One blustery day was all it took to shake the leaves (& a few small persimmons) from my favorite tree on our property. The dogs & I were out hiking around & there were a million tiny, delicate lawn mushrooms. The tree outside of my kitchen herb window is just starting to turn; it's always the last, but puts on quite a show.

Inside the house isn't nearly as lovely as outside; its all clutter & cleaning projects that make me wince ... like my carpet needs a serious cleaning. Ah, the joy of owning three large dogs & living out in the country without the blessing that would be hard wood floors. There is too much to do to prepare for the holiday & I haven't got enough hands to juggle it all.
There has been good thrifting lately & a wonderful yard sale I stumbled onto while driving home from grocery shopping yesterday afternoon. I found some lovely dinner plates & a large stoneware platter for a quarter apiece.
|I love all three ... they may end up hanging out for a while|
|Brown paper packages tied up with strings ...|
I ordered some tiny plastic trinkets from High Pie to spruce up my Etsy packages. Tiny sparrows & roosters of all different colors & some multicolored wee Matryoshkas too. So sweet! I like the bit of whimsy they add to my shipments, I hope my customers enjoy them!
