Time for coffee by candlelight once more.
A morning ritual that helps me set the day's tone,
and bypass troubles for a wee bit.
In the past you would find witches and goblins
galore scattered throughout the downstairs, but
they are all bewitching someone else-somewhere else,
since the "last great purges".
I now prefer a simple palette with a
whisper of fall here and there.
I found brown bottle brush wreaths
which will carry over onto the brown porch
Holiday design where the brown paper tree resides.
Isn't it wonderful that we can find the
vintage look now without the $$$
I am no snob.
If it looks the way I like, then good enough,
and it'll be vintage when my kids get it.
My only nod to the 31st.
We made these in a class I taught many
full moons ago and I just love the little bugger.
It is wee.
So it stays
I tend to doodle while phone chatting...
I also do laundry, dishes, sweep, pay bills etc.
Z is nothing if not a multi-tasker.
So last week on a long chat to Annie,
I doodled this, and yes it does look like a third
grader did it.
I also doodled over here, and hung my fall calendar.
A nod to our sweet Libbey, the two felt cockers
that are homage to Justice and Howie,
two precious notes from my kids,
my favorite fortune cookie fortune
and of course...
"Don't Make Me Get My Flying Monkeys"
SO I guess there is still a witch around.....
or a _itch around, cause this gal needs sleep.
and yes the coffee is half caff
Check out Hannah's progress up there right hand corner.
We're so proud of her.
