autumn appreciation week

sometimes i get caught up on 
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".

You know my love of flowers (and pumpkin)---what a clever idea and what fun the kids must have had painting and playing a part in the art work.
