Maple leaves (and turkey!)....


Well it's a soggy Sunday afternoon here in Sheffield; it really feels like we're in the midst of autumn now (although it's my fave season I wish we could have it without the soggy days!)

The one thing I adore about autumn are the colours. Speaking of which, I have a li'l card which sums this up nicely:

This card is also dedicated to any Canadian peeps who'll be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow! Enjoy your holiday and the scrummy food that usually accompanies it *wink* It was totally worth sacrificing so many buttons for such an occasion methinks :)

Well looking outside my window it looks like I'll be spending the rest of this soggy Sunday at my desk...I guess the rainy days do have a positive element to 'em after-all!

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you're celebrating Thanksgiving, do it in style!

Catch ya later!

i'm a canadian peep! Thx for the nice wishes, but I have a very sick kiddo at home today... Oh well, at least we have the stuffing and apple pie :) Happy day to you!

Marisa said...

Thanks for remembering our Canadian Thanksgiving :) Love that set and your buttons look adorable. Soggy days = lots of stamping. Enjoy!

Absolute loveliness!!! I agree so worth sacrificing the buttons for! :> What I do not like about fall is the soggy days but hardly any here at all so far! It usually is but not this year which makes me really appreciate fall and understand why people like it! And I am a Canadian so happy to see you send us wishes! >

LOVE those sweet little maple leaves (inspired, no doubt by your red mittens! lol)and those luscious buttons so carefully picked out with your loving fingers :) Ah, this really needs a special place in someone's new studio, Duchess...just sayin'!! ;) We are home safe and sound and with a million hangers from Ikea!! I was getting some weird looks in the line My new closet needs nice new hangers :) And some for the guest bedroom as well ;)
