A pretty, old box of matches; we’ve had this box forever (maybe got it at a thrift store in Connecticut?) but I was just admiring it the other day and thought I would snap a few pics of it)

The sun going down earlier means less time outdoors, but a lot more art indoors!

We finally got our first real cold weather today (even some snow, though it didn’t stick) so of course I am already thinking about next year’s garden. One plant I really want to grow is Lunaria (Silver Dollar Plant). Thanks to Eliza for the inspiration for that one! I missed having Eucalyptus (another Silver Dollar, haha!) this year, so would like to grow that again in 2016. And so the “to-grow” list begins.

Hope you all are having a nice weekend!

    Another great series – love ‘Zilla’s braids, your jewelry creations, the patchwork colors in the garden and you still have strawberries – wow! Glad to inspire a plant for your garden. Remember, Lunaria are biennial, so perhaps sow them 2 years in a row, where they can go wild and self-sow from then on. They are such a pretty luminous plant.
    Have a great turkey day!
