I am loving this new color scheme for my Blog. Very Halloween-y. I'll change it after Oct. 31st!


No great shakes here, at home or in the studio. Well, that's not entirely true-I've added some Autumn goodies to the shop, some have already been posted here, but here's photos of the latest:

I'm still lagging on the Autumn decorating. I wonder what my problem is? Need some inspiration. Think I'll hole up in the bedroom and flip thru some decorating magazines for ideas. My favorites are Country Living, Country Sampler, and Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. Always good ideas and great photos.

YAY!!!! It's Official-The First Day of Autumn. In case there's any doubt in your mind, I LOVE AUTUMN!!! The cooler air, the gorgeous colors... Pumpkins, Pumpkins, and, ohmygod, more Pumpkins! I love words like... Harvest... Gather... Bountiful... Abundance. I love colors like ... ochre... burnt orange... paprika... sage... copper...amber... cinnabar (love that name!) The crispness in the air is so energizing to me, I wish it could be like this all year.
Happy Fall! Go out and Gather your Bountiful
and Abundant Harvest!!
