A riot of color

We drove down to Little Nashville in Brown County, Indiana yesterday...and for a change I really, really enjoyed it. The weather was nice. Not raining, not too hot. It wasn't crowded. In other words, it was perfect. And I took several pictures, a lot were at this shop.

Either one of these would make such a hard jigsaw puzzle...we looked and looked at this shop and I still felt like we didn't see everything. And believe it or not, I didn't buy anything. The only thing we bought down there was an Elmo doll for Bright Eyes. I can't wait to see what she does when she sees it.It has been very cool fall weather. Sarah and Jeremy had a cookout Tuesday night for a friend of theirs that is moving to Washington. The state. I went down and helped Sarah keep Lorelei entertained...though it was more like she entertained us. Her giggle box was easy to kick on that day. I honestly think she looks for something to laugh at.

And I got reports from both daughters about how good Otto was with the children that came. To be such a hardheaded dog, he sure is good with little ones. He can and will drag me around their yard when playing tug of war, yet when playing with a small pre-kindergarten girl...he didn't pull her down one single time. His demeanor totally changes when it is a child. Rachel had never actually seen him interact with kids, other than trying to lick Lorelei, and she was totally amazed.

And Lorelei just loves him...as she does the cats and Shelby. And he will be patient with her as Bubbie is....

Both photos are so pretty, I agree either one could be a puzzle, and hard ones at that.

I am sure Lorelei is right at the Elmo age and will love Elmo.

Have the trees in Brown County started to turn? I can remember autumn colors in Brown Country -- just beautiful.

Hi Rose, Looks like you had a wonderful time in Brown County. That little shop looked like it was SO neat. Can't believe you didn't buy anything (other than the Elmo for Lorelei)...

LOVE your new header.... So adorable.

Wish I could see Lorelei's face when she gets her Elmo.... Hope you take pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sounds like a good trip out.. glad to see you out and about as well... I like the new header Rose.... will you be making some of your Gourds into these?

This looks like a store I'd love browsing in. I'd want to buy but....
Lily loves Elmo. I know Lorelei will too.
Love the new header!!!

btw: It took me an hour to just download all the pics for the photo hunt - then I had to do the captions. Although it was fun I'm not sure I'd do another one.

Wonderful header, and your comment about the jigsaw puzzle made me chuckle!

I haven't been to Nashville, IN in years, but have talked with Mike about going when there is some fall color....of course that is when it is jammed with tourists. I love the grinning gourds in the header! Those colorful bottles look interesting.

Like the new header, Rose! Look at all the bright colours in these photos! Very pretty.

I bet Lorelei does look for things to laugh at. One of my daughters is like that even now as an adult.
