I can't believe it's November already. Where, or where did this year go? On the one hand, a lot has happened - Hubby and I finally moved into our Dream Home and we're still adding this item and that item to make the house exactly the way we want. Anyone read Shanon Grey's books in The Gatekeeper series, The Shoppe of Spells and Meadow's Keep? Well, both of these books are set in the fictional town of Rutherford and Shanon Grey's writing and descriptions of the small village of Rutherford and the gardens behind The Shoppe of Spells are so delightful that I've decided to do my best to recreate that garden. My landscaping won't come together until the spring and I'm not sure how many of the plants Shanon Grey describes will actually grow in S.E. Texas, but I'll do my best. (If you haven't read these books, then I recommend them highly. Great writing, characters and plot.)

I'm glad Halloween is finally over. It's a fun holiday, but these year it seemed that I overloaded on witches and ghosties and scary movies - oh, my! Added to that were all the cute pictures on Facebook and Pininterest. Too many vampire and werewolf novels, and waaaay too much candy. Especially the candy. I don't think I'm going to want any kind of sugar for at least six months, which is shame since the holidays are right around the corner. With luck, I'll recover from my sugar high before I have to make the cherry pie for Thanksgiving dinner.
Back to it being November. Flipped the page of the calendar from October to November and couldn't help but smile at the new picture by Mary Singleton. I love Mary Singleton's folk art. Here's an example:
Wish I could make it larger, but here's the link to a Mary Singleton Pinterest page with nice big pictures! Beautiful artwork! I wish I could show you this month's picture, but it's under copyright. (The calendars are published by Lang.)
Here's wishing everyone a great weekend!
