Gathering Together in Watercolor


 "For man, Autumn is a time of Harvest
of Gathering Together. . . ."
 Edwin Way Teale       


The weather is changing. . . .
Cool nights and comfortable days. . . .
My thoughts naturally go to visions of Hearth and Home
of Harvest and Gathering,
of returning to a Simpler Time. . .

Every year I begin my gathering for the long winter months. . . .

Iron Pots for cooking in the fire. . . .

Handmade Brooms for sweeping the hearth
and dusting the ash off the pots. . . .

Vintage Tins for steaming puddings and breads. . . .

and for preparing those holiday goodies. . .

Wooden Bowls to hold---anything. . . .

Wooden Ware for mixing, tasting, and dipping. . . .

Handmade Rolling Pins for the baked goods. . . .
Gourds for crafting. . . .



Vintage Jugs for the cider. . . .

Redware, Crockery, and Blown Glass to set a rustic table. . . .

Wooden Spools for winding  rag rug strips. . . .
and to double as candle holders. . . . .

Vintage Baskets for storage and supplies. . . .

Yarn for needlework and crafting.

From my kitchen window, I watch the squirrels as they gather pecans, and I think how we're not so different from them. . . .Seems like every living thing feels the winter coming, , , ,
We are ALL busy. . . . Gathering Together. . . .

Lol! Yes indeed we all feel that winter coming! Usually after the first cold snap we all of the sudden realize winter is here and go into "squirrel mode".
Love your watercolors!

Cool effects with the photos. I haven't had a chance to play with BeFunky.com, yet. Makes me want to now. These should be enlarged and framed they're so pretty!
