Popping in here on this Friday afternoon with some new arrivals to share. First, autumn, it's in the air here in New England, here to stay. Sure there will be days of Indian summer, a final debate or two deciding if we should make it a beach day. But there is no real turning back. Sugar pumpkins have found their way into our home, the market is calling with it's abundant selection of mums and kale. Late summer bouquets become mostly green, offering a lush display of rue, rosemary, and sage. I suppose I should consider this next year and plant some late blooming perennials, though our very shady property has a hard time producing flowers. I'm actually partial to this abundance of green right now as we turn the tide and prepare to hibernate.
Another sweet arrival? My scrap swap package arrived yesterday! The lovely Grace, of the ever so darling Uncommon Grace, was my partner. We were both pretty excited to be matched up with someone we each "knew." You completely out did yourself Grace, thank you! I hadn't thought about this aspect of the swap but I have thoroughly enjoyed looking through the pile you sent me and recalling the projects you've shared in photos on your blog in which these were used. I really appreciate that connection. Your package will be on it's way shortly, thank you again. Would you all care to take look? I thought so...
Elle, Grace's daughter was quite instrumental in the selection and careful folding of this fabulous stack.
There are some serious favorites in here for sure.
Love the blue and white polka dot with pink roses, yummy!
As I descended through the pile to photograph them, I noticed you color grouped them! The details of such a crafty lady have not gone unnoticed here. ;) I can't wait to see as the rest of you begin sharing your Scrap Swap loot! Such fun.
Oh... Elle, I want you to know that as per your request, I will definitely enjoy whatever it is I make. Thank you sweetie.
I love new arrivals, and autumn. It is the reason I can't imagine living in any other part of the country. Autumn in New England is hard to beat. We went for a little hike earlier today and noticed the leaves beginning to crunch beneath our feet, it's almost here. Enjoy your weekend everyone, I'm thinking of baking molasses cookies, maybe a spice cake. I wonder if there will be any cider at the Farmer's Market...
