~ October Begins ~

 Hello Friends and Folk!
a very happy October 1st to you all ~
the leaves are falling outside my sewing room window as I type...
as a hot breeze seems to be blowing away the last remnants of Summer.

... this is such a strange time of year ~ 
caught somewhere between Summer days
and Autumn nights!

before I begin my day today I though I would take you along with me on a short walk 
around the farmyard and shop garden...

~ side by side ~

 i love the tiny amount of purple in these glory's....

a pebbled pathway in a tired garden ~

although dying,
their beauty never fades in my eyes,...

red gazing ball and my little witch
grace the front of the Studio ~

morning glory's of every size and color are blooming now,
always reaching for the last few shafts of sunshine...

my beautiful Beauty Berries ~
a shoot was given to us from our dear friends Jane & Steve ❤

Roxy & her 'nephew' Big...enjoying a morning kiss ~

a cauldron of mums...
a gift from dear friend Nancy Z ♥

 old gourds in our soapstone icebox;

 the perfect pumpkin ~
a gift from my sweet friend Becky ❤

 best friends, Bobby & Roosty:
enjoying their breakfast...

the banana trees that Peter loves so much are huge this year!


I'll be stitching up a small Christmas Ornament today,
to be revealed later on, 
for an upcoming 
Make-It Take-It class to be announced ~

and I will leave you with a favorite quote ~

the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves.
