the day was warm ...

well it wasn't REALLY
... warm, that is ...
but with a little imagination, it seemed that way
:)



and the dahlias ARE blooming ... and the bees ARE still buzzing



and with a window or two open
(while wearing the first woolen sweater of the season)
and the kettle on



all was well
:)

7x10" book cover
watercolor paper

tea bag papers
early reader primer text (1960's)
tea bag string
photo transfer of my very own dahlias
bee stamp

I love this - I just got a box full of bits, pieces and papers - (that I really didn't need) maybe I will create something like this- or, maybe I should just mail the stuff to you!!!

Adore your beezy weezy creations dear Kimmie AND how you've incorporated tea paper and string...I have a huge collection that I just photographed and have plans for as well!

We woke up to 43 degrees this early am and it never got very close to 80 even....change is in the air...now I need to find my house slippers...this barefoot girl has chilly feet :)

Love this post very much!
