Yesterday I got to wear boots for the first time this season! I love fall. I love seeing my breath in the cold, crunching through freshly fallen leaves, drinking apple cider, making stew, and I especially love boots. I’m swooning over this pair in particular. If it’s autumn where you are, don’t forget to savor [...]
My impatiens were looking scraggly, so I replanted my window boxes today. At the garden shop I had so many winter flower options to choose from—pansies or more pansies. I don’t even like pansies! I think my pansy aversion stems from my hatred of the pansies in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. Tips on other annuals [...]
The trees around here have been positively bursting with fall color over the past few weeks. I’d say they were just as lovely as last year’s leaves. I’m sure most of you have pressed leaves before, but if not it’s super simple. Just gather the prettiest leaves you can find, sandwich them in sheets of wax [...]
I’m not usually a big coffee drinker, but when Starbucks offers their pumpkin spice lattes each fall I can’t resist. I know I could probably find a great recipe to make my own at home, but it wouldn’t be nearly as special if I knew I could have it anytime. Cute boots and a cozy [...]
I’m not usually one to buy fresh cut flowers for no reason at all, but this fall bouquet was begging to come home with me. Isn’t it stunning? I think I should make a point to have fresh flowers around the house more often!
Well, I can cross #9 off my Twelve by 2012 list—Daniel and I went canoeing last weekend at a nearby lake. Paddling around the lake was all right, but at the far side we found a hidden stream. It was very shallow and blocked by tree branches in many places, but trying to see how [...]
We’ve had fall-ish weather over the past several days! YES! It was almost 90° on Thursday, but I woke up on Friday to temperatures in the 50°s. It might be premature since I know this lovely cool weather isn’t here to stay yet, but I pulled out my boots and wore them all weekend. Do [...]
My roasted acorns didn’t turn out great, so I tried roasting acorn squash instead. It was shockingly good and so simple to make! Now acorn squash is my favorite fall treat (besides spiced apple cider of course). Just look at the scrumptious puddle of caramel dipping sauce that forms in the center! 1 medium acorn squash, halved [...]
I’ve decided to put all my inside-the-house projects on hold until winter weather hits. It’s too gorgeous outside to spend my days painting the basement instead of working in the yard!
