METAMORPHOSIS MONDAY ~ HOO YOU LOOKIN AT??

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday! A big thank you to our very talented and clever host, Susan of Between Naps On The Porch!

If you haven't already been over to her lovely blog, pop over, say hello and leave your well wishes as she's celebrating her 1st Blogoversary! Also, you can spend a few minutes visiting the other creative posts!


I really don't have a preference for a particular season. What I most treasure is the uniqueness of each season and the way in which Mother Nature morphs from one season to the next.

As much as I love summer, fall is rapidly approaching. The colors are shifting from breezy, bright summer colors to warm, earthy fall colors. My mind has been full of Autumn's glory; rust, orange, reds, mustard yellow, mutued greens. I took some of these....

a few of these.....

wired in some of these.....

mixed in some of these....

added a couple of these....

some sparkle here and there....

and voila!

As is always the case, the photo doesn't do the warm rich colors justice. It is so much prettier in person. I'm planning on getting a booth at an upcoming festival here in the SF bay area, so I'm spending the next couple of weeks getting my inventory ready.

Right now, I'm taking a break so that I can view the other clever and fabulous transformation posted by the other participants for Susan's 31st Metamorphosis Monday! Come along with us! You'll get loads of inspiration! Everyone is always welcome!

Thanks for visiting me! It is always so wonderful to hear from you!

Hugs,

How pretty and cute at the same time is that? I love fall, but we just don't have it here in Florida. As luck would have it, I am going home to Canada for some time in early September..maybe I will be able to catch a whiff of some autumn crispness!

The Artful Paper Doll said...

Hi Tina,

That is a beautiful wreath and that owl is just fantastic. I can't help but feel a bit of sadness at saying good bye to Summer but I will follow your lead and embrace the goodness of the harvest months ahead.

Thank you so much for your visit. Fairy wishes for a magical day.

Cheers! =D

Hi Tina,
Very attractive wreath! I'm not quite ready to put away my summer just yet though. I think once the summer stuff is out of sight, then winter moves in real quick here! Your wreath would look nice on my front door when the times comes though. Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,

Can anyone recommend the robust Remote Management & Monitoring system for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central desktop management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
