autumn breeze / fall color

L - iphone / T - phone pic

Last night we had a bad storm - hail, strong winds and power outage. But was beautiful today - today was the first day it really felt like fall. I came home - on time for a change - and enjoyed a swing in the hammock. In fact, I do this every evening, just for a few minutes, just until the hammock stops swinging, and then I go inside and feed the animals. Tonight I smelled autumn in the air - I was happy. / there was a coolness to the air this morning as i walked to class. i hope it's here to stay for a while – i am so not a "summer" girl.

lost / found

L - Nikon / T - Nikon

I did a lot of walking on the streets of Boston, and a lot of getting lost. But it didn't matter - there were new and different things to see on every block. Things that make you slow down - to take it all in - instead of rush about to the next destination. / my shoes are never where i left them...

pilgrims / patriots

solo post - L, iphone

Do you know now?
This past weekend I spent some time in several very historic towns. Plymouth, MA, Boston and Deerfield, MA. I walked where pilgrims walked... sat where Benjamin Franklin may have sat... opened doors that the famous photographer sisters opened... it was a pretty amazing trip. As is often the case there just wasn't enough time to take it all in. I think I'll just have to travel there again.

by sea / by land

solo post - L , iphone

I had a fun weekend away and of course took a lot of photos. But I haven't uploaded them to my computer yet. I took almost as many on my iphone so I'll share a couple of those right now. Maybe you can tell where I was. Any guesses? (No fair if you're friends with me on FB and have seen some hints there) Different towns - both historical.

shiny / bright

L - Nikon / T - Canon

I polished up a few of my spin rings, shiny and bright, and now I'm comfortable to share some with you. I'm still working out designs but I'm starting to feel encouraged that I have something wearable. Have you ever worn a spin ring? They really are addictive - fun to play with, especially if you're a fidget. / this is a week of studying and test - i like to come home and light a candle or two. it makes it calming and nice.

a little pouche / a knapsack

L - Nikon / T - Canon

Metalsmithing is my past time these days (I finally got my studio set up at home) and as a result I haven't been taking photos - I haven't even done any blogging lately. But I did take this photo last Thursday because I wanted to share it with you. Isn't this the cutest little bunny purse? I ordered it from a fabulous designer on etsy. Taylor liked it so much I think she's going to want to borrow it sometime. I love etsy. About this time of year I start looking on there with gifts in mind. I think maybe other people do too... so I'm hoping to add some of the rings I've been making to my shop real soon. Do you do have an etsy site? Do you have any tips for getting customers? / i was looking for my knapsack today and this is where i found it. behind the curtain... with bunny.

upstairs / downstairs

solo post - L, iphone/Nikon

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer. -Helen Hunt Jackson

This time of year the shadows dance lively as I get ready for work. I see them upstairs and downstairs. I'm lucky that I don't have leave for work before the sun rises - I get to see the pretty light show on my walls. I love how the house has a cool autumn feel in the morning too. We're moving into my favorite season. What about you? Do you look forward to cooler days ahead or are you wanting to hang on to the summer?

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
