Days Of Summer Have Ended








As the leaves continue to fall and the trees have started to take on a sparse look in our area... the days of summer have ended... We enjoyed many days in the pool and consuming fine foods and attended several black tie events consisting of weddings and anniversaries.. All to become additions to our memories... There were many happy times and some a few sad times as we lost friends dear to us...
Now my mind has started to journey toward the holidays.... I am starting to view tidbits of Christmas on other blogs and in magazines on book stands... Jeanne d Ark has a Christmas special addition that I just ordered and anxiously await seeing for added inspiration... I am thinking I would like to sketch out a pattern for some socks to cut from yet another grain sack to be hung on my fireplace mantle for different eye candy this year.... I need to soak in the inspiration and possibly a trip to the antique store to search for rhinestone brooches for a project I want to do that I shared with you on a earlier post completed on a small bottle brush tree and tucked in a glass cloche.... The above pics were from Country living.... Wishes sent your ways for a lovely day...

Dear Marietta,
I have missed you and your wonderful posts. It is so nice to be back...
I too have been thinking of Christmas while also enjoying these lovely autumn days. I like to sew a few ornaments in the evening while watching tv or listening to music. I am making a few heart shaped stuffed ornaments out of pretty rosey pink fabric that I will add lace and buttons to ~ pretty on the tree (I hope) or to add to packages.
I have seen bits from the Jeanne d Ark Christmas issue ~ so lovely and peaceful.
Hope your day is wonderful ~
Hugs))
