Happy Autumnal Equinox


(my photo, BHG photo & picture of Paulette's quilt from my retreat)

I'm ignoring that today is 96 degrees and I'm focusing on the fact that tonight will be 53.
My favorite time of year has arrived!
Open up the paint box and get ready!
Nature's beautiful fall range of color is just around the corner.



Another friend of the season is rain.
Time to get out the umbrellas!
Oh, what do the English call them???
Is it bumbershoots???

(did you know Moda Home sells these)

The one thing I saw on my blog travels this week, that I completely loved, was
an umbrella made by Emily at Crazy Old Ladies!

This was made from her Going Coastal line of fabrics/laminated!
Don't you love it?
I think I might just have to give this a try!
Bring on the rain!
I had wanted to plan a giveaway for today...
but I just didn't get it together in time.
So, here is your "heads up"...
one is on the autumn horizon soon!
Have a great weekend!
