Oh, Autumn.

I apologize if you guys are getting sick of these photos. It’s such a fleeting season that I never really get tired of them. I feel like you really can take too many pictures of flowers, but turning leaves? It’d take a swallowing sea of them for me to grow weary of their beauty.

How was your weekend?

30 Days of Happiness : Just Snippets

30 Days of Happiness : Just Snippets
The past couple days have been so busy it was nice to have a break today and just relax. Did laundry, ate a yummy lunch, sewed a bit and took a nap. I also noticed the dogwood is the quickest turning tree around here. It’s looks so beautiful in the afternoon sun.

Finally getting a chance to wear the Simple slippers I got on sale way back when, when it was too warm for them. Now they are keeping my toes toasty on these early autumn days. (I know that technically it’s still summer, late summer to be exact, but it just feels like autumn already. And I’m always so excited and can’t wait for this season to arrive, I probably jump the gun a bit.)

But I’m still hanging clothes out to dry.

Now I know I’ve posted so many photos of my pets since starting this Happiness Journey, but they are going to creep into this post as well. All the animals around here are such a wealth of joy, not only to me, but everyone.

I’m not sure I’ve officially introduced you to our dog, Kippy. She’s a sweetheart. A little neurotic but still sweet. She’ll be 11 in November but acts like a puppy. (You can also see another pair of my Simple Shoes in that photo. What can I say? They make great shoes. I really want these.)

I snapped this photo of a yawning Pansy yesterday.

Tonight I’m contemplating going to a neighbors bonfire. They are lighting pine trees, apparently they burn beautifully.

Winter in the air…

Things have been quiet around here lately. There has been a lot going on in my life so blogging has been shifted to the back burner. I have plans for some new tutorials to share but not for a little while. I’m still sewing, of course, and will share photos of completed projects and shop updates as soon as I get a chance. As well as get around to visiting other blogs.

The days are getting shorter and shorter and I can smell winter in the air. So I was surprised to find this sweetgum tree still holding it’s own–and quite beautifully too. (Don’t let the warmth of the photo fool, it was cold!) The end of the year is approaching quickly–I’m not sure where it went. This means the yule season will be upon us soon. I have no ideas about presents–to either make or buy. I’ve been browsing around Etsy quite a bit for inspiration and ideas.
I’m planning a sale in my own shop to kick off the holiday shopping season. So stay tuned.

This is our dog Kippy. She turned 10 on Monday. She looks awfully sad in the photo, but in truth she is just terribly camera shy. I’m not sure if other dogs are like that or not, but she never looks you in the eye. I still have this habit of calling her puppy because, although she’s speckled with gray and not fast as she used to be, she is still so playful and enthusiastic. Though, she is slipping a bit on her guard dog duties. The other night she totally missed the the doe I heard munching on the bushes outside my bedroom window.
