What a cozy bed for the snails. Looks like you have some very good finds from the lake ready for autumn coats.
Hello pretty Arwen!


no wonder why the nuts fell after the weather you had yesterday !! And I think you should definitely try to dye with nuts. I think I have infos somewhere in one of my dyeing books. I'll have a look. You make the most of each situation, the nuts & leaves are so beautitul. And so are the stones your daughter brought back from Cape Cod. oxoxo hugs


I believe the nuts would result in a brown dye: in my family we make a liquor with the unripe green pods + spices in alcohol called "nocino" which is dark brown, so I guess the same would happen if you used them as a dye. I'm curious to see if it's true...

as always, a calm and lovely spot to visit...

thank you.


I love your quilt your cat is sitting on!


What a calming summer post. I love the collections of rocks from the different places you've been. The heart is my favorite.


I picked some black walnuts in their hulls last October (they looked a lot like your specimens)...and have let them rot in a lidded bucket ever since (no, they don't smell that bad, actually). I plan to make a dye this fall when it's cool enough to boil the resulting liquid on the woodstove.

I love the little wood slice! Did you "make" it yourself? If so, any tips?


I stumbled on your blog a few days ago and I'm both inspired and addicted! Thanks for sharing your gift!


Goodness, your photos are soothing, inspiring, beautiful.


Gorgeous shots!


Oh, what beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing them.
