Yesterday was the first day of grey for us - after 78 days of sun.  Now, that's unheard of around here in Pacific Northwest Washington State.  When it rained early this morning, something was strangely familiar about it!

I notice that beautiful Autumn colours seem more vivid with a grey sky.  It is lovely!  Time to don our coats, boots, and berets.

Time to enjoy a good read by the fire.

Thanks to Romy and Clare { colorful ceramic pottery from Jasper, IN } for curating a cozy treasury on Etsy.com - aptly named By the Fire, featuring terrific Art and Craft for the Autumn season.
