Fresh Cut Friday: Asters

Are you ever late for parties?  {I am.}  Liz @ Rose Vignettes hosts a great party called Fresh Cut Friday, and I always learn so much about the flower of the month from her posts.

I am late to the party again this month because we had to go to South Alabama and take care of some things before Tropical Storm Lee hit.  We are back, and now I am ready to *party*  :D

This month's flower is the aster, and I chose a dark purple.  I am so sorry about the quality of the photos, but it is heavily overcast.

This is the best candle for fall.  It is called Burlap and Barn wood, and it smells like hickory smoke, tobacco, and tweed.  *nice*

I wish y'all could smell this candle!  It is masculine, but I like it!



Please join Liz for Fresh Cut Friday if you have not done so.

Until next time...
