autumn is here

Happy Autumn!
So happy that fall is here! Our weather is still a little warm, but hopefully soon those crisp, cool days will be here! I have been super busy with getting my fall items for the shoppe made and ready for my reopening in early October.
I celebrated my "32" birthday a couple weeks ago and spent a nice quite day just relaxing. My mom sent me a birthday box full of family treasures. These sweet Pyrex bowls were a wedding gift when my parents got married. So, I am excited to have them now and they are perfect for fall!
I went to a antique shop and treated myself to these sweet peach vintage canisters. I'll have to keep my eye out for the other sizes to complete the set!
 I finished my mini apple wall quilt! I hand quilted it, so it took a little longer, but love how it turned out!
 And, to finish it off I used a sweet apple print for the binding. I am thinking of starting a little mini quilt for each season, so maple leaves are up next!
A few peaks at what will be in my shoppe coming early October for fall!! Pretty vintage tablecloth floral appliqué tea towels,
pretty maple leaf coasters,
fall pillow covers, and lots more! I will be posting once it gets closer to my shoppe reopening!

I hope that you are all doing wonderfully!! I have lots of catching up to do! I am on Instagram daily, so you can pop on over and visit with me there, too!

Wishing you all a beautiful first week of autumn!! xo



  1. Your little apple quilt is just delightful! When I married in the 70's I wanted an apple kitchen in reds and black wrought iron. You can imagine how hard it was to find anything red in the time of harvest gold and orange and mushroom cannisters. I would have made that same little quilt back then to hang on the wall. I just love it!

  2. So pretty! I love the pillow and those bowls are so special.
