I have been so busy with working and with my Etsy site and now with a new site for fabric, wallpaper, gift wrap and decals. I love fabric and I'm having fun building my new site with spoonflower.com . You can find my page at: spoonflower.com/profiles/mypetalpress
In the garden in mid November I still have a few roses blooming, penstemon blooming and some fall color still going on. I love living on this side of the mountains, here we are in November and still the garden has a few flowers and the ground is workable. I still have plants in pots I have bought over summer that need to get planted but I keep putting it off still. Leaves to rake and plants to cut back. Winter is just around the corner so I better get busy. I even have a few blooms on my ceonothus California lilac. Finally done at the nursery so now I can concentrate on my Etsy website for the holidays and my new fabric designs. Also, news is next year my pressed fall leaves I sell on Etsy for Thanksgiving table décor will be featured in Better Homes and Gardens Midwest edition magazine next fall for 2014, can't wait to see what they have done with their photo shoot that is happening tomorrow.

New idea for a furniture decal, what's cool is it's temporary but durable and leaves no residue and you can reposition as often as you like. Go to my Etsy shop to see more art and ideas for decals. Also coming soon is wall borders, so many uses for these decals and so fun. This one is a Chocolate Cosmos

Wow, look what we got today 4-5" of snow, then some gorgeous sunshine. This cherry tree was in full bloom with a new snowfall. The sun made it all okay and I know it will all be gone by the end of the day. Spring was only a couple of days ago now I hope we can get on with it!

New Helleborus x ballardiae "Pink Frost". This one is a warm soft pink, really lovely so I couldn't resist buying one although I had already said my famous last words to start the season "I don't need anymore plants" WRONG and then I see one I have to have. Well actually I saw another I had to have too Pulmonaria "Mrs. Moon" that is peeking through in this photo down on the left, pretty coral pink. I love these because they are early early bloomers, February here in the Pacific Northwest. They also press well, course that is how I justify buying them so I got to get out there and get some cut and ready to press. Oh I should get them planted too right! There are allot of new Helleborus out there so I'm sure I'll see another must have. Both are great for the shade garden and get very nice leaves after their flowering so they look nice all summer. The Helleborus leaves are evergreen and the Pulmonaria get great big leaves but are not evergreen through winter.
Count down to Spring, three more days and I can change my blogs winter scene of the snowman to something Spring, can't wait for things to come with Spring.
