Wool sweaters and neck scarves have all been shaken out of drawers here in Cambria.
Just a short drive inland and it fell to 17 degrees last night.
Squirrel couldn't wait to get home from his day at the river.
I'll be listing these pottery pieces on Friday (though I won't be able to reserve ) and a few more times too before Christmas.
Hope you are staying happy and warm on your December nights~

Thumbelina is the first fairly tale I read, and its because of this illustration by N.C. Wyeth.
She was so small she could tiptoe along flower stems.
(by Else Wenz Vietor)
Louis Reed shows here how it became cold and Thumbelina must live with a filed mouse or perish.
That is how she met Mr. Mole~
But a swallow saved her
this could be a reason I like tiny things;
and moles and squirrels I can hold in my hand.
Nevertheless I like making larger things too and am at work on some
If I can keep my hair from out of my eyes!
(A picture from a doings at my sisters; my poor family knows I don't like to have my picture taken but somehow someone snapped me when I wasn't looking~)
listing this morning, some ornaments and cups then a day out of doors, maybe I'll see Thumbleina if I look hard enough....

Their tumbling through my garden makes me remember those who have passed off earth and sea, as William wrote in his beautiful cursive in this autograph book from 1882.
of my friend flying through the wildflowers like a bird
To know as long as I am here and remember them, they are here too. Loved.
October with its glorious color and changing light is the perfect time for these musings don't you think?
Wishing you a wild and happy Halloween~
