There's something very intriguing about that sunflower against the shake siding. It really speaks of the season to me. Thank you for the loveliness.


I love sunflowers. We had them when I was little and it's been a lifelong love affair. :)

I'm having so much fun watching your friends book rise up the bestseller list Charlotte! It was number three this weekend on the L.A. Times list. I joined the many and picked myself up a copy this weekend. :)

Wishing your friends gorgeous weather for the upcoming wedding! The weatherman granted me two wishes last week so I may have some pull with him. ;)

A big congratulations to Susan on winning your absolutely adorable snowman!


I love sunflowers. I recently posted some fun pictures of Grace in a field near us. Nothing is more glorious to see! We are going to try and grow some next year. Grace insists!

Fall is my favorite time of year and I revel in each day of it. This weekend we ventured into our first fall festival weekend! I love taking pictures of all the sweet bits and bobs of Autumn!

Have a sweet week and enjoy every minute!

Congratulations Susan that Sweet Mountain Holiday Snowman is the cutest. Really enjoying reading your creative blog space here this afternoon, it has made my day.

Still can't believe I won :-) Thanks again.


I will be on the lookout for your collection. I've got to have some of those critters. The mice are really calling my name. Is there any way we can find out what retailers in our area might have them?

Oh that's how today feels to me! I'm wishing I had a laptop with wireless right now so I could move work to the backyard before Winter gets here.

Charlotte what a beautiful Sunflower... The Sunflower speaks of Autumn and reminds us of just how lovely the season can be... Happy Autumn to you!




It's a pretty photograph of the sunflowers and perfect for illustrating your title. I didn't grow sunflowers this year, and I missed them. It's nice to share in the beauty of yours.
Thanks for all the nice things you share here Charlotte.
I enjoy them.
