Autumn + Tea + Books

Won't you join me for tea in the garden?

A special treat for an "everyday" sort of day.

Everything has a story hidden somewhere inside, glinting with the light of mystery...

Books for inspiration...

 Here is a cozy trivet I made for my Aunt. She took us to a Fiber Fair and I bought some beautiful dyed wool to felt. I used a bright wooly orange for her gift. (and some sparkly yarn, because I couldn't resist, and because I thought it gave it a whimsical quality.) Thank you Aunt J!  ♥

 It was my first attempt with this type of "fiber painting"- if you will... 
It was very fun and a bit difficult to make look right. But I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. Maybe I'll do a winter one next time...

 It was a lovely day... one of the last warm days of October.

Not long after this we got 8 inches of Snow! It was a bit of a rude awakening to Winter! But wonderful too! It was so beautiful! It's mostly melted now, and we are busily preparing for Thanksgiving and you-know-what after!

I hope you all are having a lovely day!
We will be baking and adding the last finishing touches to the house today! I am so excited for one of my most favorite holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
