It's the middle of October already... where does the time go to? It is my youngest daughter's Senior year. This Fall also holds other family events, such as a new baby, Great Nephew for Tim and two weddings this month. Time is slipping through my fingers faster than I would like. We had our first hard frost the morning before last. The garden will now sleep until Spring. I love the crisp mornings and the smell of the fallen leaves. Oh if they could just bottle that smell!
Tonight is the opening of TDIPT Mercantile and I have two Wee Folk ready to be spoken for. Above is Marmee, the wise Barn Owl, inspired by the beloved mother in the classic, Little Women. She is painted and dressed in sepia tones ( or as I call them, Memory Tones)...back to another time.
And then, there is Jeremy the rat. He has been enjoying his evenings here in the Wee Dollhouse and will always keep a home feeling cozy in candle light. Both pieces are very near and dear to my heart....
None so dear, however than that of my own "Little Women". Bailey fussed over Jessie's hair and that of her friend and Jessie went off with her beau, to their last Homecoming. Jessie is my "Little Jo" and Bailey, a more serious "Meg". Life gives you sweet memories as you make more.
