Crisp Autumn Days

Autumn... apples, mums, asters, cool days, warm nights, apple cider, apple pie,
soups, time with family, more time to create, more time to breathe.
Say Hello to my little stone froggie... he love flowers. :)
And he makes me smile every single time I see him... priceless.
Decorations that sit on my old, old trunk.. This trunk is one of my special treasures, found an estate sale of a wonderful woman who dedicated her days to teaching and encouraging youth... this truck is at least 100 years old and has the travel tags to prove it.
My silly husband accidentally locked the trunk one day... unfortunately the keys were (and still are) residing within....
A simple floral arrangement made last night. My table needed it! Isn't it wonderful how a quick journey to a craft store and a few misc. items can make a table happy? Now to finish the runner...

Finally a project made with fabric, paper and glue ~ some of my very favorite things. This photo was actually taken by my husband, but it speaks to my soul.... sometimes you must be brave and strong and walk forward on your own.
Wishing you a beautiful and prosperous day ~ Smiles from the heart ~ Brandi
