BRITAIN magazine for a special feature on Scotland (for future travel inspiration - more on that as plans take shape) - this issue has an article celebrating 150 years of William Morris. In addition to the editorial, there are a few ads for products with his designs ranging from puzzles to needlepoint. I couldn't find Strawberry Thief offered on Wentworth's site although pictured in the ad (above), but did find a few other Morris favorites, like The Lion from his forest series. Really love this one. There is also at least one Rossetti and a Waterhouse currently on offer. As these puzzles are crafted from wood, they'd certainly provide years of enjoyment.

I begin this post with a head-scratching lament of what happened to October. Where did she go? Now, we are nearly done with November and I must guess the time-snatching Goblins are at work here. In North Carolina, we've had some truly glorious autumnal weather and I've wandered my local woods as much as I can. Week before last, I attended the Carolina Renaissance Festival beneath the most perfect blue sky. Some highlights from hawks to hounds.
