Autumn Is In the Air

It's been an unusually cool August so far in Boston with daytime temperatures in the 60s & 70s. Trust me, I'm not complaining because I'm not a huge fan of the summer heat but it has made me start thinking about Fall, my favorite season. It's also made me homesick for the Rocky Mountains but I'm trying not to dwell on that.

So, this morning was spent in "nesting" mode... a new mattress for the daybed since I was practically sitting on the springs, sending the comforters out to be cleaned, fresh potpourri, etc. I also tried to defy the laws of physics & fit more stuff in my closet to no avail.

During my cleaning jag I found a couple of portfolios behind some storage crates. One contained work that I did 15 years ago in art school. Okay, that was a little scary. A much better find was a portfolio of handpainted Japanese & lace papers that I can use in my printmaking. Woo hoo!
