October’s changing magic upon my garden falls
With lacy, leafy patterns against the rough
I can smell the leaves in the hedgerow,
And chrysanthemums spice the air –
Fragrance of apple orchards and seed pods everywhere.
There’s a lengthening of darkness
Like a blanket that covers all,
For October, fickle maiden, is ushering in the fall!

I made a fall banner for this fireplace mantel this week. Oddly I’ve never made a banner before! It was so much fun choosing the different papers and embellishments and it was a pretty quick project as projects go.

Hi, found your blog by accident. It’s wonderful! In your about me description, you described yourself exactly as I describe myself. I have my hands into just about everything as you do. I love all your photos on your blog. Your curtains are very nice, well done. I did start a blog, however; I get so busy that I just don’t find the time I need to keep up with it. Have a great one!
