Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley November 1, 2013

I took a walk with my neighbor yesterday, it’s a weekly ritual of ours. Around the corner from our homes is this beautiful tree filled with autumn colors, I had to return to capture it! We’ve enjoyed the most amazing weather here for weeks, blue skies and warm afternoons with this great show of autumn color, I don’t ever want it to end.

  4. Kate,
    I love your weekend reads!! I always check them out first thing on Saturday!

    I went to the BHG website looking at your coffee colored items –and I wanted to find the color palette page that is in the magazine each month (I wanted to find the coffee page with the colors names) do you know if they are on the website?

    Thanks again for all the great info on your blog
