Our ever changing space. New looks for a new season. I moved the large table from the office out to the "conservatory". I don't know what to call that room. But I do know it is light and bright, the temperature is relatively stable, so conservatory seems appropriate. The orchids love it, as long as I remember to water them. And now that the table is out there, so do the girls. A new place to color or read, have a snack or work on a project.
And also I finished phase one of my "jeans" project, recovering the sofa cushions with donated jeans and thrifted zippers. In the next phase, I hope to make a bed cover for our room. Projected finish date is sometime 2011.

Fox in Socks was the first book Emma decided she could read. And by golly, she did. On the way to school she was so excited, there was no way she would was going to waste a good three minutes of reading time.

Yes, I admit there are a ridiculous amount of Avery pictures in this post. In fact, I admit that there are a ridiculous amount of Avery pictures on this blog. But really, I can't stop taking more and more. She is just so cute, like that other two were before her. So bear with me people, there will most definitely only be more to follow. Sorry to subject you all to such sticky sweetness.

Sweet pumpkins

Our new favorite pumpkin hunting grounds were discovered today at Lavender Hill Pumpkin Farm. A beautiful farm with big shade trees fit with a swing, lavender lining the drive, and wonderful people.  When we arrived it was 91 degrees with a saving breeze coming across the fields.  We unloaded and let loose looking for the perfect one to carve and a few for pie, muffins, and looking pretty around the house.
Sadie and Emma ran up and down the rows looking for what they wanted. Emma picked out a whopper straight off and Sadie meandered not quite committing to any one.  After a few swings under the big tree, picking some little ones and some big, Sadie headed out to pick her carver. She found it and went for one last swing. I paid for our lot, we loaded the car and headed out, not realizing we had forgotten Sadie's special carving pumpkin until later in the evening. Oops.
Lesson: Put your pumpkin in the wheelbarrow lest you leave it behind.
