  • Hung out in a favorite tree today with my favorite little guy.
  • I'm sure gonna miss this view when the leaves are all gone! Forecast calls for snow tomorrow evening, on Halloween night. What the what?!
  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a
  • The hills are alive. Looking Glass Rock in the distance, as seen today from the #blueridgeparkway .
  • My favorite part of all of these photo shoots for my upcoming  picnic book has been eating the props! Enjoyed this pumpkin whoopie pie today on an impromptu picnic with @glennbenglish and Huxley on the #blueridgeparkway.

  • Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina at suuuuunset. ?
  • They won't fess up for certain, but I'm fairly sure the flock finds autumn to be their favorite season, too.
  • To celebrate all the photo shoots that we completed this week (three in 8 days!!!), we took it easy this morning, and whipped up this challah French toast, stacked with my homemade peach lavender butter, Foothills bacon, rosemary candied pecan pieces, and sorghum molasses blended with maple syrup.

What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope your holiday was wonderful. Ours was the definition of the word feast! Oh my!

Here’s a round-up of a few things that tickled my fancy, piqued my curiosity, and made my stomach rumble this week:
*Totally smitten with Designerica, especially the honeycomb ring.
*Garden Betty’s brand new chicken coop is gorgeous!
*Interested in this food blogger conference out in Seattle in June (never been to that city, but many of you readers know how very much I heart the PNW).
*Completely captivated by everything Hank Shaw does.
*Been nibbing on this stollen for breakfast all week with hot coffee.
*These brussels sprouts are seriously calling my name.
*The Anthology Winter Gift Guide is full of sublime eye candy.
*Thinking of making these soon.
*Garden & Gun is really growing on me.
*Picked up a live, root ball-bound Christmas tree here today (at wholesale pricing it cost only $30!!!).

I’m also totally digging just how much Huxley loves playgrounds these days. He’s crazy about slides and swings and log-like things he can crawl through. We took advantage of the fresh air today and played at a local playground before heading out to pick up our tree. He’s seriously addicted to playing outdoors. We might very well end up building him a tiny version of these more grandiose playgrounds out here.

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, may it be grand.
