Fiery Sunset

This doesn't even look real to me, but it was there, right outside the window.

This photo is untouched, as is, direct from camera.

Deepwood Estate Antiques Faire

On Sunday afternoon we attended the Deepwood Estate Antiques Faire.

Compared to other antique fairs that we've attended this year, this one was small, but there was still plenty to look at and enjoy.

There were more pictures to take, but I got so caught up in the looking that I only took a few.

Shabby chic is still in.....

And aprons....they are everwhere thse days. Kind of cool to see them making such a come back.

This was my Sunday photo, but the aprons are so cute that I thought the picture beared repeating. I didn't buy one. I didn't even look at the prices. I was too busy snapping pictures. I did look at a few of the vintage aprons and almost bought one of those, but then I decided against it. Once I got home and looked through my pictures I wished I had checked the price on that little red number at the front. Love the style.

There was also a small car show at the event. These were serious vintage vehicles, quite a bit older than the usual 'Cruise-In' style. It's fantastic to see people fixing up these old cars, which are a big part of early vehicle history.

What was especially neat to me is that being a smaller venue these cars weren't roped off. Nor were they so crammed in that people couldn't get up close and personal.

International Day of Peace

Today, Sept. 21, is International Peace Day.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to see it extend beyond just one day?

Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.” ~ John F. Kennedy

"Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained. It is the product of Faith, Strength, Energy, Will, Sympathy, Justice, Imagination, and the triumph of principle. It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism."

“Peace is not something you wish for; It's something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”

“If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.”

"One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means." ~ Martin Luther King Jr.
