Falling for Fall


Can you believe September has come and gone already?

A couple of cute little witches to welcome us into October…


Layers of fall color and patterns--

And my new favorite toy:


Lovely, old sealing wax—I’ve always loved the style of it.  Love seeing it used in my favorite period films to seal a love letter…now giving a little texture to my projects.

And a bit of journaling to preserve a few found leaves…


Layers of iridescent of watercolor in autumn hues as background…a bit of torn patterned paper, a stamp or two…


…and some beautiful leaves found on a family drive up in the canyons of Utah last week while visiting my parents…


What a lovely way to remember a perfectly beautiful day with the ones I love…


And a beautiful quote from Emily Bronte—how perfect is this?  Just how I felt in the crisp, mountain air that afternoon—watching the bright, colorful leaves as they swirled down from the maple trees all around me…


Isn’t Mother Nature amazing?  This leaf really caught my eye—so much so that I just plucked it right off a willing tree.

Wishing you a beautiful autumn day……………………….
