September 2017 Color of the Month!

September! Wow. I’m working on embracing that early fall feeling, although it is STILL summer folks! Mornings are starting to get a bit chilly on the new side patio, but we are spending lots of time there. We have also been planting some new fall blooming friends like mums, asters, hyssop, and some spring bulbs. Plus, I’m harvesting garden goodies and making sauces, chopping, and freezing for what we are now calling “the off season”, ahem..aka..winter. As usual, I’m having a hard time wrapping my brain around the garden going to sleep, but Stephan assures me that time outside will still be fun with activities like igloo building. Looks like I’ll have to up my outdoor winter wardrobe! So with that, color of the month! Aqua, in honor of our wedding brunch theme and 1st anniversary!
Fave vintage: aqua plastic butter dish, milk glass coffee mugs, cute lady brush, aqua topped aluminum shakers, Regaline plastic bowl, anchored on a napkin. Mugs available in the vintage shop, the other items are from my personal collection.

Color of the Month October 2015!

October. My all time favorite seasons are coming to an end and the busy season is starting up and the chill is beginning to edge in a bit. Honestly, this time of year always makes me feel a little blue as gardens wane and leaves fall. There’s nothing like the growth,green, flowers, color, sunshine, and warm fresh air of spring and summer to feed my soul and make me feel whole. I’m still taking advantage of those beautiful days outside, even though I slipped into a pair of boots for the first time last week, NO! You know how much I hate socks and wish I could just run around barefoot in flip flops all year long! It’s a season of change, and this year I’m seeing some extra things happen around me with the people I love. Some wonderful things are happening that are exciting and then there are some things happening that are hard and are just breaking my heart as their season brings big change. Life, like the natural world, has so many seasons. And so, color of the month October 2015 seems ever so fitting as blue.
