signs . Columbus, MS No. 2

I was in Columbus, Mississippi last week to tape a Midmorning Moms segment for WCBI’s morning program. The television station is across the street from one of my favorite spots in Downtown Columbus — a small courtyard under the shadow of a brick building facade that bears the remnants of several hand-painted advertising signs from years gone by. I’ve already shared some of the letters here, but I try to photograph them every chance I get. Enjoy!

One of  my favorite poems about October!  We’re excited to have a touch of coolness making it’s way into our Mississippi October eves this week!

morning letters . Wednesday 101514


Wow! I haven’t picked up my brushes in about two weeks, and I feel rusty! Still, it’s time to jump back in. Happy National Grouch’s Day! Here’s a little Wednesday sentiment in honor of my favorite Grouch!

October! My Favorite Month is Here! [printable calendar]


October is here! It’s my favorite month of the year — probably because it hosts my birthday along with all the other fun Fall traditions we love to enjoy! Around the first of October each year, we traipse up the attic ladder to retrieve the boxes of fall decorations. They are filled with various pumpkin-themed artwork from my kids, vintage Halloween happies and jack-o-lanterns from when I was young and things we’ve bought along the way. We don’t go in for spooky around here, but we all look forward to filling our house with ways to celebrate the changing season. We’re saving the front porch scarecrows for this weekend, but I thought I would share a few glimpses of our October happiness. Plus, I’m excited to share a little scarecrow smile in this month’s printable calendar. Download it here or click the image below, and print yours! As usual, it includes a little painted sentiment at the bottom to share when the month is done. Happy Fall, Y’all!
