 and successfully installed them onto

 my replacement laptop.

time to talk turkey...

last year we hosted Thanksgiving.

my theme was "rendre grace"

this year, i am inspired by...

a print by Douglas Smith.
while i am not particularly fond of most of his images,
( i apologize, Mr. Smith)
i do enjoy the detail and charm of this rendering.
(it kind of reminds me of transfer ware)

since it is not our year to host the holiday,
 i can see myself applying a less traditional approach
around our city farm table.


chalkboard...white linen...saffron...silver...
with maybe just a touch a bay leaf

oooooh, i'm liking it!

just thinking and sharing out loud.

ahhhh, November.

i am so pleased to greet you once again!

so much for waiting until November...happy Halloween!

 i popped onto 

this morning, and saw this...

... i just had to share.

 this doggie looks like our Chocolat' Gousse!

on Friday, very bright young man at my office will be addressing my computer issues.
 he's going to remove my hard drive to retrieve my missing pictures, and
search for a drive that will accept my camera memory card in my new/barely used laptop.
hopefully, i'll be up and running by the weekend!

thoughts of you...just a few words...

i didn't intend on posting again until the first of November.

however... many of you are in my thoughts and prayers 
as you prepare for the storm. 

i wish you the warmth and comfort of a safe place.
i hope that all of your homes stand strong and sturdy in the days ahead.



~ since i am still unable to upload my own images at this time, i borrowed
a few photographs from Pinterest...i just entered hurricane ~
