Photo Challenge - TREES

Time for another photo challenge over at Donna's, be sure to check out the other people who are sharing their photos this week!

I really like trees and I guess since I have grown up on the prairies, I really like "lone trees" against the vast prairie sky. 

Most of the trees are bare as we have had some strong winds.  We got some fall clean up done with raking leaves up.  I don't really like the bare landscape, and look forward to some snow to cover up the drab colors.  Although, in Souther Alberta we don't seem to get as much snow.

This was one of my favorite shots just taken with my Iphone.
This row of trees is on the grounds of the community college.






This is a tree in our yard, i took this shot last winter.



Collage made in Picmonkey


This little tree, which is a sour cherry tree of some sort, was the last to have its leaves change color.
It was a foggy morning when I took this picture, just a few days ago.



This is the same little tree in a photo I took last year.
Had some fun editing it in Picmonkey




There is a coulee just a mile or so from our property.  This lone tree stands on the edge of it.
Oh how I would love to have a house built on the edge of this coulee!

Here it is right out of the camera



And with some editing fun







I even brought some of Mother Natures color into my kitchen this year.






Have a great week end everyone and be sure to check out the other pictures at the party.

Filling up some empty spaces in country style

Just another picture on my wee autumn display that I have on my rangehood shelf.  It wasn't quite complete, so I had Mother Nature help me out!  You can see some of the other fall decor I
came up with this fall {here}


It just needed some more height and some filling in.
So hanging leaves and a hunk of fence post fixed it up.











Much better..




Happy Fall Ya'll
Have a lovely day!

Simple decorating for fall

It is a frosty morning here today...signs that it is nearing the end of October.  We have had really nice weather though.

I did a little bit of autumn decorating around the house, just simple little switches to make things reflect the changing season.

Coffee station
You can check out the before n after for this area here.


Some little plates and a pumpkin welcome


The plates on either side are one of the few things I have 
from my Grandma Meyer.


Easy decor for the mantel
Darrell actually did a paint/stain treatment on this old
fence gate to make it look like barn board.



I don't have expensive art...these are just prints from an old calendar



I like having a frame on my wee range hood mantel.
I just change it out with free prints that you can download


Happy Fall Ya'll


I get a daily bible verse through Instagram
I am always amazed how things come our way, that are either 
just what we need to hear, or something we can pass onto a friend.

Todays verse 


Have a great week everyone!

Mosaic Monday

We made a trip to Fernie the last week end of September.  First time being in Fernie during the autumn season.  It sure is pretty and I love the sweater weather that mean fall temperatures.

Of course, we always stay at Birch Meadow Lodge and here is yet another grouping of pictures from our favorite BnB!

These were taken using my Iphone, but all in all, not too bad.
I used an app on my phone to create the collage as well.


I liked the stacked wood pile, signs of keepin the home fires burning for the season ahead.



Have a great week everyone!

Christine's Autumn Door

We have the best neighbours down the road from us!  Christine is very creative and her home always has a welcoming feeling to it.  This is her autumn doorway!  now don't you think that just says "Come on in!"
I love the cedar that they have incorporated 


Some editing in Picmonkey.



Have a great, colorful week end!


Linking up to a party!

Card making on a blustery day

It is a windy, blustery day outside.  So I got my scrapbook room all cleaned up so I could create a new mess!  Here is what I came up with...  I am going to put these in the mail to a cousin who is a college student on Thetis Island.  I just love snail mail surprises.









Last year about this time, I was just getting my scrapbook room set up.
You can view the before n after of this wee room here.

Still Life Photo Challenge

I enjoy the Photo Challenges that Donna gets us going on!  Thanks for challenging us to put something together and sharing it with others.

I also enjoy making collages of my pictures, so I hope that is okay that I group a few things together.
I use a Canon Rebel XSi and usually just wing it!!  I really should take a class or two and learn more about my camera.

It is another beautiful autumn day here in Southern Alberta .... perfect for getting outside and capturing a few more Autumn images.  enjoy the day everyone!



Sunflowers, autumn leaves, and a quote..
 I use Picmonkey for some fun editing and in this picture
just put a texture over top of the whole collage.



This is one of my favorite bowls, so I took it on a little photo shoot of its own!



Apples on a scale

Mailboxes near Harmony, CA
