We have picked our way through fall. There is still a pile of apples sitting on the corner of my dining room table waiting for something to be done with them. There has been over 4 apples pies made, applesauce, and a large pile given away.
The leaves are making quite a show around here. Some trees look like they are working inside out, changing their leaves to a bright yellow leaving the rims still green, while others look as if they are mimicing a flame. Once they have given into the wind they twirl about in the air to do one final dance - which in turn makes the cats all wide eyed and crazy.
Our giant pumpkins are proudly displayed by our door and the house is all decorated for spookiness. The oldest decided he was too "old" for trick-or-treating this year, which secretly is breaking my heart into a million pieces. But the other little ones are excited to bring home their bounty of candy to gobble up and have their costumes all ready. 
This time of year always begs me to sit down and start some projects. Right now I am working on a baby quilt for a co-worker and preparing our garage to turn into a clay studio. There are projects I've pinned, ideas jotted down, and every week go to pottery class. Tomorrow I get back another batch of items from the kiln, some of the best I've done so far. 
While I seem to be documenting my day to day far better on Instagram then on here lately - I can't wait to share all my fall projects.
