October Party

Lucien Lévy Dhurmer
1865 - 1953
"Autumn Wind - Portrait of Miss Suzanne S"
"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
George Cooper, October's Party

Summer Reading

 I went with a list in hand after reading a great article, 'Reading for Life', in the recent issue of Country Life magazine (UK). The article provides a list of  books that the author believes all children should read by the age of 16.  The following advice was given...
"Screw your courage to the sticking place and approach the sofa with it. Prise your remote control out of your child's hand, ignore their howls of anguish and challenge them to read every single one by the time they go back to school in September"

from Country Life magazine

I call it a list to love.

My Vintage Wish List

A vintage Chevy truck appeals to my creative soul.  I would like one in either sky blue,  leaf green or yellow.  Then a small holding in the country with chickens, a big dog and horses.

 If I did have a small holding I would possibly need one of these....
 Oh but I do love everything about this car, especially the colour. Actually the entire photo is gorgeous.

The Liberty Way to Tie a Scarf


These videos are so perfect because of the lovely French girl giving the instructions.  There are 4 videos in total.  The two I posted are my personal favourites.
