Autumn and Black Wrought Iron

I am so thankful for life.
I enjoy the rainy, wet sidewalks that reflect the stop lights.
The smell of recent rain makes the air feel clean as you breathe it in.
The chill is invigorating.
The black wrought iron is cold.
My hands find the pockets in my winter white wool coat.
This is the end of the autumn season, in my mind.
Farewell, friend. 
Au revoir, my lovely.
The whisperings of Winter has now won my attention.

So what bargains on this Black Friday did you get? Or, did you snuggle down while others shopped?      This photo from Horchow and was the inspiration we used for the walls at the Old Sweetwater Cottage Master.

I avoid the Black Friday craziness! I'm almost done with my shopping by now anyway :D

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

I can't imagine braving the crowds, from what I've read about Black Friday! We'll head down to Washington State in a week or two, when things have quietened down and the just before the last-minute shoppers start to panic. There'll be lots left!

No bargains for me this black Friday. I have stayed in with my wonderful hubby and furry kids. It is a beautifully blessed day.

I went out...I did, and I got a deal on toys for the kids...nothing grand, no big ticket items. but I was psyched all the same!
