:: we've added a new member to our family- a young pup with a big personality. her name's dandy & she's the perfect friend for our sweet huck. we're still in the potty training stage so all of the rugs are tucked away in closets until she's fully trained. she's making big progress, though & our home feels much warmer with her in it.
:: framing prints & finding a place for everything in our home. unpacking the last of our boxes & settling in for the cooler months.
:: finding plenty of eggs in our coop after a bit of a break. just in time for sharing with friends & making delicious quiches from the last of our summer veggies. decorating the coop, too. with a bright & cheery banner.
:: pulling out the wool socks, hats & scarfs for this cooler temperature. enjoying the crunchy leaves & all of the colors so much during this beautiful autumn season.
:: harvesting the last of our summer veggies for sharing, freezing, drying & canning. this weekend i'm preserving pepper jelly!
:: a good mail week! jumped for joy when i found a big package full of candles from sweet amber of oakmoss. pure excitement here. licorice vanilla is my favorite.
:: planted our autumn garden - arugula, lettuce, salad greens, carrots, beets, radishes, turnips & so much more. a little late this year, but at least those seeds are in the ground!
:: beginning another knitting project. i'm loving the rhythm of knitting these days. having girls over for hot cider & red wine for an evening of knitting!
:: dreaming up handmade ideas for christmas gifts, which involves my dusty sewing machine. i better get to work! what are you dreaming up this holiday season?
:: almost a month until the little craft show. we've been working since june & i really can't believe it's almost here!
:: i really can't believe it, but we're leaving for california in less than a week! we'll be in san francisco for the first leg of the trip & then we'll road trip down to LA. any great spots i should know about? local food, thrift shops, quirky neighborhoods, delicious coffee? please do let me know!
