autumnal dreams.......

This feels wonderful!!  Hello all!  I hope each and everyone of you are enjoying a lovely week.  I certainly have missed meeting you here.  I thought of you often as I went busily about my work and hope you forgive me for such a long absence. 

Summer is coming to a close and beautiful autumn is making her presence.  Just a few days ago I shared with Honey just how much I am looking forward to our new season.  Autumn is such a lovely, gentle and quiet season.  I've been thinking of warm throws, hot chocolate, cookies right out of the oven, knitting and tea. :) The evenings are growing cooler with recent early mornings carrying a chill.  Out for a drive a few evenings ago and I found myself reaching for a light shawl...oh yes those little signs of autumn. :)

By the way, the lovely leaves above are from a book I purchased several years ago.  I wish I could show you the entire book, it is beautiful!  Its actually a book for those who love to collect leaves and have lovely pages of parchment for pressing leaves right in the book.   I found this beautiful book while browsing through the bargain book section at Barnes and Noble.  For you book lovers, don't you just love the bargain book section!  You can find some treasures there! I think I find myself spending more time there than any other part of the bookstore, I just love it! 

 The coming weeks will be busy ones for me, but I promise to make it back here soon. :o)  Take care dear friends.   Enjoy a lovely week!
