The second photo is an ornament that I made nearly 25 years ago, using cornstarch dough and cookie cutters. In real life it looks very pretty and delicate . . . one of my favorites!
This pretty doe stood up and eyed me cautiously as I came partway across the yard to take her photo, but after that she spent the whole morning curled up in the corner of the yard, chewing her cud and admiring the view of the city.
Autumn came and went really quickly this year. Hardly had time to enjoy it before– surprise!– record-breaking snow!
