{Home and Art} Soaking Life In, and a Sale

I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately. Projects and blogging are taking a back seat right now to spending time with people and enjoying fall in Tennessee before we leave for Spain. I'm trying to soak in as much time enjoying the people and places I love here before we move.

A couple of weeks ago we went up to the lake for a few days with some friends. Here are some photos that I thought you might enjoy....


a nice view to wake up to...

a furry friend who was happy to be there...

a cedar waxwing, just hanging out...

fall colors and feathered friends...

mysterious coves...


beautiful, hazy light...

time to reflect...

hikes to magical places...

dappled light and textures...

a little fishing...

climbing out on the rock without falling in...

raccoon tracks....

faux leaf fossils...

the trees' last hurrah....


BEAR tracks! Eek!


=  one fine day...

 
In other news, I will be closing my Etsy shop down about a week before Christmas, and it will remain closed until after we have moved, settled into our new digs in Spain, and I've had a chance to figure out all of the legal issues associated with running a home business on a military installation in a foreign country. This will also make my bookkeeping easier for my long-suffering accountant/friend.


Therefore, if you've been meaning to order something from me but have been putting it off, NOW is the time to do it! You can get a jump on your Christmas shopping, and help make my packing a little easier.

Incidentally, I have a lot of new necklaces, brooches, and magnets that are not yet listed, as well as greeting cards featuring my "Proverbs 31 Woman" series. Although they're not yet visible in the shop, they're certainly available to purchase! If there's a piece you are interested in but can't find, send me a message, and I'll check my extra inventory - chances are, I do actually have what you're looking for. I'll be happy to reserve a piece for you.

In the spirit of thanksgiving, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank all of you, my lovely readers, for following along on this blog, ordering items from my shop, encouraging me through your comments and "likes," and sharing my work with your friends. It means a lot to me personally, and I wouldn't be doing this if it weren't for you! As a little thank-you gift, I am offering 10% discount on your purchases between today and when I close down for the move. Simply enter the coupon code: GIVETHANKS when you're checking out. Click HERE to start shopping.

Hope you're having a happy week!
