Yesterday…Christmas Bazaar

I went to the Christmas Bazaar at the hospital with my daughter.  It was a lot of fun.  Lots of beautiful things and some Vera Bradley bags and totes that were really tempting.  I could not make myself part with $100 or more for one.  I did find this adorable Christmas outfit for my great great niece. 

Guessing at the size was not easy as I have never seen her before. I think that they will be coming to visit me this week. I am looking forward to that.


In one of the hospital parking lots I saw this gorgeous rose bush.  I guess one might think this is summer’s last hurrah.


Then on the way home we stopped at the high school so that I could take a pic of a beautiful tree still in full color with all of its leaves.


The tree below is in my daughter’s back yard.


and the last pic is of the tree across the street from my daughter and son in law’s house.


I was really amazed that after the big rain that we had on Thursday that some of the leaves are still hanging on and the colors are so pretty.

That is part of my picture taking over the weekend.  Do stay safe and be happy!



  1. Getting out at a church bazaar was a lot of fun, I imagine. That is a pretty outfit for your G-Niece. You needed the shopping after what you've been through. I do hope you're feeling better and your BP is leveling out. The roses sure are hanging in there and looking pretty. I love the full orange colored tree so unlike the skinny young ones ones we have here in the complex.

  2. OH they are absolutely stunningly gorgeous! I am amazed at the scarlet of those leaves. I got no fall colors except one branch this year. Nothing stood out as yours are doing.

    I think you had a long overdue great time yesterday. Makes me wanna do a happy dance. xoxoxo

  3. Cute outfit. Your photos are beautiful. Feels like a Fall day today here.

  4. Cute outfit! I hope it fits. :)

    I have to say that blazing red tree is just stunning! They are my very favorites. The roses are clinging to summer and look lovely.

    I could never spend $100 on a bag, either--LOL! Hope you have a great week! :):)

  5. Enjoy the season, Beth. I'm sure that little girl will love that outfit. From BG

  6. Hi Beth,

    Great pics, love the different coloured trees.

    Hope your week is a good one.

    Hugs Nita.

  7. That outfit is adorable. She'll love it. Those trees are just gorgeous. Won't be long and the trees will be so bare and that bad stuff will be all over the place.

  8. Dear Beth Marie, My roses are just about to sleep the winter long and will be cutting them back sometime this week. As ever be well

  9. Vera bradley is so expensive, but I just love her stuff! Incredible how that rose bush is still blooming...It must be extra sunny in that spot.
    Blessings, Joanne

  10. Cute outfit! Gorgeous colors of trees and you are
    back to happy lady which I am very happy for you.
    Enjoy happy week ahead!

  11. Hello Beth Marie!
    What wonderful pictures, they are the right autumn colors.
    Wish you a nice week!
    Take care

  12. Snow here has made it clear that fall is done and done. I love your pictures of the trees and flowers. I think that is what I miss most over the long cold winter season. We are doing our best to pick up the excitement of the holidays to ease the pain. Have a wonderful day my friend.

  13. Rained here again today...losing the last of the colors...loved that scarlet tree!

    I love bazaars and all that stuff...glad it's coming on Christmas--we'll see a lot of 'em.

    Glad you're feeling better!!

  14. What a cute little outfit, I bet she looks a picture in it. lucky girl having a generous and kind Great Aunt, I've got to think of something for my great grandson's birthday later this month, he'll be three, time flies.
    The trees are beautiful, IMO Autumn gives us these beautiful colours to warm our hearts before winter's chill takes over. Bye for now. XXX hope you are feeling better.

  15. The outfit is so cute!!

    Oh yes I love those bags but man I can't spend it either.
