Oh yes, I was referring to the PBS show in the 80s with Megan Follows as Anne, vs the Netflix reboot version of Anne, but I LOVE them both. Christmas has not come down, I got Teddy a week early, so it might be Christmas in April at my house with the way things are going, which I dont mind one bit. There are parts of my house that are Christmas all year round, such a Christmas cabinet :-) 3 3 ps: Thank you for liking my library corner 3

Chilly days bring many cozy nooks. They're not planned, but sort of evolve on their own. The only thing the prints and patterns in my home have in common, is that I like them. Over the years, I have learned,... Continue reading

I awoke to rain splashing on my window, and cold snowcapped mountains. Huge fluffy clouds filled the sky. I was busy most of the day, and decided to relax at the fire when afternoon rolled around. Just as I almost... Continue reading

Hello December, and hello friends! I finally got some baubles twinkling up my house, after being so crazy busy the last month. I got really busy a few days before Thanksgiving, and then it just never let up. Cooking, cooking,... Continue reading

Oh, beautiful November... When the garden puts on a last show, autumnal specimina make their way to the mantel, and arbors get gobbled by summer's vines. And finally, finally certain growing vines decide to bloom. The butterflies are still everywhere.... Continue reading

I've been having so much fun this October... Sparkling things up (truth be told, I began in September) and enjoying the twinkle lights. I made tulle pom-poms that are pretending to be ectoplasm on the tree. Then I hung a... Continue reading

thank you Mel! You should definitely try it, and I agree, you can't really ruin it. I bought a newer sander, and it is wonderful fun! So, if you make a mistake you can always paint over it again or just sand it ;-)

Thank you Marilyn. Well, I just sort of pull them apart a little and drop them right back into the garden beds. They almost always self-seed quite easily. In fact, if it's still too warm when I do that, they will start growing immediately. Plotting an planning for the seasons to come is a constant in the garden, perhaps that's why it's such a place of hope <3

Thank you Debi, my dad is doing well and I hope he continues to do so. Fairy light and pumpkin spice, music to my ears! hee hee. Funny enough, to me pumpkin spice is my own homemade concoction because I get quite nauseous from the fake pumpkin scent that some candles have, isn't that funny? Gosh, I'm so darn fickle sometimes, tee heee

I get what you mean Sarah, it's almost like we need everything to keep us close to the light and warmth this year. And while we love fall, any idea of being away from the light, just doesn't really feel right. At least, that is how I feel. I love it here in the land of sun, so I welcome dreary days and find them wonderful. But not too many please, because I am just like a moth myself. YAY for pumpkins everywhere! I love growing mine, but Mister Lovee just told me he'd pick me up some of the weirder ones as extras - which is music to my ears!!

Thank you Mel, for sending my dad well wishes. Oh yes, you must must try pumpkins next year. I plant my seeds rather early, and they know when to come up. I think I planted them in May this year, but sometimes even plant them in April. We do not get a surprise June frost or anything like that here, so they are safe. But they could always be covered with cloches if need be. Yay for no wild birds eatin' up the goods anymore ;-)
