Time to pause and count our blessings.  Small observations made as I finish tidying up for winter are among mine.  A generous layer of colorful fall leaves is left on the beds to provide a bit of extra warmth for the perennials, as well as to relieve the gardner from completing all the cleanup at one time.  I sweep some aside to reduce the layer and unexpectedly uncover tiny buds at the base of the fading sedum, only to carefully replace the insulating cover.  Sleep tight garden… see you soon.

But for now, we will step inside and celebrate this year’s bounty while we soak in the warmth of this special holiday.

    What I am most thankful for is that I can finally open your website ! Everything looks beautiful. I’m enjoying the photography as much as the jewelry. Your dad would have been so proud! The website would have blown him away! It always warms my heart when I wear a piece of your jewelry!
