o autumn

...laden with fruit, and stainèd
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may’st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
--William Blake, To Autumn

I know it's not officially autumn yet, but it sure feels like it is.  We've been experiencing misty mornings and cooler temperatures since September started, easily getting me in the mood to populate the shop with cozy items.  I'm with Blake: Welcome, autumn.  Come in and sit awhile.  Don't rush off!
