Thinking of Autumn

I am thinking of cool crisp breezes...no humidity...a nice sweater and my cozy socks..pumpkins in all shapes and sizes...hay bales...Indian corn...a evening walk with a chill in the air...makes one feel so alive...so inspired...wonderful scents...pumpkin spice...cloves...a fire in the hearth...a good book,,,and fresh bittersweet...the berries just turning red...I love pomegranates and crisp juicy MacIntosh apples...candy apples and caramel apples. I am NOT a fan of Summer...I was born in July...I wish it had been September. I love the color changes in the oak and maple leaves...the fall foliage is BREATHTAKING here in Tennessee. I want to start creating for fall and decorating my favorite room for Autumn  to share with you...CELEBRATE  AUTUMN!!! Is anyone else ready????

Early American Life Entry* Christmas 2011

A peek at my entry for the Early American Life Holiday Directory

This is the first time that I have entered the Holiday Directory for Early American Life magazine. I did a "St. Nicholas" with a "mouse" helper and companion and a lovely rag doll that some lucky little girl will receive for Christmas! I started with a doll dated to the early part of 1900..restored it and added a very detailed head. His suit is handsewn from 19th. Century homespun wool and lined with early chocolate brown "book muslin" ( used in the 1800's for skirt linings) and trimmed it in early turkey red and brown calico. There is so much detail that it would take way too long to describe...BUT...I thought that some of you who love Holiday folk art, might appreciate a little peek! He will be offered for sale at some point. I do hope you enjoy him!!!
