Autumn is here!

The fields are changing color and soon the trees will too.

Happy first day of Fall everyone!! I absolutely love this time of year:) I find it the most inspiring. Ideas swarm consistently and as I've said in the past, it's handy to keep a pen and notebook on hand wherever you go! 

The garden beds are cleaned up and only a few pepper plants are left. I know it kinda sounds odd, but I like it. Even though the garden was okay this year... there's something about wiping the slate clean and planning for next year that's exciting. 

With the crafting and sewing... well that's taking on some new projects. There's a couple things I want to refinish ~(furniture wise) ~ before it gets too cold.

And check out these awesome candle sticks I made with the help of my hubby! Pinterest did it again...

They were made from old oak banisters we had laying around. We cut them to various sizes and drilled a hole at the top with a 1 1/2 inch spade bit. Sanded and white washed, it was complete!

Sewing wise?

Check out the projects below. You may recognize them from my Instagram.

An imperfect pillow.... but the shades are great together!

And... these neighborly houses make the perfect backdrop for my daughter's American girl doll area:)

There's a ton more things I've started but can't snap pictures of. Ya know, Christmas is coming and I can't give away too many ideas;) 

Lastly, what better way to end the first day of Autumn than with my very first quilted piece for sale in the Etsy shop! Now, people, this is exciting! I can just picture this wall hanging perfectly in a little baby boy's nursery! It measures roughly 28 by 28 and.... I used my own pattern for this piece! Navy blue, oranges, and yellows never looked so good:)

Happy trails to colorful leaves, cool nights, bonfires, caramel apples, pumpkins, and the sweet smell of Autumn!
