Autumn Blessings

I received this wonderful pay it forward gift from Wendy in the mail recently. I just love the colors in the design and the expert finishing. Thank you again, Wendy! Such a lovely and unexpected treat to brighten up my autumn.

The fall colors have been absolutely gorgeous here in Philadelphia the past few weeks. I snapped these pictures of the beautiful hill across from our apartment complex this morning. I fear that all the rain we are getting this evening may knock a lot of leaves off the trees. Such swiftly fading splendor.

And lastly is a picture of my sweet and silly Philo, who loves to squeeze himself into a wee basket on our table.

We are traveling to some dear friends' home in Ohio for Thanksgiving. They live on an apple orchard-- we are looking forward to lovely walks outside among the trees and lots of apple cider! I hope your Thanksgiving is bountiful and blessed.
