Church Country Faire and Beautiful Roadsides!

I went to our neighbor's Church Country Faire over the weekend and found some lovely vintage books and 
a German Floral Calender! My husband had helped him take a few things during the week before and he saw a leather jacket he adored and spoke of repeatedly. You could no purchase anything until the sale started on Friday.

Well, come Friday I had absolutely no $$$ to go there but I did have some Etsy sales, ( thank goodness) on Saturday so I went by to see if they had it. Of course it had been purchased already but I did find these books and I got a grocery bag full of clothes for me for $1.00. My kind of sale. Church faires always had wonderful things donated and they were closing up Saturday and 2PM and would donate the rest of anything left to a charity organization.

Then yesterday our friend stopped by our house with a gift for my husband, guess what?, the leather jacket!
Here are my finds!

 The Jane Eyre book has no date in it but I is very old and the cover is worn but the inside is fabulous. I like the bright white paper and it feels so wonderful. I love to get read books rather than new, they fold open so much easier. I think I will read it and then put it in my "frstyfrolk" Etsy Vintage Shoppe.  Maybe the calendar also as  I have no room for it but the floral monthly graphics are fabulous for a mixed media project or framing!
I love reading Ernest Hemingway too and I have many of his books already but not some of these stories. I am fascinated by his life. His movies are fabulous also and his Paris Stories by his ex-wife I got at the library to read!  Just good reading. He was friends and partied with the Fitzgerald's
 of  "The Great Gatsby" and many artists. I can envision their life like hat Book and I can't wait to see the movie that was made this year!

With Halloween around the corner, the Edgar Allan Poe book will be a good read too. I have been going though my Halloween decor and put a collage box together for my Etsy "ByLightOfMoon" shop".

I have even been finding around the forest and abandoned sites my natural curiosities for Halloween Decor, grim and gruesome but, That's Nature sometimes! I love taking photos of old barns and buildings usually find huge wasp nests, I also got some from a tree hole in our forest last winter.

If fact, I found a couple this morning when I took some photos of an abandoned vine covered building and railroad tracks. Our countryside is just beautiful with all the fall blooming plants! I took many photos last Sunday on the way to and from our warehouse of the roadside flowers and plants, trees, and barns.
 I am  drying some goldenrod and hydrangea's and looking for more bittersweet like the wreaths, brooms,and baskets  made last year! The "Purple Iron weed"  is fabulous too. I just learned what it is and of course, "Joe Pye" Weed is awesome.
