Home is the nicest word there is.
- Laura Ingalls Wilder

Good... September, autumn morning!
It looks to be a FINE day ahead...
with mildly temps & partly cloudy skies!

The days to come, will ONLY bring
along more welcoming symptoms of fall!
Decorated porches will be graced with
ALL the splendor... of muted hues,
comfy settings & plump pumpkins!

It's a GLORIOUS time of rejoicing...
for the BOUNTY of God's goodness!

BLESSED day... friends!

Autumn brings NEW Faith...

There is a harmony in autumn
and a luster in it's sky,
which through the summer
is not heard OR seen.
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

It's a MISTY autumn evening
here in Kentucky, one that makes you 
want to curl up under an ole' 
quilt, book in hand, while sipping
on a FINE cup of dark roast coffee!

BUT... at the moment, that thought will
have to be pushed aside, for things 
are in SUCH a disarray here at the farm!

I'm leaning on FAITH of those 
days to come, for the comfort of tomorrow...
& the NEW possibilities that lie ahead! 

With each passing day...
& autumn NOW here, the moment
has came to bid old things farewell!

In the coming weeks... I hope to know
the true feeling of a bountiful fall, one
that presents peace, love & understanding!

Oh, SWEET friends... I have SO much
to share... & will SURELY do so in due time!
BUT, for NOW... I sincerely ask for your
time, JUST a moment of prayer
that God's will be done & ALL that
I do be to glorify Him!

BLESSED evening... from the heart!

The Earth has rolled around again
and harvest time is here,
The glory of the seasons
And the crown of all the year.
-Carolyn Wells

The days of AUTUMN 
are upon us & those welcoming symptoms
present themselves in MANY forms!

One of those forms... is through
our wardrobe & the accessories we choose!

And VINTAGE is what I choose...
with a whole lotta COUNTRY girl charm!

With years of roaming the countryside,
plundering through ole' homesteads
to gather VINTAGE goods, I've ALWAYS
salvaged every piece of clothing & accessories
my hands could grab! 

SO for the FIRST time ever...
there will be offerings from the small,
FINE collection of vintage wears/wares
that's been tucked away!

ALONG... with a SWEET gathering
of 'Beehind Thyme Farm & Garden'...
high quality, cotton T's!  PERFECT for
wearing underneath those button-up flannels
throughout the autumn & winter season!
The accessories that I will be toting
to the upcoming show... will be ALL
things VINTAGE, NO current day bling,
JUST old time goodness, SUCH as
this slide, choker chain embellished
with large, pearls!
With this sampling of finds shared...
along with other, SUPERB talent showcasing
their goods... I hope that I can encourage YOU
to attend this GRAND event!

HERE are the full details...

I TRULY look forward to seeing YOU...
AUTUMN blessings...

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
with summer's best of weather
and autumn's best of cheer.
- Helen Hunt Jackson

It's nearing those moments of harvest... 
the loading up of nature's BOUNTY,
another season has arrived & the one has gone!

YOU know... if you REALLY stop
& ponder on the word... seasons, 
you will find it brings a BOUNTY to the table!
It offers the division of the months, 
the flavor to food OR a time that's
characterized by a particular 
circumstance/situation in life!

NOW... that's some work for 
SUCH a simple word... seasons!
As in the days & weeks to follow... 
there's anticipation for more time to sit
quietly, to ponder & to be devoted on what lays near!

It looks to be another... season of life, up ahead,
one that will be saturated with ALL new things!

With the BOUNTY of autumn... & ALL
of God's promises, I'm grasping &
embracing ALL the newness of His will!
  JUST as in the labor of 
harvesting... there is sweat, blood & tears 
shed throughout certain... seasons of one's life!

I'm claiming the VICTORY over
all that happens to be coming... 
JUST as a farmer hopes for a PLENTIFUL
gathering come harvest time!

Well... friends, it's harvest time...
no matter the... season!

BLESSED evening... from my heart to YOURS!
