Thoughts of Autumn

I know we'll get a few more warm days between now and Halloween, but cooler weather has certainly arrived in New England. I'm reluctant to let summer go but I've pulled the down comforter out and found my fuzzy slippers in the closet. I'm thinking about the coziness of wearing scarves and even the idea of knitting on that permanent Work In Progress that is the giant orange blanket I started years ago seems fun again.

Here are some new autumnal items in my shop, and a few classics :)

The newest Mom card now in my Etsy shop, Morning Glory Farm:

She sits in the yard there at the farm stand while the trucks pull in full of corn and pumpkins, she's been doing this for so many years. I've gone with her, it's a fantastic place to paint!

That orange and green color combo really sends me. This is one of my regular nest pins:

It was on the front page of Etsy a few times recently which was a huge thrill :)

Here it is as a ponytail holder:

And now I've made my felted nests smaller and glued them to ring bases and bobby pins, this fall color combo has been really popular!

I have a lot of nest items in production and I will be adding new colors to my Etsy shop in October!


  1. Thanks so much for all the sweet words.
    I love this blog post, all the fall colors.
    Your pins and rings and hair ties are gorgeous !
    Love, Mom

  2. I love your Mom's new card design! Beautiful. And what fun to include a photo of her painting at the farmstand. :)

    It makes me homesick for New England and all the lovely fall colors...
