Savoring Summer And Handmade Offerings...



I am savoring these last few weeks of summer.  
My heart longs for the crispness of Autumn, 
but I'm not one to rush through the season.

I like to linger and take in every drop of 
the warm days of sweet summer...
hear the locusts humming during the day 
and listen to crickets singing 
as evening approaches.

  1. Hi Rose
    What beautiful offerings!
    I don't want to rush the summer but I suffer from the heat/humidity...so Fall can't come soon enough...but I'm the only one in my house that thinks that way, my husband thrives on it.
    Blessings

  2. All of these are wonderful! You do such beautiful work! Since my granddaughter was born, I don't seem to have as much tome for handwork.
    I, too, am longing for fall. I can hardly wait for it to arrive! :)
