Pic of the Week

This is my photo pic of the week.
It just feels like fall. Cool days and the aroma of freshly baked
treats wafting through the house.
The photo was taken by a very talented, creative young woman.
She is a full time student at U of O and is one darn good cook! 
Check out her blog, A Duck's Oven for great recipes and inspiration.
Pumpkin Blondie with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Did I mention that this amazing young woman is my daughter...

From the Sewing Room

vintage french labels
sewing machine
finished project

With fall decorating in full swing this felt like the perfect time to break out this slubby, nubby, loose weave linen and make a few table runners...
These measure 17x103" nice and long perfect for a harvest table

Or how about a good white cotton with a little splash of red and a vintage label...

 Now add a great harvest table, some fall color and place settings...

 You can find these at our Worthy Goods space at the Monticello Fall Premier Show.
You can also find these great labels if you have a project of your own in mind!

happy creating...

Boot Love

Fall is upon us.  The perfect time for a little boot shopping.  There are so many gorgeous choices out there.  Like this riding boot...
 How about these fab granny lace ups...

Rugged yet refined...

Frye 'Jane' tall boot...
Can't get enough Frye...
Frye even has bling if you need it...

How about one that comes to the calf...
If you want more drooly, fab boot love go to anthroplogie and check out their new arrivals!  I think there's a granny lace up in my future. I'll keep you posted...
