A Stranger in Town!

Look who we saw in town today.  The other side says he lived from 1850-1911. And he made some good stuff during that time!

One of the advantages of living on the west end of town is the beautiful sunsets we get to drive towards when driving home at just the right time:

Boulder Junction Christmas Walk!

We joined Dick’s cousin & wife Michael & Marianne at Boulder Junction’s Christmas Walk.  First dinner at a favorite place The Headwaters.  Then visiting all the shops downtown. It was a bit chilly but with the caroling and horse drawn hayrides it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Everywhere you look!!!

Fun!

It the time of year when every store starts having their Christmas open house. This last weekend we went to the open house at The 13th Colony. It is a great store on the south end of Minocqua with so many old fashioned Christmas decorations. It is a really fun place to shop.  And a fun way to welcome us there:

Happy Halloween!

This is the greatest decorating for Halloween I have ever seen. Saw this house on the way to visit a friend in Mequon, WI. The whole yard was covered with stuff but to get up close and show the fun I only have half of it in the picture but you get the idea of a fun Halloween House!

Don’t you just love the wedding couple??

What is this?

We found these holes on the side of a hill on Booth Lake Road. Look at the claw marks outside the holes.  What animal do you think made these holes and claw marks? Give me some guesses!!!

Bottle Trees

When I put the blog up of the bottles on the pole, one of my customers commented that it was a bottle tree and they have one near them.  Well that was the first I heard of them but much to my surprise the other day I saw them for sale in the yard of a gift store in Mercer!  And they had lots of them! The trees ran $65 – $125 without the bottles although the bottles were all around $2. She had some really beautiful and unusual ones.
