Inspired by the County Fair, this display features the bounty and traditional crafts of the American Farm - fruits and vegetables, crochet, jams and candles, woodworking, and that County Fair indulgence - saltwater taffy!
September always brings a mix of feelings for me. Left over from childhood is the sense of new beginnings - a new teacher, a new school year, perhaps even a new school! A mix of anticipation and dread.
Would I like the new teacher, how much homework would I have, would this teacher be a "Hard Marker"? The end of long summer days, the closure of the pools, the screens came down and the storm windows went up.
A transition. I don't do that well. As much as I love the different seasons, I mourn the passing of the old to the new. Right about now, when you begin to sense fall even in the warmest days, I go through my clothes, wanting to wear certain items just one more time, and fretting over those I neglected to wear enough during the summer. And while I love my boots, my toes are so happy in sandals, my nails painted a bright red.
But I will transition, I will wear my boots, and tights, and fall in love all over again with my fall and winter clothes.
And I will keep my toenails painted a bright red just for me!
New Seattle Tea Towels by Trilby Hainstock - a great gift for a departing guest, the friend who moved away, or to spruce up your own kitchen!
