Autumn Hush

"Autumn is the hush before Winter." ~French Proverb

"Autumn bowed to place a beautiful crown on the Queen of morning, and her velvet robes sway merrily in the chilly breeze." ~Terri Guillonnels

Autumn fills my bones with a certain mood,
like the dark of the forest
 or a misty meadow path.
It's a longing, a yearning for something deep,
 As if all the other seasons lead to her.

So I wait for her, Her shelter
where I can lay my soul down into 
amber mystery and wake with 
golden oil in my lamp.
~Kerrie Sanderson

Pacific Greys

"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places."
~Camille Pissarro 

We are painting our kitchen oak cabinets grey. 
{as well as the laundry room, bathrooms, and hallway} 
We chose a quiet grey like the one in the kitchen below
 with the gold pendant lights...

We are doing the work ourselves, so it's going to take a while.
We are hoping to be done by December.

The Pacific grey adds another layer of the ocean's tide to our white palette and blends well with the driftwood throughout.    

"So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were struck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea." 
~Virginia Woolf
