the fact that summer is over
and i don't appreciate fall
as much as i really should. i
decided i would embrace the
seasonal change now, and bask in the beauty of autumn.
it is a glorious time to focus
on the finer points of domestic
loveliness. baking, sewing
and home making always
seem so much more special
in the fall. so of course i was
thrilled when danny picked
out a selection of the last blooms from the garden, including but not limited to dahlias, marigolds, nasturtiums, hasta leaves, fennel flowers and mint.
i really loved hanging up this fun little collaborative project painted by phia and ori. i let them go crazy with some orange paint yesterday. after their artwork dried i cut out little pumpkins, and phia and i arranged and glued them down. she has spent a substantial amount of time counting the pumpkins, deciding which ones are the baby pumpkins, and came up with the title "thirty little pumpkins".
