Catching Up On October

I picked up the latest issue of prims yesterday at Barnes & Noble. It is filled with awesome fall and winter characters and I can't wait to sit down with a cup of hot tea and enjoy the stories behind the creations. I always enjoy learning more about the folks whose blogs I visit from time to time, including Old Lady Morgan and Audry Eclectic Folk Art.
Here are a couple of pieces from our entry way table. I don't have anything very elaborate going on there but enjoy seeing these old friends every day. The JOL lantern is a reproduction but I don't recall if it is Bethany Lowe or not. The cat and pumpkin toy are BL pieces. I like their nostalgic look.
This is book fair season! Due to the generosity of those who attended 2012 Christmas Eve services at our church every student at our six partner schools can select two free books at their book fair. These are schools that, for the most part, have not been able to support a book fair for years. I've had the privilege of visiting every fair and seeing the joy of the kids and hearing about their enthusiasm for reading--I can tell you the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is in big demand! Some of them pick out books they can read to their younger siblings--so sweet!
