NH’s Autumn is one of the many reasons I fell in love with this area of the United States. The slightly warm days, cool, crisp temperatures in the evening, and the slow motion fireworks show from all our trees, make this place a dreamscape for more than a month each year. Every year is so different from the last, I don’t understand how anyone could grow bored of this season.
Most of you know I love photography, especially nature photography, and though my own photography skills are at an amateur level, I adore trying to capture some of the fleeting color show, the dance of light and dark, the tug of life and death, happening all around us this time of year.

Fall is underway and it’s almost time for the holiday bustle to begin. I’ve put together this post of my cornucopia, baskets, and trees to help find a little something for a holiday centerpiece or a small tabletop decoration you might need to brighten up your fall season.
Each decor piece is given a unique name and number, which is printed on a small card, that marks the authenticity of the piece. Though some may appear similar in color or content to another, each represents itself differently. If you would like a Happiness Tree with a special design, base, or color palette, contact me and we can discuss options. Many of these pieces have ribbons and bows attached to them, for decorative purposes, but many of the ribbons or bows have been removed for clarity in the photos below. The decor can be displayed with or without the decorative ribbons and bows.
Happiness Trees are handmade wax floral arrangements which can be used for almost any occasion. From weddings, to centerpieces for the holidays, there is not an event for which these arrangements cannot be tailored. Miniature wax fruit floral arrangement is a non mechanized process in which handmade, modeling clay dough, is low-fired and the resulting fruit base is is wax dipped, by hand, then arranged and combined with other materials to form a truly unusual form of floral art. This beautiful tradition was passed down from my grandmother to me. They are somewhat fragile, especially during handling, but can last for decades.

It is feeling like spring here in NH, though we are actually in the middle of winter. Temps are creeping up during the day to fifty or sixty degrees in most places. A false spring. These two landscape paintings have been sitting around for a bit with the under painting work done. I really wasn’t sure where I wanted to go to finalize them. One is a little more clear as I see it being later in the day and the hazy version I imagine in early morning with lifting fog. I’m going to call these False Spring Morning & False Spring Afternoon.
