We have another fun weekend ahead. We'll be at the Passyunk Fall Fest at the Singing Fountain in South Philly. Put on by Nice Things Handmade, it's a great lineup of vendors selling handmade goods along with a fun community Halloween get together. L is excited to join the costume contest this year (there should really be a "Best Elsa" considering the amount of folks who have, I'm sure made that costume choice this year). I'm quite pleased with the way the dress turned out. I was having some doubts when I made the arms, they are not my forte, especially when they are in sequined mesh, but I persevered and succeeded with something that's half decent I'd say! L really liked it and has been singing "Let It Go" and dancing around the house ever since. I'll be there with my pinafore dresses and skirts and Mike has some great new necklaces and painted glass earrings to show off. We hope to see some of you!
On Sunday we'll be in the Woodlands Cemetery (one of our favorite places) for the 3rd Annual All Hallow's Read from noon to 4pm. It's a not too spooky book hunt where everyone exchanges (and hunts for) spooky and fall books to enjoy. Free for everyone, bring a book or not. Thought up by Neil Gaiman my friends organized one in our neighborhood. The Woodlands will also have some "local residents" of the cemetery there to tell you their stories and there will be Weckerly's Ice Cream. too. Disregard the date on the poster (although you could certainly give some books out trick or treating), it's just my favorite one.
I'm Wilder, mama, wife & Friend. We live in lovely West Philly, the smallest town in a big city. This blog is a little peek into the lives of we who make As the Crow Flies Jewelry & Kids, Wilder, Mike & L. To share some more of our life and ideas with you, so even if we’ve never met in person, you can get a sense of who we are as a family in this wide and wonderful world.
