We are enjoying what I call 'Indian Summer' but my husband says it's not hot enough. Whatever ! We are enjoying such beautiful colours and some nice warm days !
Last night I went for a little walk to pick up our mail and found a package from the Netherlands. A friendly & talented blogger friend, Marja at Marja's Stamping Addiction , whose work I've been admiring for the past year sent me a surprise !
I'm a lucky lady ! First is a gorgeous bookmark. Marja stamped the lady with her own homemade stamp and drew in details. You can see she is a talented artist ! I love this style and was SO excited to receive this !
And that would be a big surprise already but she also sent a piece of her encaustic work that I admired at her Blog. I was excited over it as I felt it was a piece of beautiful artwork and not a card to send out. I've been recently introduced to encaustic art (just looking, not doing) by an artist friend and then to receive this from Marja I am thrilled !
Thank you again Marja, special gifts from a talented lady ! If you have a chance it's well worth your time to check out her work at her blog.
Yesterday morning as the sun was rising I noticed how it made the tops of our trees in their Autumn glory 'sparkle'. Nature is so beautiful. I ran out with my camera in my PJs to take some photos and I've included a few here.

When we moved to our home, there was barely grass growing with zero trees & plants. Many years later and we have a mini forest ! We are enjoying the gardens as they mature.
Well that was a longer post ! Next one is short with a little Halloween Twinchie !
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
