fall in california

The pods on our wisteria tree has been popping now that fall is here. They snap fairly loudly when they pop, and on the ground you can find many open pods and seeds. I picked a few up the other day and was surprised at how hard and sturdy both the pods and seeds are. Charlie is teething and seems to enjoy gnawing on the pods.

The weather hasn't cooled down much during the day even though it's fall, so I let myself buy a couple of summery tops from Target recently. I like to layer anyway, so I figure even when it cools down a bit more, I can still wear them under cardigans, especially the vintage-y floral one.

I've been working on some new things, and hope to update the shop in the next couple of weeks or so. It's been taking a bit longer than I had expected (I forgot how long it takes me to finally be happy with a series of designs), but I'm excited. I'm getting a bit tired of looking at the old designs!

I have never heard of wisteria before (only the lane where the desparate housewives live!), but they look beautiful! Your new tops are lovely too, I am loving ruffles too at the moment :)
I have tagged you if you get a chance come along and see what it is all about :)

Ooh, great choices. I especially like the first one.

Can't wait to see the new designs. I'm still in the experimentation stages of mine, but hope to have some stuff up soon.

Our new puppy is 4 months old and in the teething phase. He likes to nibble on EVERYTHING -- especially our toes and fingers. It's incredibly cute but painful! We're trying to get him to stop...

I hope Charlie is ok. Wisteria is poisonous.....
