~A Lovely Monday Indeed~

Glad Tidings.  This 7th day of October has dawned  somewhat balmy here in Vermont with high wind warnings, heavy rain and strong thunderstorms predicted.  Not our usual Autumn weather here in Vermont but our weather is so unpredictable as of late, who can "really" say what the usual is!  At any rate I am enjoying this lovely Monday immensely!  I have my house back....my days are, once again, quiet and I can settle back into my usual routines and get back into the studio!!  The house is finished and we could not be HAPPIER with how it came out.  It is amazing how much difference a color can make.  The house looks so much more cozy and inviting now and it blends into the landscape that surrounds us. :)  LOVE IT!

IN THE HARVEST STUDIO...........YAY..some actual work is about to take place. I've MUCH finishing to do this week as I work on moppets for Sunday's web show!  SO much to do...so little time.

IN THE HARVEST KITCHEN....Pot Roast with all the fixings for dinner this evening. Perfect on this stormy day.

Wishing you a MERRY day :)Doreen

Your house came out just beautiful! :-) You are right, it is so cozy and inviting! I would love to sit out on the porch there, it looks so peaceful.. I love it..
Pot Roast sounds wonderful for dinner, I may have to put that on my menu this week as we are expecting rain at the end of the week :-)
Have a wonderful day! Hugs~Melissa

Your home is splendid!
The rainstorms and horrid winds arrived hereabouts before dawn...so they are on the path to your patch surely. In the meanwhile, enjoy a cozy and creative day dear Doreen.
Sending hugs your way ...

Your home looks so good. I love the colors.
The weather is quickly changing all across the country this year.
Pot Roast sounds yummy. We have
been making some traditional New England dinners here this week as our weather is getting chilly here in California.
ps~ Thanks for sharing a cup of mulled cider with me.
