Hello friends.  We are enjoying Indian Summer here in Western New York State!  Warm temps during the day, cool at night.  The chestnut trees in our front yard are dropping chestnuts now, so the squirrels are hiding them by day, and the deer are visiting at night to feast on them.  Nine deer stood on our front lawn last night!

I purchased a couple of stamps from Whimsy Stamps and they arrived this week.  I could not wait to ink up this adorable Lion in the Santa hat.

It's a Chrissy Armstrong Design

Isn't this lion just adorable...I saw him on FB the other day. Love what you have done with him! We are having some lovely weather at the moment too. No chestnuts here but acorns everywhere...don't think I have ever seen so many. With lots of acorns come the bears of course. I haven't seen any in the yard but they have left proof of their presence! LOL
Hugs, Renee
