :-)

    Have a wonderful Thursday!
