Late summer roses.

...or I guess early fall roses, from my garden.

Dog bed.

I made a new dog bed cover from some old jeans yesterday. I really like the way it turned out.
And so does the doggie...

Beach house rugs.

I'd take any of these for my house by the water....
from the October issue of House Beautiful.

Sunset from the garden.

Snapped these quickly with the iPhone this evening while watering after work. What a gorgeous evening. I just love this time of year with tomatoes ripening by the dozen, pumpkins almost ready, sunflowers following the sun with their faces, apples and pears looking oh so delicious.
Have a great weekend wherever you are!

Wish I was driving one of these on days like today!

My Wonderdog!

Fire sunset.

A different looking sunset when there is a fire in the Olympics...

Patty mail.

I am one lucky girl. I have a friend in London that sends me the best, most gorgeous packages. The wrapping is a work of art....hence I've saved them all!

And fabulous things come inside....like amazing fabric remnants, and collage do-dads, and my favorite tea!

Apples and pears.

Looking like fall, still feels like summer!


From today's NYTimes, here's the link so you can read the fine print. I'm picky about my shears and loved seeing what the famous and not-so-famous use.

Wouldn't it be fun to zip around town on this? My son just restored this Vespa and someone already bought it. It's so cute! I wish it was mine, but that would mean getting my motorcycle license, helmet and all that....no time!
