Time Flies

Oh Monday. I have a busy day ahead, a morning stress test as part of me being a kidney donor (oh so many tests to complete) and then they are coming to fix our Direct TV so we get our TV service back. And they say more clouds. Maybe more rain. It rained hard yesterday but our weatherman said don't cancel your outdoor plans. Only a scattered shower.  Ha-ha. We had headed down to the boat but never made it onto the water or we would have been drenched. So much for the weatherman.
So here's my take on the old saying Time Flies. I am linking this page to  Art Journal Journey. The theme this month is Time.
I decided to make this a summery page to celebrate the fact that summer is still here, but since it is late August, summer days are winding slowly down. I love these sun glass die cuts, and they worked so well with the nautical Gelli printed background. The clouds are actually sparkly but you can't see that here. bad photo-sorry! And I added the 2 little girls since playful childhood also passes quickly. 
OK, so I am being too philosophical.  Stop me please!
So I want to share some more photos of some of the folk art and creative pieces I saw at the Shelburne Museum last week.
 How about this fabulous hooked rug.
 I love salt glazed crocks.  I have a few of my own, but certainly not as old or valuable as these.
This wood  carved eagle has a great look on face.
And then there's Mr. Grumpy pants.

This is a cool carved little display of maple sugaring. 

 Another cool weather wane.  I didn't know I liked weather vanes so much.
And a life sized carved wooden horse.
 This will be me Thursday when I go back to school-ha-ha! And finally, one more weather vane.
Hope your week starts off with lots of good things!

Not really scattered showers there yesterday, but it was okay, can always find something to make ourselves happy. Nice sunglasses, what a hoot. Good luck on your stress test! I am sure you will do so well, you are pretty relaxed...xox
