I hope everyone is enjoying their week. Kids are back to school, the hot days are starting to become less frequent and morning walks are crisp, cool and refreshing. Fall is truly my most favorite season. From the golden array of colors draping trees and streets to the light sweaters and trips to Starbucks for hot cocoa, fall is truly a magical season that is never long enough for me!

Steve and I have enjoyed taking our bikes out in the evening and riding around our neighborhood. There is just something about getting on my bike and feeling the breeze on my face as I peddle, that makes me feel alive and like all is well in the world. I guess it's sort of a nostolgic feeling, that takes you back to being a care-free child, riding your bike around your street until dark approached or mom shouted for you to come in. It also doesn't hurt that it's a great, FUN form of exercise :)

We have a family reunion to attend this weekend. I have had mixed feelings about going and I feel very guilty about that. Maybe selfish is the right word? This reunion is Steve's side of the family and with the recent loss of of Grandpa, it's tough, emotionally, to go back to their home and see Grandma there, but no grandpa. He was the one who would excitedly come to greet us when we arrived. He was excited to show off his yard, his garden, his hobby. He told us many stories of his life and I enjoyed listening to him share so much with us. They both have always made me feel very welcome and a part of the family. I miss him dearly. It's just so soon, but I have to suck it up and be there for Steve. I know it has to be even more difficult for him to go back, so I need to be there for him and be strong like he was for me when my beloved Grandma Ann passed away.


I've spent some time creating some new goodies for the Etsy shop! I used to have quite a variety of felt flowers and paper posies in the shop, but when the buttons became such a hit, I stopped making as many. It was time. Time to fill the shop up with more goodies :) I even created some felt flowers that would be lovely as a brooch! Don't worry, there will be more buttons to come! In the next few days many new styles of buttons will be added to the shop, some to coordinate with the following goodies!





Have a great week and I hope you enjoy these little handmade creations!
