just me in the morning!

i haven't been at my laptop for a couple days...
work and home keeping are on hyper drive right
i am working out at 6:00 am six days a week . whew!

the farm table under the chandie is a busy place ...

i won this wonderful book~a~ zine from Jenni at A Beautiful Nest a week ago.
i have it opened on this page because it' so warm and woodsy. 
you will laugh at me...but i have the packing shredded papers from Donna at
A Life Reclaimed tucked all over my home right now. it's like a potpourri "gift 
with purchase" when she ships her fabulous handmade goodies! 
Mr Dreams and the Chocolate Gousse retrieved a bunch of mini pumpkins 
from the property in the valley last weekend, and the bay leaf is drying for 
holiday hostess gifts and place setting favors.

i wish you all the best day...i hope to catch up on my  visits and comments
soon. i just couldn't go another day without saying hello!

it's Monday morning...the artichokes ! again!

i harvested my two and only artichokes a week ago
and brought them inside to dry... they looked like this...

~  photos from last Monday's post ~

when i woke up yesterday morning ...
such a pretty surprise! the larger choke bloomed!

i decided to place the petite choke in my
Grandmother's tarnished teacup!

i  just finished bringing in some Bay Leaf.

i saved the Autumn satin ribbon from a recently
 purchased box of Fran's Chocolates, and decided to tie
 a bunch on pot rack!

 i love this time of year!
we're hosting Thanksgiving Day!
 i'm off to work!
happy Monday!
