Hi Folks

I haven’t disappeared into a dark hole. I’ve been trying to convince a potential client that I am the right woman for their job—and that’s taken up more hours than there are in a day.

So, here are a few scrumptious Fall photos to keep you amused while I finish up a few more stray projects.

The good news is that as of yesterday, I landed the writing job! It’s a remarkable project and as soon as they give me the go ahead to blog about the book, I’ll share all the delicious details.

Meanwhile, I’ve also been doing some glamorous ghostwriting, lining up photo shoots for my next book for Gibbs Smith, scanning photos for a query for Coastal Living, and writing a story about a really sweet Georgia couple for Log Home Design Ideas magazine. Whew!

So while I daydream about making even more cornucopia-like arrangements of Indian corn, gourds and Fall foliage around the house, instead I must write the Introductory chapters of my new, exciting book project.

Barbara so glad you got the writing job. When we chatted about it I just felt like you would get it and you sounded excited about it too (even sitting in the parking lot waiting for Mom! lol) They chose the right person and I know the bloggers will go crazy when they find out what it's about! Congrats!

Congrats Barbara, how exciting. I love your autumn pictures, especially the truck. Autumn is my favorite season, it's also my daughters name.

Congrats on the writing job! I too dream of making cornucopia-like arrangements ... but, alas, I usually have to write about them instead.

Love the truck!
