Lovely Things #10

Hey hey. Here we go with a new LOVELY THINGS roundup of nice things that have caught my eye lately. I’m coming up short with a common thread besides compatible hues and nesting. Mostly I think this is my last soft tones hurrah before sinking into the dark, moody autumn that will be filling me up until we get into late January and February when all thoughts will turn to the deep yearning for brightness and silky spring petals. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

Friday!

HAPPY FALL! I turned on the heat for the first time yesterday and nature has finally brought us some heavy rains in the NW. Fall will always be my favorite, but it is a bittersweet farewell to roses and stone fruit and long nights. I’m so happy cuddled up on the sofa with big cups of fancy tea (Earl Grey with lavender and rose!!) from my friend Jenna. I was blindsided this week when I woke up with a horrible cold and high fever on Monday morning and haven’t been able to get all my posts together this week. I’m looking forward to a mellow weekend of rest and visiting with friends in town. Have a cozy one, friends! See you next week! xo Jen
