OK Momma Nature... Can we Talk?

"An inch of snow fell last night.  As I was sound asleep, I really didn't have to lay eyes on it. Thankfully it was all melted by morning.  Still you torment me with freezing temps tonight and I have a beautiful red mum in the garden that is just starting to bloom.  So I guess I will  have to throw a blanket over it."

"Yes Mom Nature... have you seen the Fall... as in AUTUMN colors that are filling my studio!!?  Not white or red or green!"  

"Black cats and...

spooky stuff....

Orange, gold and okay maybe a white Jack-O Lantern or two.
But that doesn't give you the go ahead to go cool off our Fall fun with the white stuff!

Now that I've ranted... and I'm sure you've listened up Mom nature!
 A little more Autumn if you please!!"

Tomorrow one of the  fur boys and I are going to a new groomers!
She happens to be a good friend of mine. 
And wait til you see her home and grooming salon!
Oh... and did I mention she is an AVID collector of HALLOWEEN!  
Yes I took photos last time I was there.
Tomorrow I hope to take a few more as the first time I spent so much time ogling and relishing the moment that my photos weren't that great.
Here is her front porch for a teaser!

You are in for a treat!  Yup!  As in Trick-or Treat!!

  4. OMgosh, visiting your blog is like a drinking a good bottle of fine wine. I'm getting overload on all the beautiful things you've been getting ready for your Fall studio.
    Mother Nature got herself all mixed up again. Maybe she got drunk while looking in your window at all the pretty things. I'm glad it all melted by the time you woke up. Can you imagine. Scary stuff...

    Your groomer's place looks fantastic and I love that gate and her mums and stuff. Hope the snow hold off for much longer.

  5. This blog warmed my senses in Fall color. Love it.

  6. Well I think pictures of your place are pretty heartwarming. I love all of your wool goodies. They all make me happy. Wow!!! One inch of snow!!
    I would be having quit a talk, I think we need to stage an intervention with Old Mother nature anyway, we are having a 97 degree day, so whatcha think? :) I can't wait to see more photos.

  7. Very warm and inviting your studio looks....the little wool acorn table mat is so cute, one of yours?
