Blackbirds... Crows... Pumpkins...


When cool air and damp clouds hover...
I want to paint everything honey brown or cinnamon red!

I spent part of the weekend soaking, washing, scrubbing
old linens and fabrics~ stain-free, crisply ironed and bright.
I sat down with six of the linens to draw
crows and pumpkins...


The linens got dirty again!
(giggle)
They just didn't look right all pressed and pretty!


My hands smell like coffee...
The house smells like coffee...
At least a few times a year!
It smells so delicious~
 We keep a jar in the house for our coffee-drinkin' friends...
When the jar expires it becomes a natural stain!

Hope your day is warm and cozy~

Michelle...You have once again captured the out-of-doors perfectly in your drawings. And what could be better than pairing them with antique linens...lovely!

Try to stay high, dry, and safe from the neverending raindrops my friend...

Sunshine hugs,
