Foxy Red and Mr. Fox

Is it too early to think about fall?  Probably.... but I couldn't resist making a shawl out of this gorgeous foxy red Noro yarn.

And..... a pretty little hit n' miss bag to go with it!

Speaking of foxy red, we spent some time up in Michigan and Canada this summer.  On the way home, we spent a night in Saugatuck, Michigan.  We found the most wonderful junker's paradise and couldn't resist this little concrete guy that really needed a home.  The problem was finding room for him in the car.  Hubby did some juggling with bags, totes, cooler, etc. and found room for this sweetie.

He's originally from an old lodge in Traverse City.  Beautifully painted concrete, and such detail in his pretty green eyes.

He now resides out back among the day lilies.  I love our new Mr. Fox!
