Fall Photos, Lily's Pond, Kancamagus Highway

One of my favorite pullovers on the Kancamagus Highway is Lily's Pond.  I hope someday I will spot a moose feeding in the pond area.

If you love Fall, I suggest you come to visit New Hampshire.

The Start Of Fall's Colorful Show On Kancamagus Highway, New Hampshire

Last weekend we were not sure what we would find taking a ride on the Kancamagus Highway.  The weather was overcast and we wondered would we find any color.  We were not disappointed, periodically the clouds lifted and the while not at peak our ride was beautiful!!!

Courting Candle Stick Holders

One my favorite hobbies are shopping at flea markets, garage sales and consignment shops.  My home I have decorated with my finds. I will post a few of my finds and how I decorate using items.  (I use to host decorating chats for AOL's home area, decorating is my first love, following photography)

My newest finds are two courting candle stick holders.  I did a research and found interesting history about my old candle stick holders.
History of Courting Candles - Wrought Iron Courting Candle Holder found at my favorite consignment shop The Etcetera Shoppe

In the 1600's to the 1800's, courting candles were used by the man of the home to set boundaries for his daughter. When the daughter's suitor came calling, the father lit the candle in a sitting room where the couple conversed.

Franklin, New Hampshire's Smoke Stack Tree Planter

The town Franklin, old factory buildings were converted into apartments.  On top of the building I spotted an old smoke stack,  I assumed is now used as a tree planter :).

I have ridden past for a few years and finally stopped to photograph.
