      Thanks for playing along, Celia! I am soaking up all the fall decor inspiration I can get since winter’s chill is in the air. 🙂

    You’re so sweet to include me with all this beautiful inspiration. In the middle of an achy, hard morning spent mostly on the verge of tears, I clicked on to your gorgeous blog and smiled. Of course. It’s the Michele-effect.
    Sending you a big thank-you just for being You!
