Putting Up the Gutters, More Bead People

 A beauteous end of day reward overlooking the Bay of Fundy from up on the hill.

 At the Bench -The Bead People "Earrings" are still developing their personalities.

... and the tide has still been going in and out.. it is part way out here... well maybe 1/2 way out...  it usually comes all the way to the top of the beach when Full tide hits.  Lots of beach to share today and nobody but the 3 dogs to share it with.... so no leashes needed.. always a silver lining if we look hard enough.

 In late September we finally got around to putting eavestrough up on our house. yes, we are what you would call Guttering our house in St. Martins...

 and of course, we decided to do it ourselves.


 ...this part is ready for the piece that directs the water away from the house. 
In the background is the wood in the woodshed, that was put in in the spring.

 That makes us feel much better...  It wasn't hard but having to deal with the staging to get to the roof line at the top of the second floor was the hardest... but of course John thought that was no problem at all.  If it was left to me, I never would have been able to handle the staging. I can climb up though... carefully.

A full moon back in September rising while it was still light out..
 All the while these little Folk have been coming to life in the studio.

When a day ends like this, what more could you ask for.

 and other days we have visitors checking out the firepit... a mother and 2 young ones come out quite often ...
Then there are days when the mist changes everything... and the mystery of it is satisfying.

Another group have been sent on their way to find new homes under Christmas trees near and far.

UPDATE:  The Bead People have been SOLD OUT.. Thank you All

I absolutely love your blog. I wish I were young and fit enough to do as much manual work as you are ding.

But I adore your art and craft even more, those earrings are delightful. I want a pair of two, large ones.

In order not to lose you I am going to follow. It would be lovely if you visited me too.

All I can do is write and take photos, but you never know, you might like it.

Thanks for putting this up in your sidebar; I had been hunting around for older post on your homestead project, but hadn't found it yet!
Perhaps I didn't look close enough to see the link in your other post before? Fun to see the start of all your hard work to save the place.

Wildside, no it wasn't you... I had to redo this post as somehow it lost a great deal of the original content and all of the comments.. strange!. Hope it is saved now.
