First of Fall

Happy September 1st!

I’ll be honest … I’m not as ready for fall as I usually am. This summer has been great and I’m still hanging on to the last threads. The kids go back to school in a few days and so I fully expect that by the end of the week I’ll be back to my normal autumn-loving self – lighting candles and pulling out my favorite fall sweaters and craving hot tea.

Last year I painted this cute Autumn Essentials watercolor print and just looking at it reminds me how wonderful this next season is.

Slippers. The sound of rain. Changing leaves. Tall boots. Cozy, warm colors and pumpkin pie.


The original autumn essential painting was scanned and turned it into a FREE! printable pdf for your enjoyment (here’s a post about how I do these, if you’re curious).


It’s a fun piece to put out for the fall (maybe on your entry table? Or on your mantle?) or to give a friend who loves this time of year.

You can download the print from The Archive (login/sign up below), then print on your favorite paper. I printed mine on matte photo paper to get the best image quality, but watercolor paper would be a great option as well.


To download this print, I invite you to join (or log in to) our library of freebies by clicking the image below. You’ll have access to all of our best printables, fonts, clipart and templates.


Enjoy … and happy fall.

free easter goodies

Two years ago, the oh-so-talented Lindsay and I collaborated on this set of prints for the Easter season. The mix of her lovely lettering, pretty watercolor backgrounds and my favorite Easter-morning saying makes for a cheerful collection.

Using Lindsay’s artwork as inspiration, I played around with some holiday table settings. There are lots of do-it-yourself ideas here as well as simple ways to set a pretty table. Perhaps it can inspire your Easter decorations again this year.

linen + white + industrial basket + vintage glassware

and the perfect little place cards

printed paper + ribbon-tied napkin + coordinating chocolates in a pretty dish

with a lovely print to send home with each guest

fresh flowers + pretty china + playful polkadots

paper plates + candy appetizer + crepe paper flower

a name tag tied to a flower makes a special party favor

. . . . . . . . . . .

So does that give you any ideas for your Easter table?

If you would like to use Lindsay’s artwork as part of your decoration, we have put together a great collection for you.

This is a printable file with each of these designs in all three colorways {teal, green, navy}.

You can print as many as you need, give them as gifts or use in your own home.

And the best part?
