Happy Birthday!!

Both of my children recently celebrated their birthdays. My daughter turned 13, and my son is now 16.

My daughter wants me to keep her face off of my blog, so I am using a photo of her feet. She can't complain about that. Oh what the heck, I am going to use the cute photo of my kids and their friends and cousin at the bowling alley for their birthdays. Then it was dinner out. One day was ice cream cake. The other wanted a cookie cake. Yummy!!

Did you know there is only one PINK Kindle out there...

and that Stephen King has it? I just found out about this. Apparently Amazon asked Stephen King to write a short story for the launch of the new Kindle (in 2009). Stephen's story featured a Pink Kindle, so they made and presented him with his own Pink Kindle.

Gosh Darnit, I want a Pink Kindle. Seriously. I never wanted a Kindle until I saw his pink one. I think ereaders are a great idea, and I can see the appeal of having all of your books in one place. But so far I haven't felt the need to own an ereader. I still really like my books. I like holding books and turning pages, and looking at the thickness of a book, and where my bookmark is in relation to the end (or beginning) of a book. But I could really go for a Pink Kindle.

Greenfield Hill by Denyse Schmidt

Denyse Schmidt has a new fabric line coming out in November called Greenfield Hill.

I don't know how I feel about these yet. They're a little different than what I am used to from Denyse Schmidt. Not quite as busy or as colorful, but they're still very nice.

It's Almost Autumn...

I love Autumn. It's my favorite time of year. The kids are already excited about going to the pumpkin patch - although I must admit what they are actually excited about is taking Max, the puppy, with us to the pumpkin patch. My husband is looking forward to taking Max in the corn maze. Like Max is really going to help him find his way out!!

I thought I would share a few of my recent Autumn favorites from Etsy.

Autumn photography prints from Raceytay.

Autumn Glass Magnets from StickinWithMe.

Pumpkin Orange Chalcedony Earrings from Arctida.

Autumn Hand bound Leather Journal with Hand-engraved Oak Leaf from lapaperie.

And made by ME, a cute zippered pouch just perfect for autumn!!
