Well, I know we have at least one week before September, but I just couldn't wait. I bought this glorious cat and pumpkin with birthday money at Randolph Mercantile, THE most beautiful store for this kind of stuff.... and I was trying to wait.. Honestly I was doing a fair job. Then I went to a
scrapbooking party at a dear friend's house, and she.. uh.. she hadn't waited. Her wreaths were autumnal; her statues in the hall were rather pilgrimmy, her floral decor had shifted to the beautiful tones of my favorite time of the year... She said her husband told her she was a bit premature, but I decided... hey, I'll join her and we won't be too early, we'll be progressive. After all, if it's in the stores, it's fair game??? The painting above this vignette is a Will Moses print I bought for my mother, and the doll is going to get a mask if I can find one that size.... at least a treat bucket! The lamp is one my parents bought at an auction together, and by day it's a deep cranberry red At night with the lights off and incandescent bulbs inside, it glows a cheerful burnt orange... De---lightful. Stay tuned. More to come.... I tell you this. Autumn is my fav-o-rite season of them all...... Hugs for a good week.
