The Season’s First Snow, and a New Shop!

As the first snows drifted down, we found ourselves huddled at the dining room table watching deer in the yard nibble at the apple cores from our pies, and later, bundled to go for a nice, snowy hike around Lake Como this past weekend.  This evening, Halloween, will be our first time handing out candy together, and we carved pumpkins for the first time in years.  It’s been so wonderful to savor these changing seasons in the States, and all of the surrounding festivities feel new and magical again.  In time for the approaching holidays, we changed our shop format to make purchasing a little easier.  We can now be found on Etsy, and hope you’ll stop by to see some of the things we’ve been working on.


We hiked around Lake Como while the water was perfectly still and Tundra Swans giggled among themselves like feral children.
