month...as if the year had suddenly found
out that she was growing old and could do
nothing but weep and fret over it. This year
is growing old gracefully...just like a stately
old lady who knows she can be charming
even with gray hair and wrinkles. We've had
lovely days and delicious twilights."
~L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
The first day of November dawned chilly and within a few hours the intermittent drops of rain had turned to snow. It was as if nature knew that the time for pumpkin carving and costumes was over and winter could now blow her icy breath into the streets. I always breathe a sigh of relief when Halloween is over and the time to start thinking about Christmas begins. Black and orange are happily replaced by glitter and crystalline colours. In a rare twist though my photos for today are full of flowers! I happened upon little bundles of pale pink tulips in the store the other day and brought one home with me. They feel like a spring flower and they made me feel brighter. I also made some pretty vignettes with a few little treasures of mine including some pretty frames, jars, and a lovely lavender pillow sachet. This little purse drawing was a sketch I discovered in a file last month. It was unfinished but I thought it was pretty so I coloured it and it sits on my vanity now.
