Secret Life of Bloggers Blog Party

It's October already? What happened to September? Normally these are my two favorite months out of the year. But instead of cornfields and colored leaves we've had pouring rain and frigid days. I'm still recovering. I've also been doing way too much work on the computer to the point that my brain is fried so I will probably be taking a short hiatus soon. Technology, how can I love you and hate you at the same time?  

Fun trip to Valley Forge for a nice walk. The hurricane canceled almost everything we had planned for the weekend.

Monarch caterpillar chomping away.

 Remember the blood moon from the lunar eclipse? Most of us almost missed it because it was cloudy.

I made a friend a faux hairwork watch guard for Civil War Reenacting to replace a modern chain.

I don't post a lot of photos of myself. I'm tring to get better about this. Here's me with my mysteriously migrating kerchief. 

 I've been spending a lot of time sewing but it's mostly boring stuff like 18th century short gowns and aprons. One day I'll sew a pin cushion.

"Oh, but we forgot Ariya! Lets take the photo again!" I had the cutest class come to work. One of their friends and classmate couldn't make the trip so a group of girls made a paper doll of her and made sure to take photos of themselves and her doing all of the activities.

Fun find at an antique bookstore! I don't collect many antique books because I don't have the time to properly care for too many but I do still collect antique cookbooks, recipes and domestic books. <3 br="" nbsp="">

The Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia now has a fantastic exhibit where you can watch artifacts being conserved.


  1. That first picture is magnificent. Is it a stick and a flower? Whatever it is it's an amazing shot. Well done. The other stand outs are the caterpillar, Blood Moon (I didn't see it here) and the picture of you. :)

    And I was wondering where September went, too. :o

    1. Thanks! I think it's called milkweed. It's the only thing some caterpillars eat. I still don't like posting photos of myself. :D
