It's a day for reading, on a random scan of the local library biography section, I didn't dare hope to find the story of Beatrix Potter (I am a bit obsessed with all things Beatrix Potter at the moment).... but there it was, a book all about her life obviously waiting for me take it home!
Other books in the picture are this lovely Countrywoman's Journal - I love the illustrations... and Creating the French Look - just published with the most fabulous home styling.
The material for the kimono I am
I can't remember if I showed you Amber's picture, she is growing a thicker coat, lots of white is appearing - she's going to be a snow cat - I think we are in for a cold winter.
My blog has been a little quiet - I hope to be more chatty soon. It's difficult to be interesting and creative all the time and it's good to have a little temporary pause, to savour the moment, enjoy the beautiful Autumn we are in and to take stock of life and all that makes the world go round. In particular I have an urgent compulsion to collect conkers, pine cones and interesting stones - I have no idea what for! to choose and plant a beautiful climbing rose for my front porch - I may not be able to have the country cottage but maybe I can make it feel like one with big fluffy scented roses round the door... I hope to make some time to paint autumn leaves on silk before they all disappear into cobwebby skeletons under foot.
I am going to do a thought for the month on my blog - for October it's this one,
I will try to keep it in mind and use it.
Thankyou for stopping by and welcome to recent new followers. Bettyx
