Ahhh…it’s here.

The stunning copper light of Autumn.

There’s nothing quite like it. I follow the glow as it filters through the house until slowly fading to black through the windows of my bedroom office ( where I’ve craftily cropped the chaos of my desktop out of the photo)

 As you can see, my climbing rose is still happily keeping me company, no more blooms, but plenty of foliage.

You’ve gotta love Southern California!

Copper is such a great hue to really bring out the colour of your eyes. As a green-eyed girl it used to be a favourite, but try finding copper eyeshadow that doesn’t have a lot of metallic  (metallics are no longer my friends :( )

Something about these bathtubs makes me want to put on cowboy boots, get all dusty and clomp up the staircase of a saloon to have them pulled off.

They make me feel very…Rooster Cogburn

I admit, not the best visual, but there it is.

floor made of pennies

Love this copper penny floor- what a fun idea for a small room on a small budget

Just not sure about how one would go about keeping it clean.

Phew- that’s enough budget talk…

I have a small touch of copper in my kitchen sitting room.  

The patina changes with the weather, but never turns green in Santa Barbara.
