I love those colors as well. We just went through hurricane Sandy here in south Jersey so most of the leaves a re gone with the wind !!However before it , they were those colors..It is such a comfort to feel just a nip in the air and see those colors outside and in..Lovely pics..Izzy


I love your china hutch. The twinkle lights are a great idea and look so charming. I might copy your idea.


I am so sorry to hear about the birches there and it makes me wonder about birches here. There's nothing quite as lovely as a naked birch tree.

Your cabinet is very nice, too. It all looks cozy and wonderful.


Hi, It has been awhile since I visited your blog- which I have always loved. I was wondering if you still had the Xmas Stocking patter / link for "For a Very Good Girl" I think it had embroidered on it.
If you could let me know if it is still on your website that would be great!


Lovely pictures!

I so love reading Turkey Feathers, seeing the beautiful photography, and keeping up with y'all's craftiness.

Your trees are stunning, Vicki. We've had beautiful autumn color here too, this year. I love birch trees, but they are one of the trees we aren't allowed to grow on parking strips here, because they so easily break in strong winds, wreaking havoc with electrical wires. It's a shame about those bugs. We've friends who recently did manage to save an old evergreen from beetles.

I love the lights and your hutch. I have twinkle lights above my entertainment center, which holds nutcrackers at Christmas, and a collection of Roseville pottery the rest of the year. I like the way the lights capture one's attention, and draws it to something pretty like that.

We continue to hold a good thought for those on the East Coast. It's been such an ordeal for so many, and tragic. My friend Beth's parents are still without power, and staying with friends.



Dear Vickie,

Happy Holiday~ I am in my last year of grade school study and will be finishing school in May, 2013. I am looking forward the free time to embroider and come get some Victorian patterns from you soon. Hope all is well with you and the girls are looking great on the recent post~ Hugs, Chase
