saturday shopping list - october 17th

although it is a bit cloudy to start this saturday morning here in atlanta, the weather report calls for abundant sunshine with brisk (by georgia standards) autumn temperatures... high in the low fifties. can you get a more beautiful blue sky than you find on a crisp sunny fall day... with golden tones shining all around... people bustling about in bundled up contentment. the list today is definitely a reflection of nature around me right now

off to watch my nephew's soccer game in just a bit (go fireballs!)... some time with the family, and perhaps a few cups of hot chocolate! drinking a warm cup of cocoa takes me instantly to that place in childhood... the excitement of a new season and approaching holidays (even in california, where i grew up, and where the temperature often remained quite hot this time of year!). hope everyone is enjoying their october weekend ;)

apologies for the lack of posts this last week ~

it has been a week where i've felt continually anxious to do something, yet can't settle to actually accomplish anything i really need to do... does anyone ever feel this way?

hmmm, i guess the best way to describe it would be that i feel that i have some really wonderful and exciting life changing event about to happen that i can't wait to begin working on, yet i've somehow forgotten what that event is? it is a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and frustration all at once... perhaps it can be attributed to the change in weather and season?

hopefully my mind and body will settle this week to something productive... i have many ideas for the shop for this holiday season, so i'd best get creating!

in the meantime... i thought i'd share a few of my current etsy favorites ;)
