Autumn Roses, Misty November Days And An Interview.

I admit it, I am not looking forward to winter.
I don't like the shorter days.
I don't like the early darkness setting in.
I am not a lover of the holiday season in general....

But ~
I do love the Autumn.
November roses show off their white glow ~ 

Perfect buttercream petals ~ 

Reaching up towards the sun on misty November days ~ 

Competing against the warm yellow leaves ~ 

Greeting visitors just at our entryway ~ 

An invitation to view bright Autumn chrysanthemums ~

and flaming orange pumpkins ~

These radiant yet hazy days call for a studio clean-up ~ 

and cozying up in my little reading nook ~ 

Fluffy pillows and warm light ~ 

Little reminders of Halloween embellish my studio hutch ~ 

I am happy to stay home.
Inside and outside.
And...truth be known, I rarely leave my house, other than to shop at the grocery.

But, isn't it wonderful to be connected electronically?
It opens up a whole world of goodness and opportunity, doesn't it?

I was asked to do an interview for The Palette Pages.
No need to leave my house!
So fun to answer questions about my art.
Would you like to read it?

It is isn't very long, but it gives just a peek into my history as an artist.
I would love for you to read it.  
Maybe even leave a comment!  :-)

It was such fun to answer the questions.

Ohhhh....and, I am having a little shop sale through November 16th.
You can receive 30% off storewide by using coupon code AUTUMNLOVE.

You see, we have a huge leak in our foundation.
We are still trying to get caught up after our 8 month lay-off.
Now, I'm afraid we are going to have a very large plumbing bill.
The leak is under the master bathtub on one end of the house.
The water has made it's way all the way outside the dining room wall on the opposite end of the house.
It is a very bad situation.

So, every little bit helps.
Here is the link to my Etsy shop:

Maybe do a little early holiday shopping?

Is it misty and warm in your neck of the woods?
Is it cold and snowy?

I am holding on to these lovely warm Autumn days.
I am already seeing Christmas commercials on television.
I want my Thanksgiving first.
I already have my table set in anticipation!

Until Next Time:

I love those roses! So pretty! And the the mums and pumpkins, you're just all autumned up! :-)
I'm not one for the holidays either, but I do love autumn and winter. We had 73 today for a high and tomorrow it drops to 50. Yay!
ps...I love your studio and hope your plumbing issue isn't as bad as you think.

I am actually proud of my roses for the first time in forever! Thanks to you and your help. I finally understand how to properly trim them.

Hi Laura:

Thank you. I am loving my roses too. November is a lovely month here in inland Southern California. It's like a second springtime with warmer colors.

I am hoping that the leak will be less serious too. Makes me want to rent a little cottage somewhere out in the woods. Home ownership is not making me very happy lately!
