Autumn Delights

This image is part of a vignette on my mantel in celebration of Autumn which is almost here. I love to decorate for fall and love to include some vintage books in my displays. I took this photo for Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds.

Mendocino Moments…

One of my favorite scenes to capture in the town of Mendocino. It was a gorgeous warm afternoon last Thursday. I first celebrated a birthday in Mendocino almost 20 years ago; it has become a special destination ever since. I love the architecture of the homes; most were built in the late 1800s; the town is so picturesque perched along the cliff looking out to the grand Pacific Ocean.
