Yea! My favorite season. Autumn

Don’t you just love Autumn?

Crisp air, falling leaves, no more humidity.

But best of all, caramel apples.

I dearly love caramel apples. Our local grocery store carries them quite cheap. And many times, they have them for a dollar apiece. They last a long time so I really stock up on them.

I justify at least one every day because if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, think what two can do?

But it’s not just caramel apples. I find I like decorating in general in the fall rather than at other times. Maybe it’s because the “nesting” effect kicks in and I like all things cozy.

Like flannel and plaids.



Like scarves. This one was on sale at Etsy, but would be easy to make. This one isn’t lined so it would be important to use flannel that does not have a wrong or right side.

A bunch of these acorns in a glass cylinder-type container would be so cute. I gathered a bunch over the weekend.painted acorns



Then there are these adorable place mats. I would use a fabric that is used to line quilts.


My daughter made me one of these a couple of years ago. Hers used rusty lids but if you can’t find those, this is cute today.

And isn’t this a sweet arrangement. You would have to replace the apples as they are eaten.

God bless and have a great day.
