~End-Of-October Blessings and Free Shipping~

I cannot believe we're heading into the end of October already! The studio is humming away filling Christmas orders. The days are shorter and cooler. Fall will be coming to an end all-too-quickly. Many blessings still on the horizon here at RoseCreekCottage Studios:

~deck and porch furniture are stowed away for the winter

~the gardens are cut down and turned under for a long sleep

~the kitchen continues to fill with all our favorite aromas of fall baking and comfort food meals

~heavier quilts are on the beds

~the birds are filling up at the feeders

~squirrels are busy scurrying through the woods hiding nuts for the winter

I think these call for a Free Shipping Coupon to be used on our website until Friday: Use coupon code FRO at checkout~

Have a Blessed End-of-October wherever you are in the world~

We watched Ella's soccer game last weekend. It was so nostalgic to see my 7-year-old
granddaughter playing, while her daddy coached her team. sigh. I got tears in my eyes as I looked at him standing there, coffee cup in hand, coaching his daughter: MY long-ago 7-year-old coaching HIS 7-year-old. Life....full circle once again~

Happy Fall~
