to celebrate the publication of my new book


Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.

This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.

The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.

Fall Colors

The fall colors this past weekend were indescribable. It was nature at its best. Here are a few shots I have taken over the past few weeks.

We went up to Lake Champlain to celebrate my birthday. During the two short days we were there, the colors changed so much. I find that taking photos of foilage is really difficult. It just never looks as beautiful as when you are actually there in real time. Zooming in sometimes helps.

I love this spot on the road outside of Middlebury at the campus for the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference. The colors here were incredible.

Closer to home, I found these bits of fall color.

Enjoy the season. It is definitely my favorite time of year.

Happy belated birthday. I hope your year is filled with beauty,creativity, and love! Your photos are amazing. I always find my photos of fall foliage always fall short of the "real" thing. I am hoping that I will be able to get some great shots this weekend on my way to Rhinebeck! Best always,Alissa

I'm with you on the time of year. I got a new camera yesterday and immediately took some more photos. Later this afternoon I'm going painting with three other gals to a local park. They work in watercolor, I work in oils. Can't wait!
