Welcome to The Toymaker’s Fall is in the Air Newsletter!


When the bold branches
Bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
Welcome wool sweaters.

Laughing Ponies

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

A Triangle Treat Basket

All you need is two pieces of different colored paper, scissors, glue and string to make these simple little hanging baskets.

Hello and hello!

Did you have a busy summer? I know we did! It seemed like school was just out and I turned around and it was September in the time it takes to sneeze.

This is my favorite time of year. The wind blows off the ocean and the night air gets cooler. The winter oranges are coming in. They are big and green now but I know by December we'll have fresh orange juice. We don't have "real weather" here so we take what small changes we can get. Fall is also a time for getting back into the rhythm and flow of days.

I wish for you some small thing of wonder, something beautiful that you catch a glimpse of, that makes the rest of the colors of your day seem brighter.

Best thoughts,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.




If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea. ~Antoine De Saint Exupery


After giving Wordpress a good, honest try I gave up and switched to Blogger.

And do say hello on facebook! I’d love to hear from you!


To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
