as the sun sets

i came home and the loveliest smell filled the air. i looked around and found that the apple tree in the front yard is in full bloom. smelling crazy awesome. and it looked just gorgeous, there in the late afternoon light as the sun was setting. so weird to be met by this smell in the fall. or what we call fall down here. this smell, not to mention the sight, which i associate so deeply with spring.

but, let's continue to something really important: the winner of last weeks vintage botanical print giveaway is the sweet ritva of lumetta. congratulations!

i must admit this giveaway thing took me by surprise. i totally felt like everyone should win and wish i had enough prints to do that. because i really appreciate all of you so very much. i love the comments and all the feedback that i get from you guys. so, i will soon be back with another giveaway.

and ritva, please send me an email to with your snail mail address
