Here it is Friday! And only one full week left until school begins for the new school year! The intense heat has cooled (it will only be in the low 90s today! Where’s my sweater?!) and I’ve been enjoying some rather sweet treats that are helping me get into an autumn mood.
Although honestly, it’s not hard to fool myself that it’s October (aside from the heat) the lawns are already straw and the trees are getting brown and losing their leaves. Too bad its from too much heat stress! But it does make a girl get a bit confused….
I was inspired to get out my copy of Seasons at Seven Gates Farm, one of my favorite decorating books. Seriously, love it. My mom has a copy of it and I was borrowing it so much that I just bought one for myself. It is perfect for getting in the holiday mood, and also to get ideas for the coming spring.
I also treated myself to a new candle at Yankee Candle— Apple Pumpkin! Doesn’t that sound wonderful? I’ve already burned it a bit and it smells delicious. I love candles that smell like food, lol!
And speaking of apples, I received the cutest things in the mail from our friend Winnie the other day! She knitted up these apple cozies, so that Audrey could take an apple to school and it would be protected in her lunch box. Aren’t they just adorable?! Thanks so much, Winnie!~
And while I’m talking about unexpected treats, I also won this original drawing of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz from Theresa of Faerie Moon Creations the other day! Well, this is also Audrey’s, technically 😉 that little miss is raking in the treats, isn’t she? It’s a beautiful drawing! Theresa is a lady of many talents! Love the little hint of glitter on the rainbow as well.
Well, I hope you have a good weekend, and I’m sorry to be bombarding those of you who actually enjoy summer with my constant talk of autumn 😉 but it’s what gets me through this summer of shattered heat and fire records with my sanity intact 😉 I am also very focused on making the coming holiday months the best ever for Audrey Eclectic and want to make sure I’m prepared. I’ve been painting to Christmas music for months now! Yesterday I finally turned it to the Halloween channel on Pandora and have been painting some spooky little things. I hope you all enjoy what I have in store for you!~
Til next time,
