Over the River, Through the Woods . . .







Meet Patches! We are spending a little time with her and the people she owns for a few days.




It's so good to see the views from the windows of your loved ones far away once in a while, and to share the rhythm of their days.




It's colder than it looks out there! But it's a great perch for watching flamboyant magpies, free range hens, and even deer in the morning while sitting down to a steaming bowl of warm oatmeal. There is now frost on all those gathered pumpkins, and snow in the forecast!




And of course, it's great to shop their shops too! I think I may have to go back and snatch up this darling teapot from Planted Earth in Orem Utah. 





Birdies and brown transferware. What could be more perfect?




If this doesn't get you in the mood, I don't know what will!




"Do you like this?" asks Mr. Cottage, reaching out for that gorgeous tin cone. (Uh. . . , what do YOU think?)




Wonderful laces in a showcase.




Yummy toile paper bags.




I can tell right now that my own mannequins at home are very underdressed!





A fun display of frames upstairs!




More lovelies in store up here too. . . .




















From time with loved ones, to the smallest joys . . .

 So much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope there are wonderful days ahead for you this week wherever you are. . . .

Lovely post! And all those items are speaking to me quite loudly as well!

But nothing did like that birdie teapot - fusing the two things I love the most in my favorite of colors. ♥♥♥

Happy Thanksgiving to you, sweet lady.

Oh! I have the companion to this teapot - the tea for one pot. It was a gift from my sister several years ago.

"to share the rhythmn of their days." That was written so beautifully. Love all the Christmas decor and of course, the kitty. She is a real stunner. I, too, would go back for that tea-pot. Hope to see it on your wonderful old cupboard soon. Deb

Ooh . . .lovely things all around. The kitty is adorable, and I do think that teapot would fit right in in your home. And I laughed about your mannequins being underdressed!

Jacqueline,
What an adorable pose from Patches for your post!
I agree, time away spent with friends recharges ones inner batteries!!!
Thank you for the virtual shopping, once again! I hope to venture out a bit more this week!

Jacqueline, came by looking for my Vintage fix. Fine, till I saw Patches, then I couldn't look at anything else! Well, I did manage a few peeks at that sweet teapot.
