Welcome Autumn, I've missed you so!

It seems we blink and POOF! Summer is gone and fall has arrived!
The years are passing too quickly for my taste but
I've heard that as you get older, this is just how it is.

I love it when the shadows start getting longer in the afternoon and
when the sky is that amazing, vibrant blue!

I have many posts on my blog praising the fall of the year because
so many wonderful things have happened in my life at this time of year.

I wanted to share some of my most favorite images with you too!

These last two photos are from when we visited my parents a few years ago.
They live in the North Georgia mountains in Hiawassee, Georgia.

The photograph below was taken standing on their deck...THEIR DECK!'s so beautiful there in the fall!!!

This one was taken during that visit as the mountains.
The colors were so beautiful!!!

Our precious grandson turned FOUR this past month!!!
I mean it about the time y'all, it's flying by WAAAY too fast!
Here a just a few photos from his party,
he had such a wonderful day!

Goodness gracious!!! Look at how big they both are!!!
Sweet babies...

I just finished up a wholesale order for a dear friend who
will be selling at The Country Living Fair in a few weeks in Atlanta!!!

She ordered a few lavender sachets and I found the most beautiful graphics
to print onto fabric for her! The order is complete and on it's way to her...
goodness I so hope they sell well!!!!

I'm trying to list things daily in my shop. Neat things, old things...amazing things!!!

It's time my friends...time to LET GO OF THE WONDERFUL!!!'s the deal.
I'm going through my amazing hoard...and listing TONS of stuff!!!
It's really time.
I've not been very creative lately but have SO many wonderful things!
Why not pass my found treasures on to another artist???

This is just a FRACTION of my hoard so stay tuned my precious friends!!!

What else have I been up to?
Hmmmm, let's see.
My precious mother-in-law had a birthday SO
I wanted to make a wonderful gift basket for her!!!
Bedroom shoes to keep her feet cozy,
a fuzzy throw to keep her warm this winter,
hand wash and hand lotion,
yummy smelling soap,
the most wonderful smelling candle,
a coffee mug and since she loves wearing silver,
a container of silver jewelry cleaner!

ALSO...I've been working on some wonderful lavender sachets!
They are for a precious friend of mine that will be a vendor
in the Country Living Fair here in Atlanta!!!
My little handmades will be sold there!!!
Finishing them up this week for her.

And so it goes, this simple life of mine.

These truly are the good ol' days!

Seems the older I get the more I realize
that the here and now,
the gatherings with loved ones and
the moments we all share together,
truly are times that should be treasured!
We need to cherish each and every moment
with our family and friends.

I found this gorgeous old painting the other day
and knew you would love it!
Artist: Sir John Everett Milais

It's been a while since I've received a gift in the mail but
last week, a box was delivered to my door and I was totally surprised!

Months ago a blog friend/reader emailed me wanting my address
that she was de-stashing and cleaning out everything and would
I like a few of her old laces and things. Why, OF COURSE!!!

I had forgotten all about this and when I opened the package,
I could not believe the beautiful gifts tucked inside!!!

The gorgeous embroidered net lace at the top center of the photo below
was her pram cover when she was a baby!!!

She told me she had no one to leave these things to and
knew I would appreciate it all.

Dear sweet Gina, I love it ALL!!! I've displayed the pram cover
in my studio, hung up the baby dress and I can enjoy them
each and every day! Thank you for your precious gifts, I'm so very honored!

And speaking of precious times with friends and family,
last weekend we had the most fun
at my son David and Heather's gender reveal party!!!
They are expecting a little boy!!!
His precious name is going to be Owen,
I cried the minute they told us that.
Another dear grandson!!!
She's due January 7th and it seems like the time is whizzing by!

Thank you always for stopping by to see what I'm up to!!!

Hugs and love,
