Colors Are Changing

Bayley and Marlee got a much-needed bath today.  They do not like scrub-ups :/ but the temps were in the mid-70's today and perfect for puppy baths.  Bathing them is a lot like a chore.  So glad it's out of the way for a little while, anyway.

The leaves are finally taking on their gorgeous hues.  I was so afraid they were just going to turn brown and fall off, but no, the hills are alive with color and I am loving it.  :)  My mums are beautiful, and bring a smile every time I glance out the window.  On days like today, their fragrance drifts on the breeze and they hum with bees getting drunk off of their nectar.  We had our first hard freeze last Saturday morning, so these are the only flowers left blooming.  The cotoneaster is full of red berries, and the barberry is dressed in lovely colors.  My favorite time of the year...

Happy October

This is a  little wallhanging that I made for my friend's birthday.  Her birthday is Sunday, and although there are tons of other seasonal things I would love to make for her, I always seem to end up with a pumpkin---just because it's AUTUMN LOL.  I used the folded square triangles to hang it and stuck in a goldenrod stick as the hanger.
