  “I keep opening my doors and life keeps getting in. It blows in with the autumn winds and sits still with the heat of summer then sneaks silently through the keyhole, dragging moonlight with it, waking me, tapping me on my sleeping shoulders, whispering I should get up, there are stars out there waiting for a waltz, music playing, get up, get up. Sometimes I do. Life understands when I don’t.” ~D. Smith Kaich Jones, from the pages of Bella Grace.

    So many to choose from! I think I loved Becky Stewart’s on starting every day with gratitude! What a good reminder to seek all the blessings in our lives.

  39. HawaiianLibrarian says:

    I like learning from Mou Saha about light and dark. Art 101 seems a lifetime ago so it’s really interesting to learn from professional artists who are clear teachers.

  40. Carol Bogedain says:

    My favorite was the wonderful variety in the 8 tips of Autumn. The pumpkin muffins wrapped in that home style waxed paper to welcome a new neighbor or just have tea with a friend. The ephemera is awesome for us scrap bookers and the touches for home décor feel like Autumn along with the potpourri. Just so many wonderful things I can’t wait until the next issue.

  41. Stevenspat says:

    Shabby soul was a lovely article, beautifully illustrated.the log hop was a different and fun activity.
