According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, we're supposed to receive a lot of snow this year. Well. This certainly seems an auspicious start.
Snow! Before Halloween! In North Carolina!
(Please excuse the poor quality photographs. I popped outside this morning whilst still in my pink striped pajamas, so I didn't want to dawdle...)
And I had just hung my pretty autumn wreath!
I picked it up at the Asheville City Market (LOVE the City Market) last Saturday. My fab friend Sumner and her father run Spotted Dog Farm, and they grow all kinds of gorgeous flowers and berries. Sumner is selling these wreaths right now, along with oodles of cool crafts like knitted creatures in striped beanies and skull shirts, and messenger bags made from recycled grain bags and felted sweaters. Sumner is so talented! And she just opened an etsy shop here.
And because I've meant to post this picture for MONTHS, I suppose now is as good a time as any. Despite the red and gold leaves outside.
And the snow.
This was a bouquet I picked up at Sumner's stall this August. Isn't it lovely?
And in case you are wondering why I keep such beautiful flowers in my laundry room, ask Mr. Tumnus. Anywhere else in the house, and these would be DESTROYED.
