Pictures of Seattle

Seattle home of Starbucks. I had to go the the original one across the street from the Public Market. I bought a coffee thermos and had them fill it full of coffee....yum. Now I feel like I belong in Seattle...everyone walks around with a cup of coffee.

Looking to buy a water home in Seattle. Lake front property is expensive but you can get this brown gem for a mere $300 thousand. It's one of the oldest water homes on the lake.

Beautiful lake front. I wonder whose house is next...can you tell I like looking at homes.

Oh, look it's Bill Gates home. Yes that's right. I don't think we can see all of it because of the hill it's built on. What wonderful lake frontage. I wonder who the neighbors are?

This is the aquarium. Our family loves looking at fish, eating fish, fishing...just about anything that has to do with fish.

These are just a few of the pictures we took in Seattle. We had a great time...Thank You Seattle!

A quick trip to Seattle

We took a quick 5 day trip to Seattle, Washington. What a beautiful area. This was my first time there. It is so different from Wisconsin but I loved it. I thought I would share some pictures.

This is the city of Seattle taken from the top of the Space Needle. If you look real close you can see Mount Rainer.

Go Brewers Go

Did you ever have one of those days when, at night you look back and think, that was a good day? Well today was one of those days for me. The sun was out the temp was about 65 degrees...this time of year in Wisconsin 65 feels like summer.

We started out the day going to the Brewers game. When I say we I mean my husband, son Jack and I. When we got to Miller Park the parking lot was full of tailgaters and the smell of brats on the grill. We met up with our older sons who were tailgating with some of their friends. They invited us to join them ...the beer was cold and brats were delicious! Thanks boys!

The Brewers were winners. The game was exciting...our pitcher had a no hitter going until the 5th inning, 2 home runs for the Brewers and the Italian won the sausage race.

The rest of the day was spent at Jack's baseball practice followed by the last indoor soccer game of the season and a pizza party after. They had my favorite pizza...baked potato pizza....thin crust pizza with potato, bacon, cheese and chives with sour cream on the side...yum.

The day is over and I thought I would write a little in my blog while everyone else is getting ready for bed. So as I think about the day, it was a good day, a fun day, a sunny day and a warm day spent with family and friends...what else could you ask for?

~*~ The Cat Jumped Over the Pumpkin Punch Needle Mini Picture~*~

~*~Scrap Happy Sunflower Pin~*~
~*~Pretty in Pink Raggedy Annie~*~

This is just the start

I never thought I would do something like this....but I am.

I think I will start off by telling a little about myself. I'm married and a stay at home mom of three boys. My oldest are twins that are 21 and my youngest is 9. Yes, I know this is a large gap...12 years to be exact. Jack was born after we bought a new house so when you hear the saying "new house new baby" it's true. LOL

I am a crafter with a love for sewing and painting. I have been crafting for many years but I have been selling my crafts at fairs for about 16 years. I just started a website, , shop on Ebay at, and shop on Etsy at . So if you are looking for me look for harvestmoonbythelake.

I would like to share recipes, thoughts, a little crafting, some pictures and a part of my everyday life.
