I'm still learning....

after the rain comes beautiful mornings filled with promise

mid September is pretty neat to still wear flip flops

there is still time for a swim before the snow flies

that the local thrift store holds so many treasures
 like these linen napkins

and as if that wasn't enough...some nice person had dropped off a WHOLE BOX of
large fabric sample from France- that I bought for 5 bucks

 how nice it is that the flowers in my garden are still blooming

how pretty weeds can look with a little morning dew

the advantages of leaving holiday trees up all year
... don't have to put them up this season

how much I really love to sew- and that, " I can do this"

how much I missed Auggie being away at fall retreat for 2 days .... yes, it was only 2 days

and how happy I am when things turn out

 that I can bake delicious zucchini bread
(with a green vegetable the size of a baby python)

So how was your week?


  1. Oh those thrift store finds, just lovely.

    Wishing you the most wonderful weekend.

  2. Learning is something I think we continue to do everyday. The key is to recognize the lessons. Probably one of the things that I adore about you, is your ability to see the beauty in everyday and learn from them.
    Beautiful treasures!

  3. Camilla, what a beautiful post, words and photos that touched me.
    I love the linen napkins you found, what a special touch they will add to the table at meal time.
    I would love to learn to sew, my sewing machine still frightens me :)
    Enjoy that awesome looking bread, I think I am going to have to bake a loaf to enjoy here.

  4. It looks dreamy there. So many wonderful images in this post.

  7. Så vackert alltihop! Älskar bilden på vattnet - det ser väldigt rent och fint ut. Vilken lycka att hitta så fina tyger på loppis. Min vecka var hektisk och höstig. :) Kram!
