Copper Pumpkins

I will be marking down what is left of my fall merchandise this week to prepare for my Tuscan Christmas. I will be sad to see it go. Retailers rush the seasons through so quickly that I feel like consumers don't have a chance to really enjoy the moment. I am still in "smores by the fire, leaves a cracklin', hot apple cider" mode but will be pushing "tree-trimming, gift buying, eggnog drinking" mode. And to think I will be purchasing next years Christmas in's mind boggling! Here's to... slowing down, playing in the leaves, carving pumpkins, roasting marshmallows by the fire and savoring this beautiful autumn God has given us! Have a crisp and colorful day!
