Taking Time Out for Challenge #66

It's easy to see how I was inspired by the beautiful view outside this gorgeous Time Out Autumn window ...


I quickly reached out for my favorite stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn and, boom... here it is!

 
Though I don't usually use props in my photos,
I couldn't resist leaving my newest little tea pot in the picture.

 
and from another point of view -
you see, I'm still looking for the perfect light!

 
It is a rather gloomy day today, but this card [with all that gorgeous grey] makes me happy in spite of it!
 
Hope you have a fun Autumn weekend planned ... thanks so much for stopping by!

E.T.A!

This is the perfect take on our photo, I love how you captured the contrast of colours. And as for the teapot...love it too. I am a bit obsessed with teapots.....got a gorgoeus Japanese iron teapot and cups for Xmas and bought myself a pot and tea cup and saucer covered in pictures of the little buttons. My Mum even knitted me one of the old tea caddys covered in real buttons to go with it...see obsessed!! Oh and thanks for joining Time Out
