Ah, the magic of the first snowflakes of the season. In my opinion there is nothing quite like them. Those beautiful bits of white fluff dancing in the air and then floating to the ground. We’ve had a few instances of snow–although nothing that stuck, but the beauty of those first flakes gave me a feeling of peace and hope.
My Kaye Wiggs Gracie is loving this time of year too. She is dressed for the season in a cozy winter ensemble. Her Nordic inspired dress print features lots of delicate snowflakes on a festive red background with a crystal looking waist sash. Her pine green cardigan is knit out of merino/silk yarn. It is decorated with snowflakes and matte gold sequins and crystal beads. The buttons are matte gold Czech crystals. Her beret is made with the same type of yarn, but in its natural color. A red/green pom pom sits at the top. She wears ribbed tights to keep her legs toasty warm.
The contrast of rustic matte gold mixed with icy and sparkly decorations appealed to me when designing this ensemble. Gracie’s bracelet features a bit of gold with crystal Delica beads and a crystal snowflake charm. She is carrying a crystal snowflake ornament with matte golden bells. I wonder which tree she will add this ornament to…
I’d say that fall is slipping away here in northern Illinois. The trees are mostly bear and many days are hovering right around freezing. Today we are having fall clean up done for us which is so nice. We have so many leaves that collected in piles around our house and in the ground cover and bushes. 🍁 They are being blown out and mulched into the lawn or picked up. I am thankful for the help!
What are you up to this weekend? Shopping? Getting ready for Christmas?
Sending you all happy late fall (or spring 🌷) wishes! Enjoy! 🤗❤️
