Thankful {things I love} Thursday

Welcome Autumn Equinox
Celebrating the first day of my favourite season
fallen leaves fill our walking path
with colours of
yellow * red * gold * green
plump sunflowers left 
 for the birds to enjoy their seeds
pumpkins
I love it all!
Hope you are having a wonderful day filled with Autumn joys!
***
The cheerful
joyous season.
The Autumn time is come.
With song and shout
we welcome
the golden harvest home.

The Coloring Studio

Thrilled to have my completed project
Mindful Mailings

published in the latest issue of
The Coloring Studio
time to sharpen up the pencil crayons
so many gorgeous colours to choose from
it's one of the little rituals that I love ... gathering up all my supplies before I even think of what page to choose first ~ the wonderful quiet mindfulness of colouring
little things like having my shavings gathered in my little fox dish :-) make me smile
I loved the whimsical cover of Issue 3 as we have a planter that is a little pair of boots on our front porch that are very similar to the cover boots ♥
You can find my completed project as well as full page black and white illustrations on pages 76,77,78, 79,81
I'd love to hear if you have created some of the gift tags shown ...
or your completed coloured pages
I truly loved creating each and every one ♥
and I hope you love colouring them as much as I did drawing them xo
♥birds & birdhouses, cat, nests, a whimsical fish♥
You can also read some of my comments on the "We Asked The Artists" pages 28 & 80

Wishing you a beautiful day filled with colour

Thankful {things I love} Thursday

Hello September ♥
filling our days with majestic colour
There is a harmony in Autumn
and a lustre
in its sky
~Percy Shelley~
Summer ends,
and Autumn comes,
and he who would have it otherwise
would have high tide always
and a full moon every night;
and thus\he would never know
the rhythms that are at the heart
of
life
~Hal Borland~
Autumn ~ my favourite season of all ♥
