the Saturday morning post ...

somewhere in a America...and this big world...


it's snowing...
it's raining...
it's sunny, and we're bringing in the last of the garden's bounty...
 we're watching college football...
we're arranging flowers...
we're pickin' out a perfect pumpkin...


we're crafting...
we're curled up and reading...
we're watching a child play soccer...
we're glued to America's pastime...
we're sharing a wine or a beer...
we're hugging our babies...

and in the kitchen...


the soup is on!
happy weekend!

from her heart to our table...

never in my life have i pre-ordered a cookbook!
i predict a wave of yumminess to hit our bloggy world 
in the days to come because...

Small Plates &
Sweet Treats 

has arrived on doorsteps around the real world.


this morning, Aran's brilliance on our farm table...

i'll be packing this book around like a school girl!

withLove.

this week, on the farm table, under the chandie...

on the week that Mr D heads to his annual cast and blast, 


i harvest the bay leaves to dry on the farm table.


it's  also time to make new lavender sachets.
 each holds two heaping (Grandmother Elizabeth) tablespoons


 of Maria's amazing lavender. i keep the leaves and lavender in 
canning jars to give as small gift sentiments throughout the year.

we're living the prettiest Autumn 
ever here on 34th street.


although it's not perfectly set,
 the farm table holds my
 favorite October tablescape.
