It's gorgeous outside!
Do you feel so happy in autumn?
I sure do.
Even the setting sun becomes mysterious in its burnt orange and golden glow.
The days are about 90'F and the nights about 70'F at 9 p.m.
All I want to do is sit under the big twinkly tree or swing in the hammock.
Absorbing these days of October.
I feel like I always have to fight for my October days as I am being catapulted towards the holidays faster than fast.
I love the holidays, but...
I need my autumn too, what about you?
Guess what I went and did?
Wait, to back track...
As you know a few years ago I left city life for the country.
I traded cocktail parties for growing seeds in the garden.
I didn't have phone or television.
I finally got television channels last year.
But I was really resisting a more modern day cell phone.
Alas, I plunged last week.
And now I am officially on Instagram too.
I know I know, I have been years late to all social media.
I really fought it.
Now I don't even know why?
I just wanted to paint and plant things in the country after leaving city life.
Be less connected I guess.
I only joined Facebook last year or so.
But I am pretty much over those feelings of solitude these days.
My sister made me an Instagram account when she was here a few months ago.
So, now I can use it.
I am having a ball!
No wonder you all love it so much :-)
Little snapshots of this and that's, I love it, so easy and fun!
Everyone's excited about it, it seems, even the butters ;-)
I love that you can post super short little videos too.
Something wonderful and exciting.
We were featured in this stunning magazine called Scarlet Pink.
Anna Brahms' dolls are on the cover.
Her work is beyond!
I shared oodles of Halloween goodies from my little world on the pages...
Fun fun times!
There are sooo many beautiful bits of art and goodness in this magazine.

I am giving a Scarlet Pink magazine away to one of you.
Sure am :-)
Just leave a comment saying anything you want.

What was the last song you danced to?
This magazine is a real treat I tell ya.
A mysterious and curious gem!
Just what the heart needs for inspiration
