It’s October now, and starting to really feel like fall here in Ohio. I can’t say I’m looking forward to THE-SEASON-THAT-SHALL-NOT-BE-NAMED, which comes after fall and rhymes with “splinter,” but I still really LOVE fall. And now that I’ve had this lovely little blog going for over six years, I’ve shared a number of fall crafts, food, and festivites along the way. Here’s a little round up of some favorites!
Last fall, mama B visited in October and helped me deck out the house a little with some sweet decor, which I recently pulled out of the basement to use again. LOVE IT.
A few years ago, I bought little pumpkins at the Nashville farmers market and came up with a few new centerpieces. I need to do this again!!
Last year, this sweet little argyle wreath was inspired by my husband’s late grandmother’s fabrics. She quilted all the time, and my mother-in-law gave me a stack of these pretty squares. I used a few on this wreath, and still can’t decide how to use the rest!
Pumpkin and Squash Treats
SO MANY!! My favorites are:
Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake and Protein Bars
Baked Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes
Chocolate Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Hersheys Kiss Acorns
Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Soup
Festivities and Photos
One of my FAVORITE fall festivities is the Wine and Harvest fest in my little hometown. Best part? The Pumpkin Race! Literally, a few people get into giant pumpkin boats and race across the river. It’s awesome.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, of course, and I love decorating our pretty table. Another wonderful part of fall!
So that’s it. I love me some fall. A few years ago I took a photography class with my 35mm camera (not digital!) and took random photos all over the place. This one of a paper pumpkin is still one of my favorites. Happy Fall, Y’all!!
