October Wallpaper


I’ve been playing around with some watercolor lately for a client and it’s so fun to sit and paint for awhile. It’s provided a really nice respite in what has been such a busy few months. As you can see, I’ve really only mastered the ombre effect so far, but I hope perhaps this fall or in the spring to do a little more painting, if only for myself and this blog. I love this quote from Anne of Green Gables; did you read those books or watch the show when you were younger?

Speaking of a good book; I’m on the hunt for my new read and if you have a suggestion, I’d love to hear it. My favorite books always come from recommendations:) Hoping your first week of October has been delightful.

    I love Octobers too! And am actually just starting Anne of Green Gables for a children’s literature class I’m taking – I never read it when I was a kid!

    As for a good book recommendation; have you tried The Alchemist yet? I just finished it and it was so good! I felt like Oprah with all my “aha! moments” while reading it.
