Hello and happy Wednesday! It's my favorite day!! Wednesday is the day I work as docent at the
Nathaniel Russell House. History has been one of my hobbies since I was a child. It's so much fun to share the beauty of our historic city with visitors from around the world!
Have you started to feel a bit of chill in the air yet? It's still warm and green in Charleston, but we
were blessed to travel to Asheville last weekend and had the pleasure of seeing the leaves beginning to change in the mountains of North Carolina. We also enjoyed a wonderful tour of Biltmore Estate and sampled delicious wines at their winery. Our son turned 21 this year and it was his first time tasting wine. That's him below. He definitely enjoyed the experience!
My son has been away at college for 3 years now and I still struggle with empty nest syndrome. I ward it off by spending peaceful hours in my craft room. This week I've been happily preparing for another challenge at the Frilly and Funky Challenge Blog! Sue is our hostess and her theme is Autumn Colors. She invites us to celebrate this lovely time of year by creating a project using the gorgeous colors of the season. I'm hoping you'll have time to play along with our challenge!
The leaves in the Blue Ridge Mountains were in the early stage of change. It was breathtaking to see the transformation that took place in just the few days we were there. It gave me all the inspiration I needed to begin my card. I tried to pull the rich hues of the mountain foliage from my memory and re-create them in my Autumn Harvest card.
I'm not sure why, but fall fills me with an insatiable urge to bake, especially anything featuring apples or pumpkin. I love the way our home smells when something scrumptious is in the oven. Apple Struesel Coffee Cake is one of our family recipes and a seasonal favorite. Just click on the link above if you want to give it a try!
I'm so happy you stopped by for a visit! Thank you for sharing your time and friendship with me. Your kind words and comments warm my heart and soul and are truly appreciated. I wish you cozy days of crafting, baking, and memory making!
