a lovely visit.......

Autumn is surely paying us a lovely visit.  The leaves are falling so beautiful and golden.  The breezes are crisp and cool.  The mornings are comfortable and quiet.  Autumn is certainly something special, don't you think.  Honey took this photo of our neighbor's steps before she cleared them away. Her yard is grand and beautiful with the loveliest flowers and trees with her weeping willow tree being my favorite. 

House in the leaves.:o)  This is one beautiful home.  Our neighborhood is full of history and beautiful old homes.  Our local nursery is celebrating its 100th birthday!  It seems that the autumn leaves give these old homes a fairy tale feel. 

Salon Bella as well as the other shops are all dressed up for Halloween.  When possible I must take a photo of all the shops in this block, they are amazing!

Love this little bench.  It sits right out front of Salon Bella.  I keep promising myself a lovely bench just like this one.:o)   The little orange lights in the trees are certainly a sweet touch.  Continue to enjoy a lovely autumn my friends.

roses, roses......

I am in the middle of filling my newest little Etsy shop sweetly called "Syrenity Rose".  I gave it a long hard thought and I am so happy I decided to go forward with it!  I hope to have it filled to the brim with beautiful flower jewelry quite soon.  If you love beautiful roses like I do, I think you will certainly enjoy Syrenity Rose.  Drop by and take a peek and tell me what you think.  By the way, you can click the collage above to make it larger.  Chat with you soon:o)

sweet little discoveries.....

Hello all!  Hope each of you are enjoying a lovely week.  For me, it is moving alone quite nicely I must say.  I spent the early part of the morning enjoying a sweet conversation with my daughter.  What a joy she is, so kind, full of wisdom and inspiration.  It seems as though it was just yesterday that I was braiding her hair; finishing just perfectly with those big ribbons I love to see her wear.  Now she is all grown up with a family of her own.  I see a lot of me in her, I also see a lot of her in me.  Love you dear daughter.

Have you ever spent a few hours simply browsing the web looking for something new and wonderful.  I found it to be a nice little break in the middle of the day and made some wonderful discoveries and certainly wanted to share them with you. :o)  I was simply in awe when I found this lovely website.  Elizabeth Patch, a lovely artist, teacher, motivator, author and more.  Her blog is indeed a very special place.  Through art and words she inspire women to love themselves beyond what they simply see on the outside. My visit with Elizabeth was a wonderful one for sure.  Though her art beautifully displays woman of size, it is my belief that no matter what your size you too will come away with a smile after spending a few moments there.

Jared over at Brooklyn Tweed is not new to me but his fabulous new yarn line sure is!:o)  Jared is an amazing knitwear designer and photographer.  Even if you have never picked up the needles, a visit to his site is a real treat!  The new yarn line is called "Shelter" a beautiful woolen-spun in seventeen beautiful colorways.  Oh and while you are there check out Jared's work and patterns, simply amazing!

Now if you love pretty, and what girl doesn't, you will love "nest pretty things"!   A true Etsy treasure!   I fell in love with this lovely shop the moment I laid eyes on it :o)  Tamar's beautiful jewelry will certainly bring a smile to your face.  She also has a sweet line of jewelry for the little ones.  Drop by and take a look, I promise you will be simply delighted.:o)

Beautiful wooden toys, I love them!  Check out these two wonderful artist!  The first is "Just Hatched", where you will find the most beautiful handmade puzzles and beautifully made wooden toys for kids, and grown ups too!:o)  I have my wish list in hand for this lovely shop, it is indeed something special.

Last but certainly not least is "happy squash toys", this beautiful shop certainly brought a smile to my face.  Some of the most beautiful handmade wooden pull toys I have ever seen and all so beautifully made. These beautiful wooden toys certainly brought back  memories of the wooden toys we played with as children.   Etsy never ceases to amaze me with the talented artist and crafts people that share there.  Well friends, I hope you enjoyed my sweet little discoveries.  Take care and enjoy a lovely rest of the week.

What a lovely Saturday afternoon we are having!  The weather is just lovely!  Beautiful blue skies, warm autumn breezes and a little toe that feels much much better:o)  I am so looking forward to spending time outdoors today.  I have a few chores that must be attended to, a few things to wrap-up in the studio and off I go.

Lying in bed a few days ago it came to mind...not many months from now it will have been four years of blogging.  Sharing here on my little blog has been and still is a very sweet part of my life.  I decided to share a few thoughts on that experience with you in the next coming few days.  In the meantime dear friends, enjoy a lovely Saturday and Sunday too, no matter what the weather:o)  Chat with you soon.

oh my.......

Hello all!  Hope each of you are enjoying a most beautiful week.   I spent the weekend in bed nursing a sore toe:o)  Well it all happened like this....on Thursday morning while sliding out of bed I twisted my toe just a little, I  mean no pain of any sort.  On Friday all seemed well but I did notice a little soreness, but nothing major.  But oh my goodness on Saturday afternoon I was in full blown misery!:o)  I thought I better stop all I was doing and rest it for a while.  Well here I am Tuesday and my little toe is just beginning to feel better.  Wow what happened!  Oh my goodness is it age or what!:o)  I am going to take the rest of the week easy and make sure I am careful with it.  Hmmm something tells me the golden ages will not be all golden:o)  Take care dear ones; chat with you soon.

week's end.....

Did you enjoy a lovely week and simply ready for a relaxing weekend.   Honey arose this morning with a big smile on his face "aah its Friday, the end of another work week".:o)  Do you have any special plans for this weekend, or do you, like Honey, simply plan to take it easy.  Whatever your plans, I wish you a long and beautiful weekend and a fabulous week to follow.  Take care dear friends.
