Tonight is our little town’s annual parade, and it feels like fall is officially here! I like to keep things very simple when I’m decorating for the different seasons. For fall this year, I mostly just bought pumpkins, cut hydrangeas, branches, and fountain grass from the back yard, and used some wood crates.
Creating these watercolors has been such a fun, artistically-rewarding experience for me. It’s been such a joy to try new ways of creating art, and I love that I get to share them with you! Here is my latest print, available in my Etsy shop…
All profits from the Etsy shop go toward our adoption expenses. And speaking of adoption, nothing has changed since my last update at the beginning of August. We are still waiting to be matched with our little guy, which could happen anytime, then we have a 4-6 month wait until we can bring him home. We are hopeful and know God’s timing is perfect!
There is something so life-giving about creating connections around the dinner table with family and friends. I don’t love to cook, but I do really enjoy inviting people for dinner, even if it means just ordering pizza or Chinese take-out. In Shauna Niequist’s book Bread and Wine, she says, “The heart of hospitality is about creating space for someone to feel seen and heard and loved. It’s about declaring your table a safe zone, a place of warmth and nourishment.” I love that.
I created a sign made for a kitchen or dining area, and it’s the newest sign in the shop!
You can find the sign in my shop here.
Happy Monday! This weekend the hubs and I took a quick little trip with our friends Mark and Mary to Northern Pennsylvania. It was a gorgeous weekend, and we had such a nice, relaxing time! Mark is a pilot, so he flew us up in his small airplane. What a treat!
The area is full of old barns and farm houses and mountains. We spent some time in Wellsboro, PA for their wine tasting festival. Wellsboro is an adorable town and well worth the trip to visit! Spending a child-free day and a half with hubs and friends was perfect! So grateful for the opportunity to go on a mini-vacay!
The part that I love the most about my job is creating custom designs for my customers. Typically, as soon as I hear a verse or quote, I can visualize the sign in my head, and it is so rewarding to bring the ideas to life. So, so fun.
Goodness, how I love old barn wood. It has so much character and depth, and I am so happy that we get to work with it every day.
