~ Before Everything Goes Red ~

It's been quite a while since I've posted. There has been so much going on around here I just haven't had the 'ump to put a post together. I haven't visited any of you in so very long, guess this is where the term "bad blogger" comes into play. I discovered a long time ago sometimes I'm much better off keeping to myself. Although sharing our homes and lives is what many of our blogs are about, I'm reluctant to share some of the personal things going on around here. I'm just not ready to open up, I admire those of you that do. My only request is for you to keep me in your thoughts, when the time is right I'll share and share it all, right now just isn't that time.

Before Halloween I had such a burst of energy, my creative mind was in over load. Yesterday I began the daunting task of taking all of that down along with most of the fall decor to get ready for the Christmas decor. I can hardly believe it's just a few short weeks away. Have you already started your Christmas decorating or do you wait until after Thanksgiving?

The end of the counter is one of my go to key spots for adding holiday decor. My dough bowl has been one of my favorite tools to use for decorating this past year. Filled with pumpkins, gourds and a bit of bittersweet the beautiful patina takes on a life of it's own.

 The shimmer and sheen of mercury glass along with crystal takes it from plain to having an ah-ha moment.

 Yes, I still have peanut butter kisses in the glass jars, I'm working slowly to get rid of them, my hips aren't loving the way that's going, but a person can't waste candy can they?

I thank each and everyone of you
who have emailed to check in
your kind words and thoughts
mean the world. 
I encourage everyone
to find what makes
you happy and useful
Embrace it and
make it work
for you. 
Until next time....
Hugs ~ Lynne ~
