Meet Patches! We are spending a little time with her and the people she owns for a few days.
It's so good to see the views from the windows of your loved ones far away once in a while, and to share the rhythm of their days.
It's colder than it looks out there! But it's a great perch for watching flamboyant magpies, free range hens, and even deer in the morning while sitting down to a steaming bowl of warm oatmeal. There is now frost on all those gathered pumpkins, and snow in the forecast!
And of course, it's great to shop their shops too! I think I may have to go back and snatch up this darling teapot from Planted Earth in Orem Utah.
Birdies and brown transferware. What could be more perfect?
If this doesn't get you in the mood, I don't know what will!
"Do you like this?" asks Mr. Cottage, reaching out for that gorgeous tin cone. (Uh. . . , what do YOU think?)
Wonderful laces in a showcase.
Yummy toile paper bags.
I can tell right now that my own mannequins at home are very underdressed!
A fun display of frames upstairs!
More lovelies in store up here too. . . .
From time with loved ones, to the smallest joys . . .
So much to be thankful for.
I hope there are wonderful days ahead for you this week wherever you are. . . .
